Concierge.com's insider take:
A total tourist trapbut who cares? DiMillo's is an old Rhode Island car ferry that is now permanently docked in Portland Harbor as a seafood and Italian restaurant. Burgundy-and-brass decor and flickering lanterns make for a tony (if boisterous, as birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated here) atmosphere. The seasonal opening of the second-floor outdoor Bow Deck, which juts over the harbor, is a big event around town: It's simply the best view around. The other big draw is the scrumptious lobsterserved steamed, sautéed, stuffed, fried or Fra Diavolo. The Fisherman's Platter is also the perfect storm of fried haddock, scallops, shrimp, clams, and onion rings. Top it off with a couple of drinks at DiMillo's Port Side Lounge, and you can blame your wobbliness on the water.
Lunch and dinner daily.
