Over the years I have traveled throughout the United States. I enjoy visiting the many unique restaurants that feature local specialties, from Kansas City steaks to the delicious seafood at ... Read more
Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, from the gourmet delights of the Montpelier room in our nation's capital to Modesto Lanzone's great Italian cuisine in Ghiradelli Square but my greatest fascination has been with the raw bars at the oyster houses from California to Maine - and Florida to Maine. But alas, Maine, the greatest seafood state, had none! Until now.

If you come to Portland, you must visit J's Oyster bar- lots of local flavor here!! Next to DiMillo's off Commercial Street.. The steamers are usually really good- and a large amount for a reasonable amount.

Great outdoor seating next to the water to eat fresh seafood like oysters and clams.

Authentic harbor side local joint with the freshest oysters and buckets of atmosphere.

Local from Portland

The food is just ok, but for a good slice of old Portland this place is fantastic for a drink and some fried food.

Skip the touristy lobster spots and hang with the locals. Get the lobster roll sandwich (a Maine staple). Trust me, you won’t regret it. Your best bet is to grab a seat outside with a view of the wharf.

Dockside outdoor seating, and lobster rolls with great lobster meat with no added mayo... So excited to find this preparation of the popular local sandwich. The oysters were a great deal per the menu, but we had already had oysters elsewhere for more than double the price and didn't get anymore at J's. Next time start here!
