Land A Burger At Peaks

Peaks Island House makes a great hamburger. It tastes just like it came straight off your own grill. The cole slaw is good as well and they have a full bar. From there you can see across Casco Bay to downtown Portland, Maine. It's only a 5 minutes walk from the ferry.

After a relaxing ferry ride over to the island and a couple of hours wading on the beach and collecting seashells and seaglass, we were starving! There are a few restaurants to choose from on the island and we picked this one randomly. The hostess offered us a menu to look over before we chose. We were seated on a... More

This was my first time to Peaks Island and tried to get into another restaurant but the line was too long. We traveled down the street to Peaks Island House and waited another 20 minutes to get seated. It was a very busy weekend but we were ok with the wait (Memorial Day Weekend). Prior to seating us we tried... More

We're new owners on the island and looked forward to having another choice for lunch on Peaks, so headed to Peaks Island House for a Memorial Day Burger. The burgers were cooked well with fresh lettuce and tomatoes and great bun. The G & T was a healthy pour and you really can't beat the view! It'll be nice having... More

Average and standard Portland restaurant food. Nothing breathtaking. I had the buffalo chicken salad which was fine. Nothing about here stood out as being better than the lower tier places in Portland, it just happens to be on Peaks.

My husband and I stopped for lunch during our visit to Peaks Island as this was the day after Labor day and it was the only one open. The location is very nice with a beautiful ocean view. The service staff was very pleasant and helpful. As for the food, we waited for over 30 minutes and there were only... More

Quiet spot on Casio bay. Down the street from the ferry, quiet, on the water, outside dining. The onion rings are decadent, we kept it simple with shrimp cocktail and sandwiches. Icy cold beers, nice people, just lovely. No reason to dress up, it's not necessary. We lunched there all week. FUN!

Loved the ferry ride to Peaks Island. Lunch was very good and the view outstanding sitting on the deck. Staff members were friendly and helpful when deciding what to order. This is a must do while in Portland, ME

Stopped in after getting off the ferry for drinks. Not a large selection of draft beers but they did have a few local microbrews and some more craft beers in bottles as well as old standards. The fried jumbo shrimp we also had were HUGE and wonderful. While we were early, the deck would be a great place to watch... More

There's no better sunset than the one you get from the deck of this restaurant. It drew us in 3 years ago, and has become our special MUST HAVE place to go each year. Somehow we end up going on trivia night, and end up in last place each time too, so that's also become part of our tradition. The... More
