Outside Dining

Outdoor dining in Maine is truly an experience of beauty and taste


Maine restaurants capitalize on the environment in many ways. The Old Port is the historic part of downtown Portland and offers the largest selection of dining options at the water’s edge, and offers inexpensive options to dine while immersed in sea views.

The summer season in Portland is just too short, so take advantage of the best decks and patios downtown. Where else do you go for fresh food and fresh air in the area? Outdoor dining in Maine is truly an experience of beauty and taste.

For generations, DiMillo's On the Water has offered some of the best,signature harbor-side dining in Portland. Patrons sit at metal framed tables and chairs on the deck of the restaurant's iconic ship, watching the mix of pleasure and working craft as they enjoy some of the best seafood in town. Similarly, J's Oyster and Portland Lobster Company offer breathtaking views of Portland Harbor with delicate ocean breezes and the sound of gulls and other sea birds stirring the appetite. For some of the best in Maine coastline dining, locals and visitors alike travel from Portland to The Lobster Shack at Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth. Nothing fancy here - just good, honest sea shack dishes like lobster rolls and fried clams to enjoy. But the menu is made even more special with expansive views of the rocky shore, surf roaring against huge granite boulders.
