  • Gonzalo BAbsolutely must do in Portland. The lobster rolls are indescribably delicious

    55555 by Gonzalo B


  • Alexandra W.Truly outstanding. Brown butter lobster roll, oysters, lobster stew, and tomato salad are not to be missed. The wait is worth it.

    55555 by Alexandra W.


  • Chris LLamb ramen dish and lobster dumplings. So good.

    55555 by Chris L


  • j AEverything was delicious. Oysters, Maine lobster stew, best fish sandwich I've ever had, and the brown butter lobster roll?? HOLY SH!T. You may just want to post up and get 5 lobster rolls. Worth it

    55555 by j A


  • Susan MBest oysters of the season although the long wait to get in this ultra popular Portland, ME spot can be daunting. Lots of fun.

    55555 by Susan M


  • Savannah ZPut your name down early and walk around for an hour. Don't miss the lobster bun or the lobster bisque.

    33333 by Savannah Z


  • Matt D.The brown butter lobster roll is to die for. Don't delay, get one.

    55555 by Matt D.


  • Ryan CUnique and interesting specials, but awesome oysters. Beautiful atmosphere

    55555 by Ryan C


  • Sabrina M.Brown butter lobster roll, the scotch egg and lobster stew with green curry were highlights. Also obvi oysters. Pair with a vinho verde!

    55555 by Sabrina M.


  • Steve JThis place was amazing. We showed up early for lunch around 11:30. Ordered roasted scallop, spicy tuna tartare (special), the brown butter lobster roll of course and the fried oysters. 10/10

    55555 by Steve J


  • ZenFoodster EatsIf ur salt-sensitive, place is NOT for U! Fry bread & Uni Butter, Lobster Toast, Pork & Crab Mee Goreng & Wonton Noodle Soup all inedibly salty, overpriced & none captured flavors of SE Asian dishes!

    55555 by ZenFoodster Eats


  • Ryan QuigleyI got emotional eating the lobster roll.

    33333 by Ryan Quigley


  • Kristopher C.Rated one of the best restaurants in America for a reason. The New England Clam Bake is what to order if you are visiting and this is your only meal here.

    55555 by Kristopher C.


  • Cole LOysters were out of this world. Beer selection was incredible. Lobster roll was tasty but not the best I have had.

    55555 by Cole L


  • Sean AUdon noodles were amazing.

    55555 by Sean A


  • Jess T.the best, most consistently incredible restaurant in portland. 6 beers on draft that always compliment the food in an unexpected way - there are no bad choices here.

    55555 by Jess T.


  • John S.The New Meadow oysters are so fat! The horseradish ice is a really nice touch. Get here by 11 to eat by 12 on a weekend.

    55555 by John S.


  • Christine ALobster stew & scallop crudo were 👍 The lobster roll was just alright. It was Asian-style on top of a steamed bun & while it was tasty, it didn't live up to its hype. Ice cream sandwich was on point.

    55555 by Christine A


  • Keith MDrinks are decent.

    55555 by Keith M


  • Phil T.The steamed bun lobster roll is unreal 😍

    55555 by Phil T.


  • Phil T.The Vietnamese Masa is delicious 🙏🏻 this is the fried mussel version 😋

    55555 by Phil T.


  • Janice ROverhyped, overpriced. In NYC we're used to $18 lobster rolls, but theirs lacked depth of flavor. Chowder was basic. Scallop crudo mild in flavor at best.

    33333 by Janice R


  • Mullica ZudsiriDelicious oysters and moroccan fish stew.

    55555 by Mullica Zudsiri


  • Wendy L.Everything is good but esp Viet masa crepe

    55555 by Wendy L.


  • Bon Appetit MagazineThe best oysters, IMHO, are those from Maine, and this casual Portland spot showcases the best of the state. An order of two-dozen never feels like enough.

    55555 by Bon Appetit Magazine


  • Lindsay F.The gluten-free lobster bun is insane.

    55555 by Lindsay F.


  • EaterThe oyster bar of everyone’s dreams also sneaks in surprises like dashi chowder and green curry lobster stew.

