The Dolphin keeps getting better each year in so many areas. To go along with having built one of the best marinas in Maine, the Saxton family is spot on this season in the restaurant. New outdoor dining, better kitchen, great servers, really comfortable bar...More

Okay, so,beautiful location. Great view of the water, trendy nautical decor and a very busy restaurant. But the food is just okay. Not bad, but nothing special either. We’d been in Maine for 4 days, touring a lot and eating lunch and dinner out every...More

We were staying in Brunswick and were meeting friends for dinner on a Monday when many restaurants in town are closed. So we found The Dolphin - about a 30 minute drive from Brunswick. We had a party of 7 so were able to get...More

I think it was around $30-32 at the time and worth every penny! The seafood lasagna was absolutely delicious and worth the $25 too!
