We have been there many times. Fantastic as always. Great view, great food and moderate price. Of course the best is lobster and this is the place to have it. If you prefer, go to the open fire outside for a drink.

What a fabulous lunch! We snagged a table overlooking the water, and started with excellent blueberry mojitos. Then lobster salad, clam chowder and really fresh fish. The prices are reasonable for such an outstanding restaurant. The service is excellent. The view is amazing.

We were a group of 6 women on our first trip to Maine. We of course had to try the Taste of Maine Platter. It was fabulous! Service was good and the view was the best! Would definitely recommend the Terrace Grill!

We went on a group of nine and it was really hard to sit all together without having the servers telling us not to move the tables. So we had to place all 9 chairs around 1 table and try to reach our plates when...More
