Dining & Nightlife

Dining & Nightlife in Maine

Maine is home to some of the freshest food in the world, not to mention a thriving craft brewery scene and exciting nightlife. When it comes to food and dining in Maine, we aim to please. And our natural bounty makes it easy to deliver on that promise.

  • We’re serious about food here. Buzzwords like foodie, locovore, and farm-to-table or sea-to-table don’t tell the whole story because for us, those aren’t trends but our way of life. The stories behind the menus make dining in Maine not just a meal but a full-sensory experience.
  • Sharing our bounty with visitors is a serious source of pride. Maine lobstermen like Herman Coombs provide locals and visitors alike with seemingly endless ways to enjoy the iconic Maine lobster. We love nothing more than watching a child crack into his first Maine lobster or surprising and delighting a returning visitor with a new and innovative restaurant.
  • Mainers enjoy their craft, whether in one of Portland’s highly acclaimed restaurants, or one of the 30 craft-breweries throughout the state. Follow the Maine Beer Trail, visit one of Maine’s wineries or distilleries, or just find a corner pub and settle in.
  • The nightlife of Maine is particularly vibrant in the trendy and emerging districts of Portland, but you can find nighttime entertainment or a relaxing and friendly neighborhood pub in nearly all of Maine’s villages and cities. Explore dining and nightlife options on our interactive map, or discover them on your own once you’re here.
