We ate here because we were staying at the Inn. We originally purchased a package with the meal, but it had several limits, and to make it even worth it, we would have had to order meals that we were not interested in and eat dessert which we did not want. The desk credited us so that we could order... More

We were seated immediately for our 6 PM reservations by a friendly host. We both ordered petit size Cesar salads with house made dressing which were very good. My wife ordered the swordfish over polenta with a glass of pinot grigio and I ordered the lobster stuffed chicken breast with jasmine rice and asparagus and a glass of Riesling. Both... More

Last weekend we enjoyed the York area and decided to stop, on our way to our accommodations at The ViewPoint, for dinner at "1637" in the York Harbor Inn. We had been there several years ago and we were delighted that it was just as we remembered. The atmosphere is quiet and almost "old world", the service was excellent and... More

This is a really wonderful restaurant. If you are looking for an ocean-inspired meal, go here. The service is great and the views during the late afternoon are something I'll always remember.

I love this beautifully appointed Inn. It is truly the most charming, quaint yet sophisticated spot in southern Maine. Although I was just passing through on thanksgiving weekend. I had to make time to pop in. The fireplace was roaring and decorated for Christmas complete with an old fashioned sled with a bough of pine strewn over it. I popped... More

This was our first time here and it is a very special place. We walked around the inn grounds before our Thanksgiving Buffet reservation and soaked in the beauty of the area. We made our reservations way back in September and so glad that we did so that we could get the ocean view from the main dining room. The... More
