Since its humble beginnings seventy-plus years ago, The Sea Gull has aimed to provide respite and sustenance to those who come to see the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse or stay for a holiday here on the Point. It's a scenic fifteen mile drive from Damariscotta to Pemaquid Point down the winding Rt. 130. As you travel down Rt. 130 imagine how it was in the 1920s and 30s, bumping over narrow, winding, dusty roads in your Ford "Model T."

Many people kept livestock and much of the land was cleared along the coast and looked as though it rolled into the sea. The rugged, windswept beauty of the area has attracted sightseers and artists who've captured their photos and imaginings for decades. After an afternoon of sketching, one might stop into The Sea Gull Shop for a hot cup of tea and a cream cheese and olive sandwich while watching the surf and the rocks.

You can still get hot tea. We offer regular, herbal and decaffeinated, as well as, iced tea. We will still make a cream cheese and olive sandwich for those who request it. This remains a favorite destination to enjoy a sandwich while watching lobster boats and sail boats glide by. From anywhere in the dining room you can see Monhegan Island, a long swath of the rugged coastline and, of course, the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.

What began as a deck with a few tables and striped umbrellas has grown into an enclosed dining room seating nearly 50 people. Breakfast begins at 7:30a.m. with our famous blueberry pancakes and omelettes of all types, including fresh seafood omelettes, and is served until 12 noon. Lunch begins at 11:00a.m. Our full menu is offered at this time for those who prefer a lobster dinner instead of a grilled lobster roll. During Maine's tourist season in June, July, August, September and most of October, the kitchen staff stops cooking at 8p.m. All salads, sandwiches and entrees are prepared when ordered using local eggs, seafood and produce.

Due to a deed restriction enacted in 1885, we cannot sell alcoholic beverages. We encourage our patrons to bring their favorite beer, wine or liquor with them. We provide the glasses, garnish, ice and bucket. Also, the nearest store that sells alcoholic beverages is five minutes away, so you may place your meal order and our staff will be happy to hold your entrees.
