Darling and I have fallen in love with DiMillo's! The restaurant is actually a converted car ferry that originally ran between New Castle, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Later it ran between Newport and Jamestown, Rhode Island.
In 1965, Tony DiMillo opened "DiMillo's on the Waterfront," just across the street from where it sits now. DiMillo's quickly became one of Portland's most popular restaurants, as people came from all over the country to sample DiMillo's famous lobster dinners.
