Great for a large group. Very accommodating on short notice.

We enjoyed New Year's Eve at Coast Bar and Bistro in a cozy party of 6 so much that we asked on a whim if they could handle a party of 20 for dinner just two days later. The staff set aside an entire portion of the room for us and assigned two waitstaff to our party. The chef greeted... read more

My mother and I went here for Christmas Eve dinner, as we continue to seek a replacement for the formerely wonderful Maine Dining Room at the Hariseeket. While the decor was not as nice as we would have liked for the occasion, it was still a great experience. The menu was fun and creative, and the food excellently prepared. We... More

We flew from Albuquerque to Boston which made it a long enough day. Then drove a rental car two hours north along I 95 toward Brunswick before encountering a leaky tire which went flat. A saturday night in the middle of not much led to changing to the small spare tire and limping into the Daniel Inn. Desk Clerk Christine... More

We went last week for lunch, got there and the front desk person said yes they were open for lunch. We went into the bistro, nice fire going in the dual sided fireplace, and tasteful sign asking us to wait to be seated. We waited for a person to appear, after 5 minutes there still was no one in either... More

For my 50th Birthday my husband, parents, mother-in-law, sons and daughter-in-law went to the Coast for dinner. I called ahead to give them a heads up that we would be coming in at 5:30. I was asked if we could come at 5 or 5:15 as a group of 45 were coming and they didn't want our food to get... More

Hubby & I decided to have a quiet, cozy Sunday afternoon meal, and decided to try out the new restaurant at The Stone, formerly Captain Daniel Stone Inn. Excellent decision on our part! The menu had some different and delightful choices, and we had to try "Kale Chips" for the first time, which we highly recommend!! Hubby chose the meatloaf... More

Went here for a dinner with friends. The food was good if a little inconsistently priced and prepared. I ordered the fish and chips and it was very good and reasonably priced. A whole filet very nicely cooked for 15.00. My husband ordered the halibut which was 32.00 and only a small, approximately 3" across, piece of fish which was... More

I had a very decadent crab chowder, crab and lobster sausage slider (quite delicious) and ended with a pumpkin cheesecake. No complaints here! My daughter had the salmon and was also quite happy with her dinner.

We knew we were going to be late arriving at this location, and then actually arrived an hour later than planned during traffic. We had alerted staff as to our delay.

The food was cooked well, fresh, not processed, and homemade. The staff went out of their way to make the best experience. My wife is vegan and the head chef came out and made special accomodations. A+ experience!
