Artists, Lobstermen and one fine Inn.

My wife and I traveled to Monhegan Island last fall and stayed at the Island Inn. Our first meal was a spectacular buffet breakfast featuring lobster scrambled eggs. Every other meal was a delight, seafood or whatever, perfectly prepared and served. The view is unbelievable (see pix) The stay and... read more

Excellent food and reasonable prices in a lovely old hotel overlooking the harbor. Granted there are not many choices for dining on Monhegan Island, but you can't go wrong with this one. We were there in the early fall when things are starting to get quiet ... do call to make a reservation.

Great room, friendly staff and wonderful food. We are looking forward to going back again. A days hike around the island we sat back on the Inn's deck watching the boats and the seagulls. Very relaxing.

Apparently some people can never be satisfied and go through life being miserable...Yes I am talking about the reviewer "greenladybourne", Maybe the Island Inn should have paid this self-proclaimed "lady" for the honor of gracing them with her presence? Probably not enough... Monhegan will never be for everyone's taste (and it's a very very good thing!). For those of us... More

We had dinner at the Island Inn - the scallops were the best I've had. The blueberry pie was perfect. The view is sublime. The staff was attentive and courteous. Breakfast was awesome - buffet style with a wide variety. Please be kind to the staff - they spend their entire summer on the Island and work under trying circumstances.... More

This was the greatest of trips for me to the Island Inn. It is a get-away that anyone visiting New England or anyone living in New England should experience! So quiet and peaceful and the hiking was fantastic! Worth the trip!

My husband and I came here for the (help yourself) breakfast buffet. We thought for the $18pp + tax, telling the waitress to keep the change on $40 fair enough since all she did was pour the coffee. But apparently not as she then went and complained to the host who chased after us asking for more of a tip!... More

After a morning of hiking in rain and fog we were ready to sit indoors for lunch. Island Inn is one of the few places on the island that offers sit down table service. If I read the info correctly it only offers lunch Thurs. - Sun. in July & August. We enjoyed a hummus appetizer shared between 3 was... More

We visited Monhegan Island last weekend and The Island Inn is the place to stay on the island. The staff is courteous and helpful and hence the service was excellent. They have a nice dining room and lovely view of the sun setting. Food was pricey but it was great so I wouldn’t mind paying a bit more. The blueberry... More
