Fine cuisine + charming = Few SO good

The Crocker House is a wonderful and reliably excellent "tradition" in Down East Maine. Each of the dining rooms is small enough to be comfortably cozy whether you are out to dine as a couple or you need one of the rooms for a private party. Reservations are a must.

Thank you for your very kind review, Arthur! We appreciate your mentioning that the restaurant quality is consistent. Our menu hasn't varied much over the years because most of our guests seem to like knowing they can return to the Inn, order the same entree and that it will be just as they remembered. Thank you for making The Crocker... More

Oh dear... so glad you thought the food was "great" but terribly sorry to hear you felt our service was "terrible"! Catered dinners such as the one you attended are quite unique. Entrees are pre-ordered and consequently, a wait person (plus the bartender, if necessary) is able to serve the dinners as quickly as they are plated in the kitchen.... More

Dining perfection! This is way off the beaten path but worth the time and price of food. Serve staff is amazing - really not enough great things to say :)

Thank you, Kevin! The Crocker House is indeed "way off the beaten path" (almost 5 miles down the Point Road). So glad you felt it was worth the time and the price.Thank you for helping us launch our 36th season in business. Best wishes. More

I loved the oyster appetizer. My choice of entree was not the best choice for me. The steaks and salmon ordered by others in our party were excellent with a lovely chocolate mousse cake topped with whipped cream for dessert. Yummy!

The food and service here is outstanding. Tim and Shannon took wonderful care of our party and accommodated all requests with a smile.

We have been going to The Crocker House on a regular basis now for several summers and we have never been disappointed. Both the food and the service is excellent. I can't say I have a favorite dish since everything I have had there has been great. Make it a point to drive to this out of the way spot... More

Who would think in the middle of nowhere one would find this gem. We have heard of this place for years and finally made it over. We were not disappointed. My duck was delicious and the dishes of the other 3 people with me were excellent they said too. A bit surprised of the short menu but we found something... More

This place is the coziest place I have ever been too!! The food is amazing. The staff is amazing, and the ride there is amazing. Thanksgiving Dinner was the most spectacular event. The portions are fit for a king!

If you are tired of lobster-in-the-rough and family style restaurants, which constitute the vast majority of your choices in down-east Maine, then a bit of gracious dining at the Crocker House might be just what is needed. It's a lovely dining room and the service is friendly and gracious. The food may not compete with big city establishments, but our... More

great food, wonderful service, beautiful location. Went with friends, and my friends had the scallops and the veal.... I had the Seafood Pasta, I cannot go there and not have the seafood Pasta. It is magnificent... My friends loved their dinner also, gourmet food hidden away on Hancock Point, Maine...
