The Grill House Local Tavern - South Portland, ME

New place has opened in the old Beale St BBQ/The SoPo space at 725 Broadway. Troy Mains is chef/owner along with Chris Johnston.

I stopped in for a brief visit last night and had the mussels in a house-made green coconut curry. They were outstanding, the mussels perfectly cooked and a totally delicious and addictive broth. Beer selection was so-so, but they did have Baxter IPA on tap which was tasty.

Really, really hoping this place finds success and the rest of the menu is as successful as that mussel dish.

Open lunch and dinner.

  1. Thanks for this news. Nice to see Troy land on his feet again and I know he will put out a solid product. Interesting to see Chris (and Jen) expanding to SoPo. There was some concern that they had overextended themselves with the growth of their mid-coast "empire" (Montsweag, Osprey, etc).
