We went to Spinney's on a Friday in the early evening. Our server was super nice and helpful. The food was average, and below what we were expecting, but due to the location and view we were still very happy. We walked on the beach...More

This restaurant is at the end of the road adjacent to the Popham Historical Fort. There is actually a wide sand beach along the coastline here. Did not realize there was any beach like this in Maine. Spinney's has a large and varied menu. They...More

I fancy myself an expert on fried seafood. In any case I like it a lot and have eaten tons of it. Spinney's is as close to fried Nirvana as I have experienced. It didn't hurt that we were here on a warm October day...More

The drive out to Spinney's is lovely and when you arrive the view is breathtaking. We had the lobster which was cooked perfectly. Leave room for fresh baked pie. The chef uses creme cinnamon in his blueberry pie which was amazing. The ladies at the...More

Spinney's is about what you would expect from a seasonal, seaside restaurant. The decor is very beachy and the seafood options plentiful. The food was good and the portions significant but, overall, it wasn't spectacular. The number of items that are made from scratch, however,...More

It is on the beach but not a lot of room at high tide. The restaurant itself is very casual and there is no separate room for a group. They are seasonal and it is doubtful that they would close the restaurant for your... More
