As a local, we thought asking an opinion of someone who works in the immediate area about this place would be a safe bet and we were glad we did! Unfortunately, some reviewers are jaded resulting in an inaccurate review. Had I followed the reviews, we wouldn't have tried this place for the first time. As I said, we are... More

The Oakweed Cove was a pleasant restaurant with a fantastic ocean view. We were there for lunch after our walk along the Marginal Way...a must do when in Ogunquit. The service was great and the host and waitress were friendly and informative. We had clam chowder and crab rolls which were delicious. I commented to our waitress that I loved... More

We ate here for lunch, after a walk on the Marginal Way. Good seafood and service. It isn't air-conditioned, and we were there on a very hot day (90), but there were plenty of fans and a great breeze.

We only ate at three of the restaurant in Perkins cove but the Oarweed had the best children's menu of those three. A very good selection, quantity of food and great quality as well as reasonabley priced.

We were told "the best clam chowder in the area" so off we go to oarweed. We do lunch Clam chowder, crab cakes for me and a burger for the hubby. Good clam chowder but the crab cakes were a disappointment. I think they needed a sauce, and a little less filler? I don't know. Had the blueberry pie al... More

We go to the Oarweed once a year after visiting our children in camp in Northern Maine. There is a reason we go back year after year. The food is solid, the service is great and they park the car for free. This year, the lobster was extremely good. The salads and chowders are fine but we will still go... More

I have lunched here several times, but yesterday's visit will be my last. The restaurant, situated at the beginning of the Marginal Way, a scenic walk that follows the coastline, the restaurant offers spectacular water views. Unfortunately, you cannot eat the view. Their lobster roll is a disgrace. The meat, which was dry and not full of fresh lobster flavor,... More

We have eaten there twice in the past week with our family. The first night, our food was okay- salads had a nice portion of lobster and crab meat on top. The lobsters came out hot, so we were happy. The second night the food was not very good- Salmons were dry and tasteless and the lobster rolls had dismal... More

We went to the Oarweed for a nice seafood dinner and we were not disappointed at all. The food and drinks were great, service was good and we sat overlooking the ocean. A good experience all the way around. Great lobster roll, seafood chowder and crab roll as well. We will return here.

Super views at the beginning of the Marginal Way. Better yet, to match the views the food was excellent. Try the potato skins and the house dressing. Both were delicious! In fact, I bought a bottle of the dressing to go!
