A Portland seafood restaurant continues to get showered with praise.

The popular online marketplace and lifestyle site Worthly recently released an article about the best seafood restaurants in every state. The list is a who's who of some of the most popular restaurants in the country, and Maine's selection is no exception.

The Pine Tree State's representative is the extremely popular Eventide Oyster Company, a restaurant in Portland's Old Port district. The joint, known for fresh oysters, cold and hot seafood preparations, and other local favorites, has been a hot spot for both Mainers and tourists since opening over a decade ago.

The menu items also include plenty of delicious Maine lobster preparations, like brown butter lobster rolls and hearty lobster stew. Both are favorites for many.

Eventide is known for having extremely long wait times, especially in the heart of the summer, when Portland looks more like New York City than a small city. The majority of seating at the small establishment is first come, first serve. There are limited reservations, which are incredibly difficult to get. The bottom line is that most likely, you will be waiting to eat at this joint. But if you love seafood, it will be worth it. Plus, as we all know, a long wait usually means a delicious restaurant, and that is certainly the case at Eventide.

Here is an excerpt from Worthly on why they chose Eventide as Maine's best seafood restaurant.

Immerse yourself in the essence of New England at Eventide, where the oyster bar showcases a rotating menu of local Maine delicacies...Adding a unique twist to the menu, Asian-fusion dishes such as steamed bao buns and tantalizing tuna tartare with nuoc cham provide variety.

That little writeup perfectly explains why Eventide is a great selection for Maine's best seafood restaurant. I'm sure there are plenty of people in this state and beyond who are still trying to get there for the first time.

There is some relief for some, because Eventide has opened a second location right in the heart of Boston on Boylston Street. Perhaps Eventide will also become Massachusetts' best seafood joint as well.

Congrats to Eventide on even more tremendous press. It's not like they need it, but they certainly deserve it.
