Better choices avaliable.

Been on and off customer since the beginning. Owners have always seemed ambivalent. Kitchen is a mad house during busy times, so food is slow and has become difficult to eat as time has gone by. So I stopped. You may love it. Fireplace room is quite the eye candy and the ocean view seating can... read more

Super Bowl Sunday in chilly Maine. I had not been to the Whales Tooth in almost three years. It is still a wonderful place to dine. We got there just before the super bowl started. There were two large TV's to see the game. Unless you want to view the great West Penobscot Bay, request a table by the huge... More

This place is terrific! Front room dates back to the late 1700's with a huge fireplace and lots of charm. Back room has outstanding waterfront views. This is one of two places in Maine where I've enjoyed ice-cold Manhattans made to perfection! And the food is very, very good too. Whatever season we've visited (we've visited this part of Maine...

We snuggled into one of their booths for some chowder and a drink. It warmed our souls and spirit after a cold afternoon. Love their heavy entry curtain at the entrance that keeps out the cold and cloaks over the place.

Four if us went here for dinner, and got the table by the huge old fireplace! It was much cozier than the front dining room, which during daylight has great views. Our server was great. My scallops were over cooked, but had decent flavor. The homemade coleslaw was delicious, and the house made potato chips were light and crispy- better... More

Sat out on the deck here looking at the ocean and reading a book while waiting on my wife checking all the local craft shops on the main street. Was there in between lunch and dinner but they managed to rustle up some chicken wings.

We have often driven by this restaurant and finally decided to go for dinner on a Sunday evening. There appeared to be a private party going on upon entry in side room and finally an older woman ushered us to a corner booth and noticed something with a nearby table with the busboy: she slammed our menus down on the...

We stopped in to have a mid-afternoon snack after a great visit to Cellardoor Winery. The place was pretty empty but they were staffed up for a busy night so no lack of service. We had a great bowl of their Seafood Chowder and then shared the special appetizer which was homemade Crab Rangoons. They were chocked full of fresh... More

Happened upon this lovely seaside pub at the peak of a Nor'easter that left 10+ inches of snow on November 2nd. We were driving through town, white-knuckled, slipping and sliding in blinding snowbursts, when it was clear we couldn't go in either direction due to downed trees and power lines. But there was a light on in the distance- at... More
