We liked the view of the ocean from the restaurant we ate in. We found some takeout restaurants a little expensive but the food was decent.

Always love to visit Perkins Cove, it is a quaint spot with little shops and a few lovely restaurants. We ate at Jackies Too outside on the covered deck, food was good and it was a nice setting. Also had the opportunity to sail aboard The Gift with Captain Steve Perkins - a beautiful and super way to spend a... More

Parking prices very high!! It was the height of the season, quite crowded. The popular restaurants have no parking and big lots are overpriced. A hard place to get around for one with limited mobility.

Perkins Cove is full of diverse shops, some pricey and some typical tourist stuff. Watching the boats is just about the best thing -- the bridge raises when a few tall boats go by and it always attracts a crowd to watch this simple procedure. You see/hear people from all over the world -- it's just a Maine icon.

There are many cute shops in Perkins Cove, places to eat, candy store (Perkins Cove Candy) with the BEST FUDGE around! And, the garden near Barnacle Billy's is so beautiful.

The shops are wonderful... Great buys on jewelry and lovely scarves, and women's cloths. No shortage of great ice-cream. Enjoy the rocky shore of the coastline. Great time at Perkins Cove. Anyone looking for Sergio Lub bracelets for Arthritis go to Swamp Johns.

Bottom Line: Wonderful little town, definitely must. Details: We stopped here after walking The Marginal Way. Quaint little shops and restaurants to visit. Parking can be a little pricey but if you are lucky, there are limited 2 hr parking spaces in the center of town. There are lobster boat and Nubble Lighthouse cruises/tours available as well. We chose the... More

Lovely location and don't miss the little Christmas Shop that has one-of-a-kind gifts. Restaurants, gift shops, and great views of the harbor.
