I couldn't believe it when I was reading the menu trying to figure out what I could eat when I noticed the bottom of the page... it said try our GF muffins or toast! I immediately flagged down our server and asked if they had a gluten free menu and she pulled one out! This was the first time I... More

I'll start with what was good: my partner's panko-crusted haddock was perfectly cooked and delicious. Service was attentive as well, despite the lunchtime crush. Alas, rapidly downhill from there. My reuben contained hunks of gristly, rubbery corned beef and cold sauerkraut with Russian-like dressing on the side. Fries were tasteless, post-freezer crinkle cuts, which Dysart's should hang its head about... More

Stopped here when travelling with a group for lunch. So glad we did! This is a great place for pancakes. We travelled in October 2012, and there was a pumpkin pancake option with real butter and real maple syrup. The staff is very accomodating. They are used to dealing with large crowds and remain pleasant! Good experience!

This is a place a friend tipped me off to. It is close to the I-95 and we usually try to eat here when we can. It has the best food for the money in a casual atmosphere. You have got to try this place for informal dining.

One of the best truck stop places in the USA. Family run so not like the big chains. 24 hour local restaurant that serves everything you might want and then some. Authentic maine food purchased locally when available. Ambiance, trucking, high school teams, locals.... The best.

This is a truckstop and it is open 24 hours a day. However the food is good. No it is not a 5 star resturant but if you want something warm, tastey and it is late then stop here. They give a lot of food...so be hungry. It it right next to the Best Western you could walk to it.... More

The restaurant was quite crowded, but the service was fast. I do not eat gluten and they even offered gluten free bread!!! I was very impressed. The portions are huge so the kids easily shared a plate. This is one of our favorite places to eat in Bangor!

OMG! The chicken pie is better than they advertise. We bought one to take home for dinner because we had seen the crazy ad for 'buttery, flaky crust'. It was SO good. I had never tried it before. I have had their blueberry pie and it is the best anywhere. CInnamon rolls on the weekends are to die for. Very... More
