The Seagull Gift Shop and Oceanfront Restaurant

Welcome to the Seagull Website

The Seagull Gift Shop and Restaurant is located where the land of the Pemaquid Pennisula ends, just 14 scenic miles south of Damariscotta, ME. Lobster DinnerOur front yard is the rugged, beautiful, rocky Maine coast. Our next-door neighbor is one of the most photographed spots in the world, the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. You can take a break from your explorations of Lighthouse Park to stroll over to the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy it amidst this spectacular scenery. We offer fresh seafood, local eggs and garden-fresh fruits and vegetables and, of course, for breakfast you owe it to yourself to try our world-famous blueberry pancakes. The Gift Shop carries souvenirs, nautical items, photos and paintings, and fine gifts to recall a visit to the ocean, Maine, and Pemaquid Point. Many of our items are hand crafted by Maine artisans. And, on many summer days you may meet one of our craftspeople as they demonstrate their craft and display their artwork on the lawn of The Seagull.

Trust us: No vacation in Maine is complete without a visit to Pemaquid Point!
