On Main Street, you'll find this quaint spot. It has great food, friendly staff, and a fire pit. You have to cross Main Street to get there, and you'll be glad you did!

On our first day trip to Ogunquit Maine (awesome place to spend a day) my wife and I stopped off for a late lunch, so we were hungry. While looking at the menu someone from the restaurant offered us sample fudge which was reeally good leading us to decide trying Rose Cove for lunch. We sat outside under the awning... More

We were attracted by the fire pit tables as we decided to have dinner there and people watch. The food is noting to rave about and its very basic menu... Our biggest problem was there was hair in 2 out of 4 dishes which was a complete turn off ! That was a first and last visit.

I used to look forward to eating in this cute little café. It has been renovated and has a very nice outside patio to enjoy a summer meal. But lately they have been allowing patrons to bring their dogs to the restaurant. As much as I love dogs, they don't belong in a restaurant or on the outside patio where... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch and a glass of wine at the Rose Cove. We sat outside under the awning and watched people and the busy little street. The lobster sandwich and lobster bisque were very good. The service was fast and friendly. I recommend this cafe!

Thought we'd try this interesting looking restaurant with the cool tables outdoors, however, it was very windy so we choose to eat inside. This was a mistake because the inside was very warm to the point of being somewhat uncomfortable. Ordered a hamburger medium rare, it arrived extremely well done. Sent it back, second time it arrived medium, well done... More

Happy place to dine. You never get enough outdoors when you're on vacation and you can sit on the terrace here. Too hot? Sit indoors - it's air conditioned. In the evening they have a fire pit in the middle of your outdoor table. Very nice ambiance! The lobster is to die for! I ordered the lobster salad almost every... More

The restaurant is a great location to enjoy if you are at the beach and want to swing in for lunch or dinner. The view from the outdoor patio was good for people watching and relaxing as it is at the busy intersection of Beach and Main St. It does get hot on the outside patio depending on where the... More
