Overlooking scenic Northeast Harbor, the restaurant at The Asticou Inn offers a classic setting for a coastal Maine dining experience.
At the Asticou-Inn, we are inspired by fresh ingredients from the coast of Maine. Chef Emily Damon works with local farmers, foragers, and fishermen to provide a true taste of Maine. Enjoy friendly, engaging service while indulging in our famous popovers, overlooking the picturesque views of Northeast Harbor.

    It was difficult to get a reservation so I expected the restaurant to be packed. Instead, we experienced an extremely well-executed dinner service with lots of space between diners and attentive wait staff. The Asticou obviously values it’s reputation for outstanding service and is limiting reservations to make sure that service is not sacrificed. Absolutely phenomenal evening!

    Wonderful space. Has outdoor, indoor, barstools, and dining area proper. Menu and view are fantastic. Made a reservation, but showed up 30 minutes early and we were seated. Our server was knowledgable, fantastic, courteous, and made wonderful recommendations. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    The history is nice and there are good views from the deck. However on the day we were there for lunch the bees were so prevalent we had to move inside. They did forewarn us. The food was good though not exceptional.

    After reading a majority of good reviews, we thought this would be a great spot for a birthday dinner. The lobster Mac and cheese gnocchi is so heavy which made it difficult to eat. If it was made with a light garlic butter with the lobster it would be 100x better. Not to mention the flavoring seemed off with huge pieces of parmesan. The only thing that saved our meal was the delicious lobster stew otherwise it would have been a complete disappointment.. however I still wouldn't recommend eating here. Not worth the money.

    Enjoyed my lunch at the inn. Service and food were great. Pleasant atmosphere and service with a smile AND with a beautiful view! Blueberry Mojito was to die for! Popover was wonderful without the aggravation of waiting in the longline at the Jordan Pond house.
