Boones Seafood Restaurant
Commercial St, Portland, ME
Another beautiful dinner. Boones advertises their special Stuffed Lobster. I just had to try it. Before I get to the meal, let me tell you that we were dining on the upper deck of the restaurant. Nice calm weather in the bay. The staff was very professional and friendly.
Ok, I ordered my favorite beer, Sea Dog Blueberry beer. Ok, I ordered the stuffed Maine lobster. The stuffing consisted of sea scallops and lobster with a seasoned bread crumb stuffing. They broiled the lobster. My wife had the Seafood Newburg and my darling daughter had the steamed clams.
I ordered the oysters on the half shell and they were plump and briny. The way I like them.
My daughter's steamers came out piping hot. They were huge. She deshelled the steam clams and washed it in the broth and laid it in the drawn butter.
My wife's seafood newburg came in a popover. Various assortment of seafood in a creamy sauce and my Stuffed Maine Lobster had a stuffing made of scallops and lobster in a marinated bread crumb stuffing.
Great day, fine food and great family made for a perfect evening. The lobster was just right, not overcooked and not undercooked. Steamers were hot and seafood newburg was unbelievable.
On a scale of 1-5 and 5 being the best, I give Boones a +100 rating.
