Substantial subs at a reasonable price

I usually get The Dagwood ( ham, turkey ,bacon & beef ). It is a well-filled sub and the rolls are fresh. I have always had a good sub here. Sitting inside is limited but the eagle nest is just down the road on the left so make it a picnic. There are also picnic tables outside. They use to... read more

The Sandwich Man continues to be my favourite place to get a sub. The bread is always home-made, and the ingredients are always fresh. Very friendly staff, great prices, and a good atmosphere.

Sadly, the quality is not like it used to be. The subs are still "okay" but not as fresh and delicious as they once were.

The bread is always fresh and they use fresh ingredients on their subs. Not much seating inside, but they do have picnic tables outside for warmer weather. Great place for a quick sub or pizza

We have frequented here since we were young - this place is awesome! The homemade bread is delicious with the Dagwood and Ham and Swiss being our favourite!

This little sandwich shop is clean and bright. The service is both friendly and fast. The staff seem genuinely happy to be there. The lobster sub is so delicious and such a treat! You can eat-in or take out. Many people also call their orders in head of time. The disappointing thing is that they are not open on weekends,... More

Sandwich Man menu is exclusively sub sandwiches from lobster rolls to BLT's and beyond. They are made to order on white or wheat rolls in small, medium and large sizes. regrettably, those are the only options. That said, all of the ones that we have had on several visits were very good and reasonably priced. So, if you like subs,... More

I especially love the freshness and flavor. Don't miss an opportunity to stop !!!! You'll be hooked and be looking forward to that Dagwood ( or whatever) your favorite is. I get sandwiches there every time I visit Maine !!!

We happened on this place on our way to Bangor and what a great find! The lobster was fresh and delicious with just the right ratio of mayo to large, full lobster claws on a freshly baked bun. We even tried to stop on our return trip and were sadly disappointed it is closed on the weekend. A wide selection... More

My dad was visiting from the west coast and we stopped in for a lobster roll and it was as good as advertised. Will be back. Looking forward to trying something else next visit!
