Great date night spot. The COVID reduction of capacity made us feel very safe from others. We had the seafood platter, shrimp and grits and clams. Everything was good. Highly recommended!

Amazing staff who takes the time to ensure safety of others. The food is always fresh, I’ve been coming here since 2013 and have been recommending people to eat here since day one. It’s tough they have to shut down for 4 weeks or more due to the new city ordinance so please be kind and tip well in the meantime!

Southpark has consistently great food and service. The space lends itself to safe COVID indoor dining. The clam chowder is the best in the city!

SP Seafood has been a local favorite of ours for a few years now. It's a fantastic restaurant with excellent food and even better ownership. Please consider visiting if you're in the Portland area. The seafood is amazing (the clam chowder is the best I've ever had), but even their burger is delicious. Also, the habanero aioli!

We love this place. Every dish is great. This visit was for our 5th anniversary. Besides eating lunch we decided to take home some take and make options. We got ClaM Chowder and lobster lasagne.

We also liked the online menu system. Very easy to view information on your phone.

We will go back and we recommend it to our friends

This place was amazing!! We came for my girlfriends birthday and they made it a point to let all the staff know to tell her happy birthday as she walked in!

The house wine was very impressive. We got the oysters on half shell and steamed clams. It was all DELICIOUS. Service was fantastic and personal. Great experience. Will be back!

Service was good, food was great, however getting only two types of oysters when we did a dozen and seeing there was other oyster variety/options soured the experience.

We sat inside. The tables were properly separated. The menu was limited, mostly what could come off a stream table, not South Park's usual fare. The food was tasty and the prices reasonable. Service was kind of slow. This, I'm sure, is due to Covid-19.

Wonderful time at our favorite restaurant! They had a special Happy Anniversary card for us when we arrived and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Matt was a great server and we had a fabulous meal and the wine Matt suggested was perfect with our meal. Can’t wait to go back soon!

Our table was nicely set up, the food was delicious! There was a bit of construction nearby but that is to be expected downtown. These are difficult times for restaurants and I think they did a nice job. Will go back for sure!

In this time of COVID 19, it can feel pretty special to just go out for happy hour and something to eat. We chose Southpark Seafood because they had our door seating and their happy hour menu looked great. My husband and I enjoyed a lovely outing with good wine and food, and we felt safe as the servers all wore masks.

Best clam chowder - ever!
Great service from the Birthday Boy on 09/24 (forget his name, cool hairdo!). My wife’s birthday was 09/25, making her special day fantastic.
We tell all our friends about your clam chowder.
We’ll be back!

The server/bartender was very unhappy being there and made ordering very awkward.

The lady at Mcdonalds had more enthusiasm than her.

this is my favorite place for before theatre or ballet. Sadly there are no performances now, but I wanted to revisit, and I was not disappointed. We went on a Sunday, an autumn afternoon, and were seated outside in perfect weather. There was basically no traffic, and we could park across the street. The wine was fine, the tables were spaced, and the food was either the normal fare or I didn't know the difference. It may well still be my favorite place.
