J's Oyster Bar Portland, Maine: "DISGUSTING" J's Oyster Bar Tip by bkidman

J's Oyster Bar, Portland: 9 reviews and 6 photos

August 26, 2009 first and only visit.

DISGUSTING is the word. The food was O.K. but the bar was DIRTY. When you make the mistake of trying to use the men's room you will NEVER, EVER finish your meal. The overwhelming stench of urine coupled with the sticky floor says it all. Try to wash your hands and you find there is no running hot water. When you mention the condition to the staff they laugh and say "not my job" and "there is nothing I can do about it". They insisted there was no manager on duty and then tried to blame the customers for the filth. If they let an area of the restaurant the public sees get this disgusting, what is going on behind the closed doors of the Kitchen? If you are reading this, do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY!!!

Favorite Dish: The lobster was good until I tried to wash my hands. Could not finish eating after seeing the most disgusting restroom I have ever encountered.
