Dinner at the Inn

End your day of exploration by enjoying a relaxing meal at our Maine restaurant, located in our attached rustic barn with views of the Mill Pond and grounds. Unique from other Deer Isle restaurants, our menu always features fresh, local ingredients and changes on a regular basis to take advantage of the seasonal bounty our area has to offer. We pride ourselves on using local ingredients from organic farms and seafood caught in our local waters, as well as our attentiveness to detail and innovative menu creations.

No matter what you are craving, we have a dish that is guaranteed to satisfy. Choose from classics like seared halibut with lobster risotto or try something new like our crispy eggplant with truffle oil. We have something for everyone to enjoy! Check out our sample menu below for an example of our menu.

During the 2016 season, our restaurant will be closed on Sundays and Mondays (breakfast is served every day for our inn guests). Our Downeast Maine restaurant can book up several days in advance, to ensure you are not disappointed, please be sure to make an advanced dinner reservation before you arrive, as we may not be able to accommodate you without one.

Whether you are staying at our Downeast Maine inn or just want to come for dinner, please call 207-348-6615 to make your dinner reservation through our front desk.
