The restaurant is attached to the Fireside Inn, but is open to the public as well. We were staying at the Inn and didn't want to get back into the car after a long trip. I'm ashamed to say we weren't expecting much and were...More

Thank you for writing. Your husband had my summer favorite, the lobster turnover! The chef only makes it during the summer, when the lobster meat is tender and fresh. I miss it in the winter. It's just one more reason to look forward to summer...More

Good menu with options for most everyone, and a full bar. Service was very good and fast. The view of Penobscot Bay is stunning. They serve dinner year 'round, and I will be going backMore

Thank you for your review. your comment, "They serve dinner year 'round, and I will be going back" makes me want to caution that Chef Hightower's lobster menu disappears in the fall. So, if you like those options, return soon. That said, the Chef always...More

Sounds like a lobster extravaganza. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. The Chef does lobster six ways, but only during the season. She likes to keep it fresh. I'll pass your compliments on to the service staff as well as the culinary staff....More

Good choice for restaurant with a view. We ate there twice, once inside and once on the patio. Interesting menu. Try the lobster turnover! Chef even made up a dish that had been discontinued. Service was exceptional! Prices were competitive with other similar restaurants in...More

The waitstaff was wonderful and very helpful with food recommendations. The view was A+ and the food was good enough that the prices didn't hurt :)
