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

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

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

Food was excellent. Service quick and friendly. Menu was diversified. Husband had the lobster alfredo in a delicious pastry and we had lobster bruschetta and a stuffed haddock. All excellent.

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

Good choice for restaurant with a view. We ate there twice, once inside and once on the patio. Interesting menu. Try the lobster turnover! Chef even made up a dish that had been discontinued. Service was exceptional! Prices were competitive with other similar restaurants in Belfast.

Thanks for your review. I'm with you, I love the Chef's lobster turnover. And she only does it in the summer. It's another reason to look forward to summer in Maine. Lately, she has a meatball appetizer. It's four meatballs stuffed with bleu cheese and bacon, and finished under the broiler. It's like stuffed mushroom caps without the mushrooms. It... More

The waitstaff was wonderful and very helpful with food recommendations. The view was A+ and the food was good enough that the prices didn't hurt :)

I'm going to be honest we weren't sure about this restaurant based on other reviews but the menu posted looked good. We decided to give it a try especially since it was in our hotel and I'm glad we did. The service was great. We really enjoyed the food. The lobster bruschetta was fantastic!

Thank you for your review. I haven't tried the Chef's lobster Bruschetta yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Next time you visit, try the lobster turnover. It's lobster meat in a light Alfredo sauce, tucked into filo dough and baked in the oven. It's my summer favorite. Thanks for the compliments on food and service. I'll pass your comments... More
