Eventide Oyster Co.
Bustling spot for seafood & drinks
Oyster Bar · $$$
Famed for its lobster roll on an Asian-style steamed bun, this small, spirited Old Port seafood destination also offers crudos, ceviche and sophisticated twists on New England classics, plus a raw bar with local oysters. It's ultra-popular and doesn't take reservations, but house cocktails, beer and wine help ease the wait for a spot at the bar, communal tables or teeny sidewalk perches.

If you only have one night in Portland this is the place to eat. If you like raw oysters, they were so clean and fresh at Eventide. The special ices we're unique and complimented the oysters perfectly. I've had quite a few lobster rolls in Portland and this was better than the rest for sure. First it's a buttered lobster which I just love. Second, the bun is steamed like you find in Asian dishes but still thicker and split top like a traditional lobster roll. I have to stop myself from ordering another every time. I've had some other dishes too and they have all been just as amazing. Everything is fresh and has a fun twist without being crazy or overpowering. Just subtle flavors that compliment each other in a way that makes you wonder why everyone doesn't do it this way. Do yourself a favor and go. The service is great and so is the food.

Had an amazing experience here. The waitresses were super warm and friendly. The oysters were amazing. I also had the clam chowder and of course the lobster roll. Everything is quite small but jam packed with flavor. And their cocktails are also amazing

We heard so many things great about this place and it lived up to it's promise. We started off with the Basket Island + Winter Point raw oysters. Yum. Then we had the lobster stew, even better but let me tell you the brown butter lobster roll was a grand slam home run. For kicks we split the whoopee pie for dessert. Everything was to our liking and the service as A1. Next time in Maine we want to go back.
