According to a report from the Press Herald, The Porthole has closed and it’s “unclear” when it will reopen.
[Owner Oliver] Keithly said Tuesday he hopes he can work out a plan to renovate and reopen, but he acknowledged it will be difficult. He said he had been planning on closing the Porthole in December and January to redesign the kitchen – which the Comedy Connection shares — but decided do the work earlier after the health inspection and subsequent press coverage.
“Business has been so slow,” he said. “Why prolong it?”
