Susan's is a standby for great (not greasy) fried seafood (oysters, clams, fish, etc.). I prefer it for take out but the informal picnic tables inside would be appealing to some. While there are other restaurants in Portland with similar fare, this is the only one that I know of "off the pennisula."

Well worth the trip a little north of downtown. You can tell the locals eat there. Great fish and chips, clams and chowda. Not fancy at all, but good portions and made to order. Rather ecelectic interior in an old garage but don't be fooled by the looks. The food is good.

We really enjoyed the seafood chowder, it is a rich tasting broth loaded with excellent tasting seafood and small amount of potatoes for balance. The corn chowder is the best we have had for flavor and quality. The onion rings are cooked to perfection and you will love the flavor of the onion in each bite. Likewise the fries are some of the best we have had in a long time. Sadly the fried seafood was a little over battered for our taste and detracts from very good quality seafood they use. Prices are more than fair for quantity and quality. We will go back for the chowder anytime.

This is my idea of a 5 star restaurant. SImply the best fish and chips in Portland (not to mention clams, oysters . . . ). Nothing fancy or pretentious. Just great food at a good price. Not many places like this left in increasingly upscale Portland.

On our back from a trip through Labrador and Newfoundland, we stropped at the this restaurant (and left our motorhome next door for an oil change). The fish and chips were fabulous and we topped it off with a really indulgent dessert of fried sliced bananas, peanut butter ice cream, hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and cherries!! YUMMY
