i enjoyed everything at eventide oyster co. except the pig ear terrine. food was very fresh. my friends thought the seafood dishes lacked flavors, but i enjoyed as they way they were. i dont like my seafood heavily flavored which can completely overpower their delicate and subtle natural flavor. seafood has to be very fresh itself and minimum seasoning needed to complement its natural flavor.

    • Definitely try Neptune oyster in boston. One of my favorite places in boston. Besides the oysters, get the johnnycake. Mind blowing, please trust me haha. go during lunchtime on weekdays, otherwise expect 1.5 to 2 hours wait. they dont take reservations.

  1. Glad you were able to head north to my country! I don’t care for oysters, but Maine seafood in general ROCKS!. Glad you made it up to Portland, I know if you like good food, you will be back, there are amazing restaurants in that city.

  2. I’m with you on good seafood not needing a lot of added flavor. I think people are not used to the actual taste of seafood.
