Ogunquit winter dining options

We're a Sandy Hook, CT family getting out of dodge by going to our happy place for a few days and looking for open restaurants suitable for a family with well behaved, eat anything kind of kids, 11 and 7. We need options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Suggestions?

    5-0 Shore Road. Get the fried pickle and any one of their Martinis.


    MC Perkins Cove

    Coffee and Pastries: Bread and Roses. If on way to main beach or marginal way.

    Hot Chocolate, Coffee, and Pastries after walking in the Cove looking for sea glass and seals: Breaking New Grounds.

      Here's a list of a few places I think are opened year round, just not sure which ones will be opened during your stay, as most of the websites weren't detailed about Christmas.

      Wells may have a few options. If you can get a hold of someone at the Chamber they should be able to guide you.

      Good luck, and do hope you are able to have a few days away from all the deep sadness that has hung over you all, and just have a couple of peaceful days in beautiful Ogunquit. Have a wonderful time.

          Please don't go to Jackie's Too. The view is terrific, but that's all. Were just there and had to send all the food back. The waitress actually argued and said we should not have ordered what we did because it's not one of their better dishes. Disgraceful and absolutely dreadful.

          If you feel like driving a few miles south, the York Harbor Inn is nice. Their menus are on their Web site.

          Cornerstone Artisinal Pizza will be open on the 23rd. There's actually more information on their FB page than their website


          I hope you and your family are doing OK.

            Thanks, and thanks to an earlier rec from Kristy, too. We went tonight for dinner, and it was great!

          Mike's Clam Shack on Rt 1, Wells can vary. It's a big, popular family place. My husband thinks they have the best fried clams.

            Thanks for the recommendation. Unfortunately, they're closed from the 23rd-25th, the days we will be in the area.
