In an area where there lots of choices to dine, we found ourselves back here for our last night in Maine for dinner. We had been here for lunch----delicious! Best fish chowder we have ever had!!!The view stunning! But there are so many places that have been recommended we figured that would be it, but as our last night approached both my husband and I agreed, we had to head back tot he Dolphin. It did not disappoint! Chowder as good as we remembered and better than any other we had during our stay. Cajun haddock was outstanding! The scallops my husband ordered cooked to perfection. This is an unpretentious place but the food and view are unbeatable. This is a not to be missed mid-coast Maine experience!

Went mid afternoon on a beautiful sunny day in Maine. Definitely a destination location but the view was wonderful.

Salmon was recommended by the waitress - was very good and cooked perfectly. Cajun haddock basket was also very good.

Atmosphere great and very clean. Outside eating would have been even better!

Had a lunch of Cajun blackened haddock with dill cream sauce at this scenic and wonderful mid-coast restaurant. Both the food and views are superior, and close attention by our pleasant waitress made for a great experience. Senior staff (I.e., proprietor Mimi) paid a visit to assure our satisfaction, a nice touch. A seasonal strawberry-rhubarb crisp was the perfect finish to a terrific dining experience. Dazzling sea coast views. Thumbs up!

We visited on a foggy afternoon but our day was quickly brightened by the new look. Every table has a great view (even though it was more picturesque than lots to see in the fog).
Wife had the lobster stew and there was so much lobster it was almost obscene. Huge chunks including whole cutter claws and big tailpieces needed cutting in the broth. The no too tart lemonade helped make short work of the fantastic blueberry muffin.
For me, it had to be fried clams , and just the way I like them. Light batter and belly meat (not even slightly gritty) with a generous portion of tarter sauce. I opted for red potatoes rather than fries and they were equally delicious.
This will definitely be a regular "go-to" place for sure!

Great restaurant just 20 minutes out of Brunswick, Maine. New restaurant located on a point of land surrounded on three sides by the ocean. Great food, great ambiance. Staff is young and very attentive, bar with a deck.. Average prices, $$$ 15 -24 entrees. Marina at point. Watch the boats come and go. This is what Maine is about.
