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. The staff was great! They really seemed to enjoy being there. The conversation at the bar was lively and fun. A comment from... More

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

We had crab turnovers an appetizer, they were delicious. For my meal I had one of the specials, the Atlantic Haddock with sweet potato and maple glazed carrots. The whole meal was wonderful. Our waitress Sam was very helpful and friendly.

Dined here on a business trip. We felt the food was expensive for what you got. The check out for our group took like 1/2 an hour since they were having trouble with their machine.

The menu selections were just okay, but the selection of draft beers on tap was good. If you're just staying a night or two and you don't want to venture into downtown Belfast or Searsport, why not eat here? The chowder is good.

Thank you for joining us for dinner. I am glad that you enjoyed your food and the selections of draught beers. To maintain the freshest food, we do limit our selections during the winter. However, in summer, we have the opportunity to add in specials featuring local produce and fresh off the boat seafood. Come join us! Sincerely, Barry Asalone... More
