    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.

    It's my favorite pizza joint. I haven't been to the one near Cabela's, but they have 2 other locations that I know of in downtown Westbrook and right intown Portland near the Civic Center and an easy walk to a great pub called Brian Boru's.
