Outstanding view and awesome seafood

This place is a hidden gem on Bailey's island. We had a beautiful view even a bald eagle flew by us while we were sitting at our table on the dock ! The lobster chowder was amazing best I have had. The broiled seafood plate was also delicious the only negative was the shrimp are very small. Not... read more

Wonderful food, wonderful view of the Cribstone bridge. This little place has a bar too. You can also call ahead and have lobsters cooked to go! We loved eating here and we will go back.

Clams, scallops, haddock. however prepared, are done to perfection. Morse's get busy on the weekends but weeknights are mellow. It is absolutely worth the drive from Brunswick, just for the location alone.

We stayed nearby with a group of friends for a week - we ate here a number of times during the week, it was so good! Top notch service, the food was delicious and the atmosphere and view can't be beaten. I highly recommend the clam chowder and the toffee dessert in a jar. Yummmm :)

Food is delicious! I had their scallops, lobster quesadillas and was in heaven. That said, you don't want to miss their house salad. Put it this way: I've never wanted seconds on salad before. It's chock full of fresh greens, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries plus feta and their sesame house dressing. Yum. That's not all though. Ordering dessert is a... More

Found Morse's happenstance last night with my fiancé and discovered a gem of a spot. We were beyond delighted not only by the cabin-like comfy-kitch decor, friendly hostess and bartender but also the creative cocktails, healthy seafood offerings and spectacular views. We both ordered specials of the day, Haddock stuffed w Lobster and Honey-glazed Salmon over fresh greens and berries.... More

The food is very good. Went with friends and enjoyed lobster rolls, lobster stew and haddock chowder. The selection of beers on tap and bottled was very good, loved the Alagash Black. And the desserts were also excellent. Their wild blueberry pie is 'to die' for. Have had the same at more expensive restaurants but this was the best of... More

Did not disappoint, esp. on the gluten front. Fried clams gluten free were sooooo good, and our service (waitress) was excellent. The view and atmosphere are truly postcard setting. All and all, quintessential Maine - with really good food and service - very much worth the trip.

Look nowhere else on Bailey Island! Wonderful drinks, food, views, and atmosphere! The bar at Morse's always has an awesome selection of cocktails and their food is delicious. Whenever I am on the island, we come almost nightly.
