Ate the Sunday special, with lobster, seafood chowder, mussels, corn and baked potato for $20 or so. I would have been happy to pay more and get higher quality food; the chowder and mussels were good but the lobster was not good quality nor was the corn and potato. The server was sweet but slow; I think she had too... More

We had dinner. I had the seafood chowder and the haddock, both listed as signature dishes and both outstanding. My wife had Lobster Cakes, another signature dish, like crab cakes but made with lobster. Again superb, tasty and loaded with lobster meat. Excellent service as well.

The food was excellent but they are a little pricey. We would go back though as it was very good. The service is excellent and they offer nightly entertainment in the summer. We had a lovely pianist and this added a nice touch to our meal.

This is an old inn restaurant with all of the charm you might imagine. We had a nice table by the window with a view of the river and boats. We had called since we were running late for our reservation. The hostess, apparently, did not receive our message but was cordial and charming in seating us. There are many... More

I stay at the Nonantum for a week each summer and have quit looking for places to eat dinner. The variety of the menu, along with the quality of the food, enable me to eat at 95 Ocean every night. The service is great, with friendly and helpful staff.

My wife and I went on Thursday evening.......the night that 95 Ocean features a wine-paired 3 course dinner......we were very pleased! Scallop chowder with pancetta was full of scallops, potato and pancetta and was seasoned beautifully; the beef wellington was good, but overdone.....we had requested medium rare, but that didn't happen; however the meat was tasty and tender, the filling...

I don't think I have ever had such different quality from appetizer to main course. We were staying at the Inn and we were told of the acclaim their chef had received.

Sadly I picked the resort and dinner at the 95 Ocean. It was our last day of our vacation and this was to be the grand finale of our trip with the resort and dinner. It ended up being unpleasant. Food wasn't what I was expecting. I expected a bit more fine dining. We set at a patio table with... More
