I so enjoy going here for a quiet drink or easy light dinner! Their seafood chowder is some of the best i have ever had. I tried the fish tacos for the first time last night and they were delicious. 3 tasty tacos on the plate with a large serving of tasty fries on the side. Much more than I... More

We were staying at the Inn and ordered room service. We were told 20/25 mins. After an hr we called and were told they had forgotten! 10 mins later the food arrived arrived (flat bread in a box and meat plate uncovered). She didn't bring silverware, condiments or napkins. She announced "my bad, I had a few more tables and... More

We stopped at Coast Bar +Bistro after a Maine State Music Theater performance, looking for a quick supper. We had seen the pizzas on their Web menu and thought that would be the thing. My husband saw the oysters on their menu and given our proximity to Damariscotta, had three (@ a reasonable $1.79 each); he said they were wonderfully... More

I like this place. I went once for Mother's Day Brunch which was terrific -- poached salmon, several kinds of salads, several kinds of cakes for dessert -- everything was good. I went again last night. There's a bar area (I haven't sat at the bar) with sports on TV, it wasn't loud enough to bother us as we ate... More

It is a challenge to find a nice restaurant open on a Monday evening. This is when hotel restaurants really come to the rescue. Coast is tucked inside The Daniel Hotel. The atmosphere here could use some tweaking. Its minimalist decor comes off as boring and off putting. Even the lit fireplace didn't do much to warm the place. The... More

We were staying at the adjoining "The Daniel" hotel and got a coupon for a free $5 happy hour appetizer at check in (plus we were staaarving) so decided to try the restaurant out even though it was a little late. The ambience was charming, especially near the bar area with funky lighting and a giant gas lit fireplace. Our... More

Scallops? Fabulous. Calamari? Outstanding. I could go on...between the 7 meals that were ordered there wasn't a single item that wasn't at least very good. The room is soothing and elegant. This is a place to go to, remember, and go to again.

Valentine's Day, I had returned from a long trip and my date picked this place out and living in Portland I honestly thought, "the what now, in the where?". I guess I had heard of The Daniel before, but hadn't cared too much not needing accommodations in Brunswick aside from getting stranded there. The Coast Bar is the restaurant and... More

The Coast has a nice atmosphere and in season may very well be one of the places to go. That said, my experience was average and it should have been better than that. I was glad it was there as the weather prevented my getting out twice. The blue cheese dressing is amazing.
