Went here for a birthday dinner recently. Have been there before and I thought I would give it another chance, as I knew the views were incredible. From the air conditioned dining room you could see the ocean as the tide was coming in, from what appeared tinted picture windows so the views were not obscured by strong sun in... More

My wife and I come up to Ogunquit 2 or 3 times a year. Every visit to Ogunquit includes either a dinner or lunch at MC Perkins Cove. Dinner this past Monday was nothing short of exceptional. I had the Salmon Special and my wife Roast Chicken. Both were cooked to perfection. My children had Fried Haddock, kid's mac&cheese, Cheeseburger's... More

2 chefs want to start a business - that's great - but you don't charge horribly high prices for just ordinary food - and in a few cases, not even ordinary food. $42.00 for a small to medium strip steak (with onion rings) - that's an outrageous price for 2 items - vegetable? - that's an extra charge! macaroni and...

It's been 8 years since we visited Ogunquit, and we returned for a family vacation. MC Perkins Cove still has the magnificent views and great service, but the quality of the food has dropped significantly. Nothing we ordered (appetizers, salads, entrees) had the "Wow" factor. Everything was good, but that's it. Given the high prices, there are far better kitchens... More

We're so disappointed the "wow" factor was absent from this visit, and we appreciate you bringing it to our attention. Mediocrity is certainly the last impression we want to leave on you, and we're determined to restore your trust in our menu. If there's any chance we can make this right with you, we'd love to have you back for... More

Fabulous food in a magical setting! We were fortunate to have a window seat overlooking Perkins Cove. Lunch was delicious and service outstanding. Recommend the fish chowder and fish tacos although everything on the menu looked tempting.

Picked this place for a birthday dinner because the location right on the water in Perkins Cove looked beautiful. I was a little concerned when I called to make the reservation and they said that they could not guarantee a table with a view of the water...not even for special dinners. They are strictly first come, first seated. However, my... More

We showed up without a reservation and were lucky enough to be seated at a table with a fantastic view of the coast. The service was good but the food was ok. My daughter had the lobster mac and my husband and I both had the pan seared flounder. All were unremarkable. The location and ambiance cannot be beat.
