I live in the area so I know what places are good. We use Oceans Edge to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and such. We have always been pleased with the service, the staff makes sure to personalize their service. The menu is varied which can in some instances lead to problems, but no matter what I've tried I have been happy.... More

Had been out touring all day and just wanted to get something to eat without leaving the hotel. Nothing special as it appears it was carved out of a conference room with a bar added. The night we were there was a bus tour having a buffet in the attached conference room with the sliding panels open. In the summer... More

My family ate at the Ocean's Edge for dinner while staying at The Inn. The food was great and much better than when we ate there several years ago (we had read other reviews that commented on the improvement). My wife had a haddock florentine special and I had crab-stuffed haddock, both of which were great. Even though the restaurant... More

We were here with a group and had a buffet. The crab stuffed haddock was really good and we had to go back for 2nds. All of the food was good but if you notice a desert that looks good on the way in I would recommend snagging it because they may run out

We have stayed at the Fireside Suites (formerly Comfort Inn) where this restaurant is located several times and the restaurant keeps getting better. The service is so friendly and helpful. We too 3 grandkids there and they were very accommodating! The menu is extensive and the food was very, very good.

What a comfortable atmosphere in a beautiful setting! Watching all the sailboats go by was a special treat! I shared a simple meal - red wine and a Mediterranean Pizza - with a friend at the bar.

We went to the restaurant late on a Thursday and their lobster specials were sold out. Since we really wanted lobster, we had a beer and left. The staff went into the kitchen to check and came up with clams, and then suggested two other nearby restaurants when we told them we really wanted lobster. The next evening we returned... More

We went to the masonic lodge it had a musical group there. That was really awesome. They offered wine, cheese, fruit for $20.00 per person. It was something different to do. They did a fabulous job. we weren't disappointed

By the time we arrived at Fireside Hotel we were very tired and did not want to drive into town. We probably should have. We had a voucher for a free drink with entrée and that was great. We both had pork with maple glaze. The pork was a little tough but the glaze was really flavorful. Garlic mashed potatoes... More
