A trip to Maine isn't complete without dinner at Morse's. Always good to see familiar faces and the atmosphere... Had lobster and steamers and my bride ordered the salad with a lobster roll. The food here is always good and fresh. Morse's is one of...More

Food was absolutely up to mid-range/lower-high-range standard for Portland or Boston. Price points will not shock anyone who is used to that sort of dining. The pie is homemade and was excellent. Good service, good views. Will be dining here again.

I loved the setting and the people. The lobster dip was amazing. I'm a huge fan of mussels and these didn't hit it for me. Too much wine flavor?!? The lobster rolls looked amazing and the fried fish was great. I'd come back if we...More

We were glad to return to the Cribstone for another summer season. What we found ranged from high to low. We arrived a bit late, so the place was not crowded, though we weren't the last to leave. My drink order was all mixed up.(How...More

Decided to have dinner here on a Saturday evening. As always, this place is overcrowded. The hostess took our name and we sat at the bar. We waited about 25 minutes for the bartender to notice us at the small 12 seat bar and fill...More

We were on Bailey's island with a group of 10 friends and ate at Morse's our last night (and actually ordered lobster to go the night before - great deal on whole cooked lobster). The food was great and the service was good. The breading...More

Do you still grill? If so what days and hours? Weather permitting?

Sadly we don't grill outside at this location as there isn't space. Our wharf is beautiful spot for a Shipwrecked Margarita though even without a grill. Hope to see you soon!
MY BAD, Morse's Cribstone Grill closes after Columbus Day....plenty of time to enjoy a Bloody Mary at Morse's!

Seasonal, hard to staff year round, most staff return to school or teaching jobs, lose too much money on snow days in winter. Other places use 'foreign labor' and their work permits only last so long.
Do you have any options for VEGAN family members?

Not many vegan choices except a delicious house salad (minus the feta cheese), but packed with berries, oranges and pecans. We also have tasty sweet potato fries, steamed corn on the cob, & onion rings. Hope that helps!
