Eventide is a small restaurant that doesn't take reservations, but is worth the wait if you're there at a busy time. This restaurant is so tasty that I made a special trip for the lobster roll and oysters traveling back from Florida to Wisconsin. The staff is very friendly, oysters are great and the lobster roll with brown butter vinaigrette...amazing. Oysters are just so good here and I had a ton around the area. After several visits to Portland the past four months, Eventide is one of my favorites. On my last visit, I had a local accompany me who raved about the chowder and roll. The oyster roll should also not be missed. If you are able to go at an off time, it makes the experience that much more personal. One of my faves.

Maine boasts the best oysters in the US and this is the perfect place to get them! The menu is pretty much all oyster based, so don't go there expecting to get anything else. It's a lovely spot to stop for a drink and a plate of raw oysters before continuing on with your sightseeing!
After lobster, oysters in Maine is the thing you should definitely try!

While staying in Portland, my boyfriend and I popped in to try their oysters. They were excellent, especially the tabasco ice. But the real winner for me was the chickpea fries. I've never tried anything like it! Really great service and great beer/wine selection.

Best Lobster roll ever!!! We also had their special Mackerel stew which was delicious. With the right amount of spices. They have some cool drinks which are perfect and refreshing.
