We always visit the Inn on the Blues at least twice during our week stay in Maine. They get everthing about 90% right so I never go in expecting perfection. However, tonight was especially fun with Rob Benton putting on a fun show. Service was especially good (it can be hit or miss) and the food was delicious...minus the calamari... More

Service was great, fresh seafood, and the open air dining was perfect .... Oh and they seated our table of 11 in 5 minutes! I had the clam plate, my daughter the lobster roll, and both were impressed. Also the pretzel app was perfect for the large group. The hummus plate with pita left a little to be desired but... More

We went to the restauarant on a Saturday night specifically to hear what we thought would be a Blues Band. Instead, we watched a bunch of guys playing country music, and an old guy trying to play the harmonica over the whole band. To be fair, they did play 3 Blues songs. At the last minute, one of the band... More

We ran into this place totally by accident, and were glad we did. The rates are in line with anything else in the area. Great GREAT location. The boss Ben was awesome. We wanted to add on another day, and he said no worries, and took care of it for us. The rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floor... More

The room was nice and bright and airy, we had two French doors that opened onto our deck, very nice. I would recommend the Inn on the Blues to a younger crowd. We were told when I made reservations that they have Live Music Friday and Saturday nights. I thought it would be nice to listen to the music. Friday... More

We had a late lunch/early dinner here on a Saturday afternoon. We had a table on the second floor balcony, looking out over both the town of York and the ocean. The food was delicious- I had lobster, my husband planked salmon. Both very good. The service was good, staff friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back again.

HORRIBLE!!!!!!!! Service for food was bad, food itself was worse, and not child friendly at all.... We usually make it a point to eat there at least once per trip and I will never Visit there again. When I complained to the owner manager he was a complete jerk and shrugged us off

Not the best pub fare in town but good. Stick to beer / wine as the drinks seemed quite watered down and expensive. I enjoyed the buffalo chicken flatbread. Wife's salad dressing was yummy. The lobster roll was actually a better deal than most in town!
