A banal, unfriendly place

There are always a lot of cars here, so I am assuming they have a loyal following, which they would need because they are unfriendly to others. They do not want you to park against the front of the building, which looks like an obvious place, but instead of putting up "no parking" or "please do... read more

Offshore has great food and a great selection, especially seafood which is what out of town visitors want. And I love seafood also.

Offshore serves very good classic food, like prime rib and seafood. The seafood is always fresh and tasty. Great service!

The Offshore Restaurant does not look like much when you step in (just your average family diner - however with great fun decoration), but the food was an absolute surprise! You get your very own little bread on a board (cute, just a perfect size for two and your choice of white or wholegrain). I then ordered seafood sauté with... More

We liked the salad bar which the Maine coast seems to have little of. The service was slow and the waitstaff were too. I'm sure 'fried' would have been good here but do not get the 'broiled'. It has a boiled look and very bland. The place has the comforting look of an established town restaurant but we wouldn't try... More

Closing time was 1/2 hour away, and the place was emptying out. That can be a recipe for a bad experience, but it was not so. 4 diners and 4 very different items. From the "market price" clams, to the sirloin tips, scallops, and lobster pasta, all of our party dug in and enjoyed their meal. Even in lieu of... More

My wife had the shrimp dinner with salad bar. The salad bar was not the best we have ever eaten and her shrimp meat in the tail fell apart in her hands. She told me it was the worst lobster she has had. I had shrimp over rice pilaf, with mushrooms. No one told me the rice pilaf had red... More

We dine at this restaurant everytime we go to Glen Cove. Must try the Lemon Lust Pie. The food is excellent. If you are looking for good food in a casual setting this is your place.
