Are there any (good) German restaurants in Portland?

My husband wants to go out for German while we are staying in Maine - is there a German restaurant near Portland?

    Yes, Richard's is good. We've been going there for years. Love the combination plate of sausage, other meets, suarkraut, potatoes. Dinner rolls are a treat.

      Not sure if you consider a drive of a little over an hour "near Portland", but the restaurant at Morse's in Waldoboro is divine.


      You could always make a day out of it. Morse's for lunch, Primo in Rockland for dinner. Sounds like a perfect day to me....

        Seconded on Morse's. It's a bit of a haul from Portland but it is well worth the drive. My husband and I went for the first time last month and it was EXCELLENT. I had the best reuben I've ever had in Maine. All the pickles you can eat. You'll drool uncontrollably at the meat and cheese case.

          Morse's sounds great! I'm sure it would work for us this trip though. The drive would be even longer since we have a ferry ride to the mainland at beginning and end.
