    We totally enjoyed our visit to 91 South. Our meals were fantastic, and the addtion of live music makes it a wonderful experience. It is very casual and not at all "fussy" (we love that) , but the food is very "fine dining". We would highly recommend giving this place a try.

    went there for our anniversary and the atmosphere was very nice and romantic. The server was very pleasant. I asked to have a dozen roses placed on the table before we arrived and they did not problem. The food was excellent EXCEPT the portions. My wife got the duck and that was decent but I got the scallops for an entrée and it came with 3. not 3 of the large scallops but just 3 regular scallops. For the price I was pretty disappointed. So expect to pay quite a bit for a good atmosphere but I wouldn't expect to be full when you leave.

    We have been to 91 south many times both before and after moving to the area. The food, atmosphere and service are always good. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must. As far as we can see this is the nicest dining outside of Portland..casual yet sophisticated, and usually there is a jazz or other light dinner music trio playing on Thursdays and Fridays.

    Wanted a special dinner to wrap up our small vacation getaway and 91 South was perfect! Very creative and delicious food as well as excellent prices on bottles of wine (good wine...not moonshine wine!). Sat in the closed-in outdoor portion of the restaurant as it was a beautiful night and was very romantic and secluded feeling. Nice waitress - prompt service but left us alone to talk which was perfect. The owners are great too - very friendly and helpful. Overall a great dinner.

    Three of us had the codfish stuffed with scallop and lobster and it was superb as my wife's steak. Normally, she can never finish a restaurant steak but I can confirm that the 3 bites she left for me were extremely tender and flavorful and perfectly cooked.

    We have dined at 91 South many times and always enjoyed it. It's small and classy, with very good food and a friendly sophisticated atmosphere. To add to the evening, local groups play jazz, classical and other types of dinner ambience music. Sometimes it's base, piano, guitar, sometimes violin and piano, always good music. The menu is limited but seems to have something for everyone. Definitely find the time to dine at 91 South. Unfortunately it's only open (I think...) Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Reservations definitely needed because it's popular and the dining room is small.

    Searched for a restaurant to take my wife out for her birthday. Found this place on Open Table, and decided to try it. We were pleasantly surprised; small and somewhat intimate, limited wine list and menu. However, the food was excellent, presentation was lovely, the service was superb, and I found a great bottle of Cab for $38. My wife was thrilled, and we'll go back for more.

    Loved the food and service. Everything was prepared and cooked properly and the service was excellent. I found the ambiance suffered somewhat from a lack of attention to the upkeep of an old building and a lack of attention to the first impressions as you arrive and make your way to the dining area. We will definitely be back as the good food and service far outweighed the negatives.

    We made reservations at the Inn on short notice. We were pleased with the lodgings but to our surprise was dinner, it was great. Good wine list, food was just perfect, I ordered the duck and it was tender, and very tasty. You can have a four course dinner if you wish and the price was very reasonable. We had a bottle of red French wine that somewhere else we probably pay more than $100, here it was very affordable. Every thing from appetizer to dessert was done just right. For dessert I had the fig wrapped in wanton threads, yummy!! My husband had the steak and it also was done just right, not typical steak taste you find somewhere else. Great food at a very cozy, friendly and welcoming Inn and restaurant.

    I have been here several times but not since they renovated and changed the menu. We were disappointed that their website menu was not offered. The food was good amd wine list fine but nothing outstanding. I would go again with lower expectations.

    Small, intimate, excellent cuisine and service. . . Some may consider it pricy and it is compared to other restaurants in this college town but the quality is also far above the others. It is comparable to what we are used to paying for better restaurants in Portland. They are creating a screened in porch space with lovely garden views and an outdoor fire pit which should be nice on a hot night. They also offer entertainment on weekend nights.

    91 South has what it takes for a fabulous romantic night out, incredible wine list with the owner Matt being very knowledgable for help with selection, a menu that is varied and sophisticated, the food was second to none and we've never been disappointed in our selections, service is warm, friendly and prompt. You never get rushed and you leave with a feeling "Wow where did the time go!". When they have live entertainment it doesn't interfere with your dining conversation. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, a truly great place to dine.
