The only restaurant directly on Long Sands Beach in York Beach, Maine.


The Sun and Surf Restaurant has been a family-run business and a fixture on York Beach since its inception in 1963. Locals joke that it seems as if half of York Beach has worked there at some point in their lives, boiling lobsters or taking orders for fried clams through their summer vacations. In 2013, the Sun and Surf celebrated its 50th season of operation under the same family.

The Sun and Surf offers seating at 3 outdoor patios and 1 dining room, seating over 250 together. In the busy summer months, Sun and Surf opens the takeout window for beach goers looking to enjoy fried clams, lobster rolls and locally made extra creamy Maine made ice cream and frappes. 

We are open on weekends from February to May and then daily in the summer.
