A Portland staple! The Porthole has some of the best raw and friend seafood you can find anywhere. I love their drawn butter lobster roll. The lemon aioli and the mayo lobster rolls are also incredible. The oysters on the half shell are massive and delicious. I can easily take down dozens. I love how much outdoor space they have too. The deck is perfect for nice days and there’s also a ton of seating inside.

We love the Porthole! Friendly and attentive service, super fresh food, and good drinks. Each visit has been great and we always love sitting on the (very spacious) patio to watch the sunset.On this visit we ordered the haddock and blueberry cake with ice cream. The haddock was delicious - I always love the thin and crispy breading. As for the blueberry cake - I will never be satisfied with another dessert! My god it was good, we can’t stop thinking about it. Definitely worth the $10.We’ll be back!

For a city on the coast, Portland has a surprising lack of options for actually eating on the water- thank goodness for The Porthole. With its enormous deck, live music, and genuine working waterfront structure, It may just take the crown for best spot on Commercial St. The deck is large enough to support standing space for those drinking, as well as many picnic styled tables out back complete with umbrellas. The food itself isn't the best seafood you'll get in Maine, but thats only because there is a lot of extraordinary seafood in Maine. It's still great. But the size and ambience of the Porthole is how they butter their bread. The Porthole is a on the short list on places to see while in Portland to get a flavor of the city.

Five freaking stars. First meal in this beautiful state, and what a way to start things off. Delicious clam chowder (my favorite soup) and amazing lobster rolls (at least I found it to be because it was my first one ever). The drinks stayed full, everything tasted fantastic, and the smell of the salt in the air all combined to an excellent dining experience. The staff was fast and friendly, and even accommodated my need to sit inside due to a bee allergy (there were quite a few buzzing around outside). If we fly in from the airport in Portland, we’ll make sure to make a ritual of coming back here.

About as fresh of a lobster as you can get and surrounded by live music and a great atmosphere. This would be my go to place if you are only in Portland Maine for a small amount of time. We were not able to make lobster fest but this felt like we were at a lobster festival anyway except the prices were more reasonable here then they are at the actual lobster fest. Great selection of brews and a nice view of the water from the high tops.Make sure to get the lobster roll cold with the house made lemon aoli sauce on it. It's a very light addition that doesn't take away from the lobster.
