The Thistle Inn is the perfect mix of fine cuisine and casual fare. We use only the freshest ingredients and everything is home made, including salad dressings, fresh baked breads and desserts. The best way to describe our food is an eclectic mix of American cuisine with a hint of international flavors. We let the availability of local produce and seafood influence the menu. Depending on the season you can find local Damariscotta Oysters on the half shell, Fresh Tuna Sashimi, Rack of Lamb, Seared Diver Scallops with Lobster Risotto and Crème Brule. Our Pub serves an 8 oz. angus hamburger, creative pizzas on our homemade foccia crust and "the best" crab cakes. We are happy to accommodate any special requests or food requirements, if possible. Just call us in advance.
The restaurant is open at 5pm
There are four dining rooms, each is unique and makes a charming setting for any occasion throughout the year. Two of the dining rooms have fireplaces that lend to the cozy ambiance during the winter and our large private front porch is a delightful place to dine while enjoying the summer evenings. Our library is also available for receptions or private dinner parties.
