It's a nice little restaurant with about twenty tables. Our server was very friendly. The food was ok not really anything special.

Thank you for your review. I'm pleased to read that you found your server friendly, but a bit saddened that you didn't find the food special. Please, if you get backk this way before the end of the summer, try the lobster turnover (my favorite) or the lobster & filet mignon pizza. I think you'd really find those two items... More

Local flavors incorporated, we tried the pork roast which was a little dry, but was yummy with the Maine blueberry saucwassweet potatoes and vegetable medley and of course blueberry shortcake. Staff was nice and Amy was very accommodating. Highly recommend

Wow! You can't beat top notch service and caring chefs. The lobster and filet mignon pizza was amazing. What a crust!! They halved it for us due to my meat allergy. Our server was friendly and personable, not to mention accommodating. Great care was taken to oversee our needs. Our first visit to Belfast gets better by the moment. Highly... More

Wife and I stopped by here for a late supper one night and sat outside with a wonderful view of the ocean/bay. The food is delicious, and the service is fantastic

The restaurant is attached to the Fireside Inn, but is open to the public as well. We were staying at the Inn and didn't want to get back into the car after a long trip. I'm ashamed to say we weren't expecting much and were we ever surprised! The lobster and filet mignon pizza was FABULOUS! My husband had the... More

Thank you for writing. Your husband had my summer favorite, the lobster turnover! The chef only makes it during the summer, when the lobster meat is tender and fresh. I miss it in the winter. It's just one more reason to look forward to summer in Maine...but I digress. I'm glad you liked the food and service. We look forward... More

We've stayed at the fireside inn a few times in the past couple years & have found this place convenient, yes.., but best of all, food is very good. Husband had some chowder that he loved! And because we were bringing some pizza back to our room for the kids, we were able to enjoy a drink at the bar!!... More

Thank you for your review. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed both eating in, and then taking our a pizza. I like the comparison of our pizza to Bertuccis' pizza. I'll pass that compliment on to the chef. I'll thank the bartender as well. We hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Barry Asalone More

Good menu with options for most everyone, and a full bar. Service was very good and fast. The view of Penobscot Bay is stunning. They serve dinner year 'round, and I will be going back

Thank you for your review. your comment, "They serve dinner year 'round, and I will be going back" makes me want to caution that Chef Hightower's lobster menu disappears in the fall. So, if you like those options, return soon. That said, the Chef always adds "comfort food" in the winter. Her hearty, flavorful dishes help make those long, dark... More

Sounds like a lobster extravaganza. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. The Chef does lobster six ways, but only during the season. She likes to keep it fresh. I'll pass your compliments on to the service staff as well as the culinary staff. We hope to see you again. Thanks for writing. Sincerely, Barry Asalone More
