Ate here one night while staying at the connected hotel ( Fireside Inn & Suites). The food was good, prices average. Staff was very friendly.

Food was excellent. Service quick and friendly. Menu was diversified. Husband had the lobster alfredo in a delicious pastry and we had lobster bruschetta and a stuffed haddock. All excellent.

Sounds like a lobster extravaganza. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. The Chef does lobster six ways, but only during the season. She likes to keep it fresh. I'll pass your compliments on to the service staff as well as the culinary staff. We hope to see you again. Thanks for writing. Sincerely, Barry Asalone More

Good choice for restaurant with a view. We ate there twice, once inside and once on the patio. Interesting menu. Try the lobster turnover! Chef even made up a dish that had been discontinued. Service was exceptional! Prices were competitive with other similar restaurants in Belfast.

Thanks for your review. I'm with you, I love the Chef's lobster turnover. And she only does it in the summer. It's another reason to look forward to summer in Maine. Lately, she has a meatball appetizer. It's four meatballs stuffed with bleu cheese and bacon, and finished under the broiler. It's like stuffed mushroom caps without the mushrooms. It... More

The waitstaff was wonderful and very helpful with food recommendations. The view was A+ and the food was good enough that the prices didn't hurt :)

I'm going to be honest we weren't sure about this restaurant based on other reviews but the menu posted looked good. We decided to give it a try especially since it was in our hotel and I'm glad we did. The service was great. We really enjoyed the food. The lobster bruschetta was fantastic!

Thank you for your review. I haven't tried the Chef's lobster Bruschetta yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Next time you visit, try the lobster turnover. It's lobster meat in a light Alfredo sauce, tucked into filo dough and baked in the oven. It's my summer favorite. Thanks for the compliments on food and service. I'll pass your comments... More

Though the view might be nice, there was nothing unique or exceptional about the food. We had much better food, with more choices on the menu, at other places we ate at.

Thank you for taking the time to write. I'm sorry that you didn't find what you were looking for among the selections on the menu. Since our food is prepared to order, we cannot offer as many choices as , say, Appleby's. That said, we offer twenty one entrees on our regular menu and an additional six on our lobster... More

Thanks for your review. I'm sorry that you found the food bland. I don't know what you ordered. If you choose to try us again, we can season to taste, as we make all of our food to order.

Had a great Thanksgiving dinner. All the traditional items were all homemade and delicious. Staff was very busy as it was crowded but, still took the time to check on everyone. Great atmosphere and a hidden gem for a hotel restaurant.

We were staying at the hotel with our dog and appreciated the convenience of the restaurant offering take out. The food was wonderful. We had the stuffed haddock and a grilled chicken sandwich. The food was very good. The server even helped us carry our food back to our room. We will be back.