    55555 by Eater


  • BradMore of a "small plates" place that serves seafood. The much-heralded lobster roll is served in a bao-like bun that is pretty tasty, but seemed a bit fussy and overwrought.

    55555 by Brad


  • Udi AThe vegetarian menu was divine. Amazing place.

    55555 by Udi A


  • Shelley C.The brown butter lobster roll is delicious, but the fish sandwich was a game changer.

    55555 by Shelley C.


  • Earn DJust get the lobster roll! It's the best of its kind.

    55555 by Earn D


  • KateFry bread with uni butter. Do it.

    55555 by Kate


  • Bobby KennedySmall place but the wait moves faster than it sounds. I'm glad we didn't bail because the oysters, soups and crab roll were fantastic.

    55555 by Bobby Kennedy


  • Maggie P.Sometime the crowd is less mid-afternoon. Excellent selection of oysters!

    55555 by Maggie P.


  • CNTraveler“Briny half-shells most likely harvested that morning, note-perfect lobster rolls, a killer wine list, and all sorts of unexpected treats on the daily menu.” - Peter Jon Lindberg

    55555 by CNTraveler


  • Robin CWonderful selection and expertise of oysters, plus great beer, wine, and other food. Love the dashi chowder. Wish the menu changed more often.

    55555 by Robin C


  • Ted TThe best Lobster Roll I've ever had hands down.

    55555 by Ted T


  • Anny BAbsolutely everything, but if under threat, the smokey lamb noodles

    55555 by Anny B


  • PatriciaYes, the brown butter lobster roll is as good as everyone says. Just get it (and a few other things too: it's small).

    55555 by Patricia


  • Benjamin B.Beautiful, well shucked and cold oysters!

    33333 by Benjamin B.


  • Danika L.The wait was a bit too long for food that was just pretty good. Salad too sweet, lobster roll was ok, mussel curry was my favorite and fantastic. Salmon poke also a bit too sweet.

    55555 by Danika L.


  • J R.I would call this a dining experience esp if you are a foodie. Unique approach to the tasting menu essentially you choose categories such as fowl

    55555 by J R.


  • Annie Q.Long wait but definitely worth it! Put your name on the list and head to Novare Res Bier Cafe until your table is ready. Get the lobster roll.

    55555 by Annie Q.


  • Laurea d.Super balanced, refined & flavorful. Got the Southeast Asian flavors down! Lobster laksa wasn't too sweet (like most laksa in the US) & had that shrimp paste funk 😍

    55555 by Laurea d.


  • Laurea d.Lobster roll is not traditional but it's super delicious! Rice flour bun with lobster sautéed in brown butter. Great selection of local oysters.

    55555 by Laurea d.


  • Galina DThe lobster roll!

    33333 by Galina D


  • Julian M.Get the Korean fried chicken with skillet coconut cornbread!

    55555 by Julian M.


  • HankThe oysters and imaginative dishes are as good as the hype. The lobster roll had good lobster, but the steamed asian style roll was meh. Very pricey.

    55555 by Hank


  • Laila A.Fantastic beer list.

    55555 by Laila A.


  • Jacy LLobster roll is a must!

    55555 by Jacy L


  • Ken SThe Honey Paw has there own take on Asian meals an the verdict is in...Go try it immediately or whenever you can its Good Eats.

    55555 by Ken S


  • Sam SGreat oysters, lobster roll, and very interesting chowder

    55555 by Sam S


  • William DGet the brown butter lobster roll.

    55555 by William D


  • Anna M.Is the wait 3 hours and you just can't take it? Drown your sorrows in a $7 oyster shooter

    33333 by Anna M.


  • PureWowEventide Oyster Co. boasts Portland’s best lobster roll. The intensely tasty and innovative brown butter lobster rolls are more like sliders, so be wise and order two.

    55555 by PureWow


  • Jeremy F.Incredible. Crudo specials, lobster stew

    55555 by Jeremy F.


  • Jeremy F.One of my favorite restaurants in Portland. Reminds me of Xiao Bao Biscuit in Charleston. Clams, masa crepe, specials

    55555 by Jeremy F.


  • Tim C.Try as many things as you can. the lobstah rolls are crack, but you must also get sides (hint: Brussels sprouts)

    55555 by Tim C.


