Tried Steamers, Damariscotta River oysters, and the Haddock special. The special was a very light entree. Clams and oysters were very good. Try sitting outside as the inner restaurant does not have very good ventilation.

We were delighted to return to one of our favorites on Pemaquid Point now that summer season is here! Views here are fabulous, of a picturesque harbor and beautiful sunsets. Food is first rate, whether surf or turf. Generous pours and friendly service.

The perfect location right on the harbor, made even better with a perfect evening sunset. Haddock dinner and fish tacos were excellent, highly recommend. Very busy for a weekday night but we still received prompt service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, exceptional food: we will be back!

I've always loved the Pemaquid area, and the Sole is no exception. The fish tacos have been joined by chicken tacos as well, both of which are delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about both the food and drink menus, and was a joy to talk to about the area. The service was very good, and the night was topped off with a beautiful sunset. Would visit again.

We went twice while on vacation. The place is chill and informal. The first time the food was very good. I enjoyed the local oysters and the lobster roll was terrific. The full lobster was wonderful too. But the service was slow at best and sped up only when they wanted to clear our table. The next time we waited 40 minutes for a table promised in 20 minutes and then sat another 20 minutes without anyone coming to our table. We got up to leave and no one noticed. We would not recommend this place.
