We came to Portland for the weekend with my elderly in laws. This was the perfect lunch spot! Plenty of parking, we were seated right away, it was clean, pleasant and a view of the ocean anywhere you sit! The front desk staff were friendly...More

After reading all the reviews and hearing local recommendations, I chose DiMillo's to be THE restaurant to enjoy my only night in Portland. I wish I chose somewhere else. The food was over cooked and far from good tasting. I didn't want to embarrass my...More

We went to DiMillos for the "boat" experience. We had a good meal, nothing fancy, 2.5lb lobster and the lazy lobster, both good meals. We also had a great bottle of wine as well, staff was friendly.

Good service and food. We had lunch that day, but have had dinner many times. Always an excellent experience. Great views of the city and harbor in the evening..

Food was very good. Waitress said there is often a 2 hour wait on weekends in season. Go off season! Onion soup was excellent. Salads with chicken and filet added were large portions and very fresh. Reasonably priced for location and view.

I would give DiMillo's 3 1/2 starts if I could. It was overall pretty disappointing service wise. We came with a group of 5 for dinner and were seated promptly. After that everything went downhill. Though you might be "paying for the view" there wasn't...More

We had lunch here and thought the food was good, but VERY overpriced. (Nothing was out of this world good like the prices implied.) We had lobster rolls and sandwiches. We enjoyed being on the boat and looking out the window at the boats around...More

We ate here for lunch on a whim based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. We had no complaints at all. The lobster macaroni and cheese was unbelievable. Get the smaller portion because its really rich. The lobster rolls and fried clams were decent. The...More

My family (husband and two young teen boys) were visiting from Michigan, and we were looking forward to a lobster dinner on our last night in Portland. After reading tons of reviews, I settled on DiMillo’s. There was no wait (Monday night) which was nice....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.
