The Surry Inn

Fine Dining in a Casual Atmosphere

Linen tablecloths and napkins, candles, flowers and a spectacular view make for an elegant dining experience but you needn't put on your best manners. Relax with fine wines and perfectly mixed cocktails and explore our menu. Chef/owner Peter Krinsky says of his menu, "It started out French and then wandered around a little." On any given night you will find fresh halibut or haddock, Atlantic salmon, huge Maine sea scallops. The menu includes traditional specialties such as the Steak au Poivre Bordelaise, original recipes like Scallops with Almonds and Mango and dishes you won't find anywhere else such as the Spicy Garlic Frogs Legs
