Commander Samuel Blyth and Lt. William Burrows
"The captain of HMS Boxer, Commander Samuel Blyth, was killed early in the action by a cannonball; had he lived he might have defended his ship more desperately, but it is not probable with more success. It was his fate now to receive like courtesy at the hands of his enemy. His remains, in company with those of the brave Lieutenant William Burrows, were brought to Portland, where they were interred with military honours in Eastern Cemetery. It was a striking and affecting sight, to behold two gallant commanders, who had lately been arrayed in deadly hostility against each other, descending into one quiet grave, there to mingle their dust peacefully together."

Loved the high-end food at reasonable rates in the Speak Easy with good friends. The oysters were a big hit with us! We will be back soon!
Fantastic little cocktail bar
Went for cocktails after dinner and they did not let us down. Solid menu all around, and well balanced cocktails with great flavor. Cool little speakeasy feel in the lower bar. Definitely come back!
Cocktails were great with an excellent selection of clarified cocktails
Didn't eat here so couldn't tell you about the food but our drinks were fabulous and so was the service!
Unique spot with a great selection of cocktails and food. They also sell their premade cocktails to go. All around fantastic spot. (There’s a hidden room if you can find it)…
Very innovative cocktails. The amount of varieties of clarified/Milk Punch based cocktails is amazing!
Lovely atmosphere and great service!
My husband and I tried this bar for the first time last night. What a cool place with just the right mystique to it. We were seated in the way back and downstairs bar - loved the vibe there. I was in the mood for a particular cocktail and though not on the menu, bartender John assured me that he’d take care of creating it for me. Well, I was amazed at how well he captured the flavors and combination of the alcohol I wanted! It was absolutely perfect! I was floored. He is obviously a master bartender who is talented and creative. He was also quite friendly and made us feel welcome. The birthday beer for my husband was especially kind! He also recommended and informed us about the other venues in the area to enhance our Portland experience. We felt special. Gracias, John!Highly recommended bar!! We’ll be back.
Delicious drinks - savory food - beautiful locale.. what else can you ask for??
Came here during a bachelorette and didn’t have to wait for a booth for 7 on a Saturday. The staff were super sweet and accommodating. But really just wanted to shout out the pretzel bites, I mean they were an easy 10/10. Will be thinking of that mustard for a long time
Cool spot, Caleb was awesome!
Drinks were tasty & the snacks were just enough
Blythe & Burrows was a top notch nightcap stop on our fun Tuesday in Portland. The service was fantastic and gave great recommendations. I really liked the whiskey single barrel picks available to try, and the cocktails were inventive. The actual establishment/bar was also huge, with several options for seating. Highly recommend!
Stopped into this bar while passing through Portland on a road trip. This is definitely one of the best cocktail bars I've been to! Friendly staff and great vibes throughout the bar. The Tom Yum Punch is a MUST.
Super friendly bartender & one of the best cocktails I’ve ever tried!
Great vibes, super cool place with amazing bartenders and staff! My husband and I stopped in for a mid-afternoon drink break while on vacation to Portland - and I was 20 weeks pregnant, but had heard that the bartenders here might be willing to accommodate.Our bartender asked what I liked and custom-made me an AMAZING mocktail! My husband even said it was better than his alcoholic drink (which also looked delicious.)Great place to stop in, highly recommend.
Incredible cocktails, great vibe and atmosphere. A must visit spot in Portland.
Really creative and delicious cocktails. Speakeasy in the back was such a cool vibe!
Best pretzels ever!!! And the maple mustard is absolutely delightful.
Really special place, unlike other places I've been to. Very experimental menu, but somehow didn't feel pretentious. I got the clarified Tom Yum Punch to try something new, and it was delicious. My husband had the Ship Captain Crew which was also exceptional. The oysters were incredible as well! Go here - you won't regret it!
This place was something special!Umbelieveble!Such a great atmosphere!Nice menu.Beautiful place!Awesome service!Just love it!
The cocktails are unique, eclectic & right on point
The bar is cool, service and atmosphere is great, but both drinks (lager and cider) we ordered we did not enjoy. The goat cheese was very good but came with burnt crostini. I think the cocktail menu is probably the most interesting part but we didnt try it.
Best cocktails in Portland hands down. Go! You won't be disappointed. Get the Five Minute Frenchie it's delicious
Place has great drinks and I love the atmosphere
I need to go again! The food and drinks were amazing!
Great little place in the Old Port. Go there.
Great little place for cocktails and bitea.
