You could easily miss the eagles's nest. The place is small, unassuming and a bit rundown from outside. It is beside the Penobscot river so you get a good view of it if you are seated in one of the Tables. The smell of fried food is thick in the air as you enter the place. A few tables inside... More

This tiny establishment is a wonder to behold- view of the river, counter seats and tables. Friendly service. Great fried clams - watch the size clam order you ask for - you won't be able to finish the large one. Good fish sandwich and huge burgers. Sit at the counter so you can watch 6 or more people operate simultaneously... More

This is a local restaurant that's a fun stop on highway #9 traveling through Maine. The fried haddock was some of the best I've had anywhere. I would have tried "baked" but there is no oven on the premises, so it's either frier or micro-wave. My husband had the scallops done in the micro-wave and they were scrumptious. It's a... More

The many good photos of Eagles Nest do not warrant the need for my photos. We sat at a table overlooking the river. I chose lobster burger. Although Prince Edward Island (Canada) lobster is the best in my estimation( because I think they cook it in “sea” water). Eagles Nest is the place for quantity of serving. I am sure... More

Traveling for business in Maine, I needed to make sure that I got my lobster roll fix while here. Arrived about 6pm to find the place full. I was very warmly greeted and offered a small table on the river. Since there are only 8 tables and I didn't want to take up a whole table, I grabbed one of... More

Tiny restaurant overlooking river. Serving the very best lobster omelette and western omelette to be had. The servings are huge, the staff are really super. During our visit it was full of the locals for breakfast. Do not miss this one

We heard from a local that the best lobster rolls were at Eages Nest and they were right. Best lobster roll I've had! The place is small so there can be a wait at dinner time but the food was worth it. The kitchen, in plain view when you walk in, could use a good cleaning but nothing that stopped... More
