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.

I enjoyed the Cliff House restaurant for dinner last evening with a friend. She had the lobster bisque while I had the onion soup. We shared an order of blue mussels and then shared an order of baked scallops. The food was excellent. The view is unsurpassed. The atmosphere is lovely. The prices were within reason; however, the wine was... More

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

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.
