My fiancé and I are regulars and are having our wedding reception here in June. Food is excellent! Staff are great! Besides their regular menu, there is a early bird menu with some great offerings. Mellow guitar music is also available on weekends. View of the York Harbor is beautiful.

1637 @ York Harbor Inn is where you should go. Not just because you can walk there from your room (without a jacket). The ambiance and food were wonderful. The staff were over the top. I happened to mention to my wife that we needed wine glasses for our room. Then without my asking the glasses were provided. Loved it.

Very popular in summer, go for the double-lobster special. Great variety of fresh seafood, Maine-style. Affiliated with the Goldenrod in York Beach, so you know the ice cream is great too.

Came for dinner as a part of of large party of 15, we were given our own separate room, and the experience began. Great atmosphere, very relaxing, with many windows, and we had attentive service, with the quantity of food served for our party seemed to go very efficiently. We had a variety of dishes-Baked Stuffed Haddock, Filet Mignon, Lemon... More

We stay at the York Harbor Inn every year with our dogs. We normally stay at the Habor Crest, which is pet friendly. This year we stayed at Harbor Cliffs, the new winter pet friendly inn. We had a fabulous room with direct water views. Our room was large with a two person hot tub and fireplace. We loved it... More

Wish I had known about this place a long time ago, I would have been a local by now. I love it! Great atmosphere, good service. Went in for a drink after we'd already eaten somewhere else, next time we'll have lunch and/or dinner here. Crackling fire going, comfy benches, what more can you ask for. Great ocean views from...

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!
