We had never had halibut before. I haven't had it since but it is now my favorite fish. We had a great dinner MP soup fog we could barely see our sailboat right out the window from our table and this was on the first mooring off the beach. It was just a perfect meal after a sale over from... More

We ate at the restaurant for 2 nights. Each time the food and service where great. Not over priced for quality. Reservation are a must during season.

Excellent food in a beautiful setting with a great view of the harbor. everything we tried was great: Clam chowder, mussels, and haddock. You may bring in your own wine.

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Island Inn 3 different times this season. Michael & Jaye have found the formula for success. Customer service both at the Inn and restaurant were spot on - friendly and efficient. The food - whether it was the amazing breakfast buffet, lunch or dinner - was always superb. I enjoyed everything from... More

We were looking forward to our dinner there as we were only two nights on the island. Mid day I stopped to see about a reservation and was asked where I was staying - not at Island Inn. Told that they only had 8 pm or 8:30 pm- earlier preference for their clients-there was no other place to eat on... More

A delightful lunch with a view of the harbor. I enjoyed the fish tacos, my sisters both had the island made veggie burger, we shared the blueberry soup and crumble which left us speechless...they were incredible!

I would love to stay over during my next visit. The restaurant is great, friendly service, quick food, nice portions. The rocking chairs on the front porch with views of the harbor are SUPERIOR. Nice place to hang out while waiting for the boats.

The seafood & fish couldn't be fresher. We ate here 2 nights and several in our party ordered the Monhegan Seafood Stew the first night. It was so wonderful that others in our group ordered it the second night - what a disappointment! - there was so very little broth, it looked & tasted like a different dish.

We wanted this restaurant experience to be amazing, however, it was less than stellar. My husband and I wanted our first night on the island to be special and it was to be a celebratory dinner for us. We ordered filet mignons and for $32 each, we looked forward to a wonderful meal. He ordered his steak "cold" rare (extremely... More

My review is of a specific encounter I unexpectedly had with a waitstaff. I was sitting across from a family member who had ordered a vegetarian dish and we had ordered the same one. She was dissatisfied with hers. When she expressed her dissatisfaction, the waiter whom she was speaking with looked at me and asked what I thought of... More
