Relaxing Dining With Good Food

The dining room was light and airy with pleasant and accommodating staff. Food was satisfying, promptly served and reasonably priced.

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

We were here on a day trip and opted to have lunch here on a hot day. We sat by the windows overlooking the harbor and the breezes were as wonderful as the food. Had met Martha, the chef, earlier on her day off. Wow. She's doing a great job! There are a couple of other choices in the village...pizza,... More

There are essentially two rooms serving dinner on Monhegan Island, of which the Island Inn is the more expensive and old-fashioned (Monhegan House is the other, with a bow to slightly more creative cuisine). As you'd expect for an island 12 miles out in the Atlantic, prices are slightly higher than on the mainland. Food is good, but heavy in... More

Wonderful ambience, good food in the middle of the island. Just what you'd expect. Pleasant staff, beautiful facility. We had a great lunch there. Only draw back is that it is the first thing you see when you get off the boat and you can't get an ale there. No big deal. You can hike over to the Island brewery.... More

The Island Inn restaurant is a perfect place for a light lunch when exploring Monhegan. I've never been disappointed by the food or the service. I've eaten many a lobster roll, for example, but this one is especially good with its mayonnaise buttermilk dressing. Meals are served quickly, and the wait staff is well trained. The views of the harbor... More

Only a few choices for staying overnight on Monhegan Island. The Island Inn is very close to the ferry dock, easy to find, comfy and a bit time worn. But that is part of the charm of staying here. We had a room with a water view and private bath and that is well worth the extra money especially if... More

We had lunch here, as we were waiting for the return ferry to Boothbay. It was rustic with great views and the food was good. We had a lobster roll and thought it was at least as good as many others we had on this trip, and there was a great chilled blueberry soup as an appetizer. It is a... More
