Savor the flavors of Maine at this family-run restaurant on the beach
There’s a lot of local flavor to be had in York Beach at the Anchorage Inn, especially in their Sun and Surf Restaurant and beachside deck. Innovative and traditional seafood dinners are served along with dramatic surfside views from the restaurant’s three patios and cheerful dining room. Whether you’re looking for classic boiled lobsters, clam chowder or broiled haddock or juicy burgers, steaks and lobster risotto, you’ll find it on the restaurant’s eclectic menu. A family-run fixture on the beach since 1963, the Sun and Surf knows how to make guests feel right at home, from friendly service to that creamy Maine-made ice cream for dessert. The inn also has a poolside cafe for light breakfasts and quick snacks.
Dining by the sea takes on a special flavor at cliffside resort
Suspended above the Atlantic and surrounded by ocean views, the flavors of the sea inspire the menus at Cliff House Maine’s signature restaurant, The Tiller. Breakfast includes reimagined New England favorites including Farmer’s Hog Hash, Breakfast Poutine, and a Peeky Toe Crab Burrito, while you can enjoy a hearty Seafood Cobb Salad at lunch, or the catch of the day or a locally-sourced steak for dinner. With seasonal menus featuring ingredients sourced from local farmers, fisherman, markets, and purveyors, The Tiller invites diners to savor their meals while they watch the surf crash on the rocks below. Or, if you seek more casual fare, visit the seasonally open Nubb’s Lobster Shack to grab a brown butter lobster roll or local draft beer at one of the picnic tables before enjoying a game of shuffle board or one of the vintage arcade games.
