Review of the Hotel, not just the restaurant. We came into Maine on Thursday, not knowing where we were going to stay.

You can't beat the location of Stone's Throw, literally a "stone's throw from popular York Beach. Sitting on the deck out front and watching the passersby is a terrific pastime. Food here is good, definitely a notch better than typical beach food washed down with alcohol. They have a good choice of beers. Locals come here and late in the... More

A fantastic hotel with majestic ocean views at sunrise and sunset. The beach is across the street and a great restaurant is on the first level.

Very clean, nicely decorated minimalist style, wonderful service, great views and best of all the food was top notch. Highly recommend. Don't miss the great view of the beach while you eat a terrific meal on the patio sitting next to neat propane outdoor heaters. Doesn't get any better.

Can't find the hotel on TA site, only restaurant, but I'll review hotel here. First, this place isn't "posh", but we booked it because my daughter requested a hotel on the beach -- and that it was. This hotel looks very basic, quaint, beachy Maine, but we enjoyed it. The rooms are basic, but they do the job. There is... More

This is a fun place to go for a drink or food while at Long Sand Beach York, ME. We usually go there at night for drinks. Sitting across the street from the beach and Atlantic Ocean, it is a great place to lounge and have fun with friends. They have a wonderful outside sitting area for good weather as... More

Love this restaurant for the outside seating directly across from Long Sands. My lobster roll was outstanding; I love that it comes with butter instead of mayo (tho mayo is an option). Service was quick, staff was friendly.

Neat little spot on York Beach. Here you can get a lobster roll with butter rather than the usual mayonnaise. The haddock sandwich was cooked to perfection and it really is haddock! The wait staff is friendly but a bit slow for 1/2 dozen tables. After dinner you can cross the street and walk off your meal on long sands.

Food and drinks are good. Small but big enough for the local crowd. Great breakfast. Lunch/Dinner are good. Walking distance from nearby rental cottages and hotels. Doesn't stay open too late, not too loud either. Friendly staff.
