Old Port Food Suggestion - Not Fish

My wife and I are about to take our trip in a few weeks up to explore Bar Harbor and Portland. We are going to be spending a Monday night in Portland and I wanted to do something special for our anniversary for dinner. Only problem is that she is pregnant, so a lot of the seafood options are off the table. Does anyone have any good recommendations for somewhere not terribly expensive (budget ~100-125, could stretch, probably no drinks) that would have some good non-seafood items on their menu? She is a relatively picky eater and doesn't really care for steak either, but most other things are ok.

I know this is a very broad question but Tripadvisor has helped me so much in the past, I thought it couldnt hurt to ask.

Thanks everyone! Can't wait to get up there and see some totally different landscape from our native land of Texas!

There are literally dozens of good restaurants in the Old Port and with the exception of Street & Co. (which is exclusively seafood) you will be able to find non-seafood choices just about everywhere. Places that I have been recently that I like include The Grill Room (on Exchange Street) and Sonny's (also on Exchange). The Farmer's Table on Commercial Street is good and has a nice patio for outdoor seating. These are just a few suggestions and places I have been to and enjoyed.

Our favorite is Pepperclub, which I would call eclectic and very vegetarian friendly.

Our favorite is Fore Street, which is very meat-lover friendly. My husband loves the spit-roasted rabbit, when they have it.
