Always delicious lobster, love their house salad with fruit and house dressing. My husband thinks their blueberry pie is the best! Drinks are generous and cocktails are creative. Service excellent and friendly.

Everything about this place personifies what we visitors think Maine should be. The rough coastal view out the windows, the lobster boats, the friendly staff, the weathered wood finish - all perfection. Had mussels, a haddock sandwich, great onion rings, and a couple of brew. To top it all - we picked up a couple of steamed lobster next door... More

Stopped in on our way off the island on Saturday afternoon. Was pleasantly surprised to be seated quickly, and we had salads that were just delicious! Friendly help, and quick service>

Visited this wonderful place and had a delicious late afternoon meal. The waitress was wonderful! She took the time to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was wonderful and the price for the twin lobster was excellent. The desserts were amazing. They have plenty of gluten free options including desserts for anyone with a gluten allergy. A...

The family was out for a quick dinner, and stopped by the Cribstone Grill. We did the typical Maine seafood fare ... Lobster rolls, haddock sandwich, clam chowder ... all was great. We do plan on a return trip to try the sea food nachos, that looked great (didn't see them until after we ordered). Visited July 2014 We made... More

After buying, cooking and chowing down on a couple of large lobsters from Morse's pound a couple days before, we finally tried out their restaurant. Compared to our Cook's experience, it was like night and day, but you still need to bring money to the islands. We had the mussels, lobster quesadilla followed up by by broiled haddock and scallop...

Never had a bad meal here yet! Seafood is the star along with the view of the water, Morse's Cribstone Grill is located adjacent to the famous, one of a kind bridge that spans Will's Gut which separates Baily and Orrs Island. Friendly and capable service along with traditional offerings makes this a good place for lunch or dinner. It... More

We dined at this lovely spot on our first night in the area and just had to return since there were so many great menu options. As long-time NE residents who "know seafood", we have to say that we've never had better than this. The staff is friendly, attentive and charming. But, the highlight is the food. What wonderful entrees!... More

I had read about the Cribstone Grill and then got a second recommendation to go there from my cousin, who grew up in Maine. As a kid and young adult, I used to go to Cook's regularly, so I was familiar with Bailey Island. I went to Cook's a couple of years ago and although the food was good, the... More

My friend got the lobster quesadilla and said it was incredible. I opted for something different and got the cheeseburger. It was very good but the quesadilla won the day. It has a great view of the harbor and the cribstone bridge.
