I started going to Pal's when I was a kid back in 1968. My parents knew the original owners Cliff & Marty Hansen. I would get a note from my mom for our order. Even though it was a tavern, I was allowed to stand...More

A friend took me here last month and I raved about the mussels after trying them. Our second visit last week was a little disappointing. Our dinner of a crab louie, large steamer clams, and two beers was $57. The atmosphere is lacking, but the...More

We have been going to Pal Shanty since the 60's and they continue to serve wonderful food! They have tons of seafood items. Our favorite is an open-faced crab sandwich. It is always great and very filling. Their clams are terrific as well as their...More

Loved the Seafood Chowder. The smoked salmon was the best and gave it a wonderful extra taste. I had a cup with the Crab Louie. Both were wonderful. The atmosphere is down home local and that was perfect. If I lived in Portland it would...More
