Enjoyably Located Next to Marginal Way for a Delightful Atlantic Ocean View

We were sightseeing around Southern Maine, between York Beach and Ogunquit, and decided to stop at the Perkins Cove-located Oarweed Restaurant for lunch. Since it was only our 2nd day in Maine, my husband was craving some real Maine lobster. It was a cold, Saturday afternoon, so we ordered first... read more

My husband and I have been to Oarweed twice a year ,when visiting Maine. Always a highlight of our stay. This last time(Sept. 2014) will be our last. First we were told to sit anywhere,then we were asked to move,because table was being saved for someone. As we were getting ready to leave, our waitress came up to my husband... More

I've eaten at all the Perkins Cove restaurants and I love them all...but I want to give a shout out for my favorite. Something about the simple Maine atmosphere and location at the start of the Marginal Way makes me crazy for this place. Steamers and lobster done perfectly every time..at a reasonable price. Servers are always friendly and attentive.... More

We had dinner here on October 12 with another couple. My husband and I had eaten a quick bowl of chowder here after walking the marginal way back in July so we decided to try it again for a full meal. 3 out of the 4 meals were disappointing. My husband ordered one of the specials which was a scallop... More

We had a delicious meal of crab cakes and breaded scallops. And a wonderful Margarita. The view out all the windows is spectacular, and we walked off the large portions by taking the Marginal Way for a bit...

This was our first experience eating both lobster and clams! The prices were reasonable, and the food was absolutely excellent!! Our waitress was fun and very helpful in giving us tips as "first-timers". Great view of the ocean too!

My wife and I enjoyed a great lunch at Oarweed. We both had the lobster roll and seafood chowder special. The bloody Mary's were very good. The service was very good as well. Overall a very good experience.

Nice view, nice place, nice staff and the food was I'm sure the finest that Sysco foods has to offer.

We come and eat here annually on vacation. Love the fresh seafood and rustic feel of this restaurant. Had the Lobster "no-shell" a full lobster taken from its shell and cooked with butter and cracker crumbs. It was delicious as always. The twice baked potato was a good accompanyment. Restaurant has beer,wine and a full bar.

I've been to Oarweed many times in the past, but with a 9-year gap, I couldn't resist trying it again on my all-too-brief sojourn to Ogunquit. I wasn't disappointed either. My daughter and I sat outside with a view of the comings and goings on Marginal Way. My lobster roll was incredibly fresh with almost nothing added to it, and... More