  • Joanna RBrown butter lobster roll is delicious! Oysters are fresh and tender. Beer tap list is almost exclusively local.

    55555 by Joanna R


  • Russell H.Phenominal food. Lobster and fried oyster rolls were amazing. Different crudo plates with various fish were really tasty. Drinks are top notch. Expect a wait.

    55555 by Russell H.

    55555 by Faris T

  • Brant ABest oysters and brown butter lobster roll!

    55555 by Brant A


  • Dave H.Pretty good seafood. The lobster roll is not much food given the amount you are paying.

    33333 by Dave H.


  • Tim DThe oysters are delicious. I got a half dozen of one of each from Maine. In mid March, the wild dam, pemaquid point, and johns river were the best. Order a glass of bubbly or white wine!

    55555 by Tim D


  • EaterThis always-packed oyster bar, which sits along one of Portland’s most progressive restaurant rows, combines foods from Maine and "from away" in dazzling mash-ups.

    55555 by Eater


  • Mouy T.Well fleet oysters are the biggest- shaved iced is a yummy idea. Lobster roll is a must!

    55555 by Mouy T.


  • anna s.delicious southeast asian cuisine, i wanted to order everything on the menu 3x!

    55555 by anna s.


  • Benjamin SutchEPIC❗️Don't miss the pork belly, oysters and taco 🌮🍨 and coconut ice cream for desert!!! Come super early and expect a super long wait...but it is worth every minute! 😄🇺🇸

    55555 by Benjamin Sutch


  • Shanna L.Awesome place to sit and stay a while - unfortunately with a line out the door you feel guilty about it. Bartender was very knowledgeable about the oysters and made some great recos.

    55555 by Shanna L.


  • Brian W.Best lobster roll I've ever had. And the lobster stew was unique and fantastic. Coconut, green curry, and lobster made for a delicious stew. Highly recommended.

    55555 by Brian W.


  • Joshua TLobster bun is amazing.

    55555 by Joshua T


  • Steph Y.The Kentucky Cyclist is one of my favorite cocktails.

    55555 by Steph Y.


  • Ryan K.My favorite spot in Portland!!!

    55555 by Ryan K.


  • David C.the lobster roll is worth traveling for

    55555 by David C.


  • Anton APortions are very small if they had photos I wouldn't even paid half of price it cost. 20% tip automatically, I think it is impolitely. I don't know why this place has so high rating + entry queue.

    22222 by Anton A


  • Qiyou eGreat lobster roll and crab roll, have to try the broiled jumbo oysters.

    55555 by Qiyou e


  • Hal MackinsFantastic oyster selection -- on the day we went, they had nine separate varieties from Maine, plus my beloved Wellfleets! All fresh and delicious.

    55555 by Hal Mackins


  • Ken StewartBrown butter lobster roll and oysters! The best on the East coast

    55555 by Ken Stewart


  • Albert C.Really fantastic brown butter lobster roll

    55555 by Albert C.


  • Kyle B.Amazing seafood! Eventide's take on the traditional lobster roll is superb - would it be obnoxious to say I wish I ordered 2 for myself? Also share biscuits and fresh Maine oysters on the half shell.

    55555 by Kyle B.


  • Pam EBrown Butter Lobster rolls!! Smaller than your average roll elsewhere, but tastes incredible!

    55555 by Pam E


  • JonLoved the lobster and oyster rolls. Chowder was also great too, and really well spiced. Grab some biscuits to go on the side!

    55555 by Jon


  • Tyler L.Eventide is an awesome restaurant in Portland that often has a ridiculous wait for good reason. If you get in at 5 or even just before 6, you may be able to get a table in less than 3 hours.

    55555 by Tyler L.


  • Chelsea D.#FabuLIST #DubiDO brown butter lobster roll is a must. The fried oyster bun was also very good but if deciding between the two go for the lobster!

    55555 by Chelsea D.


  • Memo S.Great oysters and beer, but the lobster roll is simply the best.

    55555 by Memo S.


  • Runnin' DonnaLobster rolls! Ice cream sandwich!

    55555 by Runnin' Donna


  • Jonathan GBrown butter lobster rolls are amazing.

