Having dinner at Cape Neddick Inn is like eating in grandma's dining room; one wall has a big stone fireplace (the smell of ashes a bit off-putting on a rainy night in July), another wall has a hutch, and a third holds a bookcase. The menu is diverse and offers dishes that could be considered "old fashioned," chicken crusted in parmesan served with pasta and red sauce, for example. The rolls were the star of our meal; served warm with a generous sprinkling of salt on top, an offer of seconds was difficult to resist. The roasted golden beet salad was good, but overdressed, so be sure to ask for the dressing on the side. The spring salad was good as well, but again, overdressed. The fish chowder appetizer was very good and, unlike the meals to come, was properly seasoned. The somewhat bland, under-seasoned chicken and lobster saltimbocca was served over nicely seasoned garlic mashed potatoes with a side of perfectly sauteed baby spinach. The beef short ribs were dry and required a request for a side of au jus to help rectify the dryness; the spinach side with this dish was also perfectly seasoned, not over cooked, and delicious. The steak dish, too, suffered from under seasoning and was rather pedestrian. Eat in the quaint bar area, opt for wine, rolls, fish chowder and a side of sauteed spinach. Leave happy.
