The staff made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We enjoyed our drinks called, “Just What the Doctor Ordered,” and our dinner was so delicious. The pork shank was falling off the bone. Thank you!

It is a lovely location, however I believe the item I ordered was not 100% fresh and as a result I ended up quite ill the next day. I will not return there.

I chose the busiest time to reserve my table, but my wait was negligible. I was seated immediately - easy because I was traveling and eating alone. Waited a little bit to order, but was not ignored. They were busy and I was patient. The meal was excellent! The steak melted in my mouth and the white truffle potatoes had an unexpected flavor that was incredible. Paired with a nice glass of Merlot and a good book made for a quite enjoyable meal alone. I would go back in a heartbeat if I didn’t live so far away!

The noise was so bad we couldn’t carry on a conversation with our friends. Two out of the three Chardonnay wines by the glass were out of stock. The food was nothing special.

The atmosphere is energetic and at times it was difficult for conversations at our table to be heard. We were seated at a table near the kitchen/bar area. I feel for the prices they charge, a table near the kitchen should not have been offered. Food was very good.

Great atmosphere. Great food, i asked the server if the fish could be cooked in another way and it was not a problem. Server ( Macie) was wonderful and very attentive. Will definitely go there again and again

Everything was so perfectly prepared. We tried everything, apps, salads, meat and seafood entrées and dessert. Everything was fabulous. Service was great. Do not hesitate to try it. The noise level is what I would call festive.

We loved our dinner at this quaint New England Inn. The menu terrific, service a bit on the slow side but we prefer this to a rush anyday and based on staffing all these restaurants are experiencing these days, was outstanding all the same!!

We saw Chef coming out at the end of service to greet his diners, such a lovely touch and a personal side which added much to the evening. The Inn is lovely and tastefully decorated. They were full, but we didn't get the sense of it anywhere.

We love Shelter Harbor Inn, and recommend it to those who are patient, and appreciate a fine dining experience.

I was excited to check this place out, firstly I will say the Inn is absolutely adorable. Lots of New England charm, very cute. The Farmhouse Kitchen experience was okay. Very young and nervous servers, but very prompt and professional. The food was subpar. Calamari was cold, chicken was over cooked and the pork entree was bizarre at best. The chowder was the highlight. The decor was outdated and the place wasn’t the *cleanest*. Our table in the back corner had clumps of hair on the radiator behind my chair. I’d try it again in a year if it was still there, I believe they are new and still getting their bearings.

Service was above fantastic. Macie was gracious and helpful. We originally sat outside but quickly realized that it was to windy and chilly of an evening. They say us inside and were beyond gracious about the ask. Some place I've been are rude about such a request. I had the swordfish special which was amazing. My wife's meal, the steak was a bit overdone and was not the chef's specialty. Drinks were great and the feel of style of the dining area was fantastic. We only wish we could have stayed and sat in their Bar/lounge area. It's setups as a individual living rooms and I could easily see sitting there chatting and drinking for hours with friends!

Meal, drinks, service and setting were all outstanding. One negative was the noise level. For a small cosy setting, it was loud. We sat on the upper level. Next time, and there will definitely be a next time, we will ask to sit near the windows and maybe it will not be as loud on that level.

Lovely setting. Food was tasty, however, with such ridiculously small portions for dinner (3 scallops and a scant half-cup of risotto for $28), this restaurant should probably advertise their meals as small plates rather than entrees.
