We ate twice at the inn this week. The owner is a consummate host who brings great charm to the experience. The chef is a true gourmet and produces classic dishes in a rural environment. Many of the diners are yachtsmen returning on summer cruises. Brooklin is a major wooden boat building center. The bouillabaisse was chock full of local sea offerings and the halibut was superb. A not to be forgotten experience in a lovely traditional setting. Mr. Angell has touched this tiny town with grace.

A lovely Inn in a nice area. We've eaten there several times in the last couple of years, and really enjoyed it, However, our last visit on 7/3 was a bit of a disaster. We had made reservations for the advertised 'Italian Dinner for 2' , but when we got there they didn't have our reservation. Not a problem as it wasn't very busy. The dinner for 2 turned out to be a dinner for one, with an extra plate to share. The meal did not include a starter or salad so we ordered a tomato and mozzarella salad at the owners' recommendation. After waiting 20 minutes and seeing other diners who came in after us being served we questioned where our salad was. Apparently, the owner forgot to put the order in. The staff was very apologetic and very friendly, but they really seemed disorganized. We ordered desert, and after waiting 20 minutes we were told they were out of that particular desert. It will be a while before we return, probably after the summer tourist season.

On the last night of a week long visit to the Wooden Boat School I treated myself to dinner at the Brooklin Inn. The service was outstanding, and the food magnificent. As an added touch the chef came out and discussed the menu and how to accommodate a dietary restriction I am forced to live with that can make eating out difficult. I had heard good things about this place, and heartily agree with them!

We visited the Brooklin Inn for dinner, and it was a great choice! I loved the atmosphere of the old house and the proprietors were friendly. We ate in the formal dining area, but there is also a pub downstairs. The goat cheese and tomato salad was amazing! I had scallops, which were a little undercooked for my taste, but still delicious. Good meal!

We consider this our favorite local restaurant in an area of many great meals. The food is always fresh and well prepared and the service is exceptional. We have been coming here for an evening away for 15 years or more.
