Imaginative, thoughtfully sourced menus the order of the day at this seaside resort
Delightful food and spirits, designed to nourish the soul, are the order of the day at the classic Spruce Point Inn on Maine’s coast. Menus are inspired by fresh-caught seafood, sustainably raised livestock, the harvest from local farms and fresh herbs (some from the inn’s own gardens). And the dining venue locations are inspired by the inn’s waterfront location between the sea and the woodlands. Watch the sailboats as you linger over lobster rolls on the Grandview Deck; enjoy a cocktail and some truffle fries at The Salty Stag, the inn’s cheery gathering place; and marvel at shimmering ocean views while you also marvel at the grilled lobster at the elegant Whiteclover restaurant.
Diverse menu, casual atmosphere and that bay view make dining a treat
A casual atmosphere and high-quality cuisine make dining at Fireside Inn & Suites Ocean’s Edge restaurant a real pleasure whether it’s just the two of you or a big-family occasion. And, in addition to the menu, which features classic, original, innovative seasonal offerings, there’s that spectacular view of Penobscot Bay. Grab a burger or a pizza under an umbrella on the patio (or bring a cocktail out there and enjoy the firepit at night) or settle in for dinner, starting perhaps with spinach and mushroom crab cakes, moving on to New England clam chowder (of course!), then baked stuffed haddock and a selection of delectable desserts. There is something for everyone at Ocean’s Edge.

Sebasco Harbor means great restaurants with real Maine flavors
The two restaurants at Sebasco Harbor Resort, the Pilot House and the Ledges Pub, both offer diners spectacular ocean views. And both focus on serving organic and locally-produced foods purchased from New England farmers, lobstermen, fishermen, cheesemakers, dairy farmers, and cattle ranchers. The Pilot House offers an elegant setting with breathtaking sunset vistas. Appetizers include seared scallops, Atlantic mussels, and fresh local oysters. Among the entrees: grilled chipolte salmon with wild rice, lobster carbonara with angel hair pasta, and filet mignon with sweet potato hash. At the more casual Ledges enjoy clam chowder, steamed lobster, scallops, and fried clams. In summer months we also offer lobster bakes, blueberry pancake breakfasts, and our "family suppahs" with a whole roasted pig.
Fresh-off-the-boat seafood and breathtaking harbor views a popular combo at this restaurant
The seafood could not be fresher, the atmosphere could not be more welcoming, and the harbor views could not be more spectacular: That about sums up the delights of the Boothbay Harbor Restaurant at the Tugboat Inn. The restaurant, built around the original superstructure of an historic tugboat (you can climb up into the original wheelhouse), is a favorite with locals and visitors alike for its extensive menu (lobster rolls, chicken pot pie, baked stuffed haddock, pot roast, sizzling steaks), comprehensive wine list and sweeping panoramic views of the picturesque working harbor. Head up to the Top Deck for crab cakes, a crock of chowder and cocktails or to the Marina Lounge & Cafe, overlooking the marina, for live music and pub food.
An amazing harborfront restaurant with breathtaking views and a creative menu
When you dine at the Fisherman’s Wharf Inn Restaurant, you must prepare to be dazzled, first by the view, then by the food. The water views from nearly every seat in the restaurant are breathtaking, whether you are on the outside deck or inside gazing out at Boothbay Harbor from the comfortable dining room’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The award-winning restaurant’s reinvented coastal cuisine includes freshly caught Maine lobster and fish, sizzling steaks, creative salads and a kids’ menu with all their favorites. Enjoy made-from-scratch lobster bisque or steak tips in the dining room or a clam roll and blueberry and arugula salad in the intimate pub. Great craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails are also specialties of the house.
