We have been staying at the Comfort Inn for years; in the beginning the restaurant was not very good, but over the last several years, it has soared way up on the rating scale. I believe the changed occured when Chef Hightower took over the reins. What an amazing woman and chef. As for the review by Lenny B, I... More

Thank you Carol B. for setting the record straight. In the past, we struggled to find just the right Culinary team. Two years ago, we hired the right combination of people in our restaurant.

From the second we walked in the door, the feeling was very off. The hostess never smiled, was very unfriendly, not rude, but never smiled, or said Hello or Welcome. The waitress was just as bad, never smiled, was NOT helpful in any way. The food we wanted was not available, the "homemade" dessert was CLEARLY store bought, .There was... More

Thank you for dining with us, and than you for writing. I am sorry that you didn't have the same great experience that others have had. Yes, we do eliminate live lobster as we go into winter. They don't do well when removed from their natural environment for any length of time. We serve copious amounts of lobster in the... More

The food and service in this restaurant was simply awesome! I had stuffed haddock one evening, and it was one of the best meals I ever ate. Another night I had lobster turnover, and once again, it was a delicious meal!

Thank you for dining with us, and thank you for writing. The lobster turnover is my summer favorite as well. You have chosen well, too with the baked stuffed haddock. It is our most popular dish. I am glad that you enjoyed both. We hope to serve you again soon. Sincerely, Barry Asalone General Manager More

Our hors d'oeuvres reception Friday night for wedding guests was excellent. The Chef and Carol were very accomodating and professional before and during our event. Food was excellent and we were very pleased with the whole event. Guests remarked as well how nice everything was. They even helped coordinate a surprise birthday cake for the groom's mother. Well done.

Everyone's food was barely edible. Surly waitress. The beautiful view of Belfast harbor was the only good thing about it. Brightly lit. No atmosphere. Not a lot of good places to choose from in Belfast but there are better choices. Better yet, get in your car and drive to Camdem.

We reviewed the menu before going and felt they had some great dishes. When we ordered our meals, they did not have what we wanted. We do have to say the view is very nice and the drinks were very good.

Ive been staying at the Comfort Inn attached to the restaurant for a few days now. After glancing through the restaurants menu I was very excited to eat at Oceans Edge.
