Excellent higher end sea food served in a space that is perfect for entertaining. Wonderful large space on one of Portland's piers gives this place a good smart but casual feel - seating not at all cramped and thus suitable for larger groups, especially as prices are not half bad for the quality you get. I'd personally choose their, also excellent, sister restaurant Street & Co for a couple/date meal if done again but still glad we made the visit and got to experience this venue.

Great atmosphere. The staff were kind and responsive, the food was fabulous. It was very busy, so if you don't have a reservation, there is a wait, or you can sit in the bar area. I recommend getting a reservation if you can. I had the brown butter lobster roll. It was worth every penny. It was more rich than a roadside stand roll as it was with brown butter, but I expected that. It was delicious and not too buttery.

Pleasant atmosphere! The waitstaff was pleasant and quite knowledgeable. Chef does an incredible job of using different spices and flavors to tantalize one's taste buds.
