Description: Our restaurant actually floats, and because it is surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views of Portland Harbor. Our outside decks are great spots to see the sights while enjoying a meal or cocktail. Maine lobster is what we do here and we do it better than anyone.

My husband and I visited here for a belated anniversary dinner. I had the bloody mary and it was delicious. We shared a caesar salad. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the lobster mac and cheese. Everything was amazing and I look forward to going back!

Very delicious dinner meal! The lazy lobster was a great choice — very very delicious! Doused in butter and no fuss over cracking the shells!

If you're looking for thick new england clam chowder, this is the place. We've had others in Portland that were watery and mehh, but based on another reviewers feedback we went here and they weren't kidding. The clam chowder is thick and full of clams and potatoes just like we like it. We also had the bacon-wrapped scallops and bread pudding. The scallops were outstanding! The bread pudding was just okay and the portion size was super small so probably wouldn't order it again. However, would def go back for the chowder and scallops. And went at the last minute with no reservations. And waitress Jess was also outstanding and worth a shout out. We sat on the outdoor side patio which is covered and was really nice and comfortable. We wanted to have dinner, but we were so full after the soup and scallops that we just shared dessert. Even if you don't go for a full dinner, it's def worth a stop for clam chowder.

Great food and great atmosphere. Reasonable price. Clam chowder is very good as is the stuffed lobster. Definitely worth the trip.

We had a lovely dinner here while on vacation with our young adult children. DiMillo’s is a beautiful restaurant on a very large boat on the water! We had a great table with a gorgeous view.

The service was also very good. They were very busy on a Friday night so a little slow to get drinks but it was ok with us as we were in no hurry, just enjoying the company.

The food was good, but for the price could have been better. The Calamari Bruchetta we had as an appetizer was very good. I had the shrimp scampi for dinner and really didn’t love it. It was the heaviest shrimp scampi sauce I’ve ever had. Actually no one at our table had a dinner they loved, but we loved the experience of dining here.
