Not to be missed....lovely ambiance and great menu. Try the lobster roll, or haddock sandwich, excellent cooking. Great cocktails. The booths are surrounded by water views and panoramic views.

An out of the way unexpected restaurant find when driving one of mid-coast Maine's peninsulas. We saw lots of cars parked outside Morse's and decided to give it a try. So glad we did! One of the best meals during our weeks stay in Maine. I was reluctant to try a whole lobster, and Mackenzie helped me every step of... More

Excellent and basic offerings- toasted biscuit w/ fish chowder or classic lobster roll. This place is a real "find". Don't pass it by if you are hungry or thirsty. It is that good. Not white table cloth or fancy but down home delicious.

My husband and I had lunch here and loved the location right on the water. I think it is an ideal lunch spot since it offers fabulous fried seafood in sandwiches or plates, and, other welcoming lunch options. They have good choices for beer on tap and had homemade sangria the day we were there. Service was friendly and prompt.... More

I have a new favorite restaurant. The food here is unbelievable. The crab is to die for. It is the best crab I have ever eaten. The lobster is also excellent. The house salad is so good and creative. Fresh green with fresh fruit, mandarin organes,feta cheese, pecans, dried cranberries and a homemade dressing that will blow your socks off.... More

We love popping in here for lunch when we take a ride to the ocean. We tend to order the same things always- me the haddock chowder and my boyfriend the fried clams. We like the food ok but it's not terribly special. We love the location, the service is good, and we usually don't have a wait at lunch... More

Cribstone Grill is a wonderful full service restaurant that offers great drinks, food, service and atmosphere. It takes you across the famous Cribstone bridge which is iconic on the islands. It's a bit more sturdy now too! Definitely a great destination location for those wanting to see the islands and enjoy a scenic twisty drive topped off with some great... More

The location of this restaurant is perfect. The food is certainly average to maybe a little above average. It is one of only a few places that is open late (by Maine standards) because of the bar. Great staff, great location and above average food ....what else do you need.
