    Not widely advertised but there is an excellent deal every Thursday with a 3-piece cod fish and fries for 1/2 price! We also enjoyed the complementary warm bread/butter, and ordered the artichoke/crab dip and marion berry pie ala mode to share. The main dining room was a bit too cold for the kids so the staff obliged us by moving our party of 7 to the adjacent sun room which was much warmer and quieter too. Excellent service except we should have ordered the entrees to be served asap instead of waiting until after the appetizer was served. The kids ages 4 and 6 had a hard time waiting for their food to be served even though crayons and a sheet with kid games was provided.

    Good seafood at fairly reasonable prices. Great place for families - seating is roomy and there's always something everyone will enjoy. Our "go-to" family celebration place. "Even better if" the garlic green beans are great but have been getting progressively oilier as have a few other items on list. Luckily you have the option of ordering "plain." Would also love to see smaller dessert options. Desserts are always very good and HUGE.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    After a long day of travel we needed to get dinner. I read the description on Open Table and it sounded like PSC was a quaint and casual seafood restaurant. When we arrived we realized it was more of a fast food chain. We ordered the shrimp and crab cocktail which was reasonably fresh, but totally lacked flavor as it was served with about a half teaspoon of cocktail sauce. The fish and chips were fried and very oily. The best dish we ordered was a turkey sandwich.

    Don't be put off by the location...in the rear of a shopping center. Nothing fancy, but the flavors of the seafood shone here. We rarely have razor clams on menus in California, so it was a special treat to have them.

    I told my husband if we watched one more episode of Deadliest Catch he'd have to take me out for crab! The seafood was delicious! We took our three children, ages 5, 9, & 11. They really enjoyed trying several things on the appetizer sampler and ended up eating most of my crab, shrimp, clams and other dinner items. We will definitely be back for some King Crab!

    We were seated quickly as there were few people in the restaurant. We chose to sit outside on a sunny day. Upon sitting, a bus came and idled nearby, sending exhaust into the air. Our server immediately came and took our drink order, brought our drink order, and then took our food order. He returned with bread and a cup of chowder with crackers already in it (the business assumes I want crackers). After, we waited and I ate my chowder and my family drank soda, lemonade, and water. The cup of chowder was overly buttery and salty. Then we waited, and waited. We all finished our drinks and no one checked on us. I would say we were alone for ten to fifteen minutes. Our overly salty fries and food came as did water via manager.

    It's been better. Service was a little slow. Sometimes that happens. My husbands food was not well done. He got the surfs and turf. Everything looked very well done. New cook? Or rushed cook. My six year old fish was soggy. In a note the floors were slippery. My six year old slipped and fell. I noticed someone else commented on floors too.

My wife ordered a glass of house chardenay wine whitch we were charged 9.50 for.. advised the waiter of the oyster situation and he did bring me another serving , whitch were passable. when I advised him of my thoughts on the wine price he made up some story about the adding machine making a mistlake. overall it made for a rather unpleasant experience and we will not be malking a return visit

  • Sigh...not what we were expecting.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Sigh...not what we were expecting. First we waited in the bar and had cocktails. It took a full 10 min before anyone would take our order. Worst drinks I've ever had - who uses low-brow bourbon to make a Manhattan? God they were terrible. But on to a nice dinner, right? Ordered a couple of glasses of wine - one Cabernet and one Pinot Noir - both good labels. The wine tasted like the bottles had been uncorked for two days. Then the table next to us was waiting for a very long time for their food. Turns out the server gave their food to the table next to them. Meanwhile our food was extremely slow to arrive. When I wanted a different wine with dinner, the server didn't return for at least 20 min. The food was completely mediocre.

    Management needs to a better job of planning ahead. First my crab stuffed salmon (which actually wasn't stuffed, just crab plopped top of salomon) was under cooked. Then while we were waiting forever for our dessert, all I heard from ever waitress around was how overwhelmed the kitchen was. It was Valentine's day, you know it is going to be busy. If the management had done their job, I would be writing a positive review instead of negative one.

    I would visit this restaurant again as we love the food. Would I do it for a special occasion again? No. The reason being it is hard to have a romantic dinner when your dining neighbors are less than 18" from you and no barriers. You can hear everything thing they are saying and vice versa. You can even smell their meals.

    From the friendly welcome to the pleasant end we were very impressed. The only complaint was the small table. I imagine we could have asked for a larger table though. Fried prawns were crunchy, hot, tasty and not too sweet, but I absolutely loved the coleslaw. Best I've ever tasted but upon asking found out the recipe is a family secret. Crab topping on the steak made me wish I could fill my plate with more crab. The potato cakes were very tasty and mildly spicy. The salmon with the surf and turf was moist and flavorful. Steak OK but I preferred the prime rib which was very good. We were too full for dessert but couldn't resist and had creme brûlée which was very good. Spanish coffee to end the meal. We will definitely return again.

    The Portland Seafood Company was a last-minute alternative for a birthday gathering, but it turned out for the best. Since it was located in the mall and relatively uncrowded, I was expecting mediocre food mediocre service at best. Myself and the group I was with were pleasantly surprised when dished after dish that they brought out tasted incredible. Our server, Shane, was pleasant, accommodating, and very attentive ensuring that our every request was answered in a timely manner and was correct. I'm very glad we discovered this little gem. We will definitely be going back there again.

We arrived within 15 minutes of each other and our server was very patient taking drink orders and waiting until we were all there to continue. He very patiently described items to some of our group and took super care of us. I would be glad to have him on another visit. I talked my table into ordering the open face crab melt sandwich and no one was disappointed!
