"My wife and I were in Portland recently and were told to try Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant. We went and were not disappointed. The food and services were impeccable. We both shared the house salad, the Halibut stuffed with shrimp, Crab, Cream Cheese and Brie also the Key Lime pie for dessert. All were superb!"

"My wife and I took friends from out of town to the Fish Market for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I requested a shrimp salad which I remembered fondly that used to be on the menu. The chef actually recreated the dish much to both our friends and my pleasure."

"My wife and I had dinner at Jamisons and were disappointed they didn't have the Halibut which I had read about. However we had the flat-breads which were excellent. It was an enjoyable evening dining outside."

"My family and I had dinner at Lindey's and were not disappointed in either food or the service. Our only disappointment was there seems to be little or no communication between the hostess on the outside patio and the hostess in the inside dining room. Otherwise, the food was excellent."

"Albeit the ambiance was bit loud for my taste but the food was excellent. All four members of my family had the prime rib which had been recommended. We were not disappointed. All of our orders were cooked to perfection. I would go back there in a heart beat - especially for the prime rib."