    55555 by Jonathan G


  • Jonathan GGreat food, live atmosphere and unique experience with outdoor tables, bar, and a large communal table. Oh, and an old school DJ playing real vinyl. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    55555 by Jonathan G


  • Dan D.Eventide is like if Momofuku Ssam Bar and a top-notch oyster bar had a baby. Great selection of oysters, buns are on point, cocktails are excellent, and the dessert is great too. Must visit.

    55555 by Dan D.


  • Rachel M.As people have already said, lobster roll here is incredible...The portions are small so two of us ordered four lobster rolls. Dashi chowder and frozen banana desserts were very enjoyable. I love here

    55555 by Rachel M.


  • Rory P.In this parking challenged town, nice to know there is a lot for customers across the street. And all the talk about lobster rolls, yep

    33333 by Rory P.

    55555 by Seung-Jin H.


  • T NA must try is their homemade kimchi its to die for ! And of course the oysters are fresh and delicious!

    55555 by T N


  • Joe M.Pleas get the lobster roll and crab roll. If you need an appetizer start with an oyster shooter and the beet salad

    55555 by Joe M.


  • Jennifer SDozen oysters - ask for a Maine sampler

    55555 by Jennifer S


  • Andy S.Wicked interesting flavors and combination. Best bet for an amazing meal, let the waiter choose a combination of eats and drinks.

    55555 by Andy S.


  • Geoffroy B.Yeah yeah the lobster roll is out of this world, but the real standout surprise is the dashi chowder. It's so flavorful, you'll never look at a regular old chowder the same way again.

    55555 by Geoffroy B.


  • Amnon B.We had amazingly good 12 oysters but very disappointing mean small lobster roll when I complained our very charming and overall helpful waitress rolled her eyes.... With understanding

    33333 by Amnon B.


  • Carmen N.Oysters oysters oysters. Get the fried oyster roll and at least 1/2 dozen on the half shell. And a whoopie pie.

    55555 by Carmen N.


  • Chrissy T.Don't leave without getting the lobster roll. Everything here is worth the wait!

    55555 by Chrissy T.


  • Hutch LeeBest Oyster house in Portland. Great place to come for an afternoon snack. Sit back, relax, and eat some oysters.

    55555 by Hutch Lee


  • Jillian NicholsTheir lobster roll changed my life.

    55555 by Jillian Nichols

    55555 by Emma T.


  • Roxanne S.the twisted tea will FUCK YOU UPPPPPPP

    33333 by Roxanne S.

    33333 by Roxanne S.


  • Jon D.Sit outside and enjoy some of the best oysters around. Superb lobster rolls as well

    55555 by Jon D.


  • Dayle D.Oysters are amazing - great selection from Maine and away! Totally worth the wait!

    55555 by Dayle D.


  • Keith WoodEchoing several other reviews, the Brown Butter lobster roll is off the hook! The lobster tail from the raw bar is also a must, don't shy away from the concept or the price, it is definitely worth it!

    55555 by Keith Wood


  • Jesse LThe lobster roll is like nothing you've ever had. Melts in your mouth. Sweet. Buttery. Lobstah.

    55555 by Jesse L


  • Andrew B.Hands down, the best lobster roll you can get. Sadly, they don't have three choices anymore- but their brown butter is a classic!

    55555 by Andrew B.


  • Marissa BAmazing place with fresh oysters, the best lobster roll I've ever had (w/ brown butter), and a really cool design/atmosphere.

    55555 by Marissa B


  • Jason L.Fantastic Maine oysters go down extra easy with a Dirty Dirty Martini. The rest of the menu is creative and delicious as well!

    55555 by Jason L.


  • Maine Foodie ToursPlan on a multi-course meal. Start with the oyster shooters, then choose a few small plates. Finish with a dessert like their in-house made ice cream sandwich. You can thank us later.

    55555 by Maine Foodie Tours


  • todd SAttractive plating, good food, but crazy mark ups and small portions. San Francisco prices in Portland doesn't make sense.

    55555 by todd S


  • Tiina R.Amazing lobster rolls. Get two with browned butter.

    55555 by Tiina R.


