We were staying at the Fireside Inn and after reviewing restaurants in the area for a romantic dinner we chose to stay and try Oceans Edge. Perfect.
Food was excellent. Lobster Scampi. Perfect. Stuffed Haddock with Crab. Perfect. The fried mushroom appetizers surprised us with big succulent mushrooms in blue cheese sauce.
Cocktails were done right. They had a bluegrass singer that was quite entertaining.
Will come back again!!!

We were staying in the Fireside Inn, and with Ocean's Edge just steps away, it certainly was convenient. Staff was very friendly, and we enjoyed several seafood dishes. No complaints at all (be sure to ask about nightly specials). And, as several others have noted, the view of the ocean and grounds is great.

My husband and I stayed at the Firside Inn during winter. So, we naturally gravitated to the Ocean's Edge Restaurant, just a short walk down the warm hallway, rather than brave the below 20 weather outside. We were Not Disapointed! The food was great, especially some of the Chef's daily specials. Nice Salads and desserts, too. We would go back again.

Thank you for dining with us and writing a review. I'm pleased that the arctic temperatures encouraged you to try our restaurant. Few who do are disappointed. As the weather continues to improve, I hope that you will join us for dinner again soon.

Parmesean chicken 101: pound/tenderize the chicken, duh. Service 101: don't handle food with the same hands you clear/clean tables with.

The view was the best thing about our experience. Food was OK, except for blueberry pie. The crust was inedible literally. My husband couldn't chew it. Waitress was very nice. But she was not attentive. We had to ask for drink refills.

Thank you for dining with us and thank you for your candid review. I'm sorry that you didn't like the blueberry pie. I'll pass your comments on to the chef, as our food is made on site, and we can make modifications. I do hope that you informed your server about the pie. They would be happy to offer you a more palatable alternative. I hope that you can see this as an isolated incident and allow us to serve you in the future.
