Dropped off along the water front on our bus tour to find somewhere to eat, several of us went to Dimillo's for lunch. It's a floating restaurant with great views and atmosphere. The food served, crab cakes and grilled fish tacos were (excuse me) freaking...More

Demillos lunch is exactly what we wanted and expected, but it's far from fine cuisine. Great views outdoors on the marina. Tuna carpaccio and scallop sandwich were excellent, as was the service. I gave only three stars to a dinner last night that was better...More

Stopped in for dinner on the deck. The view is wonderful. Service was great and the food marvelous. Had seafood pasta with shrimp, lobster, mussels and scallops. My wife had salmon. Both dishes were excellent.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I have a reservation for a large party coming up in a week at DiMillo's. We are very much looking forward to it! We have one VEGAN eater and one vegetarian in the group. Can anything be made without at animal products (no butter, cheese, eggs, etc.) for the vegan eater? I imagine the cheese can be omitted from the salads but I have a question if the candied nuts are made with butter. Also, I am not sure if the menu posted online is the most cirrent jowever ai swee there is a pasta with marinara sauce which includes a meatball--is the meat seperste from the sauce to begin with or is it made together? Any and all help you may provide is greatly apprexiated. Thank you so much!!!

Portland Maine is a premiere beer city. The local beer is to die for. I would recommend taking a break from the bland and try some real beer!

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.
