    Maine is fourth in the list of New England choices??!?!

    Mass, VT, and NH all have plenty of Giants, Jets, and even Bills fans....but in Maine you won't find a one because we use them as corner flags on our plows!

    Regahdless, New Gloucester here. Currently in Oregon at OHSU until returning home next month.

    If you are driving thru the Old Port and see the blue lights behind you,

    my son is probably about to give you a traffic citation.

    Ahhh..the Old Port, been there, done that. 'Bout the closest I'll come to there these days is Rivalries, J's, or Brian Boru's. Personally, I prefer bringin, my own 6-pack of Shipyard Summer Ale into Susan's Fish n Chips and eating as many Deep-fried lobster tails I can shovel down.:D

    You can't go wrong. It's very casual and the deep-fry is exceptionally clean. The best time for the deep-fried lobster tails is on Fridays, because they'll usually sell out by Sunday, but anything on the menu is great and the fact that you can bring in your own alcohol is enticing.

    And can you believe Presque Isle is still here, lol. And probably with less people since the base closed down years ago. But there are lots of Patriot fans!

    My wife and I went to Susan's yesterday. We had a coupon in our

    Portland Dine Around Club book for a fisherman's platter for two. It

    was quite good. Some time my son has a night detail in Portland, we'll

    get together to try the deep-fried lobster tail on a stick.

    I was going to head over to Susan's and try out the fare, but I'm allergic to shellfish. The problem is that they cook all of their fired food in the same oil they use for the shellfish, and the allergy transfers through it.

    I learned that the hard way a few years back at the local Friendly's. They, too, use the same deep fryer for their chicken and fries that they use for the clams and shrimp. Ended up in the emergency room.

    Anyway, it's a real pain having to ask the restraunt if they use seperate deep fryers before going out. :eek:

    Born and raised in Fryeburg, still go back to Maine from time to time. If I'm back in town during the NFL season, I'll be sure to post something.

    Dude,

    Do that. If you're ever in Bath on game day, there's a place on the couch and a beer in your hand at my place.

    The Fisherman's Platter is a great plate! I'll usually do that same plate for takeout on game days with a few Shipyard Pumpkin Head Ales.:eat2:

    When you have time some day, would you please list a few more of

    your favorite eating places in Greater Portland. We moved from

    Massachusetts to Kennebunk in 1976 and have eaten at relatively

    few of the Portland restaurants.

    Jimke,

    I really like Gritty McDuffs. It's a brew pub in the Old Port, with GREAT beer. They also put on a pretty doggone good fish & chips, with real home-made potato chips, and a nice piece of fish. Get a pint of their Blackfly Stout to wash it down with.

    And if you go down Congress Avenue by the Greyhound Bus Station area, there's a Denny's that is really nice. Yeah, I know, it's Denny's. However, this one is all done up like a real '50s diner, with jukebox, booths, stainless steel everywhere, etc. VERY clean and nice wait staff.

    Respects,

    Here's a few I always liked. Note these are mostly in the general Portland area. I moved from Portland to the Hartford area a year ago and miss living in Maine(born and raised). Alot more New York fans, but I still have some die hard Boston sports fans as well.

    - Ricettas (by the mall) and Espos Tratorria (Congress St) are a couple good italian places I always enjoyed.
    - Anthony's Italian Kitchen is a great sandwich shop in the Old Port, used to eat there all the time during work days.
    - Portland Pie Company has a location in the Old Port and in Westbrook, great place if you like a good pie. A number of good specialty pies as well from here.
    -Gritty's (Freeport and the Old Port), Sebago Brewing Company (by the mall and in Gorham), Ri-Ras (Irish bar by the ferry terminal in Ol Port), and The Great Lost Bear (Forest Ave) all serve decent food along with good beers and atmostphere.
    - Margaritas is some decent Mexican, nothing special but good food and fairly good atmosphere. (Funny enough they actually have a Margaritas about ten minutes from Hartford, I always thought they were more of a Maine/NH -chain)
    - Fore Street is a highly rated restaurant, a little more pricey and more of a special occasion thing. From what I've read, reservations is recommended.
    - Becky's Diner in the Ol Port (right down on Commercial) is inexpensive, decent breakfast if you happen to be in the area. Nothing special, but it's always good to know a good breakfast joint if you end up in the Ol Port overnight.

    Just a couple to throw out there, assuming these haven't gone out of business or moved in the last year. (And yes, I registered and made my first post on a Maine thread.)

    I'd definitely recommend Portland Pie Co. IMO Ricettas is overrated, it's a ripoff from Bertuccis and just as expensive. If you like Greek, try the Falmouth House of Pizza on route 1. It's family-owned and run by a great Greek family. Anyways, if you like BBQ, try Norm's on the East End or Buck's Naked BBQ if you happen to venture to Freeport.

    We had a pizza at Portland Pie Co. this P.M. We thought it was quite good.

    This was the Portland Pie Co. located near Cabelas in Scarborough.
