This looks like a dive but the staff was great and the food seafood plater was awesome. Childs burger was juicy and my crabmeat salad was filling and tasty. We walked away full without breaking the bank.

Very "Maine" kind of place, nothing fancy. Ok food at a reasonable price ($20 for a clam dinner with fries and slaw). The food and service were OK but I would likely go elsewhere next time. Did not stay at the Inn, only ate in the restaurant during the lunch hour.

I was driving around the island and was hungry and missing my favorite MDI restaurant, Capt'n Nemos. I decided to stop here since it was open and I was hungry. When I walked in there were a couple tables - one was finishing up and another had already ordered. I ended up ordering a cheeseburger and it was exactly what... More

Ravenous after hike on Cadillac Mountain (beware descending to Bubble Pond, it's steep!). Friendly but inconsistent service. Stamped tin ceiling airy dining room. Great buttery and milky chowder came with a surprisingly spicy cornbread. Good fish on a unhelpful bun and a scattering of chips. Great ice water (no kidding!) in pretty glasses. Good burgers.

We ate lunch at the Lighthouse Inn yesterday. There was only one other group seated when we arrived but the service was poor. The waitress asked inappropriate questions and kept making remarks about how my partner and I were interacting. She didn't know the menu and asked how I wanted my meal prepared then brought it out a different way.... More

We have eaten out 7 nights and this being our last we decided to go back to the lighthouse inn restaurant since we had a great experience earlier in the week and tonight was no different. The lobster stew was DELISSSISH. Someone was leaving and suggested the dish and there was almost a full lobster in it. Great food. I... More

Thanks for dining with us not just once, but twice in the same week! We so enjoy getting to know our guests. After more that 30 years in business, we're new to this Tripadvisor thing and still trying to figure it out. Say hi next time you're in! More

We ate lunch here in Mid-May before the start of the season. We were the only ones in the restaurant. The service and ambiance was good, but the food was truly not very good. I imagine that in-season when there are a lot of people around, this restaurant is probably pretty good.

After bicycling the Park Loop we stopped and had lunch. We were treated to relaxed atmosphere, good food, attentive staff, reasonable prices. Don't go there if you want white table cloths and candles. They creatively modified a menu selection to meet dietary needs.

We stopped in to eat at the resuraunt at on July 16, 2012 while on a family trip. We got there early and had a couple of appetizers while we pondered the menu. The only problem with the beer battered onion rings was that my children were fighting over them. My mother and I shared the stuffed mushrooms and they... More

We did not stay at the inn so I can't speak to the quality of the rooms. We ate lunch there one day while driving around MDI. The decoration was relatively kitschy and fun(unintentionally I think). The service was great and the food was good. There aren't a lot of options in Seal Harbor for eating but this is a... More
