1637 at York Harbor Inn Ratings and Reviews
I have not written a review for sometime because we have been dining out a lot this year. This time I had to make an exception. This restaurant hit all the right notes, from the original greeting by our host to the beautiful decor to our server Ian who was excellent. This place oozes charm,from the colonial structure to the lovely bay windows over looking York Harbour. This was a special ocasion for me as I had traveled back east to see my 90 year old mother and my sister who helps her everyday. I wanted something special for them and found it on opentable. The food was glorious from the cocktails to the appetizers to the main courses. I could go on but let me finish by saying if you are in this area take time to dine here. Take it from me I was born in southern New Hampshire and tried many restaurants, this is by far my favorite.
Great place - have been going here for years. The inn is not waterfront but is directly across the street - the views of the Atlantic from the restaurant are beautiful. The space is arranged so there's not a bad seat in the house. Very cozy - almost old fashioned, one of the things I love about it. Food is very good - very New England. Love lobsta? You can get it here any number of ways. Nice bar menu and great wine list. If you want something trendy, this probably isn't your place. Want something comforting, you'll love it here.
As always, YHI fulfilled all expectations. Beautiful view of the ocean, excellent wine selections, and of course the best entrees anywhere. Crab stuffed haddock baked to perfection, baked scallops and (special request) baked shrimp melt in your mouth, and a filet of beef which was perfectly cooked, tender and tasty, and large enough to share with the fish-eaters. Thank you, YHI!
Seated by a window with view of the ocean. Just perfect! Service was attentive but not overbearing. We enjoyed signature martini's and a lovely bottle of wine from their extensive wine list. The spinach salad was superb; sweet strawberries with glazed nuts and very fresh spinach. This very easily could be a full meal with added shrimp, salmon or beef. We chose another appetizer special for our main dish. It was grilled scallops with polenta. Excellent! We've been many time to the YHI and have never been disappointed.
This is such an amazing restaurant. The food is unbelievable and the service is outstanding. Their lobster mac and cheese and their lobster stuffed chicken are both phenomenal. They also have a great cocktail menu and delicious deserts (the sundae is to die for). I highly recommend this place.
This was the perfect location for meeting a client & his wife for dinner on a weeknight as it was midway. The food and presentation was excellent. Everyone really enjoyed their meal and the portions were ample. We had requested a corner/quiet table since at least one person was hearing disabled and although we were accommodated, the "corner" seating had open windows leading to the next dining area and the sound really carried. When we were shown our table, it looked cozy and inviting with an L shaped leather booth. But one end was higher than the other and the low end seat sunk down quite a bit. It was also a large table so we were further away from our guests than we would have preferred. The view was lovely for those facing the front window looking out over the ocean. All in all, it was a pleasant enough evening and the food was excellent. Would definitely give it another try.
We try to make the York Harbor Inn restaurant a family place to eat on a regular basis. The lounge background music, guitarist, is always very nice. The food is consistently very good. In fact, we have never had a bad meal there. The kitchen was a bit slow on Sunday night but, since it was a beautiful, clear night on the water, the view made up for the wait.
This was our third time at York Harbor Inn. It is a place we visit in southern Maine every summer. The food is creative and delicious and our waitress (Debbie) was pleasant and proficient. The lobster avacodo salad was fresh and colorful and the seafood pie was filled with chunks of tasty fish. We will be back as we make special memories at this great restaurant!
We arrived one hour early and the staff accommodated us. Our table had a wonderful view of the ocean, and the wine and food were excellent. We shared the crab cakes as an appetizer. I had the seafood ravioli and my husband had the lobster and avocado salad. All of the food was
delicious and the portions were appropriate and comfortable. Our server was attentive and friendly, but she also gave us space. We were not rushed through our meal at all. I look forward to returning to this restaurant and I recommend it to others.
We ordered the mussels, they were good however, the dipping bread was hard as a rock. The bread that came before the mussels was really good, I enjoyed the roasted garlic and butter that came with the brea. My husbands seafood pie was disappointing, there was no sauce thus no flavor, just the watery juice from the seafood. The "pie" was only breadcrumbs sprinkled on top. I had the steak tips, they were just okay. The price was on the high side.
