We were waited on promptly, but the kitchen was short on help. It took an hour to get our dinner. Food was excellent. Worth the wait, but my butt gets sore, sitting too long.

Our server was wonderful and our meal was delicious. We always have a lovely time at the OVI. We especially love the ambiance in winter with the cozy fire going. A special spot in the heart of OGT.

The lobster roll was skimpy, the prime rib only lukewarm but everything tasted very good and our waitress was excellent. Nice atmosphere.

Old and outdated. We actually didn’t stay past the appetizers. The drinks were like drinking cough syrup. The crab cake appetizer were 3 small mushy things. Service is slow but probably understaffed . Wish we read the reviews before we went. Didn’t even attempt dinner as we looked up reviews over apps. Left and went to The Front Porch which is always amazing !

Definitely didn't enjoy this dinner. Very very small lobster roll, with cold lobster meat and no mayo or hot butter. Six inch roll was toasted but not buttered. Soggy and luke warm french fries. Slow service.
Blueberry pie was microwaved!!!! Pie was thickened with so much cornstarch that you couldn't even taste the blueberries plus it was just mushy from being microwaved.

OVI Never disappoints! Quality of food and service is excellent whether in season or not. Waitstaff attention to detail is fabulous. Price for quality and quantity appropriate. When COVID is ‘over’ we’re looking to eat at the bar.

The menu sounded lovely but the food was just okay, nothing fancy. Prime rib was good. Waitress seemed rushed and therefore didn’t have a very personable experience. Probably would not go back.

The food was great. The service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry so it did not matter. Would recommend more for a couple's dinner than family place.

I had planned a trip to Maine and wasn't sure who would be open on Thanksgiving. The OpenTable app showed me this place and after reviewing the menu and reviews, I thought that it looked pretty good plus they had openings. I was not disappointed--the service was friendly and helpful, the food outstanding and a good value. It's not a pretentious place, very homey and welcoming. I would come back any time.

I went for my birthday with my boyfriend. I choose this place because I craved escargot- they did not disappoint.
Marcia was attentive and took lovely care of us.

This was our first time, will not be the last.
Espresso martinis were delicious and the escargot was tender and some of the best I have had in awhile.
Our meals were good as well! Great dining experience.

Second time eating at this restaurant. The first time was very good but this time it was great. The food was excellent and the wait staff very professional. Can’t wait to go back again. The dining room we were in was quiet well appointed and perfect for a relaxing dinner after enjoying the day in Olgunquit.

We had the best time- old school cozy building, especially the original rooms. Great service, friends folks, delicious food, reasonably priced wine. Such a good time. Don't miss the escargot and Filet.
