We vacationed in Maine and stayed at the hotel several days. One night while we have dinner it was raining out. The rain looked like snow In the spot lights outside the building over the ocean - it was a surreal view in August. It leant to the overall ambience which proved to be an elegant dining experience.

We had dinner there, myself and three friends, we had so much fun and it was the BEST meal I have ever eaten! We all ate ever single thing on our plate, I had the filet I cut it with my fork! Not kidding! We laughed, ate slow we were not rushed, had an amazing view, I could not say enough about our dining experience, I will say I have been there many times before and did not feel the same way, not sure if they changed something this year, but if u stay at the chill house and have not been happy with the restaurant and go elsewhere to eat, give them another try I'm sure u will be more than pleased! The breakfast buffet is also amazing! And u will love the people they are so sweet,kind, helpful, constant do u need anything, can I help you?

SpecialBirthday dinner for my wife.
What a seaside gem. Beautifully decorated dining room. Elegant but warm and friendly. Every table has a full view of the waves crashing onto the rocks right below your window. We both had the Halibut daily special with a blueberry drizzle. Delicious! Good wine list fairly priced. Our waitress was a professional. Attentive but not intrusive. Definitely go back!

We had a lovely Mother's Day brunch at the Cliff House dining room! We were seated right by the window with a beautiful view of the ocean and rocks. The buffet brunch was delicious with a variety of choices and everyone (ages 10 to 75) found their favorites. Our wait staff was attentive. We will come again!

On the upscale price side
Meal was enjoyable but a bit too pricey except for a special occasion. Breakfast however was nicely priced with a good standard buffet and again, perfect service.

Very good food -amazing view
I have been to the Cliff House dining room many times. I've never had a bad meal...That said, I wouldn't say that the food was absolutely amazing. I had a vegetarian special that was very good --tofu with balsamic glaze over red roasted pepper polenta with baby bok choy and roasted tomatoes. My husband had a surf and turf -- he likes meat cooked rare, and the kitchen did prepare it that way and he had no complaints. Again, not amazing though. The chocolate croissant bread pudding was light and fluffy and a good recommendation for a chocoholic. The wait staff was very kind and prompt. The view is wonderful - right on the ocean, overlooking Bald Head Cliff. We were seated at a window.

Wow...what a place
My wife and I went there during our vacation in Ogunquit. Everything about the place was 1st class. We had a great table by the window...views were amazing. Food was great (be sure to get their clam chowder). A must place to go when vacationing in the area.

My daughter just turned 20 this summer and we are so looking forward to celebrating her 21st next summer we bring a group of anywhere from 15 to 20 people each time we go and it's always amazing day thank you for having such a great place ! :)

5 stars all around. I have
5 stars all around. I have dietary needs so I emailed the chef ahead of time. The chef staff came to the table to tell me what he was preparing to be sure I'd be happy with the choice. Everyone was excellent.

The views of the ocean are absolutely breathtaking. The dining experience was lovely and the food was very good. Our waitress was kind and friendly. The grounds are wonderful too. Only drawback and surprising so was the pool water did not look inviting and clean. Outdoor maintenance was a little slacking. But overall, would definitely go back.

Wonderful evening of dining.
Excellent food and service. Gorgeous views of the ocean. Actually it is spectacular.

The atmosphere of the fireplace
The atmosphere of the fireplace overlooking the ocean from our table made a memorable day in Maine.The house special that night of "surf and turf" was beyond any description.The entire experience would be the reason we will return year after year.What a class act. Thank you for creating memories.

We requested and were given a table by the window overlooking the ocean. In my opinion, no better view in the world! We were delighted to watch the full moon rise over the water; it was something we'll always remember. Our appetizers were really good, great portion size and good taste and presentation. Our entrees were OK; mine was a little bland and my husband's fish was overcooked, but honestly we didn't come here for the food, we came for the view.

Great View and Superior Service
Our table for four overlooked the ocean, the service was terrific (Niomi) and the food superb. We plan to return and spend a weekend there.

Well worth the trip.....
The food is very good, but you don't' go there for the food. You go, and love it, for the atmosphere. Fireplace. Large windows facing the ocean. Surf crashing on the jagged rocks below you. Beautiful. But again, the food and service are very good. My only real wish is that the wine list was improved a bit.

We spent a too short weekend at the Cliff House, but loved every minute and had an excellent meal! Service was perfect, the food was delicious and we recommend it to anyone considering a stay at the Cliff House. I went here several times as a teenager with my grandparents and it lived up to all my memories!

We were seated near a gas-powered fireplace, at a window seat that overlooked the ocean crashing against the cliffs below us. As the sun went down, spotlights lit up to allow us to continue to watch the water crash below us. The huge lobby and the comfortable bar provided us with an elegant after dinner drink. Simply awesome!

We headed to the Cliff House on a beautiful Autumn day. The scenery was great. Our first stop was at the bar for a before dinner drink. The bartender was very friendly and even let us know when we could go into the dining room. Once we were in the dining room the waiter was right there to take our order. We both had the sirloin steak , which was cooked to perfection, We had requested a window seat and the view was spectacular.

Special visit to the Cliff House
This was our first time to visit the Cliff House. The menu was excellent with entrees for everyone, vegetarian, fish with a
focus on Maine. A great selection of appetizers also. We booked an early dinner so we were the only diners and had a table overlooking both the cliff and the ocean. As we ate the full moon came up over the horizon. Very special!
