Islesford Dock Restaurant & Gallery

Locally Sourced & Crafted with Love

 
 
 

Located on Little Cranberry Island, with
a view on the water of the fishing harbor
& the mountains of Acadia National Park.

Featuring the finest local ingredients
prepared simply and thoughtfully

It's better than an oceanfront view - it's ON the water! Enjoy fine Maine dining as you sit in the restaurant...on the dock! Once an operating fishing dock, its's been converted into a restaurant and fine art gallery and has been in operation for more than 25 years. The new owners have raised the floor and expanded the bar in order to offer more seating, and even better sunset views. The only thing better than the art and the view, is the food. Come check it out!
