Morse's was a very pleasant surprise: it had the DownEast look, the waterfront location, and lots of cars in front; but it also was near the end of a winding two lane road which seemed to be headed to the UK. The surprise was that although an obvious tourist draw the food was Fabulous. We arrived on the day before... More

Drove all the way out to go for dinner. CLOSED FOR THE SEASON. The owner really needs to change the Hours on social media. Not happy. Probably great food but save yourself the trip for now.

We had outstanding service, a beautiful view, and a wonderful meal. The desserts, blueberry pie with ice cream and chocolate peanut butter pie were outstanding.

The first thing you will notice is the limited parking but do NOT let that deter you! I promise this restaurant is worth your persistence. It was wet and windy the night we went, and as soon as we walked in the door (this place has a screen door - that says welcome like nothing else can!) we felt like... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the proprietor where we were staying in Harpswell. What a disappointment this dinner was! First of all, the glass of wine that I ordered was very meager - only about 4-6 sips. I rarely complain at restaurants but I sent the glass of wine back - I refused to pay for it. I... More

When we're in Bailey Island we always make a point to eat at Morse's Cribstone Grill. This year we almost missed our chance because we arrived in town the very day they were closing for the season. We know we'll have a good meal because the food and service at Morse's is consistently good. This year was no exception. My... More

Went for a late lunch. Wish I would have stayed in downtown Portland near the hotel. Waste of a meal. The lobster roll was tasteless with a bun that crumbled into pieces it was so stale. The 1 1/2 pound lobster dinner couldnt have been an ounce over a 1 pound. The french fries (of the frozen variety) were stale... More

My wife and I recently had lunch here and were very please with the food. That day the restaurant was full but the staff was were very attentive given the volume of customers in the restaurant. For that evening we selected several lobsters for the restaurant to cook for us as take out. The lobsters were 2-3 pounds each. Very... More

Awesome. The lobster dip was the best I've ever had. We split the seafood combo and still had food leftover. We highly recommend Morse's.
