The Island Inn restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had breakfast and dinner there two days during our stay at the Island Inn. The breakfast menu featured a great array of buffet food, both hot and cold and made several items to order such as eggs and pancakes. The dinners were scrumptious. I highly recommend the brandy...

As we exited the ferry and walked up the dock to the town of Monhegan, there was no way of knowing that the huge three story clapboard Island Inn would hold the most amazing dinner of my life! Arriving without reservation our maitre'd/waiter found us a table after just a short wait. Having been told to bring out own beverage... More

The Island Inn restaurant on Mohegan Island is first class. It is easily the nicest place for lunch or dinner of the island. We stopped in for a light lunch on a recent day trip. My wife enjoyed their chowder while I had an excellent pan-fried haddock sandwich. This is a great place to visit for a break from hiking,... More

We had dinner with friends at the Island Inn and it was relaxing, unrushed, delicious and full of art - what more could you ask for ? I chose the beet with goat cheese starter and a pasta dish with lobster for the entree. A friend suggested we try the blueberry soup, a tasty dessert...it was.

We stayed at the Inn for a few days and enjoyed breakfast there as well as dinner! The appetizers were all wonderful and the pasta and lobster were to die for! Go, enjoy!

My wife and I ate lunch at the Island Inn just yesterday. The wait staff seemed short-handed, but they were doing their best. The dining room was attractive and comfortable. The only real problem was the lobster roll, which was almost inedible as it was much too salty! As a Mainer I've had plenty of lobster rolls, and I have... More

The Island Inn serves very good food with wonderful views all around. The chef is equally adept serving lobster or a grilled steak (to perfection). Service was quite good. The breakfast was a modified buffet with the choice of freshly scrambled eggs or blueberry pancakes. For dinner, keep in mind, alcohol is not available for purchase in the restaurant. However,...

We stayed at a local B&B and had dinner at the Island Inn every night of our three- night stay because all four of us loved it so much! The first two nights we had a top notch waiter. The chef prepared everything to our liking. The salmon and pork tenderloins were our favorites along with the fresh vegetables.. There... More
