Can't say much about the food, had personal pizzas one night staying in the hotel. Pizza was good, and was called when it was ready so not any time waiting around for the food.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your take-out pizza while you were staying at the hotel. Just call in your order, and we will call your room when it is ready. Many people do take-out, especially when there is a game on. Thank you again for writing. Sincerely, Barry Asalone General Manager More

The most recent time we ate at The Ocean's Edge was during a blizzard in February when we were visiting family in Belfast and staying at The Fireside Inn (which adjoins this restaurant.) We were delighted to be able to 'dine out and stay in' during these frigid conditions, and to come in from the cold and have a warm... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about the meals you enjoyed at Ocean's Edge Restaurant. I love to hear when a guest eats one day, and enjoys their experience so much that they feel compelled to eat in our restaurant the second night. Thank you for the nice compliment!

The Easter Buffet was very nice. We had reservations for three and when we arrived Carol greeted us and took us to a table near the windows where we could see a beautiful view of the Ocean.

I live in the area so I know what places are good. We use Oceans Edge to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and such. We have always been pleased with the service, the staff makes sure to personalize their service.

Had been out touring all day and just wanted to get something to eat without leaving the hotel. Nothing special as it appears it was carved out of a conference room with a bar added.

My family ate at the Ocean's Edge for dinner while staying at The Inn. The food was great and much better than when we ate there several years ago (we had read other reviews that commented on the improvement). My wife had a haddock florentine special and I had crab-stuffed haddock, both of which were great. Even though the restaurant... More

We were here with a group and had a buffet. The crab stuffed haddock was really good and we had to go back for 2nds. All of the food was good but if you notice a desert that looks good on the way in I would recommend snagging it because they may run out

We have stayed at the Fireside Suites (formerly Comfort Inn) where this restaurant is located several times and the restaurant keeps getting better. The service is so friendly and helpful.
