I spent a long weekend at the inn in late August. My wife and I ate at this restaurant several times. The food was quite good. It is pricey but the view and service make up for the slight overprice.

It's tough to be a hotel restaurant in an area that is known nationwide for excellent food. Sea Glass offers incredible ocean views, and the food is great, too. Very pretty, comfortable dining room and attentive service. We have been to some great restaurants in Portland, and Sea Glass really stands up to the competition. A bit on the pricey... More

We stayed at the Inn from January 22-26 as we got married here. We had plans to leave for on day and go to Portland for dinner. HOWEVER, we never left the Inn....we chose to eat every meal at Sea Glass. The food was excellent and service couldn't be any better. Admittedly, the food isn't cheap- but the taste and... More

Great view out over the grounds to the ocean, comfortable appointments, excellent staff--very interesting and varied menu, with small items which my wife appreciates. Not cheap, but about as expensive as it looks, and the food and service make it a very good deal.

Dinner on Christmas Night. Yes, I know, nobody wants to work on a holiday. Certainly received that vibe from the staff at the hotel and this "acclaimed" restaurant. Waited 40 minutes for our table that we had reserved. Drinks came after a good 30 minutes after we were seated. Had to ask REPEATEDLY for everything from a glass of water,... More
