Great food, great service, wonderful atmosphere! The food was delicious and plentiful, and the service was impeccable from start to finish. The inn itself is an antique, beautiful architecture yet comfortable seating. We'll be back!

I was there for a baby shower, the room was lovely, the staff were attentive and did a good job but the food wad terrible. I had a shrimp caesar salad, I got 3 shrimp (one had not been cleaned) rather limp romaine and 2 croutons. The dressing was mediocre. My friend had the strawberry french toast which looked beautiful... More

This Inn is full of history and has a beautiful setting. It is across the street from a gorgeous park that includes a Cliff Walk along the rocky coast. You can hear the ocean even from a room in the back of the Inn. I was totally surprised this old Inn was so sound proof. The rooms seemed close together... More

Went to the "cellar pub" with a friend for a girls night catch up. The food was delish and snicker doodle coffee by the fire was relaxing . .. Karen " the fire guru extraordinaire " kept the finicky fire stoked .It was appreciated by all on this rainy and chilly night.

G-Ma, Ma, and me have been coming up the coast a lot lately and decided to stop in here. Food was good and the service too. It's a nice atmosphere, maneuverability was slightly tough as they both have canes but the food and service along with the view is so nice.

We were taken there by two full-time locals, and thought it was a wonderful place. The downstairs pub is built to look and feel like a ship and was quite warm and comfortable. The dinner was excellent off the 'prix fix' menu. Local beers available.

The York Harbor Inn, is a definite find! My wife has stayed there many times over the years but this was my first visit and everything was just as she had said - great. They can't do enough for you and go out of the way to make you feel at home. The restaurant is a culinary delight and a... More

Great Seafood! Terrific atmosphere, good service, nice views, but....You'd better have a reservation on weekends or you'll have a long wait! We had a reservation but opted to arrive early for sunset and visited there awesome bar downstairs! Reminded us of an old schooner boat - excellent drinks and service! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

The atmosphere here is fabulous. We meant to eat at the pub, but came to the upstairs entrance first, so that's where we ended up! Our waiter, Dave, really made our night. He was training someone and obviously had a long history with the restaurant. The beer selection was extensive and at Dave's suggestion one was chosen and was fantastic.... More
