We have never had a bad meal here! One of our favorite places. On our last visit for which we had reservations, we were told to pick any table we liked so chose one on the porch and were all settled when told we had to move as they had reserved that table. Service was less than desirable. The waitress... More

This restaurant near Higgins Beach appears casual and unassuming so we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. It was very close to our rental so we had a chance to eat there several times. The seafood risotto was full of seafood and was wonderfully creamy and delicious. Another seafood pasta dish was also very good. We also... More

We stayed at a house down the street and ate breakfast here both days. The owners are so lovely and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is the best part- a perfect Maine Inn! Don't forget to say hi to Cash (the owners sweet golden retriever!).

Ate at Garofalo's on 7/3/14. This was our 4th time at this restaurant and have had better experiences. Waitress was great and the chowder was excellent. My calamari was fantastic but then the issues. They served my wife her risotto (outstanding) but they brought me the wrong meal. I was told they were sorry and it would be about 5... More

Had a chance to have both dinner and breakfast here. It's pre-season, so staff is still being trained and a bit slow, but the food is fantastic. The lobster eggs Benedict was the best lobster dish I had on this visit to Maine.

Stopped by this restaurant two weeks ago on a business dinner and was very pleased with the food, wonderful atmosphere and great service. Had a wonderful calamari appetizer with a hint of onion, wine and vinegar which was tender, flavorful and simple fabulous. I then had the seafood Seafood Pasta Aglio e Oilo with hand-made pasta that was just perfect.... More

The inn itself is very quaint. They have a number of alcoves for guests to hang at, or eat dinner. The bar is small, but adequate - they were serving free cheese & crackers and other munchies. The main dining room was pleasant - a large square, well decorated to go with the inn. We sat in the back and... More

We rented a house down the street from this inn, and walked over for brunch. The first time, I had the lobster eggs benedict (picture), which was a highlight. The eggs were poached perfectly and the lobster meat was a great twist on the classic brunch dish. The second time, I ordered the italian scramble which was rather bland and... More

We have come here for the last time. We first called for a reservation. They said they actually dont take reservations but they could put our name on the list. We arrived and checked in and was told it was a half hour wait. So we grabbed a drink at the bar. An hour later, we asked a rude and... More

We had brunch here as part of a wedding celebration, and whereas the restaurant was nice and cozy; the food was plain, unimaginative, and boring. The staff served scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, roasted potatoes, and an assortment of breads. The potatoes were cold and/or not fully cooked. The English muffins were over-toasted and hard. The coffee was just... More
