This restaurant is in a converted car ferry with an interesting history. The atmosphere is very nice, the service and friendliness are outstanding. The food is average.

DiMillo's is a Portland institution and enjoys a great location on the water in the Old Port which makes it the go to place for vistors and Mainers alike, especially for drinks or special occasions. The services is great, not rushed, the decor is nice, the views go from ok to nice and the menu selections is seafood and steak ranging in price from $15-$30 per entree. So what is not to like....the food. For the price the food is mundane, unexciting, and on the most recent visit included lobster that was rubbery, mussels so small, I wasn't sure they were in the shell and undercooked pasta. The couple we were with had the seafood broil which is plain and simple was adequate; but nothing special considering price and locale. It appears that the old standby has drifted into being a toursit

During a recent trip to Portland we ate at DiMillo's and had a nice evening. One negative was that the calories are listed on the menu, which kind of takes the fun out of eating on a vacation. The restaurant itself was pretty busy and we had a twenty minute wait. It is a very popular spot for tourists as it is "floating" and a boat. We ordered two salads and they were fine, kind of small and then we ordered the salmon and the stuffed haddock. Both of the entrees where very tasty and I would highly recommend the stuffed haddock if you are looking to indulge a little bit. For dessert we split the bread pudding amongst the three of us along with a coffee and biscotti. The desserts where delicious and satisfying!

DiMillo's is a wonderful restaurant on a ship on the ocean. The food is great . The atmosphere is unique with views of the ocean from all sides and you can eat outside on the deck. Don't leave Portland without visiting this gem :):)

Lobster always good. What makes this place special is the service. They don't rush you and everything is served with attention to detail. Best waitress in Portland is Lisa.
