“Overpriced, below average food, gaudy decor”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

$3.25 extra for fresh fruit on a waffle & the $9.99 waffle arrived with 2 strawberries....

Fresh fruit included cantaloupe, honey dew melon, pineapple & a single strawberry......for $4.95....

The gaudy decor, (satin swags, lots of gilded mirrors, statues, etc) only added insult to injury..

“Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We arrived in Ogunquit on a Friday evening and decided to just get in the car and drive until we found a restaurant thaqt was open. We happened upon Bintliffs (which was closed when we were last in this area) and stopped in (hoping to get a table as the parking lot was pretty crowded). We were not disappointed! The bar was packed and the restaurant was crowded but we were shown to a lovely table and greeted by our waitperson almost immediately. The drinks were perfect and the food was very good. The decor is very unique. Almost every table is "framed" by an antique window, giving the feeling of privacy even in a crowded room. Nice place.

“Great for brunch!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Since the weather was bad in Maine on Valentine's Day, we stayed in and decided to do Sunday Brunch which we both enjoy very much to substitute. We choose to go to intliff's as it was snowing hard Sunday morning and they are close. It was a very good choice! They were semi-busy, mostly locals who didn't want to go far. The choices were quite broad as they have an extensive brunch menu (Saturday and Sunday only). I had Bintliff's scramble, which is a very rich scrambled egg dish (cream in the eggs, very hearty), and my wife choose a Benedict with lots of veggies and Canadian Bacon. Both were delicious and mine came with hash browns, done golden and perfect. The service was a bit slow at first as several groups came in together, but it got sorted out and we had placed out order in ten minutes of so. Coffee appeared quickly, so that improved my mood. The check was very reasonable, most likely because we skipped the Bloody Mary's since snow plowing awaited at home. We recommend Bintliff's for brunch or lunch, but have not had dinner there..

“Brunch is a must”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Locals love this place-that's gotta be good. Bloody Marys are a meal. Ask, some of the entrees can be served as half portions! Always interesting people to see and talk to.. Creme Brullee French Toast!

“Excellent service for our party of 12!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I booked our reservation with the Chef a week in advance for my Mom's retirement dinner. I wanted to be sure that they would take no issue having 2 children in our party on a Saturday evening, and he was more than accommodating. We were given a private room to the left to celebrate our occasion. I ordered an expresso martini (excellent!). For food, I had the special of the day, which was baked sole stuffed with crab. It was excellent! My husband ordered the tuscan chicken dish and said it was mouth watering. Others in our party ordered ribs, the rack of lamb and crab cakes, all got rave reviews. The atmosphere in our room was beautiful victorian decor, with background "music" of old-time radio shows. Just loved it. It was the perfect setting for our little family gathering, and couldn't have asked for a nicer waitstaff. Will definitely be back!! Oh! Forgot to mention: If you must use the powder room, be sure to try the "salt scrub" spa on your hands before returning to your table. It is amazing and left my hands silky soft! :-)
