“Super Birthday Celebration Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We primarily picked this restaurant for a birthday celebration meal for its terrific ocean views (and were certainly not disappointed on that score) but were delighted by our meals and the good service, too. Choices among four of us included seared scallops, fresh halibut, roasted chicken and lamb chops...and all of us went away grinning from ear to ear over how good our dishes were. Beautifully updated dining room, done in a classic Maine style. Good distance between tables for real comfort. Go for the fully enclosed porch seating if you are seeking the great view. Definitely will return. One caution is that the inn is booked almost every weekend with very large wedding parties, so if you want to avoid that whole scene it's best to book a mid-week dinner.

“Great Food and Service, Lovely View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

The restaurant and bar in the Newagen Seaside Inn are both not to be missed. The view of Cape Newagen is gorgeous and can be enjoyed from many tables in the dining area. The waitstaff are attentive and see to your every need. The food is in my opinion some of the best in Boothbay Harbor. My favorites were the halibut, scallops, salmon, and the short ribs if you are not a seafood fan. The chocolate torte for dessert was divine. Overall, a winning combination.

“Lovely view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were in Boothbay Harbor for a week and took a drive to Southport Island and happened upon this inn and restaurant. What a find. The hotel and grounds were so lovely we plan to come back and stay. We were too early for lunch so we strolled the grounds. The kids played chess with the giant chess board. We were there mid-week but I understand every weekend in the summer they have weddings so plan your stay accordingly. We were sitting on the deck and the waitress, Jenny, came and offered us water which was nice since they weren't open. As we had some people who found Maine too cool for them in early June, we opted to eat inside but I would have preferred eating on the deck.

We were the only guests during our entire lunch....again we were there before the season kicks into full gear. The restaurant was beautiful and we had a lovely view of the ocean and the grounds. The food was excellent, the service was great. The ambience was perfect. It felt like we had stepped back in time and at the end of our week agreed that this was the nicest place we ate. A lovely drive, a lovely meal, a perfect day.

“Hidden gem in the Boothbay region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This has to be one of the hidden gems in the Boothbay region given they're not located in Boothbay Harbor. I have to say however that the extra 10 minutes drive to the southern tip of Southport was well worth it. We originally chose this place because we were given a dinner credit by the hotel we were staying in and it was the only one we haven't been to amongst the choices we were given. Save to say, we were pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic and even my vegetarian wife raved about it. The dining room décor and lighting accentuated the food very well. The staff was very friendly and made us felt like not just another customer but a special guest. We will definitely be back.
