Usually when we have been to the Senator, it has been for lunch, but the Thanksgiving buffet sounded great. We arrived as scheduled at 1:30 PM and were seated immediately. The waitress was there promptly and we ordered a couple of glasses of a Pinot Noir and then set off for the buffet. The appetizer and salad table was tempting,... More

The Thanksgiving Buffet is amazing!! I'm so glad that you joined us this year and the snow didn't keep you away. There is so much to choose from. The Christmas Buffet menu will be posted this week. Please give us a call @ 622-0320 to make a reservation. This will sell out!! Thanks again! Holly More

We had a small conference at the hotel and my host and I went to dinner at Cloud 9 because she said it was the best restaurant in the area. The food is fresh, the waitresses are really friendly and the prices are reasonable. What more could you want?

This restaurant totally surprised me totally. I arrived almost at closing time and I had to hurry my orders in and the pushed the meal to in quite some speed but the dishes were really tasty. I took a cold lobster and the lobster ravioli as a main. Both dishes were fabulous and their selection of beers were nice as... More

I ate here on a Sunday afternoon. There were not a lot of customers at the time I was there, but then again it was 4pm. I ordered the Crab Dip and followed that up with a Scallop Bake. Really good flavors in both dishes. The atmosphere was very nice, I think it would be a great place for a... More

This restaurant is probably the most overrated place to eat in Augusta. I don't understand how it maintains such a good reputation. The decor is dingy and outdated and the service is slow and unprofessional. The food is alright but not worth the price. The Senator Inn and restaurant was great, 30 years ago. Now it is simply trying to... More

The server was pleasant and had a bright smile until we told her we would have the continental breakfast. She cooled her spirits and pointed in the direction of the service. The choices were basic: Scrambled eggs (luke warm), red potato hash (excellent!) ,choices of bread, bagel or English muffin to toast, muffins, variety of fruits, oatmeal and pancakes or... More

I enjoyed the different choices on the menu that made it a little different from the normal Maine menus. It was a busy Saturday night and a private function was just ending. That might explain the initial slow service but sadly, though the waitress was pleasant, the service continued to be slow once the function finished.

Ate here more than once as we were stayng at the hotel. Was convenient and very good food and quite nice ambiance. You can get everything from a tasty hamburger to a delicious meal. The crab cakes are a specialty and very good, and I am fussy about my crab cakes. One of our group loved the haddock. I found... More

Food was nicely cooked and well presented. However prices were quite high, particularly wine and the service was slow despite their being many servers around. I would think twice before eating there again.

The veal was amazingly tender, but a modern restaurant of such high clout should offer more menu items considered less "offensive" than so much beef. The red sauces accompanying the mozzarella sticks and veal parm were amazing due to the obvious addition of white wine as a universal red sauce improve. Did the "fancy" table bread come from Hannaford's? The... More
