Fine dining is available in the Main Dining Room serving breakfast and dinner daily. Open Table reservations are available for the Main Dining Room.

We love the food here. Always consistent in its presentation and always delicious. We usually get the duck. Wine is great. Great sitting next to windows at night and watching wildlife visit the property.

Most hotel restaurants are terrible but Cliff House is pleasantly decent. We were there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The steak and haddock are especially good for dinner.

Visited the Cliff House restaurant for our 50th Wedding Anniversary dinner. We chose it because of the awesome view of the rocky shore, expecting an up-market meal commensurate with the status of the place. The view certainly did not disappoint. But that's where it ended. The waitress, while very pleasant, was not knowledgeable about the details of the dishes, and... More

The lobster and crab is delicious. Blueberry pancakes are a must! Accommodations are not plush; however, when the renovations are completed this place will rock!

This is a very large property, spotless and very well maintained which is tough in with the constant sea air and winter storms. Get a map and study it when your first check in. The property is spread out over several large building. The room numbers and floor numbers bear no relation so everyone is wondering around lost all the... More

Look right over the ocean as you eat breakfast - can't get better than that! Service was very good, and the food good, too!

We were disappointed with the food at the Cliff House restaurant. Maybe we ate there too late in the season? The tomato sauce was the same for the Lobster Bisque and the Lobster Macaroni. Overall, not bad, but very expensive for the quality! Service was friendly, but slow. The kitchen crew may have been smaller than usual??

The Maine Coast in all it's beauty was the view from our veranda. Perfect sunny fall weather and a beautiful full moon made it ideal. Lovely clean room and the Spa was excellent as well.

I have been here 3 times and love it. Actually, each time this has been a place that I have brought colleagues on an annual planning retreat - so it has been a work / relax situation. The location cannot be beat - unbelievable. I do think that every room has an ocean view. The food is good / variable.... More
