A car ferry from 1941 to 1958, a Youth Center Art Colony in Rhode Island from 1969 to 1977, a Yacht Club in Port Jefferson, New York until 1980 when the vessel was purchased by the Di Millo Family and opened as "DiMillo's Floating Restaurant" in 1982. In 1994 the original rudder was removed when in dry dock at Bath Iron Works to install a new hull.
There was a large glass case with a schooner on display, as well as many photos of other ships.
Mr. Eva selected the broiled scallops, mashed potatoes, and green beans.
We had a delectable, enjoyable meal, and I recommend DiMillo's on the Water to anyone who visits Portland. Their menu includes seafood, steaks, burgers, and Italian fare, and the prices range from $7.50 to for a cheeseburger at lunch time, to $49 for a 2 and 1/2 pound lobster at dinner, with various selections in between. Obviously, this was a little above the average eatery Mr. and Mrs. Eva usually frequent, but the food and the atmosphere are worth the extra. We do try to dine at DiMillo's at least once or twice per year on a special occasion. Never have we been disappointed. Click here to visit their website.
