This place offers the best chowder I have ever had in my life (and I am from Cape Cod!) The accompanying (warm) blueberry muffin with the chowder makes the meal. The view is beautiful; the cocktails are good and the staff is always pleasant!

Prices are way too high for what you get. I do not like having to pay top dollar for food served on a paper plate or plastic basket. When I pay more than 20 dollars for an entree I want something more than disposables on the table. Service is not too great either since the name of the game is... More

Met up with some former work friends while visiting the area around Brunswick and decided to have dinner at the Dolphin Marina. Sitting out on Basin Point with wonderful views and a nice atmosphere inside, the Dolphin was the ideal setting for dinner. On the evening we were there, the sky was clear and we were presented with a wonderful... More

We went here on the recommendation of someone who was here over 10 years ago.  He’ll be surprised to know that the building has changed but the food is still awesome.   The building is large and has beautiful views of the water.  Our friend recommended the fish chowder and the ‘blueberry muffins as big as your head’.  My husband had...

Delicious food served on Basin Point - the view serene! Went one evening, the flavors in the scallop fritters and the friendly, attentive service, brought us back the next day for lunch. I had a bowl of seafood chowder, the flavor, delightful with a huge portion of haddock in my bowl. Best chowder of our trip! Hubby had a fried... More

We had a very enjoyable afternoon here watching the Patriots/Indians game on the very clear wide-screen TV in the spacious and comfortable bar. Our drinks were very good and the bartender was friendly. The view from the many windows was beautiful. We stayed for dinner in the dining room and my lobster roll was good (although not the best that... More

The fish chowder is so so so good, lots of fresh fish. And the blueberry muffin is quite fun too! Nice location, friendly staff.

Calamari and fish chowder are some of the best I've ever had. Great Main beers on tap such as Bissell Brothers the Substance , Maine Beer Company Lunch, and Allagash Black.

We actually ate here twice - once for lunch; once for dinner. Very nice, quiet atmosphere. Had clam fritters for lunch and lobster stew and a blueberry muffin. Dinner was Seafood Fra Diavlo and Haddock sandwich. Every thing was excellent - right down to the muffin! This is a seasonal restaurant, so be sure to call first.
