Complete Package for a Dining Experience: great food, service and ambience!

Morse's Cribstone is just a short walk from Bailey Island Motel where my husband and I stayed two nights. We tried it the first night, and were so impressed with the friendly, helpful staff. My husband uses a mobility scooter, and one of the manager's (or maybe an owner) came out and helped us in a side door. Then, the... More

Great "designer" cocktails- very unexpected but they were excellent. Steamers were great, service was fast, and we loved the waterside view. Can't believe all the times I've been to the Brunswick area, I've never been there! Will definitely go back soon!

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.
