Good way to start the day

We had breakfast there a few mornings and it was very good, although the second morning I had to ask for the butter pecan syrup that was supposed to already be on my French toast. Brought me a generous cup of it and it was wonderful! Sitting out on the porch overlooking the ocean was a real treat!

We have always enjoyed Sea Glass in the past, but our recent visit was highlighted by mediocre food, dirty windows and flies on and around our food. We will not return!

Where do I begin to describe the disaster of a meal we had on a recent Monday night. We were excited to enjoy an evening enjoying the Inn’s beautiful setting, but unfortunately the fog rolled in, so there was no view. That certainly wasn’t in the Inn’s control, but the rest of the evening was, and they disappointed at every... More

where do i begin, dirty bathrooms, overflowing trash cans, paper on the floor, no towels, long wait for drinks, long wait for any service, nobody offering water refills, or any other beverages, had to ask for our waiter after a while, because he was no where to be seen. Restaurant was not busy. 3 out of 5 dishes where served... More

Hello Tmp321, Again, my apologies that you had a less than favorable experience with us. As we discussed, your experience was a culmination of bad timing and unfortunate missteps, and is certainly not an accurate reflection of a typical Sea Glass experience. I fully appreciate the feedback you provided, and hope to see you in the future for a more... More

Dining either inside or on the outside deck is a great experience. Great food selection served by friendly and energetic staff makes for a lovely breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I had a fun and leisurely lunch that started with Prosecco, applewood smoked pepperoni, and aged vermont cheddar. Then I thoroughly enjoyed a very good salad with grilled chicken. I topped it off with chocolate cake. We all sat outside looking out to the ocean and the service was pleasant and accommodating. The others had the grilled natural burger which... More

I ate here recently with a friend during the week, it was rainy outside and the restaurant was quiet. The service was great and food was ideal. We had fish tacos and crab cakes both the meals were delicious. We had a Portuguese wine which went perfectly with the fish. We had a great lunch and would go again.

Went for breakfast, excellent! Beautiful views, delicious food, great service, fair prices. Would've dined here more, if not for all of the incredible options in Cape Elizabeth and Portland.

We were here for a private function in a separate room but we ordered and were served off the main dining room menu. The menu selections were ample with plenty of seafood dishes to choose from. Service was a little on the slow side but we were a large group. The wine list is very good. Several family members ordered... More
