Wonderful menu in a pleasant setting and topped off with friendly service. We had halibut and a seafood stew and both were excellent. The wine list was also very good. We can't wait to dine here again.

We had a some great burgers and beers at Deep water which is part of Arborvine. The 44 N stout was delicious. I would highly recommend you check it out.

I took my wife and adult kids for wife’s birthday. Not disappointed. The service and meal were among the best we ever had. Food was perfectly made. Son was former chef and was very pleased. Not for budget minded but meal alone would be enough...to satisfy. Extras got pricy.More

This is a great restaurant with great food and great service. Plan to spend a relaxed evening enjoying your food. It is definitely not fast food. The atmosphere is awesome.

Came in with no prior knowledge of the restaurant and were pleased. A beautiful interior, fantastic food and a great friendly staff. I was so comfortable and at ease...No pressure just good food, good drink and good people.

We stayed one night in beautiful Blue Hill, Maine and enjoyed a truly delicious meal at Arborvine. Everything we had was top notch, but the highlight for us was the local fresh oysters on the halfshell. Lovely ambiance and excellent service.

Paula and I were in Blue Hill for a meeting and decided to have dinner beforehand. Not sure where to go we drove by Arborvine/DeepWater Brewing Company and decide to give it a try. Paula had the Fish & Chips which included a huge piece...of perfectly fried haddock, extremely tasty fries, and slaw. I opted for ne of the specials; Salmon with Mushroom Risotto and greens. The salmon was superb. I am not normally a huge fan of risotto. I’ll eat it but don’t seek it out. This rissoto was excellent the amount of mushrooms and flavor, wonderful. I also enjoyed DeepWater Brewings interpretation of a Weiss beer and a Mocha Caramel Flan for dessert. We will be visiting Arborvine again.More

The carrot ginger squash soup along with the Duck ( leg + thigh) was outstanding. The Pear & beet salad is another delicious appetizer. The dark chocolate mousse was the highlight! A go’s service and recommendations were supreme. This restaurant is a keeper, excellent for...friends, romantic evenings or just exquisite dinning.More

It is a white table cloth restaurant so business casual is appropriate. Would not show up in t-shirt and shorts. Enjoy it is one of my very favorite restaurants.

Arborvine is open full time until November at which point we take our fall break for a few weeks and reopen after Thanksgiving on a more limited schedule for the winter months.
