"Avoid DiMillo's" Portland Tourist Trap Tip by fernijer

Portland Tourist Traps: 5 reviews and 3 photos

You would think that a restaurant on a boat would have fresh seafood, but no!

This is a quaint idea and a business that has been in Portland for generations, but unfortunately the only reason to visit this restaurant is for the novelty of eating on a boat. The food is awful. :(

Unique Suggestions: Don't bother unless you don't care about food or service quality. If you have plenty of time and no taste buds, however, you'll have a nice time sitting on the water.

Fun Alternatives: J's Oyster Bar is right next door. It's a hole-in-the-wall restaurant with kind of a grungy atmosphere, but the view of the water is great and the food is REALLY good. Very fresh seafood and strrrooooooong drinks.

The people-watching here is kind of amusing, too. As you look around you'll see a mix of bums and millionaires who just stepped off of their yacht.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
