We had two wonderful dinners at the Inn, one in the pub and another in the main dining room. Both meals were excellent. The appetizers and the main courses were both excellent. The food was fresh and perfectly seasoned. The service too was excellent. The courses were paced well and after the meal we lingered a bit and did not... More

I've reviewed 50 restaurants of all types and I now have a good understanding of what is average, very good and excellent. For food, presentation and service I would rate York Harbor Inn excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal as did the other three who dined with me and I would definitely go back again.

I dine alone and therefore are usual thrown in a corner which is what happened. I asked if I could sit in the table near the harbor but was told those were reserved. No one sat there while I was dining. I also order a salad with lobster which tasted like they added imitation crab to it to "stretch" it.... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Sunday evening. The host sat us at a table looking out over Harbor Beach as the tide was going out, it was lovely. Our waitress was very friendly and charming. We both had corn lobster chowder followed by the haddock - my husband had it broiled and I opted for stuffed.... More

Fantastic!!!! French onion soup the best I've ever had. Our group ate downstairs in the pub which resembles a hull of a ship. Fish, pasta, crab and salads and it was all wonderful.

My wife and I stayed at the York Harbor Inn so we decided to try their restaurant. Glad we did. They sat us by the window with a nice view of the ocean. Our waitress was efficient if not exactly the most friendly. The roasted garlic and butter at the beginning of our meal was a nice touch. I recommend... More

We had the steamed lobster dinner at York Harbor Inn in York Harbor, Maine last night (5/12/15). Probable the best lobster dinner I have ever had and certainly the most reasonable priced at $32. Waitress was super friendly and helpful.
