Such a cute local fishing town with breathing views, unique shops and a must do in Ogunquit. Definitely, loved scrolling along the town seeing the fishing boats and houses along the coast. M C Perkins Cove is a great place for lunch. We went back the second day and a the famous lobster roll from one of the street vendors.... More

Marginal Way ends here and what a lovely surprise it was...love little shops, great restaurants and even a harbor where you can go on a cruise out on a boat along the coast! Parking is limited, but with a little patience you can find a spot.

We brought our family here and had an excellent meal! Food is consistent with the area! If you go to Maine you go for seafood if you go to Vermont you go for good home cooking!! But this place is great!!! We will definitely be back!!!

Perkins Cove area is a pleasant location for an early evening visit. Very attractive, new England setting. Gift shops and restaurants to make the visit even more pleasant. A nice walk from Ogunquit if you enjoy thistype of exercise. Parking can be a bit difficult in busy months.
