Honestly, a little baffled by the positive reviews after tonight. I wish I could say it must have been a bad night, but after consideration, no. Our meal was a total bust. The service staff was full of a lot of "Ummms," but not much else. Unmotivated and not cheerful, even on a bad night, they should have been more... More

A delicious meal for the price. I had the famous jumbo lobster roll which was as good as I have had in Maine with a side of sweet potato fries. My son got the fried clam strips with onion rings, the clam strips were obviously fresh and very good. My husband got the fried seafood combination (flounder, shrimp and scallops).... More

I love this place! Its cozy, clean & has great eats! Its one of my first stops each visit. they have many outdoor tables, and a few inside. Tonight, we took out Jumbo Lobster rolls & sat on our deck to watch the sunset. The fries, sweet potato fries & onion rings are all delish & nice & crispy! I... More

We stopped in for lunch and it was ok, there were a few things that would have made it better. I had a Cheeseburger and it was pretty good, unfortunately the roll was way too small and did not match the burger, it was so small it actually looked funny. Beware, the menus are outdated and the small slip of... More

Been here several times before, but seems like have taken a step back in their new location (1301 long beach blvd). On our recent visit, brought our own wine which is nice to be able to do. The staff seemed a little distracted, not focused on delivering their best. They have no plates to share appetizers (not sure why when... More

I want to thank the owner for the great experience my friends and I had memorial day weekend at The Maine Course. We were down for a Bachelorette party and the bride felt so special because of all the attention we received. From finding a table for 11 in a short amount of time, to speedy service with a smile...

7 of us ate at the Maine Course last Friday night. We had an enjoyable dinner and were all very pleased with the food and service. I had the fish and chips which was very fresh and tasty. Will go back again.

Went there tonight hoping for a last good family meal before we left the island. What we got was worse than fast food fare. It cost 113 dollars for 5 people (three of them children) and what we got was terrible. I got the coconut shrimp- fried too well done. very well done. The calimari was tasteless and I mean... More

Rather, we invite you to return and give us another try. Truly we will make every effort to make a second trip enjoyable and worth... More

I had great hopes for this restaurant since I have been to Maine many times so I envisioned great lobster rolls, buckets of fried scallops, etc. The lobster roll was tasty but the tablespoon of lobster on it was kind of embarrassing. The coconut shrimp and onion rings were great (if we go back that is the only thing that... More
