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.

I am not giving this the top meal I've ever had because I wanted a shrimp dish and they didn't have a stand alone dish on the menu. I ordered a ricotta and spinach ravioli with shellfish sauce. It was delicious, but not what I was in the mood for. My husband ordered steak. He said it was excellent. It... More

We dined Sunday night in the Ship's Cellar pub. The wait staff and host were friendly. Unfortunately, the waiter who brought our food was witnessed across the dining room constantly running his hands through his hair. GROSS! The waiter has not had any training (placed dishes far away, entree facing away, etc.) and on a slow night...no one was there... More

We had a lovely romantic dinner overlooking the bay. They managed to get us in at the last moment and made to feel very welcome. The food and service were terrific and we would definitely return.

Our recent dinner at the 1637 at York Harbor Inn was a great experience. The service and food presentation were exceptional and the food quality was second to none. The views from the dining room overlooking the Maine coast are wonderful. My salmon was fresh, cooked to perfection and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing and memorable evening.

Try to get a table by the window if you can - the view is just beautiful. They will take your request - but if a window table isn't available, you can just wait. The food here is fresh and perfectly presented. The price fixe meals are good - served all evening on Thursday - and a great value. We... More
