Eat at DiMillo’s floating restaurant

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
DiMillo's Floating restaurant

You’ll be out to sea (sort of), while you dine at Maine’s most famous floating restaurant. Retired from its sea-faring days, DiMillo’s Restaurant & Lounge began its life in 1941 as a car ferry called “The New York.” The 206-foot ship weighs 701 tons (more after you’ve eaten too much) and has room for more than 600 guests in the three interior and three exterior seating areas. It’s been feeding tourists and locals since 1982. Ahoy!
