“Inedible”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

OK, not completely inedible. Started with the grilled romaine salad which was actually pretty decent. All downhill from there. We ordered an assortment of 'tapas', one worse than the next. The burger tasted like a cheap frozen patty, charred over an open flame, like I used to enjoy at daycamp as a child. The fries were cold, thin and hard, as though they had been cooked hours earlier. The corn was a 'mush' consistency. The lobster tacos were OK, and the skewered scallops were OK as well, just undercooked. The tiny glass of ice tea was filled from top to bottom with ice, and a few tablespoons of tea.
We actually went to McDonalds after our meal, to have some decent fries....a palate cleanser, so to speak.

“Wonderful Outdoor Dining Experience”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This restaurant always satisfies both big plates and small. The mussels and the crab cake appetizers were great. The grilled romaine salad is excellent and the almond crusted haddock entree is a favorite. The rack of lamb was cooked perfectly...a must for meat lovers. Service was friendly and efficient and the opportunity to eat outdoors really enhanced the dining experience. Highly recommend this eatery for visitors to Ogunquit, Maine.

“A great tradition”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We go every year to Gypsy Sweethearts the first night in town. They offer small plates as well as larger entrees. It's great fun to have several small plates to experience the chef's gift for blending various spices. This year included mussels in broth, lobster tacos, goat cheese salad with raspberries.....all were delicious.
