Dimillo's Floating Restraurant - Portland, Maine


While in Maine we did get to sneak away for one great meal... Dimillo's Floating Restaurant in downtown Portland.



The restaurant is actually a converted car ferry that originally ran between New Castle, Delaware, and Pennsville, New Jersey. Later it ran between Newport and Jamestown, Rhode Island. In 1980, it was sold to the Dimillo family and converted into a floating restaurant, one of the largest in America. The restaurant rises and falls with the tide twice a day, and because it's surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views from our dining rooms, function rooms, and outside decks.



This was a spinach salad ordered by Bud's wife. She thought it was very tasty and even shared a few bites with her husband!
This was my Lobster Stew! I loved it! I am going try to make it myself! Very good, best thing about my trip to Maine!

Your standard Clam Chowder, ordered by Mark. Very good - reported.

My Crab Cakes! Best ever... no filler! Perfect! :) Graham's meal. A tidy Lobster,, with clams and vegetables.
Photo #2 of what Mark ordered... he ate it all!

Marta's Lazy Lobster, which was basically pulled Lobster meat and crab on top.
Bud and his Lobster!
I didn't really get a chance to give you the full run down of each meal because it was such a fun group! We talked and talked and I didn't get to study the menu as I usually do... But all in all, Dimillo's gets two thumbs up! Very fancy, very good food! One in a lifetime opportunity!

Ha - I just noticed this post on your blog. I ate their once myself. My friend and I went on a Saturday night and there was a two hour wait, so we had several drinks at the bar along the port side of the boat, then were rewarded with a table in the very front of the boat. I had the twin lobster dinner. It was one of the best meals of my life.
