Harding Lee Smith, Chef, Restauranteur
Boone's Fish House & Oyster Room
Welcome to Boone’s Fish House & Oyster Room! Come experience Maine seafood at its finest at the newly renovated, two-story restaurant at 86 Commercial Street on Custom House Wharf, overlooking Portland Harbor. Each story has a deck for outdoor seating so you can watch boats on the harbor while enjoying a beverage at our second story outdoor bar or just see what the tide brings in.
To modernize and restore the historic space we have meticulously renovated the two-story restaurant and function room, capitalizing on the Douglas Fir posts and beams and building tables, booths and doors from stunning cherry. Original beams and woodwork have been refurbished and left exposed for a truly rustic feel.
Owner & Chef Harding Lee Smith and his talented team will prepare the finest local seafood as you sit and enjoy the views of Casco Bay. The menu teems with seafood like steamed Maine lobster over rockweed, fried clams and wood-grilled fish as well as steaks and chops.
Watch lobstermen bring in the daily catch as you enjoy baked stuffed lobster. Little known fact: Baked stuffed lobster may have gotten its start right here at Boone’s! The original owner, Alexander Boone, opened this restaurant in 1898 and decided to take a brave new culinary experiment to the tables of Maine. Since then, baked stuffed lobster has become a staple of New England Coastal Dining.
Upstairs our raw bar will surprise with shucked Maine oysters and wood fired flatbreads while downstairs you can bring the whole family to enjoy seafood by the wood burning fireplace. Come and experience excellent food, service, and atmosphere with a convivial spirit here at Boone’s Fish House & Oyster Room, serving lunch & dinner 7 days a week.
