Jake's Famous Crawfish, Portland

Step inside Jake's and you'll travel back in time. The front of the menu boasts visits from stars like Ernest Borgnine, and inside it certainly captures that old time Hollywood glamour with bird's eye maple tables, dark wooden booths and frescoes of woodland mountains. The waiters are extremely attentive, decked out in spiffy white jackets, whose personal histories working here are just as fascinating as the restaurant itself.

It's a classic place to go to if you're into seafood (stuffed salmon is the chef's specialty here, with just the right ratio of stuffing to salmon), though there is a rather large bar area, too, if you want a nice cocktail and some appetizers instead (the bacon-wrapped crab and shrimp stuffed prawns are a must!).
