“J's Oyster House”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The trip to Portland, Maine would not be complete had we not visited J's Oyster House. The vibe, seafood, and wharf-like atmosphere is a must see and be careful of those heavy-handed drinks.

“Great place to wander and watch people!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This area was right outside the hotel doors. Lots of tourists for good reason- tons of great restaurants and places to get a drink. Easy walk with the view of the wharfs and some shops to visit as well.

“Nice place to walk”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The commercial street is where the wharf is. A very nice place to walk. Very quiet and serene and yet has the commercial touch of all the nice restaurants and stores

“Great area”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We lived downtown for about 6 wks so we got very familiar with this area. We loved walking down commercial st. and just window shopping and people watching. It is a wonderful place!! The atmosphere is sooo layer back and you can even smell the fresh seafood!! Love the harbor right there as well.
