Try the clam chodda'

Rich, creamy, clammy clam chowder. Friendly, attentive service. A taste of local Down East sea food!

I have eaten at this restaurant several times. I give them the benefit of the doubt and regret going there for a meal. It is before the summer season and the service was not good. The scallops on my salad were chewy. Had to ask for a side dish ordered because it was forgotten. I was disappointed in the past... More

Our stay this past April was at the outstanding Log Cabin Inn down the road. The staff there recommended The Cribstone Grill for dinner. My wife and I walked through the front door at the Cribstone to friendly hospitality! It was uphill from there. The food quality, the clam chowder, our outstanding waiter, the ocean view, and the reasonable prices!... More

We also stayed locally at Bailey Island Motel and walked down the driveway to the main road and into the wait line for Morse's Cribstone Grill. The hostess greeted us promptly, made sure we had an idea of the wait time and showed us where to wait/be comfortable until a table cleared. The wait was worth it! The food selection... More

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.
