I've tried Shepherd's Pie twice before. I hear that everyone likes it here, but that's probably because it's one of the only restaurants around the area. I don't like most of the items on the menu, but then, I am very picky. I don't like oysters, and there were two on the menu. Pork belly is not something I'd choose... More

The service was friendly and atmosphere nice but the food was not good. I am not picky at all but I got pork belly and scallop skewers and the sauce thy was on them was so overpowering I didn't finish. The cauliflower also had a overpowering sauce and my boyfriend burger tasted very meaty in a bad way with yet... More

Attractive and interesting menu and the food lived up to the descriptions. But don't go here unless you are willing to be bombarded by loud techno-pop music. Sorry, we won't be back

We have a 2nd home in Owls Head and go to Shepherd's Pie at least 6-8 times a year. It has always been great. However this last time it was not up to its usual standard. The fish was overcooked and dry and the black beans and rice were inedible (two of us at the table ordered the beans and... More

There are creative blends of ingredients that keep your tastebuds constantly surprised and delighted. The Duck PB&J, for instance, and the pork steak, both had a lot going on and it was all good. If you're a beef lover, the rib eye in chimmichurra sauce is not to be missed. There were some puzzling choices in restaurant management; for example,... More

I was here several years ago and it was excellent then. It remains so now. They accommodated a walk in group of 12 people. Service was prompt and accommodating. Senate checks were no issue. Spiced nuts as an appetizer are a must have IMO. Fish and chips were great. If you anywhere near Rockport make the detour, you won't regret... More

Minimalist decor aiming for the trendy ambiance. Waiter poorly informed as to selections; requiring frequent runs to the bar for information. Why is the wine served in water glasses?? Handling the tumbler by the base of glass warms the wine...do they not know that? Do they not know the definition of Caesar Salad?? My alewives caesar salad was a leaf... More

I was visiting Rockport Maine, a small delightful town in coastal Maine. I was part of a party of 12 people. One made a reservation at 5 o'clock. When we arrived, we had to seat at two separate tables because they didn't accommodate together because they wanted to reserve the extra table for additional guests. Obviously this place enjoys the... More

Last fall, after we moved here, we went to Shepherd’s Pie a few times – we always loved the setting and the service, and there’s not much one can say against the food either. But for an almost vegetarian (I eat seafood, but almost never fried – unless it’s calamari, of course ;)), there aren’t a lot of choices here,... More
