Opening 2020!

We are located across the street from Portland, Maine's Casco Bay in the growing Waterfront neighborhood, steps away from Ocean Gateway Pier. We are on the first floor of the WEX building. 


Helm Oyster Bar & Bistro is an ode to the coast and farmland offering an intimate dining room, bar, and seasonal outdoor patio along Portland's historic waterfront. Our raw bar offers a selection of shellfish and seafood such as oysters, clams, and crudo. Expect a full menu that changes frequently to reflect seasonal and locally-sourced availability. Our bar focuses on natural wines, rotating New England beers, and classic cocktails.

Private Dining

Helm Oyster Bar & Bistro offers a private dining room for small groups.

The private dining room is available for intimate events like birthday parties, anniversaries, or a business lunch. The room can seat up to eight guests during the time of restricted capacity. We hope to be allowed to accommodate larger parties in the near future.
