The food (fried clams and clam chowder) were good, but for $33 just for those two items we would have expected a meal that rocked our world and leaving me craving to return. Being right on the main street, you're certainly going to see alot of foot and vehicle traffic so don't expect a quiet meal if sitting on the... More

Stopped in with a recommendation from the trolley driver. I had the lobster salad and my boyfriend the lobster roll. Both delicious and hearty portions. A little bite of fudge sample was just the amount of sweetness we needed for dessert and the wait staff was extremely friendly. A bit pricey at $40 for two people for lunch but for... More

I wanted an ice cream, as I continually saw people walking around with one and it was a nice hot sunny day. I realized I didn't have any cash on me. I was on vacation, didn't want to drive to a bank and pay an ATM fee (I was on vacation), so I thought someone must take a debit card.... More

So we bypassed the Cornerstone because we didn't want pizza (you can get pizza anywhere we thought)--we wanted a Maine lunch. My husband ordered the lobster bisque. The worst excuse for lobster bisque in our experience. So paste-like in thickness and tasting strongly of Old Bay and cayenne without any heat or seafood flavor. The fried haddock dinner was fine,...

Wife and I were out walking the streets of Ogunquit. Wanted a nice lunch but not in a fancy expensive place. We came upon the Rose Cove Café. The young lady was handing out fudge on the street to attract customers- good idea- we came in. We wanted some fish & chips with a beer. The Café doesn’t serve liquor,... More

After every other restaurant on Rt. 1 from the NH border was closed, we stumbled on Rose Cove. Yummy food, sweet atmosphere and clearly where the locals go. At 8pm on a Tuesday off season we were just hoping for a few take out burgers, but were pleasantly surprised with the full menu offered and kind service. While waiting for... More

We stopped in the rise cove cafe because there was a sign in the window for fish and chips, which I hadn't had a decent fish n chips in years - it was a very large portion of excellent food that did not disappoint! However, the lobster bisque that we got for a starter was the best lobster bisque that... More

Been here in the past many times with my husband and daughter. It has changed through the years but still offers excellent coffee and desserts though I must admit that I've seen some of their desserts layed out for a few days and we all know what happens it its freshness. It is however, a great spot to sit for... More

This place is a not-to-be missed spot with a great location for people watching in the warm weather months. Don't forget to try their killer fudge!

We try to get to Ogunquit 1 or 2 times yearly as it is a wonderful place close to Boston for a 2 or 3 nite get away....We of course have our favorites, but surprisingly we had not been to this very cute, very quaint restaurant....What drew us in the door was the offer of tasting free fudge, pumpkin fudge,...
