Enjoyed another meal at DiMillos floating restaurant. We usually sit in the tavern or at the bar.A great spot in summer is out on one of the decks. Food is always delicious. Best mussels around.

Today I enjoyed a fabulous lunch on DiMillo's outside upper deck. The view of Casco Bay was breathtaking. DiMillo's has the best Lobster Club Sandwich in the area. Also, they are known for their clam chowder and numerous other seafood dishes. It's a must visit!

Still runned by the Dimillo's family after original founder passed, and in business since the 80's. This is a boat anchored right on the port and functioning as a full restaurant. The wait for a table was about 1/2 hour as we did not have...More

There are a lot of options for great restaurants in Portland; and DiMillos is certainly one you should check out. I loved the idea of eating on a boat. The wait was long, but we immediately found a great table in the bar. The waiter...More

Getting there is half the fun as we walked down the dock and through the luxurious ship to our tables. We were with a party of 10 from the DR and North Carolina. The menu satisfied all tastes. Lobster Mac is an all time favorite.

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.
