Sea Glass Restaurant at Inn by the Sea offers an unsurpassed Maine dining experience with spectacular ocean views from its intimate waterfront dining room or al fresco deck, just ten minutes from Portland Maine. Chef Andrew Chadwick marries the freshest local ingredients with a focus on health and taste to create "intelligent" cuisine that offers full flavor while retaining nutritional value in preparation.
Alongside local produce from nearby Portland Maine farms and lobster tasting menu, Executive Chef Andrew Chadwick's day boat catch and evening menus feature underutilized seafood fresh from Maine’s coastal waters. The Chef, working with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, identifies abundant and delectable fish from the Gulf of Maine that are under-appreciated. The chef pairs sustainable seafood with fresh produce, meat and poultry from local farms whenever possible in a true celebration of Maine fare.
Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, Sea Glass Restaurant is open year-round and welcomes both hotel and public guests to enjoy waterfront dining. Larger parties are invited to reserve the Cove Room, our Private Dining Room for parties of nine to twenty. The Cove Room offers a seasonally changing Chef's Tasting Menu.
