wanted an outside table and snagged it earlyin the luncheon hour 11:30ish.

Reasonable prices, nice view of the end of Marginal Way, last day of service for season staff was in high gear and happy to serve!

Located in ogunquits Perkins cove, on the shores of the Atlantic is the oarweed. Such a perfect location is hard to beat. It was a hot, cloudless and beautiful day. Sail boats were plying the water on the horizon. It was so nice! The food was awesome We had salmon, clam chowder and haddock. It was. All very, very good.... More

When we arrived for dinner the place was packed. Apparently, this time of year a lot of tour buses come through Ogunquit. Our wait wasn't too long though, and we got a table at the window. The view is really nice of the end of the Marginal Way and Oarweed Cove, which is across from Perkins Cove. The decor is... More

We return to the Oarweed over and over again (always off season) as it is one of our reliable favorites. Though in the middle of tourist laden Perkins Cove it never seems to try to rip the tourists off. Prices may be a bit high, but everything in Ogunquit is and you get such an outstanding view right next to... More

While the crab cakes are not so good, the chowder is really good. The scallops were overcooked, but everything else was good. Really good service and excellent view while you dine. They have affordable options so you don't break the bank, too.

My husband and I were looking for a water view restaurant for our last meal in Ogunquit, we had been to this restaurant in previous years, knew there was free parking, tried it again. We were not disappointed. The view was lovely, the blood moon rose over the water, the weather was warm and there was seating right on the... More

Casual and fun, owner takes pride in this restaurant and welcomes you in. Had the lunch combo, seafood chowder with Lobster roll, served with chips and coleslaw. Although not the largest Lobster roll we had this was very good and offered with butter or mayo. Service with a smile and a little humor made our lunch special. We ate here... More

We had dinner here after looking around the area.The location is superb and the food was OK but not inspiring .The fish (haddock and scallops)were very good- desserts were poor.Service was good.

The ogunquit area has many fine restaurants, this is NOT one of them. I has a tossed salad with house dressing, that was good. I ordered salmon and my wife had the seafood trio. Both meals were seriously over cooked. My salmon was so well done, it had very little flavor left in it. On the other hand, the view... More
