Great view, mixed bag on food

We booked a table on the deck and were pleased with the service and view. I had crab cakes, which were delicious. By wife had steamed snow crab legs, which she felt were overcooked, as it was difficult to extract the crab meat. She eats snow crab often and knows when it is done right. This wasn't... read more

After being disappointed at the Front Street Grill (couldn't get served), we walked a couple doors down to this little gem. We had blackened Mahi sandwiches and I can honestly say it was the best that I've had. Well done folks!

I really enjoy the atmosphere of this restaurant. It sits on the waterfront and I believe every table has a view. The food is delicious as was their desert! They even have a bakery at the front so you can take more with you!

I had the pleasure of sampling the entrées; dinner with friends: stuffed flounder, grouper, and mahi crab au gratin. All of them were superb. Perfectly cooked, fresh, flavorful local seafood. The meal was accented with tasty cocktails and their seasoned bread & butter which was hard to stop eating. All of the desserts were exactly what they should be, depending... More

We had a large party of 10 people and it was an overall wonderful experience. With us having such a large party, the service was very good. The food was excellent as well. We had the mini crab cakes and grouper bites as an appetizer and they were both delicious. The clam chowder was delicious, too! The staff was very... More

The one positive of our visit to the Spouter Inn was the great water view. It have us a distraction from the terrible service and subpar food. We should have left when we were told the standard side with all meals was plain rice. "Plain" described our meal. The mixed grill had absolutely no flavor. I've never had bad shrimp,... More

We had a wonderful dinner out on the deck. We had rode our jet skis earlier that day! So we weren't exactly dressed for dinner, but they were still very accommodating and the food was delicious!! Enjoyed a sunset while eating dinner! :).

Great view! Sit on the deck and watch the ships come in. Sunday brunch was great and they have half orders for those wanting a lighter meal.

We had a very good experience at this restaurant. The deck view is so nice. My husband had the crab and corn chowder on special that day and it was very good. The spouter chowder was ok. He also had a soft crab sandwich and he is still talking about how good it was.

We were in town with a large group of adults and kids and called the Spouter Inn to see if they could accommodate us. The manager checked with her staff and confirmed that they could take all 24 of us if we sat at separate tables which was fine. The manager greeted us and was extremely friendly. We got seated...
