Last year I rated the Island Inn Restaurant 4 stars. Very good but not great. This year the food was better. I especially enjoyed the Monhegan Seafood Stew. The menu is varied and delicious, suitable for many different tastes.

With so few choices on the island, located 10 miles off the coast of Maine, it did not have to be terrific, but it was. The dishes were inventive, well presented, and delicious. Service was very friendly. The walls have nice art for sale. It is BYOB, so bring something from the mainland, or purchase from a small but well... More

Verging on the romantic, the dining room isn't large and fortunately isn't terribly noisy, and though in former times the culinary standards might have weakened, this time we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Very fresh, well-seasoned dishes made with a flair and design that was definitely way above average. We can hardly wait to return.

We had a very good experience here. The staff is friendly, the owner is very kind and genuine, and the food was fantastic. High end price but I think it lives up to the cost.

Monhegan Island is one of our very favorite places and the Island Inn our favorite place to stay. This year we stayed in the Pierce cottage and it was very comfortable. The dining room serves a complimentary breakfast to the guests and is open for lunch and dinner to everyone. The food is excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating. Of... More

The Island Inn restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had breakfast and dinner there two days during our stay at the Island Inn. The breakfast menu featured a great array of buffet food, both hot and cold and made several items to order such as eggs and pancakes. The dinners were scrumptious. I highly recommend the brandy...

As we exited the ferry and walked up the dock to the town of Monhegan, there was no way of knowing that the huge three story clapboard Island Inn would hold the most amazing dinner of my life! Arriving without reservation our maitre'd/waiter found us a table after just a short wait. Having been told to bring out own beverage... More

The Island Inn restaurant on Mohegan Island is first class. It is easily the nicest place for lunch or dinner of the island. We stopped in for a light lunch on a recent day trip. My wife enjoyed their chowder while I had an excellent pan-fried haddock sandwich. This is a great place to visit for a break from hiking,... More

We had dinner with friends at the Island Inn and it was relaxing, unrushed, delicious and full of art - what more could you ask for ? I chose the beet with goat cheese starter and a pasta dish with lobster for the entree. A friend suggested we try the blueberry soup, a tasty dessert...it was.
