Description: Our restaurant actually floats, and because it is surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views of Portland Harbor. Our outside decks are great spots to see the sights while enjoying a meal or cocktail. Maine lobster is what we do here and we do it better than anyone.

We have tried DiMillo's a couple of times. But we just have not had a great meal there. It is in a great location on the water. If we go again it will just be for drinks.

There are other places on the Portland waterfront where you can get seafood, but this is probably one of the three fanciest. Unique setting, very attentive wait staff and very good food. I was there for lunch, and had the haddock dinner, and because we were on our way further downeast had to eat quickly. Everyone in the party was very satisfied with the quality and amount of their meals. Wish that we'd been able to stay longer ... I'll be back for dinner my next trip to take full advantage of the occasion.

We ate lunch there on a Saturday. I had a Lobster Roll ( $17.00) and my husband had the Seafood Alfredo that has lobster, shrimp and scallops ($29.00) Both were great and a good amount of seafood. Tender meat and no sand in the scallops.
It is a nice restaurant that used to be a car carrier boat. Free parking if you get your ticket stamped. Very clean and friendly. Next time, I think we would sit in the bar area as the decorattions, I thought, were a little more nautical.
Restrooms very clean.

The restaurant is on a large "boat" that sits ancohred in the water (does not rock from waves though). It can be pricey but it is quite elegant, the food is delicious and the staff could not be more friendly.
