i may be making another august trip to portland and area for a few days. working in my hotel room by day, going out in the evening. i’ve been up a few times so am familiar with the area, but have questions on places i haven’t been:
five islands: is it worth the trip to georgetown? as in, are the lobsters up there going to be noticably better than ones i can get at portland lobster co? i’m sure the environment up there is great, and i’d enjoy driving the route off of route 1. also, how soon do they run out of food?
fishermen’s shack: i’ve never been and have read they changed owners 2 years ago? are the scallops and lobster roll excellent, and again, what time should i go?
honey paw, isa - recommended dishes?
outliers, liquid riot - are the lobster gnocchi and chicken skin slider dishes worth it?
dutch’s - how does their breakfast chicken biscuit compare to figgy’s in terms of taste? i’m sure it’s much smaller, of course, since one is breakfast and the other (figgy’s) could be two meals.
and other than duckfat, are there any real good sandwich places near the ferries? i may take a sandwich out to one of the islands and don’t know how well a lobster roll would travel out.
as a point of reference, i’ve loved hugo’s, eventide, vinland, but also really liked fore st and five fifty five as well as figgy’s and (long gone) bresca. and know that portland lobster has lots o’ tourists, but it’s nice to eat out on the dock.
thanks for any advice.
