We recently stopped at the Inn after the Steam Train for some lunch. We were debating whether to drive to Westbrook (which has some great dining options) or to stay local and enjoy the town. We were very disappointed in the food there...I had a salad and my husband had the fish and chips. I also emailed the Inn about the quality of our lunch there and they did not even send a reply. Next time we will take the short ride to Westbrook instead. Great place for atmosphere,beer, and sea songs, but pass on the dinner/lunch.
