Great food but expensive. The food was really good but the waitstaff took a long time to get to us we waited at least 20 minutes before being waited on.

I loved the atmosphere of this restaurant, very New England in decor. Chock full of lobster and scallops, my meal was excellent. Though our waitress was very friendly, I believe she was stressed because every table was full, and I think there was a shortage of staff. My husband had ordered asparagus. A substitution of egg plant was made, but the waitress was unable to come back to our table when we were eating for him to ask about the switch. We did not know if it was unavoidable or if a mistake had been made. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling in the York area.

This was our first time there for a quick getaway at the York Harbor Inn and we made reservations at this restaurant because it was part of the inn and we didn’t have to leave to have a meal. The atmosphere was nice, the food was delicious and the service was great ! The price of the food on the menu was not too expensive. We had appetizers, drinks and our meal for under hundred dollars . I will definitely go back again when I’m up in that area !

We chose this restaurant based on a prior New Year's Eve spent in their lovely dining room. Unknown to me, this year was a priced fixed menu that cost us $250 for 2. What was most disturbing was that we were seated n an overflow room, which was miserably quiet..not what we had in mind for a New Year's Eve dinner. We were forced to listen to the dreadful conversation of the party of six next to us. We never got our intermezzo course, nor dessert. We were told to go upstairs for dessert but all the tables were reserved and no dessert was in sight. A very very disappointing experience.

Food was really good. I wouldn't say it was great. Appetizers were better than the main course. Asparagus could have been cooked a little more. Scallops were over cooked. Flourless chocolate cake wasn't that great. Drinks were great. Appetizers were really good. We sort of wishes we just stuck with the appetizers instead of ordering apps and entrees. Service was very good. Inn and restaurant were super cute. If we went back, we would just get appetizers and drinks and probably sit at the bar.

We absolutely loved our entire dining experience at 1637 at York Harbor Inn! We arrived a bit early for our reservation, yet were pleasantly welcomed and went downstairs to the bar and enjoyed a drink in the stylish ship environment. When seated upstairs for dinner, we loved all items we chose to share: lobster & corn chowder, seared tuna, strawberry spinach salad, and the osso buco!!! And service was outstanding!

A mixed bag. My wife started with a beet salad that was extraordinary and I had a seafood chowder that was loaded with seafood. But the entrees...my wife ordered Beef Brochettes done medium and received rare beef, I ordered Seafood Ravioli that came with overcooked shrimp.

View and ambience alone are worth the visit. Prices on the higher side of average, but not expensive. Quality of foid is good, but some if the dishes seemed to be prenafe and warmed up, drying out the food. This was noticed on the appetizers and side dishes, not the main courses.
I had the sea food in a broth over pasta. Was wonderful, but portion was small. Service was great at desk but average at table. Could use more attention to changing silverware and plates with appetizer and main courses.
I loved the place and will likely return.

We visited the restaurant twice during a short stay (mini-moon) in York. Saturday the hostess, waiter, and back of the house were all aware of the food allergies of my wife and we had an excellent dinner. This review is really of the second trip. The hostess, recalling us from Saturday, was aware of my wife's food allergies. We don't know if this information was relayed to the waiter, but we did inform him of the same to ensure an issue free dinner. The waiter wrote nothing concerning my wife's allergies. We took this as a bad sign, but some waitstaff don't and recall everything just fine. We placed our order, which appeared to get lost, as people who ordered after us received their meals first. My wife's plain haddock was delivered with bread crumbs. Since gluten was one of my wifes listed allergies, this was not good. The waiter offered to have it made again, we declined, as we could not fathom how plain haddock, with a baked potato could have gotten screwed up. We paid our bill with a minimal tip and left. Service was terrible. The waiter we had on Monday was terrible. No manager came to apologize. Overall a terrible experience this time. Not going to rush back.

We stayed overnight in the Inn so were able to enjoy two meals - both incredibly good. Basic bread basket served first with roasted garlic and oil spread. We both had the 8 oz filets the first night - cooked exactly as asked for (which is a nice change from most places which over or undercook meats), with lightly roasted asparagus and polenta as sides. Polenta a nice change from mashed potatoes, lightly seasoned, buttery and overall wonderful flavor. Second night - Korean Salmon - once again cooked to perfection served with a lightly season rice and roasted asparagus. Servings were a healthy-size with a simple beautiful presentation. For guests staying over, there is a complimentary full breakfast buffet. Nothing better than enjoying breakfast with an ocean view.

We love this place! But things were a little off on our last visit. A skunk outdated bottle of beer for one, a flat beer from the tap on another, had to wait quite a while for drink replacements, then they ran out of bread and had to wait for Some to thaw, all very off from the normal. Wasn’t a great night but we will be back and how this was one off night.

Had the seafood chowder which was a 10/10. One of the best chowders we had on our trip. Had a special of the night which was a scallops dish cooked perfectly; had a surprising apple and pear and butternut squash added to it but was a perfect compliment. Had flatbread with lobster which was okay and could've probably skipped to be honest. Great experience overall. Great service, and would definitely recommend.

We've been to this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. The food was outstanding, service was excellent and and the prices are reasonable for this type of restaurant. Without a doubt they serve the best seafood chowder. Their garden salad was fresh, tasty and not drowning in salad dressing. The special that evening was a dish of scallops, sweet potato ravioli in a cream sauce that was to die for. While we didn't order dessert, they do provide a sweet ending of home-made toffee with the bill. (Yum!) Just a wonderful meal to cap off a very nice day on the coast of Southern Maine. We will be back!

The food was good, except for the daily special, fried oysters. These were way undercooked. The batter was still wet and the texture was horrible. The portion size was also small, but that is probably a good thing for this particular dish. The location of the restaurant and the wine list were both excellent. The Red Schooner and Belle Gloss wines from Wagner were priced at only slightly above retail. The view and beverage selection would draw me back for an evening drink, but the suspect kitchen staff would cause me to eat elsewhere.
