A word from Katie's on Shore Road
Katie’s is a casually elegant restaurant and lounge. Although we are in the vacation destination of Ogunquit, Katie's is anything but "tourist-y". Situated in a century-old house midway between downtown Ogunquit and Perkins Cove, Katie's is a perfect respite from the hustle and bustle. Chef Jason Grant changes the eclectic menu every day, adding what is finest and freshest from the local farms and purveyors. The secret of Katie's is in the simple preparation of the freshest ingredients. Known for its delightful appetizers, salads and soups, Katie's divides it entrees into small plates and large plates. Each is an entree-sized portion. The small plates are more in the European tradition where the entree follows an appetizer, soup, and a salad; while the large plates are more in the American tradition where the entree can dominate the meal. At Katie's, each of you can select the tradition that appeals to you at that time.

  • Not good

    The food here was a disappointment I ordered the ribeye it was over cooked and under seasoned . The Peruvian potatoes were dry ,bland and tasteless . My wife got the seared scallops they were also over cooked and the rissoto was gummy. The waitress was nice and the setting was fine but the food lacked quality for the prices.

    First let me say Anya is the best, We were 6 guest all have been there several times. Saturday night will go down as a very big disappointment. Three guest ordered from the A-La-Carte menu 2 NY strips 1 Veal Chop. we were asked to choose two sides but no potatoes were available because they were running low and serving them with a fish dish!! How does a establishment run out of a simple thing like a potatoes? if you are low go to the village market and buy a 5 pound bag. I also will say the Steaks and Veal chop were the most expensive items on the menu. Just poor planning for a restaurant of this caliber.

    We were looking for a nice and romantic place to spend our anniversary, and Katie's was the perfect choice! The salad was just the right amount, and the entrees were filling. However, the best part of the meal was (maybe due to my sweet tooth) was dessert! We had Snickers Creme Brulee (it was to die for!) and Blueberry Shortcake which was mouth-watering. Would definitely recommend to anybody who wants a romantic evening in a quiet and cozy restaurant.

    Each year we travel to Ogunquit, dine at Katie's and ask for the corner table. The mango gazpacho was flavored with lime and it was one of the best soups ever! The lobster macaroni and cheese was just as good as the lobster ravioli, so we shared our meals. The portions were generous and we thought the price was very fair for the portions. Our blueberry shortcake had a homemade bisquit, but the blueberries (canned?) were a little too sweet for my liking, but it still tasted great. Our server was so attentive and the owner stopped by to greet us with a big hello.....very appreciative of our patronage. Please give this gem a try during your next visit to Maine and you will not be disappointed!

    We dined here twice while on vacation. The first time was on a Sat night-excellent waitress,great service & food. The next time was on Wed night-we had reservations for 5:15 . We arrived at 5 & were told by a waitress that new menus were still being printed & we could wait in bar & have a drink-complimentary. At 5;45 we were still in bar & went to check on situation & found other diners had been seated-they forgot us! The early bird special had 2 items-steak or eggplant-they ran out of pork tenderloin. We ordered & finally received our meals at 7:00! My husband enjoyed the steak,my Mom didn't eat her eggplant & it was removed from the bill. I couldn't believe the difference in the 2 nights-maybe a better crew on the weekends. Awful service!

    Second time at Katie's and the food was very good again. Nice quitter restaurant with friendly staff almost at Perkins cove. Parking was no problem at all and location was perfect. The service was a little on the slow side but didn't mind because the food was so good. Will come back again.

    We enjoy this restaurant for the creative starters and main dishes and the interesting blend of flavors. It is also the right size for a comfortable relaxed dining experience. The service was very helpful in describing the various dishes so we could make the right choice. The setting is relaxed but the service is professional and warm and at the same time.

    Great service, with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good cocktails and nice ambience, but food was very disappointing, especially at these prices. I had the halibut and it was completely dry and overcooked. Shouldn't a Maine shoreside restaurant know how to cook seafood? My husband had whipped potatoes with his steak and he said the potatoes tasted like instant. We visit this area about once a month, but we will not go back to Katie's.

    We visit Ogunquit every year and make it a point to dine at Katie's. Food is of good quality, staff is polished and pleasant. On this holiday weekend there were several large parties. The interior has hard surfaces;, there is not much diffusion of sound and large parties increase the noise level. Unfortunately on this visit we were first seated in a small alcove next to a loud party of four. Upon our request, we were moved to another area. While this was a more spacious area, a table of 10 was quite boisterous. Our server even had trouble being heard and ruefully acknowledged the problem. Next time we will request a table on the porch which does not accommodate large parties and is quite romantic.

