Eventide Oyster Co

Seafood in Portland

Rocking seafood-lovers' worlds since opening in 2012, Eventide still has plenty of hype, and one look at the raw bar here explains all: fresh Maine oysters and shellfish, shucked to order. There's an enticing menu of small dishes, pescatorially focused but not exclusively so.

The lobster roll, cooked in brown butter and served on a soft bao-style roll, passionately divides crowds into rabid supporters and fierce detractors.
