To all of those who are skeptical from the 1 star Lobster Roll reviews, let me ease your questions.After talking to the bartender, the chef who is responsible for the "miss" part of "hit-or-miss" is no longer here.We both got the Classic Lobster Roll, and were very impressed. They were flavorful and placed on an incredible brioche bun. I've had cheaper rolls in the past that were just as good, so while I can say it was good, a $16 roll can compare to their $25.The service was pretty good, and they have a good selection of drinks.

Excellent service, great patio and the nor'easter lobster roll is amazing. We went to lunch there the minute we got settled into our hotel. The drink menu is impressive as well and the outdoor band just makes this dining on the water venue a great lunch spot More...

It was much more expensive than I remembered, but, the meal was good. We had to ask for a new table as the "two" they sat us at was up against a wall, and there were plenty of other, better tables, but they moved us happily, so no loss there. It was a bit loud!

My boyfriend and I visited Boone's while staying in Portland and were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was quaint and located on the wharf, it was an easy walk from our downtown hotel. Immediately following our order, our food was delivered. It was truly the fastest service I've ever experienced. I ordered the lobster macaroni and cheese and it was creamy, rich, and topped with fresh lobster. By far one of the best parts of being in Maine! My boyfriend had raw oysters and loved it. We paired it all with a glass of Pinot noir. The waitress was a gem, too! Would highly recommend. More...

Great experience from start to finish. Busy Saturday night, but they accommodated our change to outside seating in minutes. We had the perfect table where we could hear the band next door but weren’t blasted by the speakers. Food was lovely and fresh, and the service was great too! Prices were comparable to other restaurants on the dock, and we had a great view of the water as well. More...

Reservations for 7:45 on Friday nite and arrived 15 mins early. They could seat us inside or there were be a 20-30 minute wait for outside, we opted for outside and were seating in 15 mins, i.e. at our original time. Drink @ the downstairs bar were not great, upstairs with our meal were better! I had the Yellow Tail Tuna and wife had the Swordfish, both cooked as requested and served promptly. Also had the calamari appetizer that was more than enough for two and one of the best we've had. Great meal with music from the bar next door. We will go back on our next visit. More...

Right on the water, you can smell the ocean breeze.  The service was good (Winston from Jamaica) and the food was amazing.  Several of us had the warm lobster roll.  It was the best I've ever had.  The place next to us had live music.  Could have done without that since we were just trying to talk over dinner, but eh.  Don't forget to grab a photo in front of the ferry!

I had originally made the reservation for brunch, which my boyfriend and I are very excited about, as we saw the brunch menu on OpenTable. When we got there, we were told that they didn’t do brunch. I’m not sure what the confusion was between the OpenTable menu in the restaurant but the food was still excellent. We ended up getting the fish tacos. Will definitely be back in the future More...

Top Notch. Awesome all the way around. They had my preference for a first floor inside table noted and available on arrival. Hostesses were friendly and welcoming. Our waitress was delightful. The cocktails were good and strong. I recommend the old fashioned. Appetizers: fried calamari, crab cakes and scallops with bacon. All delicious, scallops for the win!  Entrees: fried shrimp platters and lobsters rolls (they have two kinds). The warm lobster roll with butter was perfection!  Desserts: blueberry pie with ice cream. You're in Maine, just do it. It was amazing!  I will go back again:) More...

So out and about in the Old Port decide let's hit one of our favorite locations to dine. We are met at the door by an elderly gentleman who asks reservation? We do not have one we are turned away! This is a first at all the times we have ever gone to this establishment! We were not the only ones turned away 9 other groups were turned away! There were many tables open on both the upper and lower outside decks! This was very disappointing to know they were turning so many.Went to Boone's this afternoon for lunch. Got right in. Sat outside on the upper deck, gorgeous day for it! Our Waitress Gina ( I think) was phenomenal. She was extremely attentive and very informative! She herself if gluten free and she was able to let us know things on the menu that could be adapted. Food was delicious. I ordered the burger on a Lettuce wrap and I appreciate that the burger was cooked exactly how I asked. More...

