The Islesford Dock  


Islesford Dock Restaurant



Welcome to 2014 - our 22th Season !


Located on Little Cranberry Island, our restaurant view is of the fishing harbor and across the water to the mountains of Acadia National Park. From the beginning, in 1993, we have featured the finest ingredients and prepared them simply and thoughtfully.

We have learned a lot, although we've never completely figured out 'low tide' deliveries.

We continue to enjoy welcoming friends, new and old, to what is essentially our summer home on the dock and sharing Islesford, this special Maine island. Along with our staff, we have the chance to be part of happy occasions, from weddings to quiet dinners for two to not-so-quiet family get-togethers. (There are an unlimited number of stones to throw on the beach.)

It really has been 'Team Dock', including both staff and guests. We have been most fortunate to be joined on this adventure with so many young people, many of whom, had their first jobs in our snack bar, bussing tables, or washing dishes.

Our kitchen staff, headed by Kirby Sholl, truly believes in fresh and simple when it comes to creating dishes. Perhaps it is the 'team' part that is the key element, but we think they should be deservedly proud of what they produce.
