MC Perkins Cove

111 Perkins Cove Rd.
Ogunquit, ME, 03907, United States
TEL: (207) 646-6263

Chefs/partners Mark (“M”) Gaier and Clark (“C”) Frasier of the esteemed Ogunquit restaurant Arrows opened this seaside bistro in quaint Perkins Cove in 2006—welcome news for locals and out-of-staters who want to sample their cuisine (and produce from the duo’s renowned garden) but not spend a fortune. And their more casual dining option is proving to be a big hit, surely due in part to MC’s prime setting on a rocky jut of land surrounded by ocean. With wraparound picture windows in the two main dining rooms, there’s not a bad view in the house. The diverse menu features classic coastal dishes like “milk and haddock” chowder alongside more far-flung options—deep-fried sesame-coated mussels, Balinese ground chicken satays, and mezze platters. Even the bar snacks—garlic and exotic spice-dusted peanuts—hint that Mark and Clark bring a little something different to Maine’s often staid dining scene.

Insider Tip:

Given the foot traffic at Perkins Cove, reservations are essential for avoiding a long wait for a table. While you’re at it, request window-side seats overlooking the wide-open waters of the Atlantic.
