We had both a lunch and an evening meal at the Spouter Inn; seafood of course. The food was delicious, and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. Our evening meal was on their covered deck overlooking the river which made our time there even more enjoyable.

Many choices on the river front boardwalk, but a good recommendation at the local coffee shop led to this spot for lunch. Was well worth it as the menu was so interesting and the wine list so inviting. It was a $70 lunch but a pound of steamed shrimp for supper balanced out the tab for the day and who... More

This restaurant has it all. We had a window seat on the water, watching boats and dolphins go by. All four meals were excellent, especially the crab dip and crab cakes. Our server, Frank, did a terrific job of differentiating the various items on the menu and his recommendations were spot on! If in this area, the Spouter Inn is... More

My fiancé and I were actually recommended to visit another restaurant down the street from this establishment. However, upon walking past the front of this restaurant we asked a couple that were just leaving where the other restaurant was....and they STRESSED to us that we need not go any further. They were right. Service, food and wait time was perfect.... More

We visited Spouter Inn twice this week. Our lunch of crab cake salad and carrot cake was so wonderful, we had to have a crab cake dinner. My appetizer of sesame coated scallops was filled with scallops and was marvelous. Friends had the shrimp and grits and Parmesan Scallops. All were fresh, flavorful and scrumptious. Again, my half portion (1... More

We went to the Spouter Inn on Easter and had a delicious dinner! The scallops were awesome and the rest if my family thoroughly enjoyed their dinner as well. We sat out back and had a lovely view of the water and the many boats coming and going. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others!

We were happy to read good reviews about this restaurant and try it out. It delivered! Great food with a lovely view and helpful friendly service. When one of us was trying to decide between entrees, the waitress made her recommendation (spinach salad with portobello and crab) and then offered us a replacement if we didn't like it. Of course,... More

We went there between meals but they still had a very complete menu. We ordered clam chowder and gumbo, both really nice. And then a fish sandwich that was very plain but cooked to perfection.
