A delightful evening

We were traveling back from a ride and saw this restaurant along RT. 1. This was our first time and enjoyed our meal. They were somewhat stingy with the rolls; we were offered one per person- opt for the corn bread. We were too full for dessert, but we may go back and try again.

One of the best places we ate at on our vacation in Belfast. The service was great! We had been driving for 5 hours to get there and had our dogs with us and they were very accommodating in allowing them to be on the deck and even offered them water. Would definitely recommend (which we did to several people... More

My husband had the rib eye and I had the tuna steak. Both were very good. The veggies were fresh and crisp. The 1/2 portion caesar salads were also excellent although it would ve nice to have fresh pepper ground and fresh romano cheese grated at the table. Service was very good also. My one suggestion would be to use... More

We enjoyed dinner here, it's a busy restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. The menu is vast and takes a little time to read. We followed some advice on TripAdvisor and arrived after 7.30pm on Saturday night, we didn't have to wait for a table. Good food, good service in attractive surroundings.

We were staying in Belfast for a few days. We were lucky enough to eat here the first night. The food was amazing. We even ordered dessert, which we very rarely do and were not disappointed. We had several conversations with one of the owners who is also the hostess. She made our experience even better. The food was so... More

Among the many reasons to visit Maine in August is the seafood. Unfortunately so much of the lobster, steamers, scallops, etc are served in "Lobster Pounds" which means eat outside at a picnic table. I much prefer indoors with table cloths. And if that is your preference then Nautilus is your best choice in the Belfast-Searsport area. The food is... More

Our 3rd trip To Belfast and we eat at Nautilus at least once each time. The place is noticeably busier now than in 2013 for good reasons. The food is very good, the service is impeccable. Our waiter, Jerry, we remember from our first trip. A real pro!. Not really a fine dining place, but somewhere to go for a... More

Food was great, view is great, and big lawn for kids to run on. Can go down to the beach for a walk as it's right there.
