We love The Brooklin Inn--not only the food which is "gourmet hearty" and uniformly excellent across our many meals there over at least 10 visits in all seasons, but also the accommodations which are 'just right,'comfortable, and restful.

We were just looking for something open for dinner late in the season (Sept. 30), so were grateful you were open. Then, what a meal! The oysters were wonderful, and excellent chicken schnitzel, and pork meatloaf. We appreciate that you are trying to be sustainable, and paying living wages to your staff. Thank you for a fine meal!

Everything was wonderful. The only problem was that we were not informed that the tip was included so our waitress got a double tip. Even the bill left a line for tip which is really deceiving.

First time at the Brooklin Inn and loved it. Only comment I have is a minor one. I ordered an heirloom salad to start (which was a wonderful mix of tomato and greens) and an entree of the chicken schnitzel which was equally as good. The schnitzel also came with greens as a side. If I had known I would have ordered the fries (and held the greens). No biggy - next time I'll know. Can't wait to return in a couple weeks. Your wait staff and dining area were great.

This is an old, historic inn. It is not luxurious, but full of character and a feeling of come in and make yourself fat home ambience. The views are exquisite and the sunrise over the islands in Herrick Bay our to Acadia is breathtaking. Nothing fancy, but a wonderful breakfast is served and the innkeeper the help are charming.

Beautiful, spare, minimalist and welcoming aesthetic. Very appealing. Great service. Delicious food, though the mussels were tiny! And it was difficult to have an easy conversation at certain moments because of the noise level in the room. I will definitely return as I really liked the vibe and the excellent food and service.

We had our meal at The Brooklin Inn on a hot Tuesday. We sat outside at the picnic table and enjoyed our delicious burgers and fries and drinks. Had we arrived earlier we would have visited the awesome pub in the basement. Waitstaff was delightful and swift. The food was delicious (I regret not ordering all three dessert options!). I look forward to returning soon!

Delightful! Really nice staff and service and the food is very good. They use manly local ingredients and high quality ingredients. We ate inside and it is simple yet charming environment. Outside is great for warmer weather in their gardens.
