Morse's Cribstone has some really good dishes...and some very disappointing dishes. We ordered the Lobster Quesadillas and expected to see some lobster. Unfortunately, the lobster was certainly lacking. It tasted good, but for the price, there should've been more lobster. The Haddock sandwich was quite good, though. Morse's has a great beer selection, wonderful views and generally pretty good food.... More

The special was twin lobsters cooked to perfection for under $25! So good that we ate here two nights in a row and ate the same thing. Busy even in the shoulder season so show up early if you don't want to wait for a table.

The lobster roll was delicious and the sweet potato fries could not have been better! We will definitely return here next time we travel to Maine.

A delightful family style restaurant . No reservations are but everyone waits patiently and the food is worth the wait. The lobster is pink and succulent,the meat close to the shell. Our seafood appetizers and the fun cocktails delicious.The waitresses are a combination of efficient and engaging. Get there just before sunset and you will have an experience for all... More

Our B&B recommended Cook's Lobster House but we opted for Morse's Cribstone Grill because of the good TA reviews. It was homey with great views and we didn't need to BYOB. The service was absolutely excellent. Our server was very attentive to all our needs. My husband started with the clam chowder and declared it a winner. I started with... More

Lobsters and more lobsters! The Morse family are wonderful and very hardworking. They have a wonderful location and a diverse menu. However, the prices are a bit steep from where they used to be. Little disappointing.

This place is great. The parking can be a bit of a trick, but don`t let that discourage you, go slow, be patient... you will get a spot.The waitstaff is very friendly and fun. The homemade crafted cocktails are quiet good. We started with the Seafood Nachos, homemage chips that are light and crisp, covered with fried shrimp amd Haddock,... More

You gotta try an order of their seafood nacho's. Homemade chips, fried shrimp and haddock, very fresh toppings. It was excellent. My wife and I both had the broiled haddock basked with onion rings and coleslaw. I live on the coast of Maine and this has to be the freshest fish I've ever had. They had Alagash Black on tap...
