Cruised the beach on a rainy day and stopped at Nubble Light. On way back York went to lunch - been there before on last trip. Lobster roll was outstanding and can't beat the view. Service is great. We'll be back next trip.

Out on the deck at twilight with a circle of LED light attached to the umbrella pole... Lobster in front of me... It doesn't get any better than this! Wait staff is always friendly, service is prompt, food is delicious (my husband tries other things on the menu... I stick with lobster.) The view? OH, MY! On an incoming tide!!!

My wife had a 1 1/4 lobster which she said was very good, but not the best. I had the baked stuffed haddock which was very good. We also had the Oreo pancakes and the shipwreck special for breakfast, both were excellent, and way too much food.

One of the great locations; it is literally ON Long Sands Beach in York. I expected New England Shore dinner which is part of the menu, but when I saw Broiled Seabass there was no question. There was something wrong with it. Hyper salty, I eventually concluded it wasn't seabass at all, The plate was overdecorated and the fish was... More

Wow, this place is great. Its the only restaurant right on York Beach with a perfect view. Food was great and the staff were very nice. I cant figure out why this place isnt jam packed every hour of the day!

You can't beat the seaside setting of this place. It is bright and airy inside- not exactly cozy- but nice for lunch. The food was not anything to remark about and was rather boring. Service and location good

I was there with my wife and a friend. Food was very good, came out quickly. Was mid-afternoon, not too busy. Somewhat expensive. Service is good, but the waitress asked me several times if I was done when I wasn't. Don't understand why- no need to turn tables.

We go for the view. Service and food are mediocre but you can't beat the view or the "walk off desert" trip advisor wants me to say more but the there is nothing about this place that says more than average unless you consider the view.

After a day in York and a late afternoon visit to Long Sands Beach, I went for a light meal to Sun & Surf which is about the middle of Long Sands Beach. It was a picture-perfect, blue-sky day of 85° F and low humidity so I requested and got a table outside on the patio. The atmosphere was great... More

We went to Sun & Surf for breakfast this morning. The food was okay, wishing the menu was more flexible, letting us order just 1 pancake. Seemed like the place is being ran by unfriendly teenagers. When we walked in, was were shown our table by a friendly hostess. Then we waited for about 5-7 minutes, if not longer, before... More
