“Feast on bouillabaisse at the Pentagoet Inn”
“Great meals, grand visages in Castine, Maine”
“…you can dine in the intimate and classy restaurant that serves artful platefuls of local seafood and fish. Caution: their bouillabaisse may cause French visitors to weep with envy”
-The Lonely Planet Guide to New England
“The Pentagöet is one of the livelier spots after dark in Castine, a wonderfully uncluttered town perched on Penobscot Bay. Both nights of our stay, the bar was crowded and the dining room filled to capacity. We snagged an 8 p.m. reservation for dinner on Saturday, the last available for a late-in-the-day request. We were glad to have gotten it. The grilled scallops were jumbo-sized and flavorful, with a hint of anise; the slow-cooked lamb shank was tender. For dessert, we chose mango sorbet, so fresh tasting that we asked if it was made on – site, it was. Breakfast was another lovely meal”
The Baron Pub and Wine Bar
A cozy, old world hideaway with a small oak bar, the pub is an eclectic, ceiling-to-floor mix of vintage photos, paintings and memorabilia from travels abroad. An early watercolor of Venetian gondolas hangs between a three-foot oil of Lenin unearthed in a Tajikistan flea market and a large sepia portrait of Gandhi, courtesy of the Indian embassy in Zaire. Our Maine bar was featured on the Travel Channel!
Furnished with antiques, Malaysian rattan, empire sofas and slowly turning ceiling fans, it’s a room that celebrates storytelling and adventure. It fits well in a town whose colorful history is rich with political upheaval and foreign intrigue.
The Baron Pub and Wine Bar is the perfect place to start your evening with a glass of wine or one of our signature cocktails. There is an extensive wine list, local and international beers, and a full bar. The pub has several tables for dining as well as late evening desserts and perhaps a “wee dram”.
The Pentagoet, and specifically The Baron Pub and Wine Bar, was recently featured in the Maine Magazine article “Castine by Pentagoet”. The article’s author Sandy Lang writes, “I’ve long been intrigued by the Pentagoet and, particularly, its appealing first-floor pub…[we] decide to remain in this room for the rest of dinner talking of explorers, elites, scientists, czars, and scoundrels”.
