Oarweed Restaurant – Ogunquit, ME

Work & Travel

Company Description and Location: 

According to legend, Ogunquit was named by the Abenaki tribe, because the word means “beautiful place by the sea”. Those of us who are fortunate to live, work or play here agree with this ancient assessment. We all have different reasons for finding Ogunquit beautiful – some love the salty-sweet scent of beach roses on sea breezes wafting along the Marginal Way walking path, some enjoy playing tag with the lapping incoming tide as the sand caresses their bare feet, while others enjoy the nostalgic village feel of strolling among quaint buildings, coves, and pedestrian bridges throughout town.

The perfect summer spot is home to a great group of people. We all came to this spot driven by its view. The allure of the rocky coast and the surf of a quickened Atlantic are the draws. Many of us have been here for decades, some of us as many as four decades. Breakaway, “Jaws” and the theme song of a lifetime. Back to us, we aren’t siblings but feel like family. Lots of babies and grandbabies, we are! Without a pause, Oarweed always seems like a reunion and feels like home.
