I have gone here since the 80's, never been disappointed. Love the seafood, steak is very good too. Have recommended to friends and family and they too have been happy.

Always fresh and consistently good seafood. My client and I each had the halibut and couscous special that evening and were both very pleased with our meal. They also offer steak should your guest wish to order beef. The wine list is extensive and offers a wide price range from which to select. The views at sunset are fabulous if you are lucky enough to catch Portland on a sunny day. It can get a little loud when the restaurant is busy so conversations could be a challenge with a larger party.

The food is what you want to focus on. The setting on the river is a nice addition. For a seafood restaurant, I thought they could of had a few more choices, but I had the Halibut which was a featured special. Was not disappointed. Service was excellent as well. I would definitely return when visiting Portland again.

We visited on July 4 evening. We had great weather. I had some kind of 4th of July special of BBQ and fish and sides. Others had fish. The food was well prepared, the service was good and the view was very nice. All in all a very good experience. Not quite 'fine' dining, but definitely a step above casual dining in both food and service. If you plan to sit outside, consider a jacket in the evening as you are right on the river.
