My husband recently returned to this Inn & restaurant after several years absence. We shared a fantastic dinner. I started with the "Swiss style onion soup". It definitely had some cream in it - not what one would expect - but it was very good....More

So glad you enjoyed the dinner. FYI, the onion soup just has a very little flour in it but no cream. It seems creamy but comes from the way he cooks/smothers the onions. Hope to see you back another time.

Come here for a special occasion. Everything is good. The specials list is often longer than the menu with wonderful vegetable from the garden. Best rack of lamb I've ever had with fresh mint sauce. And side of spicy salad greens.

We had our annual dinner with friends here and the food was delicious as always! Their house salad always includes some kohlrabi (one of my favorites) and the veal Swiss style in a mushroom cream sauce over rosti potatoes is a very satisfying indulgence. This...More

Squire Tarbox is not in the middle of Wiscasset so you have to seek it out. It's worth the short drive from town. A GPS is helpful and there are signs along the way to keep you on track. Why seek it out? THE FOOD....More

I have been to the Tarbox sever times. All meals have been great and the staff is very friendly. Pizza night on Monday nights is very fun!

Met friends during the holidays for a celebration. Reservations a must. Elegant decorations. Pricey. Food is extremely ordinary. Was extremely disappointed as we all got dressed up and expected more.More

We've been meaning to make reservations for the past 15 years, and are we ever glad we did. Service was excellent from the minute we walked in, and they greeted us by name (it's a VERY small place, and reservations only). Excellent crab cakes, filet...More

We are staying here in the B and B. It is a lovely well-maintained old home built in the early 1700's. The chef grows vegetables in the back yard which he uses in his meals. He buys from local farmers and serves healthy meals. I...More
