We went to 95 Ocean two of the three days that we stayed at the Nonantum. Food was great as was the service and the atmosphere. Live music both nights in a beautiful room that gave us a great view of the sunset. The chef even prepared the Striped Bass that we caught that morning! 95 Ocean is one of... More

Hello there! I read your review and thought, "Wow! What a chart-topper of a day you had!" It doesn't get any better than your experience...catching fresh fish off the boat and getting it cooked up right dockside! You had the best of both worlds: getting out on the ocean on a fine day and savoring the fruits de la mer... More

We showed up with a party of 30 off the Celebrity Cruise ship anxious for our first lobster meal on the trip. We weren't disappointed. The lobster roll was delicious. But as much as I enjoyed it, the bowl of clam chowder has to take the cake. It was the best I've ever had, and believe me I'm had my... More

Dear R. Spicer, Lobster. Clam Chowder. Nothing says Maine like these two staples of our menu! It sounds like you travel a great deal and know your seafood. I forget how spoiled we are to have access to the freshest seafood available. I am so glad you enjoyed it too! Thank you for the high praise! If you love the... More

We had both breakfast and dinner at 95 Ocean. The food was delicious and the portions were just right. Recommend highly for anyone staying at the resort or in the area.

Dear SPabst, Thank you very much for your feedback and compliments! Our breakfast is becoming legendary, especially with the omelette station, smoked salmon and fancy cheese platter on Sunday. Daily you will find real maple syrup and fresh whipped cream to accent our Belgian waffles, plus a variety of pancake flavors (like lime coconut!) and French toast! I am so... More

Dear Shinx, Oh dear. I am sorry you were less than thrilled with your visit to the restaurant. I am curious what you ordered for dinner and whether you shared your feelings with your server, or a manager? We do our absolute best to make things right, but sometimes we cannot fix what we cannot see. We do have an... More

My wife and I enjoy going out to a romantic dinner at the Nonantum Resort. The meals are exceptional and the atmosphere is romantic. We go when they have live music. This year we sat down to a wonderful meal and beautiful relaxing live piano player. Everything was special.

Food wise, I'd rank this restaurant a 4, but unfortunately, the service didn't match. My husband and I thought the food was pretty good. Scallops were very good as well as the stuffed haddock. Bread was great! However, the blueberry pie was TERRIBLE!!! very bland- not sweet. coffee was good:) the mashed potatoes were phenomenal! Unfortunately, the service was not... More

Dear Lefin, Thank you for reaching out to us with your feedback. Constructive criticism is an important tool, especially from someone like yourself that has a background in the food service industry. The scallops are a new menu item this year, created by our new chef. I am so glad you enjoyed them, as well as the haddock and potatoes.... More

Food was terrific, as was the service. We had a great view overlooking the back lawn and the river. The kids enjoyed it as much as the adults.

Dear Wratwood, The scene you described -one of peacefully looking out toward the lawn and the river- to me is timeless and is something that makes this place unique and endearing. The Nonantum has sat on the banks of the river here since 1883. I often stop and envision how this same scene of adults and children enjoying this area... More

I read recent reviews raving about the service at 95 Ocean. That wasn't our experience last night. First, the food. We both ordered the $20.16 special of the day. It was prime rib.