    We debated about canceling but so glad we kept our reservation. They had parking (a luxury in Ogunquit); The place was nice and laid back but with great menu and service. Had the duck. Such a pleasant change from all lobster all the time. Service was relaxed and happy/concerned for our needs. A really great place. Recommend highly.

    In an area where there are many so-so restaurants, Katie's stands out. Get there early since parking is limited and snag one of the window tables. Although we were not blown away by the food, the whole package is definitely one of the better choices in Ogunquit.

    We spent four nights in Ogunquit and the best dinner by far was at Katie's. The food was well prepared and inspired, service was attentive, and the ambiance was perfect. The tables were far enough apart for privacy, the noise level was limited, and you didn't feel as though the maximum number of tables were forced into a limited space such as at MC Perkins. We hope that this restaurant makes the cut so that we can return next summer.

    I had been to Katie's on Shore Road in Ogunquit a couple of years ago and had been asked by a group of friends if I knew of a good place to go before going to the Ogunquit Playhouse. Love your site, worked like a charm. Arrived at Katie's and was greeted at the door, they acknowledged the fact that we had time constraints because of the musical and seated us immediately- we had 2 lovely girls waiting on us and we never had to look for them. The menu is quite extensive for such a quaint little place and we all had a difficult time choosing what we wanted. We finally did choose and we were all very happy with our choices, Food is delicious, service is outstanding , location fantastic. Summer in Maine, priceless.

    Tasteless overlooked, over fried trout, gray duck with gummy grain, rock hard vegetables with the pork, salad with overacidic, no blueberry hint at all. Lobster Mac decent. Has gone way down hill from one year ago - maybe why the place was empty at 8 pm the third week of August?

    Maybe we had an off night... EVERYTHING was over cooked. Ate there last year and it was excellent but this time was actually pretty bad. My wife's crab cakes were like briquettes and my scallops appeared blackened and tasteless. Bone marrow was so over cooked that there were no solids left in it...just oil. Smallest lobster I ever saw on the seafood trio...thought it was a crayfish.

    Went to Katie's for dinner with my husband and 2 teenagers. Everyone loved their food. Lovely corner table on the porch and excellent service. Only negative was a table of 3 ladies next to us that were overly loud, which made it very difficult to converse. Another table actually shushed them!

    Dined on 8/16/2013
    We had reservations but arrived about 10 minutes early. We were offered a table right away but we did not like where it was and asked for another choice. There were none available and we went to the bar and struck up a conversation with another couple. A few minutes later the hostess finds us and tells us our table was ready. She saw we were in conversation and said she would hold the table for us. We finished our drinks and went to our table with a nice view of the quaint street and pedestrians. We each had a caesar salad that was very good and our entree was a seafood trio of grilled lobster tail, roasted cherry stone clams, Katie's crab cakes & summer risotto, all excellent. In short great food, cocktails and service.

    Great location near Perkins Cove. Parking can be difficult. Quiet, clean and simple decor. Server calm, experienced and professional. Food interesting and delicious. Was there last year and the experience then was marred by a very young,inexperienced and inappropriate server. Totally different this time. Will definitely return.

    Four of us went to Katie's for our semi-annual Girls' Night Out. We split 2 appetizers and 2 desserts and everyone ordered her own entrée. The bread was excellent, I could have eaten just that and been happy. The service was very good, the timing of the food was very good. I gave it 4 stars and not 5 because the beans were not cooked enough for my taste and some of the pork was overcooked. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening..

    I was incredibly impressed when I walked into the restaurant and the waitress I had the prior year remembered me (and I remembere her)! The service is outstanding at Katie's and in an incredibly busy town at the height of tourist summer season, Katie's is a little oasis. I always get the lobster Mac and cheese, but it was just average this year. My mom started with the Panko eggplant and only ate half. I later ate her leftovers and it was just average. I order the seafood special and was incredibly disappointed that the crab cakes were slightly burnt. The rest of the special was good and my mom loved her steak. We will be back, but hope the food can improve!

    I have to say the best part of our meal was the great bread and the garlic dipping oil. My friend had the lobster mac n' cheese and loved it. I had the scallops which were good but I was not impressed with the risotto nor the roasted corn topping. I think both should have much more flavor. Our server was great and we enjoyed our meal there.