  • Ellen KellyI didn't think I liked oysters before I came to Eventide. Try the red wine mignonette sauce!

    55555 by Ellen Kelly


  • Jeremy F.Chef's tasting

    55555 by Jeremy F.


  • Pianpian W.Their oysters are out of this world.

    55555 by Pianpian W.


  • Noah K.I love seafood and having spent most my life in Seattle and more recently Boston I think it's fair to say Eventide is cranking out world class modern seafood cuisine.

    55555 by Noah K.


  • Conrad J.Second time her and an absolute pleasure each time. Menu is continually changing, go with the 5 course you will not be disappointed. You can choose from the sea, field and beef

    55555 by Eater


  • DaawniiNice and fresh selections of oysters. Ask servers about the oysters before you order. :)

    55555 by Daawnii


  • Colby SpikesOysters are obviously a must, but so is the lobster roll with brown butter vinaigrette. So simple, yet perfect! The fried mussels were playful and tasty, and the Main scallops were clean and bright.

    55555 by Colby Spikes


  • Ozgun A.Fantastic lobster roll and oysters. Best I've ever had!

    55555 by Ozgun A.


  • Amanda D.Don't leave without getting the lobster roll with brown butter vinaigrette!

    55555 by Sarah K.


  • Rainy ZhangThis lobster tail is not talked about enough! Raw with nuoc cham marinade..so delicious

    33333 by Rainy Zhang


  • Jessica S.Lobster roll is amazing, but very tiny and non traditional (it's in a steamed bun of sorts). The chickpea fries are great but come 4 to a plate.

    55555 by Jessica S.


  • EpicuriousEventide's oyster "ices" (served on the side to avoid watery oysters) come in off-the-beaten-track yet insanely delicious flavors like horseradish, Tabasco, and pickled red pepper.

    55555 by Epicurious


  • Catherine ChoAmong tbe different selections of oysters, I`d recommend winter point select, dodge cove, and wellfleet(MA). Personally the oyster bun tasted better to me compared to the lobster bun.

    55555 by Catherine Cho


  • Serious EatsSome of the best fresh fish in town.

    55555 by Serious Eats


  • Betty M.They are known for raw oysters and lobster roll on a steamed white bun, however I'm not impressed by the oyster selection and the lobster roll could use a bit more lobster.

    55555 by Betty M.


  • James B.Great oysters, cocktails, and get the lobster roll with brown butter

    55555 by James B.


  • tze c.Opt for the local oysters and the seafood buns! (An Asian take on traditional lobster rolls)

    55555 by tze c.


  • Christi EubanksBest oysters I've ever had. Love the horseradish and onion ice accoutrements. Lobster roll on an Asian sticky bun is a must. Tiki drinks too

    55555 by Christi Eubanks


  • Nikki RodriguezYou need to try the roasted jumbo winter point oysters. It may change your life.

    55555 by Nikki Rodriguez


  • Kathleen L.Totally awesome dining experience my palate is on fire with happiness

    55555 by Kathleen L.


  • Joe ReynoldsOne of the better seafood restraints in town... Little pricey, but worth it.

    55555 by Joe Reynolds


  • erich l.This place is real. As good as all the reviews and crowds allude to it as. Was a little skeptical of the brown butter lobster roll, but it kicks a$$!!

    55555 by erich l.


  • Rich H.Outstanding oyster selection. Small but delicious lobster rolls.

    55555 by Rich H.


  • Rebecca A.My word, this is one of my favorite meals ever. Get the red onion ice with oysters. The Korean BBQ oysters. And every human on earth should get a chance to have this lobster roll.

    55555 by Rebecca A.

    55555 by Michael G.


  • Blake S.It's like a pork bun and a lobster roll had a love child. Get one! So good!

    55555 by Nick T


  • Tamara H.Please please get the lobster roll with brown butter vinaigrette. They steam the buns, so it's like a pork bun and a lobster had a baby. It's on the preemie side, so order biscuits, too.

    55555 by Sarah K


  • Cezary P.Two words: oyster bun. It's out of this world, with the slightly salty fried oyster balanced out by the tangy pickled onions, spicy jalapeños and mayo. Don't share - just get your own.

    55555 by Cezary P.