First, the food: I loooooved these fries. They were so crispy and delectable. The bun on my fried fish sandwich was melt-in-your-mouth buttery flaky goodness, and the rest of the sandwich was worthy of its presence... a great  big piece of crispy fried fish, a strongly flavored yet light tartar sauce, and fresh veggies. The pickle disappointed not because it wasn't good but because it really wasn't what I was expecting... it tasted just like a cucumber that had been dunked in vinegar for maybe 2 seconds. Oddly refreshing, yet not what I was hoping for. I wanted a pickle!!The ambiance here was delightful, being right on the water. We sat on the upper deck at the bar so we had water views, but if we'd been inside or down low on the deck it probably would've been an average experience. There was live music over at the Porthole (a happy coincidence) that made it all the more enjoyable. Unfortunately the service did not do justice to our meal. Our waiter was clearly running around all over the place, but he didn't stop by during our meal and left our water glasses empty the whole time. When we got the check we noticed that he double charged us for drinks, which he was very apologetic about, but nonetheless it tainted our experience a bit. More...

Honestly not impressed with the service. The bartenders were not very friendly and we felt as though we were inconveniencing them. Happy hour oysters were NOT 75 cents as advertised (instead $1.50), but still pretty tasty. What I really loved was the drink. Casco bay cooler was refreshing but strong enough to have me feelin warm and fuzzy after a glass. As a place close to the port, it offers the closeness of the water and a nice outdoor seating option, even an outdoor bar! More...

My husband and I were on vacation and spent one night in Portland, ME. We both knew that we wanted lobster for dinner and we researched the local restaurant scene. Boone’s looked like it could deliver for us (food, location, ambiance) and we were not disappointed. In fact, it was one of the meal highlights of our week-long vacation. We ordered the two featured lobster dishes and they were delicious. The restaurant’s location was right on the water front and we enjoyed a wonderful evening, even when a quick storm came through Hillary, the manager, had to move us and she was super-gracious. She made us feel like it was her personal duty to make sure we had a great meal and great experience. Our waiter, Tim, was very professional and super pleasant. If we have the good fortune of returning to Portland, we’ll definitely eat at Boone’s. More...

Expensive but good food. Welcoming to both our girls and our dogs! We did the classic baked stuffed lobster and it was great (rich) ... I tried two of three oyster varieties and all were great but The server that delivered wasn’t able to say which was which ... at $3.50 a pop that was disappointing. There was a drink and an order of fries that also never came but that ended up being a blessing since we over ordered. It’s worth a visit esp if you have your pups. More...

I've been to Boone's a few times over the years but first time on the deck in the "VIP Table".  (Note: not because I'm VIP material I just timed the turn right).Table looks over the Porthole outdoor deck which was rockin on a summer Saturday afternoon.  We had a couple of fresh seafood platters, crab cakes & Lobster roll.  But really it's all about the deck.  While Boone's is tucked down the the wharf it's still a great location for a summer afternoon in Portland.  A tip: boones offers on site parking.  Not a ton of spaces but they turn fairly frequently.  Being locals we didn't even try .  Give it a shot as we saw cars pull in through the afternoon.  We had a great time.

Muy rica langosta y con opciones Gluten FreeNos sentaron en una parte más apartada con otras mesas, pero nos encantó porque al haber luz de velas era más romántico. El camarero fue lo mejor, de esforzó mucho con nosotros cuando le dijimos que soy Celiaca. Comprobó que todo lo que me traía era realmente sin gluten y sin contaminación cruzada. La langosta me la trajeron sin pan y con ensalada, ¡¡riquísima!! Y de postre dos bolas de sorbete de limón buenísimo! De beber pedí vino Pinot Noir, buenísimo!

Warm, casual, rustic vibe. Great contemporary music in varied genres: hip hop, pop, etc. Prices were a little steep for quality. Food was good, but not noteworthy. Service was great - not overbearing, not absent. Great location. Would love to go back in warmer weather to sit outside. Would recommend for groups, families and dates - all around decent place!

Boone's was pretty good. The service was wonderful. It was an early Friday evening , 7 pm reservation. We were seated upstairs. They do have an outside area as well. Lots of great menu selections but we thought it was a little pricey for the $$ rating. They have an extensive wine, beer and cocktail menu too. We tried the Tuna tartar...we were expecting sliced tuna pieces but it was tasty. We tried the Seafood Newburg and Coquille St. Jacques. Both were delicious with no room for dessert. More...

