Delicious fresh food, locally sourced. service was was friendly and helpful without being too intrusive. Choice of just 4 or 5 mains or starters is always a good sign as it means the food is being freshly cooked and not just reheated from the freezer. Good choice of reasonably priced wines with dinner. Even if you're not a hotel guest... More

We introduced friends to Castine and the Pentagoet Inn. We all had a delightful stay and an excellent, well-served meal in the inn's dining room. Following a cocktail in the living room we had an excellent dinner in the comfortable dining room. Tables spaced for easy conversation, excellent service, a good menu selection, and attentive service made an enjoyable dining... More

The town of Castine is a very old historic town, and I expected that the restaurants and Inns would be old. However, when we ate at the Pentagoet it felt like a retirement home. Instead of historic pictures of people and the town, the atmosphere was elderly. However, the food was very good!

This was a wonderful dinner with good Castine friends. The service was very attentive and responsive without being overbearing. I had the braised short ribs which were very good but slightly overdone. The corn soup at the entry into the meal was exceptional. My wife had the fish stew which was wonderful. The salad and desert were a very well... More

We ate here one night during a 3 night stay at the Inn. The service was polite, if somewhat less than professional for this type of restaurant. The atmosphere, a nice old Victorian Inn, was quite romantic. The food was acceptable, but was not particularly professional in appearance or cooking. Sauces were excessive and heavy. The pricing was out of... More

The Pentagoet Inn Menu is varied and has something for everyone. I had the roasted beet salad and the halibut and both were done to perfection. The service was excellent and we will return.

You can see my review of our stay at the hotel. The restaurant evidenced the same attention to detail that can be seen throughout the inn. The menu selection creative and interesting. The food prepared beautifully and served in an appealing manner. The ambiance good for a couple or a larger party. We shall return again when the winds blow... More

We had an outstanding dinner at this charming and artistic Maine inn...the Pentagoet. The ambiance at this inn is old world style. You feel as if you are stepping back in time. The menu was delicious. We always try to stop, stay and dine at this delightful historic spot as we wind our way up the coast of Maine. The... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay in this beautiful historic inn (our favorite during our trip to Maine). Our room had a private balcony that overlooked the the main street and harbor. Hoping for an easy, relaxed meal, we ordered a plate of steamed mussels in wine sauce to share with crusty bread and enjoyed our feast... More
