The pearl of the waterfront and Portland and Maine's premier oyster locale. Good food, good drinks, and good people in a unique waterfront atmosphere!
Do they have some of the best seafood in town? Sure. But the bar is old school. Order a drink and mind your manners with the staff
Nothing fancy here, just straightforward Maine seafood served with sass on Portland’s working waterfront. [Eater 18 Member]
Love this place. When it's real busy the bar is real slow. Have patience.
Free Oysters from 4-6 ( I don't know what days of the week they do this but I was there on a Monday )
Try the Alaskan King Crab Legs with clams and corn!
That is how much lobster meet was in my Lobster Stew CUP!
Man. We have been coming for about 12 years. The lobster stew is delicious and the drinks are notoriously strong. They were famous for the bloody Marys in my circle of friends but they seemed to have
The lobster rolls are my favorite in town. Good chowder too.
You really can't go wrong at this fun, cozy raw bar with a great local energy. It's probably just what you're looking for.
This place is a total fisherman's hangout, one of a kind, and you can't beat twelve oysters for twelve dollars
J's Hat Trick: A lobster roll, a bowl of lobster stew, and a spicy Bloody Mary.
Lobster stew is chunky and divine.
great bar and resteraunt but 3's a crowd travel alone or in pairs if you want a seat at the bar during busy hours. Mary and Sandy are friendly and attentive bartenders. The lobster stew is awesome an
When you find the CEO of a corporation sitting next to the Fisherman who brought in the catch of the day...you know it's good! imo best place to get the best seafood in Portland when you want it fresh
Free oysters in February makes February the best month all year!

Deelicious, fresh oysters! And cheap too!! Grab 2 dozen!
Ate four dozen oysters with my buddies, could have four dozen more. Delicious
Sit outside, watch the boats, eat oysters and other sea treats. The bakers dozen is incredibly generous. >13. PS you can charge a phone outside.
Been coming here as long as I can remember, and have never had a disappointment!
Oysters and raw scallops OMFG...
Lobster roll and oysters! Fresh off the boat!
Delish seafood & outdoor seating with view of the water. This place is a must for visitors.
Good oysters great prices! Small place so be prepared to wait.
Try the Lobster Stew - If I die young....serve this (via @Foodspotting)
Best Lobster Roll!!!!!'
The steamers are the best!!!
Any wait is worth it, staff is friendly and place is mixed with locals and tourists - great specials too. Best lobster roll I've had so far!
My first stop whenever I am in town.

Drink the Pinot Noir rather than the Cabernet... But DO have the Lobster and steamers! Great place! Love it.
There are a lot of good seafood places in Portland. This is one of the BEST!
Lobster stew without a doubt!
Martinis good. Oysters yes. And the locals are incredibly friendly.
This is the real deal. Forget all those tourist traps. J's is open year 'round.
Not really traditional clam chowder. Bland other than that overpowering black pepper
combo cocktail is a must and if they have the cajun scallops roll as a special a must try! oh and did i forget to mention oyster vodka shooters!?
Quiet, intimate outside seating in the late evenings.. all seafood is fresh and delicious
Get the lobster chowder. It was soo good.
Horrendous service. But good eats
13 oysters for 12 bucks.. It's allgood.
A local dive with fresh seafood. Nothing is fried, so don't come here looking for fish & chips. Try the classic lobster roll.
Angry Orchard cider and steamed clams. Delicious!
Local history. Staff is a family and have worked together for years!! A must!!!!
My go-to food and beverage destination in Portland. Found this place when Grateful Dead played the Civic Center May '79. I've boated over from S Harpswell in 17' Whaler just to have a Dozen.
The outdoor views of the waterfront are great, but I found the crab roll to be only so-so. Clams, however, are a must.
Отличное недорогое место в Портленде со свежей морской едой. Lobster stew and shrimps are fantastic!
No siracha :(
