Pier 77 + The Ramp Bar and Grill

Located on the stunning Cape Porpoise Harbor, both Pier 77 + The Ramp Bar and Grill offer unparalleled Maine views, and delicious food and drinks. During lunch, you can watch the lobstermen motor in and row to the dock in their dinghies, while the sun sets in the evenings painting the entire harbor bright hues of magenta, pink, and purple. The Ramp is known for a more casual fare, and features items such as lobster rolls, fried clams, fish and chips, burgers, and spaghetti and meatballs. Open right through the day, expect a bustling scene, where locals and tourists alike come together to enjoy Guinness on tap or a cocktail on the water’s edge. The more formal Pier 77 offers fresh and creative fare in a serene setting.
