This restaurant is a boat moored to the dock, so already a fun experience. We sat outside with a water view. And the food...! I had the delicious Captain's salad with haddock soup, and my husband had the lobster mac and cheese. They were all...More

Great place by the harbor with nice views. Great food. Scampi, calamari were tasty. Terrible service. Server forgot to bring wine. Claimed to be busy, but she sat at one customer's table nearby two times to chit chat.

The appetizers and ambiance were on point. It was great to find a robust children's menu with options comparable to the adult options.

Very often a restaurant with a novel location (a large boat tied to a dock) will be more about that location than the food. However, in this case, that was not the situation. The dining area was very nice, with two level seating on the...More

Very nice dining atmosphere. Parking is "comped" when you eat your meal here. Ask for an outside patio table on the second floor for a wonderful experience on the waterfront.

We really loved it here. A small wait to dine outside but it was worth it. We had the brown butter crap spaghetti and pecan crusted haddock. We both loved our food. Good service and great view

We always try to stop into DiMillo's during our visits to Portland whether it be drinks at the bar or lunch. The service/staff are friendly and inviting and the food is delicious with fair pricing.

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.
