DiMillo's is famous for the freshest seafood, choice cuts of beef and Italian fare. Our restaurant is a converted car ferry that originally ran between New Castle, Delaware, and Pennsville, New Jersey. In 1980, it was sold to our family and converted into a floating restaurant, one of the largest in America.

The restaurant rises and falls with the tide twice a day, and because it's surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views from our dining rooms, function rooms, and outside decks.

Our outside decks are great spots to watch the sights and sounds of Portland harbor while enjoying a meal or cocktail. When you're visiting Portland, be sure to stop at DiMillo's on Long Wharf and experience the romance of Maine's waterfront.

In 1965, Tony opened "DiMillo's on the Waterfront," just across the street from where it sits now. DiMillo's quickly became one of Portland's most popular restaurants, as people came from all over the country to sample DiMillo's famous lobster dinners. In 1978, Tony purchased the dilapidated Long Wharf, built "DiMillo's Marina," and quickly filled all 120 slips. 
Today, Tony's wife, sisters and sons continue to maintain the high standards he established over 40 years ago. There is always a DiMillo on board.DiMillo's On the Water, Portland — DiMillo's Floating Restaurant is one of the largest such restaurants in the country, with an overall length of 206 feet, and a beam of 65 feet.
