About
If you’ve ever dined on a luxury ocean liner, you know: Water all around piques your appetite, invites you to slow down and enthralls throughout a meal like no other show on earth. And if you haven’t, that experience awaits at the Cape Arundel Inn & Resort’s glass-walled, waterfront, fine dining restaurant: Ocean. Memorable evenings at Ocean begin with cocktails, like our Maine maple syrup-sweetened Amber Sky, on the inn’s relaxing front porch or at the bar. Continue your culinary journey in the dining room, where every table has a view of the frothy blue sea. Ocean’s creative menus change with the seasons, showcasing not only Maine-caught seafood in signature dishes like Lobster Thermidor,

Hello, Ocean Restaurant at Cape Arundel Inn is a smart casual establishment. Some people do arrive wearing them but it isn’t required to dine with us.
