Good food, great bar

Haven't been to Rose Garden in a while, but the last visit was great. Ribs were wonderful and live music was good too.

I knew I'd be headed to the Rose Garden; I didn't know it was closing two days later. Not closing- reinventing itself. I made it just in time! Lindsey and Al are amazing!

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.

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.

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.
