I have been there three or four times and have been thrilled each time. The food is delicious and the views are spectacular! My favorite is the seafood lasagna. The seafood fra Diablo was also very good. Each entree comes with a big delicious blueberry muffin. It is a little pricey, but well worth it for the service, views and... More

This is about as "Maine" as you can get. You are enjoying lunch in a working boat yard/marina looking out onto Casco Bay, Harpswell Sound and all the pretty little islands in between. The food is what you would expect from an ocean side Maine restaurant. A bit pricey for locals, but prepared and presented nicely in a gorgeous setting.... More

I had fried haddock basket (chunks of haddock, battered fries, coleslaw) and my wife had the turkey sandwich with homemade chips. The portions were large enough to preclude room for dessert (my wife actually took half of her's home). The haddock was cooked perfectly and not at all greasy. The fries were excellent and the coleslaw was good (it is... More

This place offers the best chowder I have ever had in my life (and I am from Cape Cod!) The accompanying (warm) blueberry muffin with the chowder makes the meal. The view is beautiful; the cocktails are good and the staff is always pleasant!

Prices are way too high for what you get. I do not like having to pay top dollar for food served on a paper plate or plastic basket. When I pay more than 20 dollars for an entree I want something more than disposables on the table. Service is not too great either since the name of the game is... More

Met up with some former work friends while visiting the area around Brunswick and decided to have dinner at the Dolphin Marina. Sitting out on Basin Point with wonderful views and a nice atmosphere inside, the Dolphin was the ideal setting for dinner. On the evening we were there, the sky was clear and we were presented with a wonderful... More

We went here on the recommendation of someone who was here over 10 years ago.  He’ll be surprised to know that the building has changed but the food is still awesome.   The building is large and has beautiful views of the water.  Our friend recommended the fish chowder and the ‘blueberry muffins as big as your head’.  My husband had...

Delicious food served on Basin Point - the view serene! Went one evening, the flavors in the scallop fritters and the friendly, attentive service, brought us back the next day for lunch. I had a bowl of seafood chowder, the flavor, delightful with a huge portion of haddock in my bowl. Best chowder of our trip! Hubby had a fried... More
