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

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
