Glorified Truck-stop with good food, fair price, and friendly service. Great place for a family sit down meal. The Ruben was fantastic and make sure you leave room for a piece of pie for desert. You can skip the onion rings and the gift shop.

A Maine establishment, known for its generous portions of comfort food in family-style seating, Dysarts is the go-to place for the hungry traveler. We were heading North on I-95 and hadn't eaten here for some time, and decided to stop for lunch. We found an empty booth, opting for it rather than the long wooden tables, and were immediately greeted... More

The service was friendly and faster than expected, especially as they appeared to be very busy. The portions were massive but the food was rather bland and not the best quality.

This is a well-known spot in the Bangor area. As is to be expected for a truck stop, the atmosphere is very casual in both the general dining area and in the separate truckers-only area. The food is very good, particularly for a truck stop. The seafood was clearly fresh (and presumably local) as were blue berries in the pie.... More

Had read that they have wonderful roast beef here. Well it is true. In fact all the food we had was great. Large selection of seafood and other entrees. And we ended up ordering strawberry shortcake to eat there and a whole pie to take with us. Service was super. Overall a great place to eat, even though in a... More

Great food and service. Had chicken pie for mains; the pie was full of chicken and vegetables and the potato was baked properly. Desert was huge and gorgeous. Loads of fresh strawberries. Would recommend this place for anyone wanting solid, real good food.

Not what you expect for a truck stop! This place is huge and has a large menu. They also cater for folks with gluten allergy. Make sure to tell your waitress and she will mark it down. We had a lovely waitress who took our order and got everything to us quickly. They make all the food themselves, nothing tasted... More

We have eaten here several times since we have family living in the area. It's a great place to stop after a long drive when you have a hearty appetite. The servers are all farm fresh and friendly but the service is very slow. Don't go here if you are in a hurry. They have a huge menu and lots... More
