Porthole Restaurant and Pub isn’t just a great dinner spot. In fact, some locals claim it has the best breakfast in the city. This seafood joint can be found on Custom House Wharf, which is right off Commercial Street along the harbor. It has a fun maritime energy to it, and locals and tourists alike fill its casual dining seats.

While their lobster roll dinners and live music on the outdoor deck are awesome and definitely crowd pleasers, their breakfast is serious competition for other local establishments. The reason? The freshness of the ingredients, and the innovative offerings. Ever tried a “Lobster Rockport”? We’re guessing not. Or what about a “Casco Bay Omelet,” made with Maine lobster, crab meat, tomatoes, goat cheese and Hollandaise sauce? Come see for yourself what the buzz is all about.
