The best, freshest, briniest oysters ever. Go at Happy Hour. Fun place. The service is good although they are very busy, so sometimes a little wait for a new drink. But overall great place.

My son and I went for dinner and it was a most tasty experience. I had a cup of the smoked salmon chowder and it would knock your socks off. I went light as I was still full from an earlier meal. My son went after the broiled cod fish

The service is very friendly and helpful. They will let you wander and view all the beautiful plates and pictures on the walls. Food was served hot, or cold as in the oysters. I am going back very soon.

Great service & great food. Had the Admiral's Platter (big enough for two of us to share) and also shared a large, steaming bowl of fresh clam chowder. I now understand why they say this is the best chowder in Portland! Our server was

We love raw oysters so getting a chance to eat in-season, locally grown/harvested oysters is a real treat. Our party of 3 shared a dozen- 3 of four different kinds and they were absolutely great. It was truly wonderful to be able to sample

This was once a favorite haunt during college. Later we always brought out-of-town friends for lunch after a visit to Saturday Market. Our last few visits were not up to par...the service was incredibly slow and the atmosphere lacked the personal friendliness of days gone by. Hope things have improved.

Dan & Louis' is a landmark seafood restaurant that I first starting going to some 30 years ago. It's kind of a no frills, old fashioned restaurant that serves great seafood. The decor is very homey with lots of wonderful pictures from times past. If you're looking for a very unique experience this is the place for you.

Before we were married my husband took me here. I fell in love with this place. They have a great clam chowder too. But the best is their oysters. Watch them shuck them!

This restaurant has been a family favorite for over 20 years. At Dan & Louie's, as it is known, you will enjoy top-quality seafood and reasonable prices. You'll love the old-fashioned decor. Save room for dessert --you don't want to miss Grandma's pies.