Our best restaurant experience from start to finish on our vacation to Portland! We stopped in mid-day just to check out the menu, and were greeted by the manager, who was just as lovely and welcoming as she could be. The restaurant smelled amazing and we loved the atmosphere! We told her we would definitely be back for dinner. When we came back, she was still up front, welcoming us as warmly as she did before and told the wait staff to put us at a table near the fireplace (it was chilly outside).  After we were seated, we had excellent service from our server and the most delicious food! The Baked Stuffed Haddock (with lobster and scallop stuffing) was out of this world! The farm cauliflower was the vegetable of the night and it was also fabulous! We were still raving about the restaurant on our flight home. When we come back to Portland again, we fully intend to enjoy this fine restaurant again! Thank you, Michelle and Hillary for a most enjoyable evening, and thank you to the chefs who prepared our glorious meal!!If you're looking for a classy, yet relaxing atmosphere with scrumptious food and a staff who makes you so comfortable, I would highly recommend Boone's Fish House and Oyster Room!

I have had poor service in the past at Boone's Fish House and have been reluctant to go back.  A bartender failed to notify my party that the kitchen was closing a half hour from when we got there and we had to go to another restaurant which set our whole evening back. My siblings chose Boone's for our Mother's Day meal this year and we were so lucky to have been sat in Jerry's section. Jerry was knowledgeable about the food, attentive and was the most entertaining server I have ever had. We all gave this man a hug on our way out, all five of us! Food was great and the service was even better! 5 stars for Jerry! More...

We went to Boone's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I selected the restaurant due to its proximity to our hotel and positive ratings. It was a cool, wet night and we were grateful to be placed at a nice table near the blazing fire. The server was very cordial and attentive. My salmon with grits and broccolini was perfectly prepared and well seasoned. My husband chose the baked stuffed lobster which is a house specialty. He was actually a bit disappointed that the lobster was slightly over cooked. The stuffing was good, with a nice amount of seafood mixed in. The price was a bit higher than expected given lobster comes from the waters outside the door and it is served with no sides or garnish. Our popovers, which must be purchased, were disappointing since they were either overbaked or stale, although the blueberry compote served with them was delicious. Desserts of a Maine blueberry cobbler and a brownie sundae were both hits. The waterfront locale must be delightful in summer when the decks are open. Unfortunately it is still a bit too cool for al fresco dining, but fireside dining was lovely. More...

I am hoping it was a Sunday night and the crew on was tired from the weekend. We love Boone’s and can’t wait to swing by for a drink, lunch or dinner when we travel from Massachusetts. The counter seating really was the managers workspace, with papers, napkins and dinnerware taking up the majority of the space. When seated, no real greeting, the manager just said someone would be over. The bartender was pulling double duty and was new th the restaraunt and area. Couldn’t tell what beers were local and if any spirits were local as well. Eventually moved to the bar, as it seemed we were encroaching on the manager. Food came out, my wife had tuna which was cooked perfect. My cioppino came out Luke warm, the sauce resembling tomato soup. Haddock has good flavor but the dish lacked heat and substance.Staff could have been friendlier. Portland is a foodie destination and competition is fierce. Boone’s needs to step it up to keep return customers coming back.I will try Boone’s again, as this is the first time we have been disappointed. More...

Food, drinks and atmosphere were great! Service was pretty terrible, but we had heard that from locals and went in expecting it. Took our server 20 min to acknowledge us, then took another 40 minutes for our appetizer to arrive (which was a whole 3 scallops). Food took another 20-30 min after that, and we had to ask for bread at least 3 times which arrived at the same time as dinner. But the food was delicious! More...

Came here Friday night with my fiancee with the hopes of using the giftcard that we had. She got various posters which she was very pleased about.  I don't eat seafood so I ordered the filet mignon, comes with dill and horseradish mashed potatoes, asparagus and carrots, but I was ablento substitute the asparagus and carrots for their brussel sprouts. I got my steak medium well. The presentation was excellent and my steak although more bloody than I'm used to, it was the best steak I'd ever had, that it brought tears to my eyes.  A steak to cry for is what I would call it.  The potatoes were excellent and the brussel sprouts are fried in fish oil, so delicious.  We got cocktails which were rather expensive but delicious and a homemade blueberry pie, which was good, but would have been better warmed up. Our waitress was very attentive and lovely, which added to the experience.  We unfortunately couldn't use the giftcard because they are no longer associated with The Rooms, which was why we went there in the first place was to use the thing, so I was disappointed in that aspect, but the food made up for it.

Apps to entree was a little slow and my duck had cooled considerably. Background noise was a bit much at 1st but slowed as the evening progressed. Other than that, all had a very memorable evening and we will definitely return More...

