The atmosphere,food and service was excellent. The waiter was friendly and made excellent recommendations for dinner. A bit pricy but worth it while on vacation

Fried seafood on the menu and why is the place famous for Crawfish? They had Jambalaya on the menu and after living in New Orleans for 12 years, I was eager to try Jakes version. I asked the waitress if I should try it and she asked me why I was asking that. So I explained that I had lived... More

It was a sunny afternoon in Portland. We sat outside and is was great. The drinks were nice the wait staff was friendly and efficient. Fun way to take a break from the massive amount of sightseeing we are doing. Nice rest stop with a drink!

Second visit back to a great restaurant with lovely ambiance and delicious food. The escargot was terrific and dipping the bread in the garlicky sauce was the best part. Great choice of fish! Look forward to visiting again the next time we visit. Think it will become a regular!

Always fresh seafood, great service, nice ambiance. Their razor clams and snow clams are probably Portland's best.

I'm surprised I haven't written a review before since I have been there for lunch on numerous occasions. They have wonderful blue plate specials and a great selection of salads, entrees and a large variety of seafood options. The food, service and drinks are always excellent. It can be a bit noisy in the main dining area, but it is... More

My wife and I were expecting a bit more from the highly rated seafood restaurant. We shared a salad and each ordered an entree. I also had a beer. Our tab was $100 a bit expensive for the quality of food we ate.Service was what was expected. The environment was rather stale.

I am not sure if I must try this out when I am in Portland. The seafood here is ok, not like super good. Food is not very impressive. But it has a long list of cocktail. Service is good. It's good for a big group of gathering I believe. And definitely need to make a reservation!
