“Please Reopen!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We went up to Maine in June for vaca. We always head over to this place. The sign on the door said "CLOSED AFTER 39 YEARS" we are so bummed out!!! And really you couldn't have made it 40 years!! I know..I know things happen and it is none of my business.... However, we did hear the locals say they heard someone has bought it and hopefully it will reopen at the end of this summer. I SO hope they do as we always go there to eat when we are up in the area.....until next time Cod's End.....

“Harborside dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Cod End is a small eating establishment on a dock overlooking Tenants Harbor. Fresh seafood and other types of food are served in an informal setting. The seafood is ultra fresh. A small seafood market is attached.

“Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

We have eaten here a few times. The food is fresh and they will pretty much prepare it how you want. They have a small adjoining seafood market. We have never been disappointed. The prices are high, but worth it as you can sit out on the dock and eat or sit inside in their rustic small dining room and the portions are good. The staff is friendly and they are pretty quick there. They also offer take out and they will package the seafood they sell for traveling. Which we have done and it has been convenient. The view alone makes it a great place to go, as it it located right in Tenants Harbor Landing.

“Nothing to make a detour for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We were staying a home in Tenants Harbor and so came by here for dinner one evening. The location is very nice. The tables unfortunately, are still oozing their pine sap, so all of our sleeves were covered in the sap, as our table had not been "taped." The food was fine. My lobster roll was good, but nothing really more than that. The wine selection was poor. I would not rush back but certainly would go again if in the area and didn't feel like cooking.

“Nice Deck View”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

I had heard a lot about his typical Maine establishment on the dock
Alas it disappointed severely. Small one pound lobsters were on offer for $19 a pair which is fair bu no bargain and he lobster salad looked wholesome. i decided to try the fish chowder always a good test.
It came a a thin watery gruel with no substance or creaminess. There were no clams or mussels and the fish was certainly not high class haddock but tasteless cheap coley.. Compared to the chowder served at the Whale tavern in Bar Harbor this was a travesty. I followed with a strawberry/rhubarb pie. The filling was good but the 'crust' was limp, soggy and tasteless..They have a steady stream o tourists so perhaps they are content to sit on their laurels?
