We think Browns has some of the freshest lobster in Maine! Order wholes or twins but not the lobster rolls -- there are better lobster rolls at other places! Their mashed and au gratin potatoes are really great as well.....go hungry!

During our recent six day stay at the Inn we dined at the Restaurant on several occasions. All meals were expertly prepared. Staff were courteous, knowledgeable and thoughtful in their recommendations. Excellent value with a fabulous view of 'The Harbor'.

We chose this restaurant upon the referral of our chef at the inn where we stayed. We were not disappointed! Great service, great food, and the ambiance we were looking for (overlooking the harbor, lantern on the table) to celebrate our anniversary/,my birthday.
