Eventide is a wonderful place! The menu is great, the drinks are unique and delicious, and they have hands down the best lobster roll in Maine!!! Can't wait to visit again.

What a fantastic experience! Everything we ate was pretty amazing and the cocktails are top notch, crafted by mixologists who know what they are doing. Bar seating is not first come first serve and the space is quaint, so come early and be patient.

Our server helped make informed recommendations on oysters and they were delicious! We ordered the mayo lobster roll and the brown butter lobster roll, both great, but the brown butter one was really memorable. Fun, interesting and tasty cocktails too.

I can understand that if you're an oyster lover then you're at the right place- an abundance of varieties. Otherwise, I wasn't impressed with menu options or preparation. I am allergic to shell fish, yet I CAN eat fish, lobster, crab and shrimp. Although these others are offered on the menu Iwas out of luck....When mentioning my allergy to the waitress she quickly checked with the chef who informed us that ALL of the food on the menu is 'cross handled' and therefore he couldn't promise that I wouldn't be at risk. I eat at numerous restaurants and get seafood most of the time...the fact that a restaurant can't make provisions for someone with a severe allergy, will insure I will never return here again. My husband ordered the lobster roll which was an insult in size as to how it SHOULD be. It was served as a generously stuffed FINGER roll and according to him, drenched in mayo and wasn't impressive in taste. The service was impeccable however, atmosphere was so-so with loud music. A good hang out place but I wouldn't recommend this as a place to 'dine' but maybe a good place for a drink and a quick appetizer. There are also a few outside tables along the sidewalk. Seating inside is limited and mostly focused around the bar.

Simply put, oysters as they should be eaten. Vast choice of varieties, beautifully presented on the half shell. Also tried the mini oyster bun. And not to be missed, the dirty dirty martini with olive brine, oyster brine and hot sauce. Superb service and server recommendations. Most seating is at the bar, or at the bar facing the storefront window. Three tables outside and two inside round out this small, must try place.
