Finally got to Monhegan Island...what a lovely Maine Island. The Island Inn was serving lunch in their dining room until 1:30 p.m. After a great one-hour ferry ride, we toured the island on foot...did some beachcombing, then headed in for lunch. A mice menu...adequate choices...seafood, lobster rolls, salads, burgers, and a couple of delicious homemade desserts to choose from. I had a large Caesar salad with grilled shrimp...my friend had the burger with blue cheese. Lots of fresh iced tea! We did get dessert...a beautiful blueberry cobbler type creation...just delicious. Our waiter was friendly...had a nice manner and was very polite. The views here are gorgeous and you can relax on Adirondack chairs high above the sparkling ocean. Restrooms were exceptionally clean. They also have a full bar. We would not hesitate to return next season...maybe even book a few rooms at the Island Inn. It was a lovely and relaxing experience, with a million dollar view...and delicious meals.

Coffee shop, deli, gift shop, great cookies, casual lunches, nice view of the dock, and so much more.
You can get all sorts of baked goods, sandwiches and chowders at the Barnacle. They sell beer and wine which you can't consume on the premises. But you can take alcohol to the picnic tables across the road or back to your hotel. You can dine inside or out on their small deck. The ham, cheddar and apple toasted panini was especially good.

If you want the atmosphere of a rustic sea town no frills restaurant, this is the place.
Walking up to and into the establishment you might wonder what is keeping it from collapsing but don't let that deter you from ordering.
There is only space enough for 3 - 4 people to stand while placing their orders.
The menu is very limited which is understandable. Lobster rolls are their specialty.
Weathered picnic tables with umbrellas are set up outside by the water.
When your order is ready, someone will yell your name out the window.
I believe the smell of the ocean breeze enhances the flavor of the food. Our lobster roll was packed full of meat and tasted like it was freshly steamed.

The Novelty has good food--sandwiches, pizza, and other casual foodstuff. Ideal for buying your lunch or snack and taking it on your hike to eat with a view. Beer and wine also available as package carryout.

No question about it: Monhegan House is not just the best on the island, but a fine restaurant in its own right. It's remarkable to find so talented a chef on such a tiny island. The menu changes frequently with several specials a night to keep things interesting, and there's a surprising amount of variety in the choices on the regular menu. Ingredients are very fresh and the dishes are as creative as you'd find in a foodie city on the mainland. The staff are pleasant and efficient; the original artwork by local artists (most of it available for purchase) is beautiful. Bare wooden tables and chairs, a wood stove for chilly nights, and white-curtained windows lining the walls create a charming, homey environment. We can't wait to return next year.

The Angus Burger is absolutely huge and comes with fries, of course, we got ours as take out and walked up to the lighthouse with it to watch the sunset. Didn't get fish this time. Friendly people, very casual and they told us about other stuff they do like fun tie dye tshirt workshops :)
