Great food, selection and prices. Loved the pear bleu cheese salad. Servers very accommodating and friendly even though they were going to be closing due to State virus requirements .

Service was good, friendly. Our Fried oysters & razor clams were soggy, gritty & really bland not to mention A 5 oz. wine pour $9.75 really?

Excellent choice for group lunch. Quality seafood and generous lunch options. Pleasant, light-filled, moderate noise level, quiet background music. Kind, thoughtful servers.

The Waitress was very inattentive and rarely checked up on us.
We noticed she was helping some other tables near us more than us for some reason, but moistly ignored our table. She gave my partner a different and more expensive drink than she ordered (and charged for it). She seemed inexperienced and lacked confidence as well which did not help with the experience. I was not expecting the poor service and was disappointed, especially on my Birthday.

Food and service was very good. The party next to us was very loud. Whereas, the food was delicious, price was a little on the high side for what you got.

This is a lovely place to take your family and friends, they are super friendly and attentive and if it's your birthday, they make every effort to make the evening special. The service was charming and friendly as well as attentive. Our food was wonderful and we all had a great time. Thank you!

Our server was very attentive but not overly there. I like my non-alcoholic drinks filled and my used dishes taken away. I don't want to chitchat. That is exactly what she did. She asked if we were doing ok, filled the water and refilled my soda when it was empty.

The food was good. It wasn't omg amazing but the prices were fair and I wasn't paying omg amazing price. I had stuffed steelhead and it was good but felt a little under where the filling was on the fish. We ordered the app sample platter to share and while the spinach dip and calamari were great we kind of kicked ourselves for not just ordering coconut shrimp that was amazing. The fresh veg were brussel sprouts they were definitely fresh and not soggy looked cooked to perfection but because I do not eat them I cannot comment on the flavor. My husband said his were perfect and good though.

In all it was a great casual date night dinner that had amazing service and staff that thought that my lobster cooking story was hilarious.

For a first time visit to Portland Seafood Company I I am in love with this place! I have dreams about the menu item I had. Linguini with salmon (the best I ever had) shrimp, baby clams, artichoke hearts, I really really need this recipe. We had the best waiter, his name was Anthony, he was Very patient to deal with 18 of us, I was very impressed with him! I don’t live in Portland but I plan to go there again!

I'm glad this is a short review. It seems every damn business I get service from over the last five years is bombarding me with review requests and I am sick of them. Review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review review! Get the idea? I view them as just another loss of privacy! It's bad enough that I am sure they know more about me than i do myself!!!
I'll give you this one but don't expect any more. If I get more I will add the site that sends them to my blacklist!

Decent food but there was too much fried food, not as many baked, broiled, or other non fried options as in the past. Less options for seasonal fish than before. Also as bit on salty side for me. Staff is all around great as usual.

Service was disappointing. We were just beginning the salad course when the entree was served. Why the rush? The restaurant was not crowded.

As usual, the food quality and service at Portland Seafood was fabulous. We had a new waiter, Jesse H., who we never had before, and he was outstanding. He kept track of a lot of customizations and special requests at our table for 6, never made one mistake, came back at just the right times to check on us, and served everything with a great attitude. He made the dinner a very pleasant experience.

I knocked my rating down a little this time, because it for one of our entrees (a halibut), the portion size for the fish itself was definitely lacking. We have eaten at this restaurant at least 20 times over the past 4-5 years, so we noticed. We did not complain, so I will never know if it was a mistake or if they have scaled back the portion size to cut costs. But it was disappointing. The fish we got was excellent, but just too small in size. I was not the person eating that particular entree, but I also noticed that I was able to finish MY entire dinner (which was the red snapper fish and chips), including some appetizer and dessert, which is also unusual. I'm not a big guy, and can never finish my whole meal at this place. So I'm really wondering if all the portions have been deftly scaled back a bit.

Otherwise, a wonderful dinner.

Had a wonderful dinner with a friend the other night. We talked for hours in the lounge while eating. The bartender, who waited on us, was very patient and considerate. Very nice of her. Enjoyed the dinner. I had the fillet of sole and we both also had appitisers. Excellent. Thanks Portland Seafood Co. Very nice indeed.

The crab & spinach dip was fantastic but the Parmesan Crusted Halibut was very rare, undercooked and fishy tasting. The razor clams were tough and the breading was soggy. I hope this was an isolated incident

Great for a group lunch. Server was a nice lady doing her best but they are over worked. She had several large group tables and kept forgetting items (refills on beverages, beverages, birthday persons dessert, etc). She was running around trying to do her best but they need more servers. Food was good. Halibut fish n chips was good but coleslaw was delicious! I guess you have to ask for bread now it's not automatically delivered. Patrons should be told that but again everyone's running around and there's not enough time for servers to explain that.

The restaurant was a little dated. I was sat in a banquet that the back was loose, so annoying when the man behind me moved. It felt like being constantly being jostled. Food was good for the price. Everything tasted fresh, but a bit average. My 17 year old was very happy with the food.

Service was really good, very attentive.
It’s just the food was so bland, devoid of any taste.
It wasn’t spicy, salty, sweet, hot, cold - just nothing.
