Up North in the Old Port district of Downtown Portland, Maine, there is an amazing contemporary seafood restaurant called Old Port Sea Grill & Raw Bar. With a modern interior lit by natural sunlight from the large windows, Old Port Sea Grill is a favorite of ours. We obviously opted for the local cold water oysters to start, paired with a pinot.
Old Port Sea Grill has the freshest offerings of local shellfish and seafood – we wanted to try everything on the menu.
The staff was approachable, kind and very informed. There is also a huge 250 gallon salt water fish tank right in the middle of the restaurant, where we snapped this picture of Nemo and Dory. This place must be pretty awesome for Pixar celebrity fish to want to spend their retirement there.
