My wife and I both enjoyed very good meals with great service. They allowed substitutions and were very accommodating. Nice location with good people watching. Felt more upscale than other tourist locations in the area.

Good service and nice happy hour specials. Cozy atmosphere. Convenient Old Port location. A bit more for dinner haven't tried that yet. Looks like some inventive seafood dishes.

Lobster was very good but pricy. However, this was a quiet place to have lunch. Good food, great service, would recommend

We meet a group of friends for drinks and the bar service was very good here. The beer selection is good. And, the drink menu is very good. Next time dinner!

Stopped by for some Littlenecks and a cocktail with friends. The littlenecks were fresh and were served ice cold. Very good.

Description
TO VIEW OUR CURRENT MENU, please visit our website. The Old Port Sea Grill, opened in the fall of 2002, is located in the heart of Portland's historic Old Port district. Our modern interior features a custom concrete bar, a large lounge area and a dining room that can accommodate up to 60 guests and features a 250 gallon salt water fish tank. Our seafood driven menu focuses on a variety of local and imported fresh fish and shellfish, with an emphasis on east coast cold water oysters and other raw bar offerings. We pair that with a food-friendly wine list, local craft-style beers on draft and an extensive cocktail program to make for an exciting dining experience.
