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.


Helm Oyster Bar & Bistro is an ode to the coast and farmland offering an airy 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 fish. Expect a full menu that changes frequently to reflect seasonal and locally sourced availability. Our bar focuses on natural wines made with intention, rotating local beers, and classic cocktails.
