The fresh haddock was perfect! The flavor and dish were cooked wonderfully and the presentation was excellent. Sitting outside near the harbor made for a perfect evening!

We were guests at a part in the second-floor event space. Food was terrific. We enjoyed chicken piccata, perfectly cooked salmon with a maple sauce, salad, veggies, potatoes and rice pilaf, with a lovely dessert spread. I loved the mini whoopie pies!

Located on the waterfront, overlooking the harbor and the Portland skyline next to a marina.Serving lunch & dinner, seafood is the specialty, but other menu items are offered. Great nautical atmosphere, with water views. Outside seating in warm weather, and a function rooms upstairs for private parties. High quality.
