Surprisingly good!

We had lunch here a few weeks ago. We are on the deck overlooking the water. I had the cheeseburger with bacon which was rather tasty and the fries were perfectly cooked. My wife had the Reuben which was also very good, and she was pleasantly surprised as well. My son had the chicken tender... read more

We went to Peaks Island on a beautiful Sunday to take a walk on this treasure located in Casco Bay. When we arrived on the island, we went to the Peaks Island House for a late lunch. We were not disappointed. The service was a little slow, but the great view and the fantastic meal that we enjoyed made it... More

Spent the day on the island with my family hoping to end it with a good meal. I wasn't so lucky, the food was below average at best. Who the heck sautes canned mushrooms with onions for a burger( a fatty pre-made burger mind you)? If you've got a lot of free time to kill and want food that's ehh......then... More

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!
