The lamb shank is exquisite and the cod special... More

Portion was adequate, but not large. Enjoyed the fresh fish, strawberry shortcake and delightful lemon poppy seed biscuit.

The atmosphere in the pub is very pleasant, including an amazing collection of photos of famous world leaders and historical figures. The dining is excellent at the Pentagoet, equal to the best Manhattan restaurants but with wonderful Maine local ingredients. A telling aspect of the sophistication of the food experience was the oyster presentation - properly shucked with brine to... More

The food at the Inn was superb. They make good use of fresh local ingredients. I had two appetizers for dinner- crab cakes and roasted oysters. Best I have ever had in a restaurant and we know what fresh seafood is in Maine! Nice attention to detail, loved all the mismatched antique china.

I have eaten at the restaurant several times and always come away impressed by the quality. The menu is varied, takes advantage of local fresh foods and the dishes excellently prepared. The servings are ample and excellently prepared.Easily the best restaurant in town.

This was a nice evening out for my Mom and I. When we arrived we were promptly greeted and shown to our table, we sat in the pub which is cozy and full of unique finds from around the globe (if you don't dine here, definitely come for a drink before hand to enjoy this room!) Our waitress, Jen was... More

Started with the grilled asparagus salad , which was so fresh and had all the right mix of sweet and savory. Entree was the baked cod, which was just flavorful.... More

The Pentagoet Inn in Castine is not only a great place to stay, it's also a great place to dine. Only about an hour from Bangor, it's well worth the drive for a special meal or just because. Last night Paula and I had a wonderful meal at The Pentagoet Inn to celebrates her birthday. From the moment we walked... More

We dined at this historic inn two times during an extended stay in Castine. It is the only "fine dining" option available in this quaint coastal town. I cannot speak broadly to the menu because we ordered the same thing both times: Lobster Linguini (which may no longer be on the menu) and Eggs a la Russe Salad. Nevertheless food... More

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
