“a good alternative”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Whenever in Maine we have made a detour to Le Domaine for its elegant rooms and fine French dining. This year the restaurant was closed so we looked for an alternative. The Crocker House turned out to be a good choice. It is an old-fashioned inn - our room was large and quiet - and there was something a bit old-fashioned about the restaurant. Although next to the ocean the principle offerings are meat, very well prepared, and served with salad and home-made bread. Service is excellent and friendly. Indeed the whole atmosphere of the inn is friendly. Before dinner (on Friday at least) there is an excellent jazz trio and singer in the lounge. No regrets about our visit and would come back, but probably not make a detour for. (The swimming pool rating below is a slip of the finger - there is no pool.)

We found this to be our best inn experience ever. Traveling with pets can be very stressful and the inn employees went out of their way to make ours feel welcome and right at home. This allowed us to relax and take in all Hancock Point has to offer. Additionally, the room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and the food was of excellent quality. We will definitely stay at the Crocker House the next time we're in Hancock area.

Our group sampled the lamb, veal, seafood pasta and steak.The seafood pasta was liked the best. My steak was drowning in a salty sauce. The potato was also very salty.
Restaurant owners, please instruct your servers never ever ask the customer if they want their change back!!! So very tacky. Instead, instruct them to say "I'll be right back with your change" .

I visited here in the Spring with my sister. The Inn is really well kept and the rooms were very nice. The food was great. The area is so pretty and you can explore to your hearts content. There is history here and the Innkeepers are keeping it sacred!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor and it was convenient and nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there this summer. Our room was very good - we were in the detached house as we needed a very large room. It was clean and homey. Breakfasts, which were included, were delicious and top notch. We also opted to have dinner there one night, which was terrific. All of the staff members were knowledgeable, friendly and fun to talk with. I actually cannot think of a negative. I recommend The Crocker House.

The Crocker House has been our favorite place to dine in Hancock. However they need to put LOBSTER on the menu for goodness sake! Their entrees are good but we have tried everything. They need to change up the menu seasonally and let us locals try something new. On our last visit our server was slow, lacked personality and ignored us more than once. Please, "a little out of the way and way out of the ordinary" needs to refresh their menu. Good food ...but we need different choices now and then.

Upon the recommendation of a local source, my husband and I set off to the Crocker House restaurant for a romantic night to share our anniversary. Upon arrival, we thought the exterior of the house was quaint. We entered the restaurant only to stand awkwardly in the doorway for about 15 minutes without anyone even noticing that we were there, despite arriving right on time for our reservation. Once we were (finally) seated we had fairly slow service. The bread was excellent, and the salad was quite tasty. They had a small menu of entrees, but we both managed to find something that we liked. My husband chose the seafood pasta. I wanted a lighter meal, so I went with the crab stuffed shrimp. When the food arrived, it was absolutely bland. No flavor to either of our meals whatsoever. Even the escalloped potatoes which looked so interesting ended up tasting like the kind from the box. We tried in vain to add a bit of salt, but the holes to the salt shaker were closed. Getting the attention of the waitress was impossible. We ate as much of our meal as we could, and took the rest home. Once back in our own kitchen we added a little white wine and seasoning, and finally we could eat it. Why did we need to reheat our food in order for it to taste good?

Needless to say, it was not the experience we were looking for.
