This past week, Stu visited Jonathan’s Restaurant. Close to the Meadowmere, Jonathan’s is onsite and is family run. Known as the local steakhouse in Ogunquit and a favorite for good cooking, Stu revisited this Ogunquit classic to make sure it was up to snuff. Here is Stu’s Review!:
"From the beginning, Jonathan’s got off to a great start. The greeting at the door was excellent – friendly and welcoming. For those of you unfamiliar, the decor as you walk through is pleasant, though slightly sparse. The layout of the table is simple and clean. T o give a basic description of the food served would be to say steak and fish – warm comfortable food.
For this occasion, I selected the Shrimp Cocktail to start and kept the fish theme going with the Chilean Sea Bass for an entree. I also enjoyed their Wedge Salad, which was delicious. Finally, suffering from a bit of a sweet tooth, I couldn’t resist the Bread Pudding – Yummy.
The service was great – timely, friendly and each plate arrive just right. With the ambiance and menu of Jonathan’s, I’d recommend this Ogunquit restaurant to couples and families (there is a kids menu). And after this meal – happiness abounds!"
Overall, a Stu Review of 5 out of 5!
