Overpriced and stuffy for ok food. Found better food at a better price at a local chowder house. Was made to feel underdressed and not welcome by hostess, waitress more than made up for it.

It was an amazingly delicious lunch and incredible atmosphere. It was great to have dinner on an old ferry boat. It was find your own seating for lunch and it was very crowded and service was a bit slow. Really enjoyed it though

My husband and I were in Portland for an evening since we were flying out through the Portland airport. Found Dimillos on trip advisor and decided to try it out. It's a floating restaurant right off the pier. We went in between lunch and dinner...More

Neat way to experience dinner in Portland. Seafood alfredo was nothing special, but I'm glad we experienced the restaurant on a boat.

This Portland landmark continues to provide excellent service and menu selections. Careful attention is being given to the preparation of the fish items and the taste, therefore, is superior to most restaurants. This is always a great place to take visitors.

We got sucked into the appeal of free parking and the novelty of eating on a converted ship. Sure, it's cool inside, but we found the food and service lacking. The fried clams were chewy and on the greasy side; the fried haddock tacos were...More

My mother and I took my husband to DiMillo's today. His first trip, and maybe new fave in Portland. We enjoyed a crock of steamers, the freshest seafood fried to perfection, and a round of delish, crisp, creamy coleslaw. Next time I plan on a...More

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.
