We stopped here after visiting the Nubble Lighthouse (right next to it). We ordered a lobster roll. Staff wrapped it up on our request as we were taking it to go. I must say it was the best lobster roll we had in Maine. Very...More

Great place to eat wonderful food while overlooking the ocean. Great whole fried clams and a friendly place for the whole family. Close to York lighthouse and afterwards enjoy Browns ice cream.

Beautiful ocean views if able to get a window seat. Seafood, fried clams and lobster, was good but portions were small and expensive for what you got. Service was good .

A couple dozen clams and a two pound lobster, what's not to love. A wonderful place right on the ocean in Maine. Our view? Why a lighthouse of course. This is the place to have dinner when in York.

My friend and I visited for lunch and share this delightful lobster dish. Each of us got a salad so sharing was perfect. I've also enjoyed their lobster roll in the past.

Lunch at Fox's was very good, the service was excellent, and considering it is in a touristy location, it was reasonably priced. the view over the water and next to the lighthouse was beautiful. It was a great little place to eat on our drive...More

This excellent seafood restaurant is a perfect spot for lunch when visiting Sohier Park to check out the famous Nubble Lighthouse, which is clearly visible from the restaurant's dining room. The prices are expectedly a bit steep given the prime location, but the food was...More

Downstairs there are just tables and the bar. Upstairs I believe there is one cushioned area along the wall--not a booth per se but one side attached to the wall (I've only been upstairs once--I don't like climbing stairs... More

Just tables. Dinner is hectic - I'd vote for a late lunch, if you can.
