Always enjoyed this place, but this time I was disappointed with my lobster roll. The meat was really soft and mushy. Not firm and fresh. Everything else was great. Onion rings ,salad and fried oysters. I really should have sent it back. I'm sure that...More

We ate at this restaurant twice in one week. Both times with great service and great food. Try the sweet potato fries. All seafood items very good. Service excellent. Try the lobster Bloody Mary it has a full tail on it.

We like Morse's a lot and make sure we are there early enough to find parking and get a table. Morse's is consistently good. The food is very well prepared; fresh and plentiful; and a very good value. We love going there.

Love this place - our favorite since moving to Harpswell last year. The food is great (haddock sandwich and lobster roll, in particular) and the staff is fantastic. We know most of them by name and they're all friendly and accommodating. Hope no one else...More

We stopped here at noon on a Friday of a holiday weekend, and were surprised to find it already packed. The service is fabulous and the food always a dream. The restaurant is very small and the staff very friendly. I had a lobster BLT...More

We ate at Morse's Cribstone Grill two times on a recent trip to Bailey Island. I ordered the Haddock Dinner both times and loved it. The fish was flaky and moist. The french fries and the coleslaw were also very good. The restaurant is larger...More

Sadly we don't grill outside at this location as there isn't space. Our wharf is beautiful spot for a Shipwrecked Margarita though even without a grill. Hope to see you soon!

Seasonal, hard to staff year round, most staff return to school or teaching jobs, lose too much money on snow days in winter. Other places use 'foreign labor' and their work permits only last so long.

Not many vegan choices except a delicious house salad (minus the feta cheese), but packed with berries, oranges and pecans. We also have tasty sweet potato fries, steamed corn on the cob, & onion rings. Hope that helps!
