We were drawn to this on Tuesday early evenings this summer because of the great jazz trio that played on the porch. We were here 4 Tuesday evenings and it was a ball. The trio is fabulous and makes for a special evening outside on the porch of this old Inn in the middle of Castine. We dined on the... More

Based on the reviews and the location in an old Inn we had hoped for much more of a fine dining experience. The staff was friendly and attentive and the service was timely. The menu was interesting with a few specials. We started off on the wrong foot when we tried to order drinks. The first wine we asked for... More

Julie fit us in the night we arrived without reservations. The food and service were great. We were bikers and she made us feel comfortable. Thanks Julie!

Dinner was overpriced, but the worst part was the service. Even with a reservation, the service was slow. The waitress didn't understand our requests and twice had to go back to the kitchen to request an entree that was forgotten. Even with the extra wait and the forgotten meals, it didn't seem that they tried to make up for the... More

A warm greeting by the owner greeted us as we came in. We had booked another B&B in Castine to stay at, and boy, were we ever sorry. This is the place! Wine tastings on Thursday---in a bar plastered with photos of famous and infamous dictators. Very charming and clever. Food and service were tops. We'll definitely be back. (That... More

While sailing Penobscot Bay, we enjoyed a delightful stay ashore at the Pentagoet Inn in Castine, Maine. A close friend who had often stayed there when he was out sailing the bay, had highly recommended to us. As it was our 25th wedding anniversary, we were looking to treat ourselves and certainly did that with our stay in the beautifully... More

Arriving in three sloops and one pick-up, our crew of twelve found delight in dining at the Pentagoet. We were welcomed to Castine with a morning call to confirm the reservations for 12 made several weeks in advance. The evening began, as usual, in the pub, where we mingled with new and old friends over favorite cocktails, negronis, mojitos, and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pentagoet Inn and made dinner reservations at the time we booked the room. As we checked in we could see the dining room which was relatively large but also warm and inviting. We also noticed some small tables for two on the porch. We asked to be seated there and the waitress promptly... More

The lamb chops were outstanding, cooked to a perfect medium-rare. The mussels were fantastic, and the lobster and corn chowder was an excellent starter. Service was superb and the inn's owners are always a pleasure to deal with. Clearly one of the finest restaurants in Maine. I don't even wince at the thought of dropping $100 on a meal there.

my wife and I just returned home after a great weekend in Castine. The Pentagoet Inn should be at the top of your list while visiting this quaint village. Staff and owners were very accommodating and the restaurant and bar live up to their reputation. it's a great base to stay while visiting the area. we will return.
