Health Inspector Finds 'Serious Rat Infestation' At Porthole

UPDATE: The Portland Press Herald has published the stomach-turning employee tip that led to the investigation and other documents:

The floors every morning when I open are covered in rat shit. The rats even run across the floor of the dining room during the day. One waitress opened a drawer and almost got bit by one.
ORIGINAL POST: The Porthole restaurant and the adjacent Harbour's Edge Banquet Hall and Comedy Club, all under the same ownership, were shut down by the Portland health inspector because of a "serious rat infestation," according to The Portland Press Herald. Other violations were a bar sink and a floor drain that emptied directly into the harbor.
