Best Subs

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

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.

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!

With out a doubt this place has outstanding subs. My favorites are the Lobster and the Sir Dagwood. The bread is fresh and the service is quick. The owner should be proud of this place. This place will suprise you.

The sandwich man has been my favourite subshop for the last 20+ years! Their bread is the best! Baked fresh every day. They have lots of subs to choose from and the service is great. The shop itself is very clean and the prices are reasonable. Try it - you won't ever go to Subway again!