I would recommend the Dine Like a Local deal for dinner. It is basically $30 prix fixe. It offers a variety of options and the menu changes to what's available. The pan roasted stuffed half lobster was good and portions were sufficient. You did not leave too hungry nor too full. Service was great and the restaurant was very accommodating with us changing the time and number of guests. More...

The server was nice, but was not as attentive as I would have liked. I had a colleague who requested a drink multiple times and he failed to bring it. I and others drank water and our glasses were not filled up timely. Overall an okay experience. More...

Outstanding in every way. From the time we were seated until the time we left, we were very well taken care of. It was obvious that the host, servers, etc. wanted to please us in every way. And they did! We look forward to returning. More...

Snowy, Monday night and it was close to the hotel so I went back - my last visit over the summer was very disappointing: long wait time, mediocre food, so I was apprehensive. Having come here for over 20 years on and off, and never having a bad experience except last summer, I wasn't ready to write them off. Anybody can have a bad day. So glad I came back!! Field green salad with blackened scallops followed with baked, stuffed haddock- unbelievable!! Best ever and now back on my "must eat here" list! More...

Went to the symphony matinee then popped in for an early supper. The maitre d’ greeted us by name at the door and graciously offered his best table in front of the crackling fireplace. It was cozy and warm and just perfect. He then brought us a candle and made pleasant but unintrusive conversation. He was a pleasant, gracious, old-world gentleman who made me reminisce about dining in a less busy and rushed world. The waiter could’ve learned much from him. Though efficient, he had a hurried and unsophisticated manner that stood out starkly against the maitre d’. The menu was similarly reminiscent of a by-gone era with mostly classic dishes like the seafood newburg over a grilled popover that I had or my wife’s cioppinio. Both however were quite good with ample seafood and served in an appealing way and in a reasonable portion. We ordered salads to start wanting smaller side salads but both got entree size as the only option apparently. They were quite good but mostly wasted. If I had any “major” complaint, it might be the prices which were on the high side though reflected in the quality. My wife did not enjoy her cocktail either though my old-fashion was good. Overall, we felt the meal was the perfect ending to a pleasant day in Portland and look forward to going to Boone’s again this summer. More...

Booked a table for 10 for 6 PM. The table was ready when we arrived. The waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable. I had the baked stuffed lobster. It was amazing. Even though it was 65 dollars, I would have returned and had it again for lunch the next day. It was that good. Also tried all of the oysters that were available, all were great. It was hard to pick a favorite they as Los had as great selection of beer. I was very impressed and will return More...

The owner was so so so nice! They had a special event happening upstairs and because of that had some special gluten free menu items that were amazing. Gluten free Mac and cheese balls, gf date and cheese stuffed mushrooms--all also vegan!--Were amazing. I loved their happy hour items as well. Love the oysters! More...

We were in Portland from out-of-town, and thought that a long-established seafood restaurant would be a good choice, and we were not disappointed. Indeed, we were delighted by our meal. My wife enjoyed a lobster roll, and I had seafood Newburg the likes of which I never before imagined. More...

Excellent Service with attentive care. Group of 6. Reasonably priced with Calamari appetizer & scallops with bacon were a hit & generous portions. Entrees were also generous & were mostly consumed. My Fishermans' platter was a little overcooked but scallops & shrimp sweet & tasty, haddock was fresh tasting with a generous portion of fries though not enough whole belly clams to my liking. I always order the same thing any time I try a seafood restaurant I haven't visited before to judge them. An excellent experience was had by all. More...

Had an awesome happy hour at Boone's a week ago. Wouldn't have even considered them or walked in if it weren't for the sign they put out on the sidewalk that said $0.75 oysters. (I thought it couldn't get better than dollar oysters!) So after the Mailboat Tour, we went to Boone's and had a light and early dinner off of their happy hour menu. We sat at the bar because you have to sit at the bar for happy hour. Shrimp was also $0.75 each. We requested two orders of the mussels, which were $5 each. (All food and drinks were $5 except for the oysters and shrimp.) The mussels were fantastic and we loved the bread they came with. For our second order of the mussels, the bartender brought us extra bread because we had finished the bread so quickly. Also had calamari and a shrimp skewer, which did not stand out as much as the mussels and oysters did. The shrimp skewer was the only thing that was a little expensive because one skewer alone was $5. Still, a great happy hour spot in Portland.
