    We left after appetizers. Their soup was almost inedible, the shrimp cocktail tasted like it was previously frozen and they could not do grilled calamari. They did it sauté the calamari and it was still bad. About even with Red Lobster - maybe worse.

    The service was friendly and accept for an additional Ketchup request that was forgotten, was prompt with regular check backs. We were there to enjoy the fish n chips special. I enjoyed the flavor of the fish, but I felt it was somewhat overcooked. It lacked solidness in the texture, or was slightly on the soft side. I am guessing that this may have been due to the fact that it was on special, so it's popularity likely led to lower quality control. However, it was not so poor that I would not return for the same dish, as the special made it very reasonably priced. All in all I enjoyed the meal, the food and the service, as well as the layout of the restaurant

    I looked up PSC on Tripadvisor and Yelp and the reviews gave a favorable impression. As such my family and I decided to try it and it did not disappoint. The food for my family's tastes was excellent, every dish was well enjoyed. Prices are fair for fresh seafood on the West Coast. I'd definitely come back.

    Nothing special here - typical seafood restaurant. More adult atmosphere than Red Lobster and the like. They're trying to be fancy with the menu, but it's pretty standard for a slightly expensive seafood restaurant. I was disappointed by the limited menu selection. Overall, a more adult Red Lobster. If you're looking for something truly exceptional, drive downtown and go to The Ringside Fish House.

    Service was very good and I would have given them five stars if my wine been served in a dirty glass. My two guests and I agreed, the food was as dull as the decor. The exception was the coleslaw, best I've ever tasted but not enough to encourage me to return.

    All food at Portland Seafood is delicately flavored and expertly prepared. Fish is perfectly cooked, neither under nor over. You never have to worry about a fish being rubbery, overdone. Non-seafood entrees are perfect. Steaks cooked medium-rare are really medium-rare, not "eh, sorta pink, close enough". In the blue cheese and pear salad, the lettuce, dressing, cheese, pears, and nuts were all A+ fresh and perfect. The other thing that really sets them apart are the vegetables. Wow. Cooked string beans that still have flavor and snap to them! Service: They check on you often. The host checks up that the waiters have been attending to you. Waiters are smart, pleasant, know the dishes. Prices are fair for this level of quality.

    Made a reservation for a friend and her mother. After reading all the reviews and looking at the menu, I thought this was the perfect spot for their last dinner in Portland before returning home to Milwaukee. I was messaged by my friend during their wait that it had been 45min waiting just for their appetizer. After finally receiving it she said the calamari was delicious but the service was poor. I was really bummed hearing this as I was expecting so much more from the eatery that has received such good markings.

    Had a guest from Seattle so came here for dinner; food was excellent, got rave reviews from our guest. The garlic greenbeans were perfect--not too crisp, not limp, just right. The baby potatoes side were wonderful. Our entrees were perfectly cooked (razor clams, Oregon sole, Alaskan stuffed salmon), tasty, appealing to look at. Very nice waitperson and staff. Thanks.

    My kid and wife took me to the Portland Seafood Co. for fathers day,and it was fantastic. I feel like the price of our dinner was well worth it, the food was spectacular,and the service was top-notch! Highly recommended! The crab boil I had was an amazing food experience. Also worth noting-my wife is not the biggest seafood fan, and there were plenty of options for her, and my eight year old loved the fish and chips

    Had Fathers Day lunch here and it was great. Ordered fish and chips and ended up taking half of it home because the portions were so large. This is one of the reasons I come back over and over. I think of this as my "special place" where I can go, eat as much as I want and be pampered by the servers. Joey is very attentive and helpful. You really get your money's worth here, especially if you make it for happy hour in the afternoon!

    Service was barely adequate. Drop your food and go. We would have appreciated being checked on since a few basics like missing forks, another glass of wine and this isn't what I ordered were going on. Food was good. Prices were very reasonable. But would it kill you to hire a couple more servers?

    Our server, Rebecca (I believe), was excellent - we had a group of 8 very jovial and sometimes noisy folks reuniting from several locales. She was friendly, cheerful, accommodating, prompt, and memorable. The food was very good. I would suggest you change the menu more often, including the wine list by the glass. We were happy you had a special Father's Day menu, and the dads were very excited to receive a Dad gift card -- thank you!

    I was very disappointed that our waiter, Joey 39230, apparently did not sync my "Eat, Drink, and Earn" card because I have no record of points gained from the $127.92 total spent. I hope this can still be achieved. I submitted the card with my credit card when paying. The food and service was fabulous--as always! I love bringing out of town visitors to this restaurant, as well as people for my work appointments.

    This was our second time eating at the Mall 205 location. We had gone specifically for the 'fresh' razor clams only to find that the razor clams on the regular menu were the only ones available. They were definitely not fresh - frozen but not tough and well cooked. The green beans were overpower by the lemon on them and in general most offerings at Portland Seafood are over seasoned. Probably won't return as it's quite a drive for us.

    Five of us, from two and a half to 67, enjoyed the selections on the Thursday night menu which includes the three piece Alaskan cod batter dipped fish dinner with coleslaw and fries. We paid under $40 and enjoyed excellent service. Even on very busy Thursday nights Open Table helped us get seated promptly with only a minimal wait as we were early. Thanks Open Table and Portland Seafood Company for another positive dining experience.

    We went for Mother's Day. I specifically checked the "special" menu online prior to making reservations since one person in our party does not like seafood. There was nothing posted for this restaurant regarding any special menu. When we arrived we discovered there was a limited menu, with an extremely overpriced buffet. The buffet had some dishes that were almost empty. Ham was dried out and tough. Chicken was cold. Baked salmon was overcooked and cold. Dessert trays had nothing but crumbs. The orders placed off the limited menu were also disappointing. The portions were small, and people left hungry. We will not be back when all there is to choose from is a brunch, or be recommending this restaurant to others.

    Took mom there for mothers day brunch. I understand that breakfast is not a normal breakfast place but the food served on mothers day was terrible. The eggs tasted like cafateria powdered eggs, the pasta salad was hard and crunchy, the hashbrowns were basically plain square fried tiny potato chuncks with no flavor and the sausage tasted cheap and gross. There was even a hair in the first pan of eggs, they quickly changed the pan after we brought it to their attention but my appetite was already ruined after seeing it.

    What a wonderful experience we had yesterday. We are regular guests and always joke and have fun with the servers. BUT this time we brought some VIP guests with us and our server Janice was professional and did an outstanding job. She even knows we love the zucchini you used to have on the menu and bought some on her own and had them ready when we sat down. Even though it was very busy we never had to ask for anything and our drinks were always full. Just really wanted to let you know how much we appreciate ALL your employees and the great food. That's what keeps us coming back every week.

    We had a really good meal here with impeccable service 9 server called Shane). I would recommend the place to anyone based on that. However, the restaurant has the feel of a very ordinary family restaurant with corridor seating. It needs more life and a bit of style to make it a place for repeated visits.
