Great food, lovely view.

Our first time eating here and we were very impressed. The food was great and the staff were pleasant and attentive. Best dining experience we had in Ogunquit area. The view and the lightening storm really added to the atmosphere. One criticism. To finish our meal we ordered Irish and Bailey's... read more

If my wife says it was the best food and service that we have seen so far on this vacation the this deserves a 5 rating. David our waiter and the service staff were very attentive. The chowder was very good and some of the best I've had in Maine. Our entree's of salmon and lobster mac and cheese had... More

I had last eaten here about 2 years ago and had had a less than satisfying experience (noisy dining room and food that was nothing remarkable) so I said I'd not likely return, but since we were going to the theater in Ogunquit last night, we decided to give it another try. While I'm happy to report that the noise... More

We went out of our way to have lunch at MC Perkins Cove after a recommendation from a friend. Although he had never been to MC Perkins Cove, he was familiar and a big fan of the owners' previous restaurant. I ordered the clam chowder which looked like it had top quality ingredients, but it tasted quite bland and boring... More

This place can't be beat for the view or the helpful staff. The suggestions on wine and side dishes were spot on and the waiter accommodated a request to share dishes. Don't miss the green bean salad!

My husband and I had been encouraged to try this restaurant a number of years ago. We went with high expectations and were delighted with the views, but were appalled by the cavalier, disinterested service from a snooty hostess to the laid back, jeans clad waiter. The music was loud and raucous, not at all what I consider accompaniment for... More

Ogunquit and the Perkins Cove area is charming. Lot's of touristy shops and wonderful views of the water. MC is a great oasis with creative dishes. Mark & Clark are the owners of the acclaimed Arrows Restaurant also in Ogunquit. They deliver the fine food options and creativity to this casual restaurant. Overall good experience.

I had gone earlier in the year and had their superb pork tacos along with an amazing ocean view. This time, I wanted to repeat the Taco experience, but unfortunately, the Chefs had removed this item from their small but magnificent menu.

What a poetic review, Monique! It's fantastic to hear how much you enjoyed that chicken salad. There's something about a well-balanced salad that really hits the spot, don't you think?

I've been to MC Cove a few times over the last few years. I like it, and I want to love it, but for whatever reason it just never really hits home.
