Led by Executive Chef Marsh Elliott, our culinary team prioritizes eating local by utilizing produce from Chebeague Island farms and our own kitchen garden, as well as lobster and mussels caught right offshore.

Our menus change seasonally, and feature casual upscale fare that makes the restaurant perfect for both a regular night out or a special occasion.

We offer snacks and cocktails from 5:30-8pm on our porch, making it a great gathering spot for anyone with guests, out for the day on the boat or meeting up prior to dinner. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets
from the porch, and relax with a craft cocktail or a glass of wine from our carefully curated wine list.

                                We loved all our dining experiences during our weekend stay - all the extra touches added for our special celebration were very much appreciated. However, the restaurant manager, Ryan's guest service skills were clearing lacking and that is putting it mildly. Fortunately the rest of the Inn's team were delightful!

                                Wonderful relaxing meal - attentive service. A bit pricey for what it is given the remote island location. But still wonderful.

                                You may only be able to get to this slice of food heaven via ferry or boat, but it is definitely worth the trip. The view alone makes it worth while. The service, food and drinks were excellent and we will absolutely be going back.

                                We went for lunch and there's like 8 things on the menu, two of which are apps, 1 salad, 1 soup and the most overpriced (for what you get) lobster roll ever. Very little lobster meat for $31 with a bunch of filler. Who does that? No one....a lobster roll is a lobster roll....if you know you know. Desert was good but our waiter disappeared too many times and when it came time to pay the $250 bill for 3 people, there wasn't even an itemized receipt. Drinks were great and the ambiance was great as well, just don't expect much for lunch.

                                Our menu is limited because we believe in serving local products, cooked well. I can assure you our Lobster Roll has nothing but 7 ounces of lobster, aioli, as well as herbs and spices on a beautifully toasted bun. Served with fries or a side salad. There is absolutely no "Filler." Chebeague Island Inn's lobster roll is bangin'. If you know, you know.

                                Staying at the Chebeague Inn. As there are no other restaurants on the island we ate there twice. Food was excellent, great chef! Definitely the best feature at the inn.

                                We had a lovely anniversary dinner on the porch. Beautiful (albeit, chilly) night. Food was terrific, there was a small wedding party ongoing which added some noise/distraction but I'm all for joy and love.

                                Great evening for my wife and I. We took the Ferry from Portland and the restaurant sent a van to pick us up as well as drop us off after dinner. The service all evening was excellent and our meal was also very enjoyable. We had the scallops and cod as our main courses and both were delicious. Overall a very unique and fun evening as part of our first visit to Maine. We highly recommend visiting this restaurant when in the area.

                                The Inn has beautiful setting for dinner, but what has recently changed is the food. It is fantastic. This might have been one of the best meals I have ever had. You cannot go wrong with the Chebeague Island Inn.

                                Even though the four of us live in the Portland area, it was an exciting evening for all of us to take a boat ride on a beautiful afternoon/evening and have dinner at the Inn. The food was over the top delicious to the point that we asked our waitress to see what one of the sauces was that was served with the salmon. Excellent from beginning to end and our waitress was the sweetest ever. Thanks Karen And Alan Ricker and Ted and nanette Wirth

                                The Inn is a great "treat meal" on the island. Can NOT beat the view! The food and service are of a consistently good standard and they coped beautifully with an increase in party size. We look forward to going every year.

                                We had grilled salmon with cous cous and beets that were amazing. Also a chicken,eggplant and pepper dish that had a unique combination of spices and flavor. The chicken was so soft and tender. The setting is spectacular out on their front porch overlooking the water!

                                Going to Chebeague Island Inn used to be an opportunity to go back in time and enjoy a beautiful setting with good food, but in the past few years it's the special setting and outstanding food as well. Very impressive job by the chef and wait staff.

                                I believe the menu must be abbreviated due to the pandemic and workforce shortage. I see they have their menu online so I wish I would have checked. It was very expensive to come over on a water taxi and I think until they are up and running full force again, would rather go somewhere else on the Mainland. Service was incredibly slow too but again, I know we are facing a national labor shortage.

                                Wonderful. Moored boat out front and then spent night on boat after dinner. Watched beautiful sunset and sunrise.

                                Wonderful service! Menu has few options, and sides are exclusive to specific meals, which was limiting. The food that we ordered was delicious, and a little expensive but that's the price for local produce and meat, especially on an island. Only complaint was that you couldn't mix and match sides (some looked better than others).
