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 enjoyed our lunch on the deck, nice atmosphere. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly. We had steamed lobster, lobster roll, lobster stew, and crab cakes. We came to Maine expecting to be wowed by the lobster and the crab cakes stole the show! Overall, fun to have lunch aboard a boat, definitely recommend those crab cakes! Cute gift shop too! Snagged a made in Maine blueberry candle.

We were in Portland for one night. We picked this because we happened to run across it on a walk. The service was wonderful and food was great. It is on the port and really a nice place, I would recommend it to anyone that likes lobster. It was the freshest I have ever had.

This classic restaurant is a huge boat that floats up and down with the tide. We recently visited twice during our weekend stay because the people were so friendly and the drinks were great. Not to mention the huge bar area and the great view. On Saturday, we ate at the bar and wanted to try everything. The fried oysters were amazing! The most tender I have ever had. We also tried the lobster mac and cheese which was huge with lots of lobster. Next up the lobster roll which is on the lunch menu but you can get it at the bar anytime. Lastly the french onion soup and the chowder were very good as well. Drinks are free pour and generous. I would recommend a stop.

The most important thing of this place is the way how it was born is a true exit story when I was there I really feel a "good vibration" the food and the wine are goods but it doesn't matter
