Everything was absolutely superb! Spinach and artichoke dip was delicious as were the Maine mussels. Had two orders of beef stroganoff, absolutely perfect and our daughter had lobster scampi to die for. Creme brûlée topped off the meal no was exquisite. This chef knows food!

Can't say much about the food, had personal pizzas one night staying in the hotel. Pizza was good, and was called when it was ready so not any time waiting around for the food.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your take-out pizza while you were staying at the hotel. Just call in your order, and we will call your room when it is ready. Many people do take-out, especially when there is a game on. Thank you again for writing. Sincerely, Barry Asalone General Manager More

The most recent time we ate at The Ocean's Edge was during a blizzard in February when we were visiting family in Belfast and staying at The Fireside Inn (which adjoins this restaurant.) We were delighted to be able to 'dine out and stay in' during these frigid conditions, and to come in from the cold and have a warm... More

I live in the area so I know what places are good. We use Oceans Edge to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and such.

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.

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
