- EHElisabethHBoston / New England •2 reviews4.0Dined 2 days agoLovely setting. Warm and welcoming. I like it when the waitperson checks in right after the first bites are taken. She came to ask how we were doing when we were nearly finished our food. Although my halibut was delicious, the tiny piece was not worth the $42 I paid. It also came with a minimal amount of side.More infoSolo Italiano$$$$• Italian• Portland•4.7

There are very few regions in the U.S. like the state of Maine. The Acadian culture has produced an entirely unique food type, and nothing proves this like the local restaurant scene. With some of the freshest seafood available, Maine has become the great lobster capital of New England and America. Many of the classic locally owned establishments cook a wide selection of shellfish in various concoctions, including crab cakes and gumbos that are heavy on the cream and potatoes, bringing out comfort food at its finest for seafood lovers. Of course, there are still many national chain locations and local steakhouses, but the king of cuisine in this great state is its delectable seafood delights.
