We ate while staying at the inn. The food was the best we'd had on our Maine trip. The restaurant was quaint and cozy. Loved it.

We've stayed at some wonderful places over the years — including Relais & Chateaux in France — and the Pentagoet Inn and restaurant ranks up there with the best of them. What could be more wonderful after a day off exploring coastal Maine than to come back to a delicious dinner of braised duck, short ribs, or grilled diver scallops... More

We were transported in time when we stopped in for a drink at this bar. While the bar selection is limited (the focus is on the delicious dinner menu at the b&b), it is filled with floor-to-ceiling vintage photos, paintings and art from travels abroad. It is worth going to explore the various pictures and think on all the stories... More

Located in a picturesque coastal Maine village this restaurant is part of an "old time" inn on the main street of the village. The staff is friendly and very knowledgable of both food and wine. the salads are fresh and the Wedge salad the best of the lot in my opinion. Several of us had the lobster linguini which was...

Every time we come to Castine, the first thing we do is make a reservation at the Pentagoet Inn and the second thing we do is to make sure we have a reservation at the restaurant. If we lived closer, we would be there every week for their beautiful presentations and wonderful food. The staff is consistent in presenting a... More

We had a delicious dinner in the Pentagoet Inn Dining Room. The atmosphere was pretty, classic, & romantic. The crab cake appetizer & salad we shared was fresh & flavorful. My husband had a perfectly cooked rib-eye steak & I had delicious lamb chop lolli pops. Our server was excellent, attentive & willing to share opinion & info. Would definitely... More

What a perfect menu at dinner. A little something for all tastes, all prepared to perfection. Even if we hadn't been staying at the Inn, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys high quality preparation. My short rib was nothing short of fantastic. The crab cakes were exemplary, and the lobster pasta had the most divine sauce... More

Food so good went for dinner twice. Lobster bouillabaisse great and polenta with mushrooms outstanding. Excellent wine list and great dessert choices. Best meal in Castine.
