Located in Perkins Cove, this restaurant has some of the best cooking in the area. Seafood is done really well however, it comes at a steep price.

We enjoyed a late lunch at M. C. Perkins Cove. We had the Shrimp Cktl, Steamed Mussels, and Salmon. All were very tasty. Parking is difficult.

You are in for a treat if you go to MC Perkins. The owners/chefs were on TV for their cooking skills. I was pleased to find out they also have a restaurant in Boston, MA.

I cannot fathom any negative reviews do this place. Yes you need reservations but I'd say the prices are right in line with the high quality. We were seated immediately and our waitress was attentive without being overbearing - it was like she had a sixth sense of when we may need something. I had the salmon and my boyfriend... More

Went for lunch. This was our second visit there. We were seated right away and the service was very good. Nice atmosphere, with views of the water from most tables. My wife ordered the chicken salad, which was excellent. MC is on the expensive side, but you can tell that the chef puts a lot of effort into the dishes.

Four of us enjoyed our meal immensely. Service was great and had a beautiful view. Plenty of selections on the menu with additional specials for the evening. It is more expensive but well worth it, especially for a special occasion.

We had dinner for two on Aug 2015. We were able to get a table just one back from the window facing the ocean and the tables are set so we were both able to sit facing the ocean. The view is just lovely. The food was very good. The starters- shrimp cocktail and chowder, were good but not great.... More

We had a great dinner for five during a week at Ogunquit. The meat loaf, trout, and salmon entree's were terrific. The mussel and flat bread appetizers were great and salads were outstanding. The service was attentive.
