We ate in a dining room surrounded by views of the sea and shore, including a view of the famous Marginal Way. This was an impulsive decision to take advantage of the Sunday jazz brunch on a rainy fall day in Perkins Cove, and we had the best meal on our trip to Maine. I can't say enough about the excellent service, the friendly conversation with one of the owners, and the beautiful way the delicious food was presented. For a fine dining restaurant, the portions were generous and the prices, for the brunch, reasonable. The jazz duo helped everything taste and feel even better.

Great Spot...8 of us had lunch upstairs on the porch...and the view is great...can see one end of the Marginal Way. Food was terrific and the service even better. Great selection of fresh seafood!

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at MC Perkins Cove the other night. Fish & Chips and fresh Swordfish.
The crashing waves over the rocks made the evening very romantic for us.

We sat at the bar and had a drink and ate from the "bar" menu. The cheeseburger was large and done perfectly. The Lobster Roll was overpriced ($24.99 that evening) and lacking. To a person from outside of New England, it is probably ok for that price to get a taste of Lobster meat but for someone who has eaten "lobsta" rolls in and around New England, it was lacking in quantity. The Lobster was fresh and not frozen as it should be with just the right amount of Mayo. The fries come in a bucket and are fresh, tasty and plentiful.
Atmosphere is very good.

Based on a recommendation from a friend, we reserved a table at MC Perkins Cove and we were not disappointed at all. We had a drink in the cozy bar while waiting for our table and then were escorted to a great table facing the beautiful Maine coastline. The atmosphere was relaxed but sophisticated, the service was excellent but the food was truly outstanding. The crab cakes, though small, were the best we had ever had. Could have just kept those coming and made that our meal. Everything was delicious, including the fabulous desserts. Do yourself a favor and let MC spoil you with a romantic meal you won't forget--and that view is spectacular.
