Excellent Seaside Lunch

Took a Casco Bay cruise from Portland to Bailey's Island. We docked at a restaurant that most tourists go to, but we decided to walk around the little town a bit and low & behold we found this gem!

I'll tell you right now that the menu and prices are far better than Cook's Lobster House's across the harbor. Go here instead! There is more to enjoy in terms of menu variety, and great mixed drinks like the Shipwreck! The Shipwreck is tequila infused with pineapple and jalapenos. They mix it like a margarita and rim the canning jar... More

We got here early to avoid rush. I enjoyed my salad (lots of fruit, hold the feta) and my friend enjoyed her chicken tenders. The service was not as good as it has been in the past. They weren't busy but it was difficult to get our server's attention to get the correct dipping sauce (the tenders were gone before... More

Best place to eat AND drink on Bailey's Island... visited 3 times during our weeks vacation. Enjoyed the lobster dinner steamed right next door, the salads (relief), and, of course, the Blueberry Pie... get it heated with the ice cream... the best of our vacation. Moving to the bar... we really liked the crowd & the drinks... try the spicy... More

Each summer, we return to Morse's Cribstone Grill, located in an idylic setting by the sea. This year, we had yet another wonderful experience at this restaurant. We were greeted and served by Dawn, who manages, serves and bartends. Dawn attended to our dietary requirements with thorough and cheerful explanations of the menu items. We enjoyed excellent food, beautiful views,... More

When I was a child visiting Bailey Island Morse's didn't exist yet. Since its opening my parents have been frequenting the restaurant and finally I was able to join them last month now that I'm back in New England. I was more than thrilled with this adorable restaurant next to the Cribstone Bridge. It has a relaxed, local vibe and... More

We had dinner the day after we went to Cook's, and there is no comparison in terms of service, quality of food and value for money. Place is always packed so come early. they sell the lobsters also to go, very good value. Had fresh steamers, the seafood platter which was plentiful and tasty, fresh lobster caught by the owners....

This lovely restaurant is just over the bridge on bailey's island in harpswell. Hard to find as is listed under bailey's island instead of harpswell. Not that folks are having trouble finding it! We had to wait 40 minutes but totally worth it! Atmosphere is perfect-busy with a gorgeous view. Drinks were amazing! I had the painkiller special. Strong and... More

We've been coming to Maine for 35 years and have eaten at Morse's several times. We have never been disappointed with what they served. Last night I had one of the best Lobster Rolls ever (and that's a lot of lobster). Great friendly service and good food. Expect to wait for a table so grab a drink and sit on... More

We recently stopped with our 3 older children for lunch. Great views, and the food was all very good. The lobster rolls, crab rolls, scallops, chowder, and even the chicken wrap all had great reviews, Its a casual place with fantastic views. Service was very good and the people at the front could not have been nicer. You can also... More
