I was in Castine for three days and ate the lobster salad all three days for lunch. The lobster was so fresh and the salad vegetables were crisp and crunchy. The wait staff were very friendly. I loved soaking up the sun, while sitting on the deck.

Dennett's Warf is a seasonal resturant anyone visiting Castine should visit. The unique charm of the restaurant alone makes it a memorable place. The nautical chart tables and polished bar make a unique setting for those "from away".

Down home hospitality in an Up East village. What a friendly crew running this place. They make you feel at home when you walk in the door. Great selection for lunch, dinner or snacks.

A nice little harbor bar. They were out of lobster the first day but their season had ended. They got it in by the second day and it was tasty.

We were happy to find this waterfront restaurant open and serving lunch on our visit to Castine. Our chowders and seafood platter were very enjoyable and we appreciated the friendly service.

We ate at this fun local spot twice during our 4 night stay in Castine. The atmosphere was fun & casual with tvs to watch sports & live music at night. Food was fresh & tasty. Service was great with good recommendations for tourists from locals.

We were here in September, and not everything was open, so we ate at this restaurant. Nothing about it was spectacular, including one plate that was brought out for bread which wasn't spotlessly clean. We wouldn't eat here again. The pub next door is better.

We stopped here for lunch while traveling through Castine. The staff was friendly, and the decor was interesting. We had a lobster roll and a lobster salad, and both were generous portions of quality lobster meat.
