Terrific first night dinner while staying at the Samoset. Sometimes the restaurants at resorts cuts corners to reduce expenses and increase profit. Not this place. High quality food. The second night we ate in the lounge area as we got back late from visiting Acadia and Bar Harbor. Very entertaining performer (Matty B) was performing which really made the night.... More

Although the service was a little slow even though the restaurant was not busy, they redeemed themselves when my salmon entrée was served. Not only was it delicious, it stayed hot all through the meal! The bread and salad were also very good.

This has the most beautiful location of any restaurant in the Rockport, Camden area. It is stunning. The food is well prepared and consistently good. We are particularly fond of the lobster bisque and the pizza. We also have enjoyed the salads and the seafood offerings. It is a bit pricey, but this is expected in a resort like Samoset.... More

Went out to the Samoset for happy hour at the urging of locals who go there a bit; excellent beer and wine selections and special pricing on individual pizzas. Service was great and there is an opportunity to sit outside overlooking the golf course and ocean. Definitely worth the short drive from Rockland or Camden if you aren't staying at... More

IP3806 Thank you for joining us for the “happiest time of the day”. The pizzas are one of the best deals around and my favorite, I love the Umbria. Sitting on the deck in the summer or in front of the fireplaces during the cold months you just can’t go wrong. I hope you make back in soon. More

Food was great, our waitress Jessica was better. Enjoyed our family meal there until Nick the lounge singer began his program with a pseudo-KennyG set that was way too loud to continue any normal conversations with our elder family members.

Our only disappointment here is that when we arrived, they said we had requested to be inside. Since we never do that, I knew there was a mistake but didn't want to fuss. Would have much preferred outdoor seating, and that spoiled it a bit for me, but everything was very nice. Our server was very good, wines had reasonable... More
