Cook's is the real Down East deal. Everything exceeded expectations, including the lobster, the Haddock sandwich and especially the blueberry pie. Fast and efficient service and reasonable prices; strongly recommend. Our only regret is we couldn't taste everything on the menu. Get there early and bring your Visa card. It's very popular, and as far as we know they still don't take American Express.

So we have been here before in the off season, last year and it was actually really decent and way cheaper- bear in mind I dont mind paying a lot for good food. The appetizers were better than our meals. The French onion soup was one of the best I have had yet, the clam chowder was decent. The chicken wings were absolutely fantastic! The Brussel sprouts were ok- a tad bit undercooked but the sauce was great! The calamari was calamari, it had a weird balsamic sauce and way too much parmigian. My fiance ordered a second beer and it never came.. The haddock sandwich was dry and thin compared to other places in the area, for twenty dollars it wasn't worth it. Now onto the lobster mac 'n cheese- I get lobster mac n cheese everywhere if its on the menu (same with the French onion soup) and it was so dry the noodles were kinda hard. I told the waitress it was dry af and she brought me out some more cheese sauce- which I split with the other person who also got the mac n cheese. I am thoroughly disappointed I paid 40$ for it. I go to Boston every year and get lobster mac n cheese at this restaurant on the water and its 30$ and BY FAR the best I've had yet. The atmosphere here is wonderful though, there was a band playing and the staff was amazing!


We enjoy this place. It has a marvelous view of the famous Cribworks bridge between Bailey and Orrs Islands. The staff was easy to work with and responded to our requests as quickly as possible. Due to staffing shortages in this summer of 2022, there is a fairly long wait to be seated and the number of empty tables which can?t be served is substantial. The food was quite good and we enjoyed our meals and especially the view!

We stop at Cook's every time we visit Maine. The food and service are both excellent. The lobster tastes so fresh! The drive out to Cook's is amazing as well with gorgeous views of the ocean. We were so pleased during our most recent visit to learn that most of the menu is or can be prepared gluten free.

It's been 40 years since we last ate at Cooks. We used to think it was the best seafood restaurant in Maine. How is it possible that it's gotten even better? This place is too good to be true, the food was delicious and the service was the best! So thankful for having a restaurant this awesome in our beautiful state

Best seafood in Harpswell, Orr and Bailey Islands. Reasonable prices, picturesque setting on the water and a great beer selection. How could you go wrong.


This place is great!!! The Lobster literally come out of the ocean and into the boiling pot. Pleasant atmosphere, very friendly staff, affordable pricing, great selections and a beautiful location! A must goto spot if your in the Harpswell area.

Great views, Great Food, Live music, what more could you ask for!! Ordered the quintessential Maine Lobster Roll at market price (about $25 at the time) and it did not disappoint. The lobster was fresh and Heavenly. We were treated with great service & hospitality.
