Beautiful spot to spend a wintry Saturday; unfortunately the fish and chips would have been better from a frozen Bird's Eye preparation. The fish was served as if it was meatballs and the standard fries - just average. A big disappointment indeed. My wife had the lamb burger which she liked. Expected a great meal from a place with such... More

Always great food and service! I've gone the last 2 years for my anniversary and today took my daughter because she loved the truffle fries we brought home last year. Today was even better than it's been in the past. The food was so good I had to request the server make me stop eating!

We arrange dinner at the Grill House each year after our family attends the Magic of Christmas show at the Merrill. This year we see major improvements in the decor and menu. The steaks rival those at the Capital Grill. Well done

Always wowed by this waterfront Year-round restaurant. The food is the best, fresh, eclectic and plenty of it. I had a cup of clam chowder and the tuna roll both on the "starter menu". The decor is also fresh and trendy.

We wanted to eat in one upscale eatery during our visit to Portland. After some searches, we saw this was the place to go. It was popular with locals and required reservations, which was exactly the type of place we wanted to experience. It was easy to book through Open Table, and I was impressed when Gabby called to confirm... More

Went here for a birthday dinner with my husband and young daughter. The decor is stunning- modern nautical, and cushy high-backed chairs. Very welcoming and comfortable. We sat by the window and even though it was December and dark, we enjoyed looking at the river at night. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. My 10 yo prefers pasta when... More

I went to RRG last summer and it did not turn out well. The manager made it right with us. We agreed to go back and did so recently. This was a completely different experience. The atmosphere was so pretty all decorated for Christmas and all the employees were very friendly. This time the food was outstanding and we had... More

I fell in love with it the moment I walked in. The fact that the staff is friendly and the food is delicious makes this... More
