Stopped in for few beers. Totally a bar with local flavour. What made the place was the people. Everyone friendly and just there to drink and have some fun.

I entered the Rose Garden to find friendly locals and friendly owners! the place was decent, but I was made to feel right at home with the locals. Excellent to visit in Eastport Maine!

Was really looking forward to visiting after reading the reviews. HOWEVER, needs to be cleaned. First impression was seedy/dirty. Winter lunch was a very limited menu. Great art on display? Where? The owners produced some interesting "wall art" .... designs made up of wood and corks. Other than that, the space next door (which you had to walk through to... More

This was the most unique restaurant with great steak. Cannot say enough about the hospitality of Ron and Linda. Felt like we were friends in their house.

The food and drink are great and the people very interesting and friendly. The place has some great art on display. We very much enjoy talking with the owners...Salt-of-the-Earth types---rare :)

We recently spent three nights in downtown Eastport exploring much of what this hidden Maine treasure has to offer. While wandering around our first afternoon, we happened upon the Rose Garden Café, pulled up a bar stool and were greeted by Al and Linda. Within moments, we were chatting away. Our drinks became splitting one of the afternoon's specials, a... More

Popped in here after growing tired of the run of the mill tourist type places up and down the coast. This place is definitely unique- and perhaps not for everyone. It has a pool table and a dart board and an art gallery next door. The decor is certainly not upscale, but it fits the overall vibe of artsy improvisation.... More

One problem with reviews is that there's a lot of comparing apples and oranges. In Eastport there's Quoddy Bay Lobster, which is top notch for perfectly fresh seafood in an informal setting, outdoors, and in season. And there's the Pickled Herring, which is good up scale food in a [for Eastport] sophisticated setting, in season. And the Happy Crab, which... More

If you have heard of the legendary "Down East" Maine then most likely have heard of Eastport, Maine. Eastport is loaded with history and innovation not to mention the incredible Bay of Fundy (world’s highest tides). While in Eastport we discovered the wonderfully eclectic Rose Garden Cafe. We warmed right up to Linda and Al our hosts. The place quickly... More
