Marine Room has great food, but it's really the view you're there for. Sitting right on top of the waves!

We had a memorable dinner at the Marine Room last week. We dined on Sunday night and chose to order off the lobster menu. The lobster bisque was fantastic. It was a large portion of a rich and flavorful bisque. Next came a lobster tail...More

Marine room would have been terrific. . . if it were half the price. I found the setting gorgeous and the service excellent; but the price was simply not worth it. There are better places to go with good views.

We went on lobster night and enjoyed waves crashing into the building. Views at sunset are exceptional. Decor and service have a 1960/1970s feel. Maine lobster was well prepared but definitely second place to the overall view and room.

We were visiting from Phoenix. I reserved for a romantic dinner. Everything was high class. The drinks, wine selections and lobster fixed in inventive ways were superb. The Prix Fixe Sunday dinner was elegant.

We were walking the shore in jeans and T-shirt and stumbled upon this great restaurant. We were lucky they had a table available. They made no problem of our simple clothing, but we did feel under dressed compared with the... More
