“Go for the ambiance not the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The ambiance was terrific - beautifully situated on teh water and lovely fireplaces. However the food was poor. The seafood stew I had all the seafood except the mussels were overcooked and tough. My husband had a prok special - also overcooked and the polenta could have beenused as a weapon. It is a shame the food was so poor given the ambiance and the atmosphere...a friendly place.

“Just what I want in a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Casual, relaxed place. Fireplaces, water front--right on the harbor. Excellent straightforward menu. Good salads, seafood, the basics of a simple but slightly upscale place. It's my favorite place in Camden. Terrific service as well.

“Probably the most beautiful town in Maine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Lots of beautiful shops and boats. Usually something going on in the summer. Great views of the ocean and Mt. Batte.

“Pleasant, quaint, a nice way to spend part of your day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

There is a very nice waterfront in downtown Camden (and downtown Rockland about 20 minutes south).

Plenty of tourist types of shops, all with pleasant staffs and cool things to look at, purchase, eat and enjoy.

A very nice park on the edge of downtown, with park benches and a nice walkway.

“Eat at a wonderful waterfront restaurant in Camden!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The restaurant was very easy to find, had a wonderful menu to choose from, and had a large table for our group to sit together! Everyone enjoyed their meal! They even had a gluten free desert available on the menu which was awesome and was a very nice ending to a wonderful evening!
