We love Sillys!! Great menu for vegetarians. Great beer menu. Delicious fries. Fun atmosphere and cute trivia card selection to entertain you while you wait.

My husband, daughter, and I stopped at Silly's for lunch during our stay in Portland. The menu is extensive and has a lot of great selections. I am a vegan and was happy to see many different choices that aren't just a veggie burger or hummus wrap. I got a bio diesel tofu wrap which was awesome. It was messy... More

Amazing food for carnivores, vegetarians, and vegans!!! We got the vegan nachos and they had to have been 5 pounds. They were huge! Husband got chicken fingers and loved them. I got the tofu dinghy. It was good but on the sweet side. Everything was amazing. We had so many leftovers you could probably feed a family of 10 with!

First time here. Had brunch and it was the best I have ever had. Can't say enough. All six of us were thrilled with our meals.

Went for lunch with two friends. She had the Bleu Swayed ‘Cue hamburger and he had the Veggie Burger. Her burger was fat and juicy and he raved about the slaw that came with his burger. The menu is pretty big and I had trouble deciding, but finally settled on Good Will Fishing, which consisted of three fish tacos. It... More

Portland's touristy waterfront restaurants offer little in the way of vegetarian or vegan cuisine. We were so relieved to find Silly's. Funky decor, great service, lots of yummy food for all tastes.

This place is absolutely brilliant. Innovative, quirky and massive menu, I'm a fussy eater but I was spoiled for choice. Burger was delish but the Mac & cheese with Buffalo tofu stole the show. Great cocktails and beers on draft plus tasty alcoholic shakes. Alice was a complete legend and introduced us to Calcutta cutter, oxtoberfest and allagash black. Brilliant... More

My wife and I did carry out and enjoyed the wide selection of GF items, including some unique menu options. We'd love to try some other items if we are ever in the area again.

Silly's is a neat place to stop by for a bite if you are in the area. Huge menu with a wide variety of things to satisfy everyone. Our table had the "Harvey Danger" fries with cheese, gravy, and bacon and it didn't disappoint! I also ordered the Chicken in a Love Boat and enjoyed that as well. They also... More

the name is silly, but the food is very good and the service was excellent. It is decorated in colorful, quirky, fun way, such as an old bathtub in the courtyard. Relaxing atmosphere and the food was very good and the service was excellent, being very attentive. If in Portland, it would be a good place to stop to relax... More
