Ogunquit in Winter
I'm headed to Ogunquit on Monday, and I'd like to find a few nice places to eat. Most have restricted winter hours, and Monday and Tuesday meals will be tough since most places are closed both days (Jonathan's, Bintliffs, Beachhouse Grill - all closed). Can anyone make a few recommendations? I'll even drive a little to find a nice place. Did I mention that Monday is my husband's birthday?
I know there is an Ogunquit thread, but several restaurants mentioned are seasonal and/or closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Help!
MC Perkins Cove is open- beautiful view, great food, nice service. Anneke Jans in Kittery is another excellent choice-you can make a reservation on open table. However, not sure if they are closed on Monday. Roberts Maine Grill in Kittery near the shoppng centers is very good although touristy. I would check with all places to see if they are open on Monday/ Tuesday but they are open in off season.
I would have to agree with the Joshua recommendation, especially for a nice birthday dinner. MC's in Perkins Cove is a restaurant that I have frequented on many occasions, however, I find the food to be inconsistent. It is true that it is a beautiful restaurant, and the views are spectacular, but I often found the bar menu to be better than the dining room menu. Even with that consideration, I found it to be inconsistent. As an example, my last order for fish cooked in parchment arrived without the fish in the parchment. I had to show our waiter and waited for another meal to arrive.
I also like Anneke Jans in Kittery a great deal and that, too, would be an excellent choice.
Good Luck and enjoy your dinner.
There are a few places in Ogunquit and Wells that are open year round or at least almost year round, There is a nice place called Varano's on Mile Rd. in wells,(http://www.varanos.com/) An Italian restaurant, very nice my wife and I have eaten there a few times in the past. The Old Village Inn, in downtown Ogunquit (http://www.theoldvillageinn.com/) There is a steak place also located on Mile Rd. in Wells (http://www.wellsbeachsteakhouse.com/) I believe that both of these are open thru the winter season. Check the web sites , I'M sure the hours and dates are listed. If not the phone numbers are available on there web sites.. Good luck, and I hope this helps you a little Earle Ct.
