very quaint Inn. Small food portions, excellent dining. Wonderful entrees, salads and deserts. Not a place to order steak though. Would be great if they could actually grill their meats - pork, beef, chicken, etc. Great vintage bar and cocktails.

This is a truly lovely place to eat (and stay). The restaurant, bar, and hotel are beautifully decorated and the staff is superior. The atmosphere in the dining room was quiet, but friendly, and the food was excellent. We came to Maine from Texas for good seafood and to see the Hermione. Neither disappointed.

We ate 3 dinners there. Best food in Castine. Small cozy town. Wonderful high quality food - fish, steak, lamb. Warm and friendly service. Delightful experience!

We enjoyed a delicious meal here and wished it had been warm enough to dine on the porch. Our meal started with a cocktail and we all had seafood of some type. I had the crab cakes made from crab locally sourced from Stonington, Maine. They were delicious! The dessert was the only slight disappointment. I had the blueberry crisp... More

The food is always so beautifully prepared and dripping with the flavors of the season. We have yet to be disappointed and are usually wowed with the experience. The wine list is perfect as well.

We visited Castine to see the Hermione and after a long afternoon waiting to view the vessel, we went to the inn for a respite. We had a refreshing cocktail that washed away our tiredness and sat down to a surprising good dinner. The fish was fresh and well prepared and the blueberry dessert was very tasty. The staff was...

Beautiful Maine Coastline but all we could talk about was the food at the Pentagoet Inn. Delicious dinner. Wonderful menu and excellent service. Perefection from appetizer to dessert My halibut was delicious and my husbands short ribs were also delicious. It is a real pleasure to recommend the restaurant at Pentagoet. We will be back

Our family has a tradition of spending every July 4th in Castine and we always stay and have dinner at the Pentagoet Inn. Julie and Jack are charming hosts and we always look forward to catching up and having dinner in the restaurant. The food is always excellent, but this year the food is the best we've had in all...

Delicious food from breakfast til fine dining. Old world elegance, great service, and drop dead delicious cookies and tea for afternoon snack. Location, location and tender loving care to all the details. Don't miss cocktails in the lounge and fascinating pictures of world leaders. Bravissimo!
