Rediscover Maine dining. Native ingredients honor Maine’s indelible heritage. By partnering with local fisherman, farmers, distillers, and ranchers, The Tiller Restaurant combines the region’s distinctive culture and tradition with culinary innovation and sustainable practices for authentic and nuanced dining experiences.
Upscale contemporary design meets with charming rustic elements, combined with a bright and inviting dining destination surrounded by ocean views suspended over the cliffs. Seasonal breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are prepared with farm-fresh local produce, line-caught fish, hand cut meats , and homemade recipes passed down from generation to generation.
*Please note*
At this time, due to the large demand with in-house reservations and limited accommodations at the restaurant, during the months of July and August the restaurant will only be open for brunch for non resort guests. Apologies for this.

    Beautiful Restaurant with a stunning view. Food was very good, service also very good, and prices reasonable. Not a fan of their reservation policy of requiring a credit card and charging $75 for a no show or more than 15 minutes late, but other than that a very enjoyable meal.

    Quite pricey for quality of food. Fried rice served with scallops was dry, not much flavor. Corn and lobster chowder very good, needs less potatoes and more lobster. Ricotta gnocchi pricy but very good. Bread was fabulous. Blueberry cheesecake excellent.

    The waitress was not good at all. One of the four of us placed a drink order, and without acknowledging him, the waitress walked away. We had to flag her down to try to order the other three drinks. The same thing happened again- we had to call out “there are two more of us who need to order!” The ordering of the food was similar. Our app came about one minute before our entrees, so our table was overcrowded and the food wasn’t staged. We had to call out for a second round of drinks. Half of the food order was not very good. (Lack of seasoning all around, dry pancakes, potatoes undercooked.) The ambiance and view were wonderful, but the food and service gave no reason to return.

    Our waiter was wonderful. We got to see the ocean from the window. Food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Steak was cooked right and the lobster roll had a ton of lobster in it. The corn chowder was delicious as well.

    The view is outstanding— best I’ve ever seen at a restaurant. Overall staff was friendly & accommodating, it was just our server that day who was inattentive and not friendly. We went for brunch, my husband loved his eggs Benny. I wasn’t crazy about the crab & chorizo burrito but maybe someone else would’ve liked it. In our opinion, the brunch was overpriced for what it was. But if you’re looking for the best view you could imagine, this place is it.

    Expectations were high. I had lobster which is obviously not a challenging meal so hard to review on that meal. My boyfriend wasn't terribly hungry so just had a starter which wasn't good enough for the price tag. Our server was great, right up until he had to actually run credit cards for us because we weren't guests at the hotel. Just seemed a bit put off which was disappointing.

    We were impressed with the overall ambiance of The Tiller Restaurant. It has all of the pieces to make for an enjoyable evening out for dinner from the carefully crafted cocktail menu to the warm inviting tables by the stone fireplaces. Unfortunately, the service and food left much to be desired. The waiter was friendly, but did not tell us in advance of ordering the many dishes the restaurant was out of for the evening. For each of our three courses, we thoughtfully made a selection and then were told with a smile that they were out of that option. I’d recommend that the restaurant take off the Red Snapper special from the menu as it did not resemble any cut of fish I’d ever seen before and was unable to be cut with our steak knife. The restaurant manager and the chef agreed that it was an odd cut of the fish and offered us a replacement option since the red snapper was inedible. Much to our surprise, we were still charged for the dish. We spoke to the manager after our meal, who apologized but did not seem too concerned with our undesirable experience at the restaurant. While The Tiller Restaurant is convenient when staying at Cliff House, there are so many wonderful options for dinner in Ogunquit that I would much rather spend my time and money elsewhere.

    Some dishes were extraordinary such as oysters, polenta (side), and blueberry cheesecake. Lamb was extremely tough and even with requested steak knife cutting it was difficult at best. Pacing of the meal was awkward- appetizers arrived before cocktails. Staff does not appear to be empowered to accommodate deviations to menu. Lamb dish with aforementioned faults overpriced at $56 (price not listed on the menu).

    Staff was excellent! However, they were wrong about the price of the Tomahawk steak (went up to $195 when the bill arrived, about $20 more than expected). Your policy of not allowing clients to bring unfinished wine back for another dinner resulted in us cancelling one night later. We'd ordered a Grunier Vetliner since we expected to order lobster, then another pricey red (Chateau Montelena) when we ordered the Tomahawk steak for 2. We were also underwhelmed by the side dishes.

    We reserved a table for brunch on Sunday. The restaurant is really lovely, with great views of the cliffs and ocean. Unfortunately, the service was really, really bad. At first we weren’t sure who our sever was, as two different people took our drink and food orders. After our first drink and appetizer, no one ever came back to our table. For over thirty minutes. We had to flag someone down, who went to find our server, who didn’t return. A different person came up quite a long time later and took our main order and drinks. Our sever only reappeared much later, as we finished. We had to ask the manager for a to go box. Other tables seemed to be getting fine service. We almost left, but decided to stay. Really disappointing. Not sure I’d come again for brunch or at all. It kind of ruined the experience.

    The view here truly is phenomenal and the space is chic and well done. Sadly that’s all I can really say about it that’s super positive. The carpeted floors were filthy and full of crumbs. The table was sticky and the outside of the coffee pot they left was grimy. Brunch was exceptionally overpriced for the quality of food. I appreciated the gluten free options for my celiac child and the fact that they were brought out by someone wearing gloves, but the overall attention to detail made me nervous. There were two biting flies that also wouldn’t leave our table, which seems like a problem they should have dealt with. After we ordered, no one took our menus away until I asked. Our food was served with our clearly finished appetizer plate still in the middle of the table taking up room, and I had to ask someone to take that, too. The appetizer was served without plates, which no one brought until I requested them. Service truly left a lot to be desired. Pancakes were nothing to write home about for the price. Truly, the view is amazing, but that’s basically where it ends in terms of quality of this restaurant. Disappointing.

    Beautiful table in very well-spaced room overlooking the seaside rocks and the ocean. The term “iconic” is much overused, but there is no other suitable term to describe the view of huge Bald Head Cliff dropping down to the ocean while families scramble across the long rock area jutting out into the sea. Excellent service, as always, and very good food.

    We paid $6 for a “side of sausage” at breakfast. It came as one small sausage link. My child got the same thing from the kids menu and it was sold for $3 on kids menu. We paid $9 for 2 below average tasting sausages. The menu is VERY limited for breakfast. No French toast. No standard pancakes available to adults. For lunch or dinner head to Nubb’s in the same building for better food and value.

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to get reservations all summer. I was so looking forward to our lunch scheduled for 12:30. Last time I ate there, I had the most amazing broiled fish sandwich. I had been dreaming about this for a year. I was so disappointed to be seated with a brunch menu. My partner had the omelette board and was very happy with it. I got pancakes with blueberry butter. They were good but…the price point for 4 pancakes was a little ridiculous. Hey I enjoyed my Lunch IPA.
