Breakfast is plentiful and delicious with lots of choice. Wonderful. Dinner was divine this year. I had scallops and Maine corn pudding to die for. Perfection.

Had a most delicious dinner in a beautiful and historic hotel! Generous cocktail list, beautiful food presentation, fantastic specials, and a dessert list that showcases the owners professional days as a pastry chef!

Every choice on the menu at the Pentagoet Inn Restaurant was superb. I would like to be a visitor in the kitchen and learn how to make the many dishes they served because we kept coming back to the Pentagoet Inn for our meals.

In picture-perfect Castine, Maine, the Pentagoet Inn is a central attraction. The setting, both in and out, are lovely. Sadly, the food is anything but distinguished. One hopes for more, but the reality falls short. Disappointing.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Pentagoet Inn, which uses lots of local ingredients. They also have a small but delicious cocktail list, and be sure to save room for dessert!

We had dinner in the bar at the inn, which has to be one of the best spots in Castine, if not all of the southern coast of Maine. Jack and his wife were charming and the food really was incredible and that's in direct comparison with far more well known foodie hotspots we ate in while in Portland. The... More

Truely a surprise. I expected the dinner to good due to the fact that pre-dinner drinks in the bar were great and the guest room we were staying in was perfect, but I didn't expect my meal to be the best I had all week.

We were guests in this lovely inn. The innkeeper suggested making a reservation for dinner, as so many folks come from the outside to this great Castine restaurant. We were very glad to have that reservation, because there was a wonderful live jazz concert on the huge wraparound porch going on, many people chose to eat outside, it being a... More

Returned to Pentagoet for dinner July 4th weekend. Chef is wonderful, with appetizers, entrees and desserts prepared, cooked and plated impeccably. I started with a chilled cucumber soup. Perfect cool, light, fresh dish on a Summer's evening. Short ribs entree was perfection. Rich flavors, meat exactly the right tenderness, portion was ideal (filling but not overwhelming as in so many... More
