Celebrated my wife's birthday at MC with a great dinner and excellent wine. She loved the atmosphere and the view, and my daughter and I enjoyed the meal and making her happy. Thanks MC!

we recently stopped by early evening to have something light at the bar and enjoyed the peeky-toe crab cakes and fish-n-chips. Quality ingredients, prepared well.

I stumbled upon MC Perkins on a very spontaneous trip to Ogunquit. It was a quiet evening and I arrived just before sunset and walked into the lovely appointed bar . The dining room where I ate ( they have an upstairs which I didn't see) had sweeping dramatic views of the rocky coast. The lighting was soft. The decor... More

My wife and I met her brother at MC Perkins Cove for a quick lunch and had the best chowder I have ever tasted. Well worth the wait.

Our second time to MC Perkins Cove, this time for our anniversary. Wanted great food on the waterfront, and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is casual, reminds me a little bit of a California chic vibe, but from a Maine point of view. Started out with and could have been wholly satisfied with the special salad of the night... More

This is a nice seafood restaurant with an ocean view. This would be described as fine but unpretentious dining in Perkins Cove - a picturesque place within walking distance of Ogunquit. It's not cheap and the bill can quickly expand if you add appetizers, soups, salads and side dishes not to mention a bottle of wine and cocktails.

Thank brodie52
Javier N, Manager at MC Perkins Cove, responded to this review

I'm honored the view, seafood, and drinks could all earn such high praise, Brodie -- I take this all to heart! It's great to hear the atmosphere was comfortable, too, and I hope we'll get to see you back for another bite to eat someday! Until then, Javier, General Manager More

My wife and I recently visited MC Perkins with another couple for lunch. The best thing about the venue is it's location and ocean view. Being huge fans of Arrows when it was in Ogunquit, MC Perkins is an overall disappointment as far as the food is concerned. Two if us got the chopped salad whose ingredients must have cost... More

Larry, I'm disappointed your visit felt below average -- that's never the feeling we want to impart on any of our guests. It sounds like the only dish that let you down was the chopped salad, however. Please know, we're always happy to fix anything on the spot if we're made aware, and I hope you were able to let...

We were so excited to be visiting Ogunquit after so many years and so surprised to find out that The Hurricane had been out of business for 12 years after being purchased by new owners. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the food is still as wonderful as before and service exceptional. We both ordered lobster and our... More

Good fare and stunning views from their dining room make this a very enjoyable meal setting in Perkins Cove. The food is good and the staff are very friendly and pleasant. Our waiter was from Colorado, and gave our table of 9 really very personal service.

Thank Bill C

Brendan, the waiter, arrived at the table to pour water and said "where is your water glass". When I kiddingly said "I guess I stuck it in my back pocket" he proceeded to leave the table and take the pitcher of H2O back to his station. Table beside us had water glasses sitting there. After several minutes he returned to... More
