new to Portland Me

My son just moved to Portland and I was wondering what restaurants everyone likes or have tried in the area. Also what do you think about the Seagrass Bistro in Yarmouth?

  1. There are quite a few posts on this subject here, so have a look at any of a number of threads. Seagrass is a skip if you're interested in all the wonderful food Portland has to offer.

    1. A good place to start is for a comprehensive list of restaurants by type of food, with links to reviews. If there's a specific cuisine you are interested in, feel free to ask and you will get lots of opinions here, but there are too many great restaurants here (at all price ranges) for us to answer such a general question.

      1. Haven't been to Seagrass but my wife attended a function there and everyone (including a share of foodies) all enjoyed it a great deal. We plan on going sometime soon. As far as what's good in Portland is concerned, the answer is... a lot! From cheap eats to fine dining it will take quite a while to eat through the city. Enjoy!

        1. we vacationed in Portland last summer and took the kids (8 and 10) to Bar Lola. cute and fun with a super charming staff and great food.
