Fiddlehead soup is a must try!

Excellent service on two different occasions. Staff was friendly and made great recommendations. Food was very good both times, even late in the evening.

We always come for dinner when visiting family in the area. Nice, creative menu with great selection of seafood and fish. View to Mt. Katahdin is wonderful. Patio seating looks right toward the lake and mountain. Entertainment on the patio too some nights.

Who can complain about a gorgeous view of Mount Katahdin, and terrific food and service? The French fries were the best ever and the zucchini from the on-site garden was wonderful!

Really great food in a scenic location. Nothing was too much trouble for the wait staff. I only gave 4 out of 5 because service was a little slow at dinner - but I think they were training up someone new. The friendliness and quality of the food more than made up for that!

We stopped in here after a day of hiking in Baxter State Park. The waitstaff were friendly and knowledgable. The meal s were tasty and well-presented. The deserts were also splendid.

Absolutely fantastic food, and a great location. Great views of Mt Katahdin, but the best part was the food. Generous portions and very reasonable price. This is the BEST restaurant in the area. DO NOT MISS IT!

We stopped in for dinner after the day at Baxter State Park, we really didn't know what to expect but we were starving and with 2 small children we wanted to find a place where they could find something to eat too. So we saw the sign off the road and followed. I have worked in retail management for over... More

With a friend visiting from California and never having visited Millinocket in our 12 years in Maine, we decided it was time. I had read reviews of the River Drivers' reataurant and so we made this our destination point. The location is lovely, right next to the water with beautiful cabins and activities for all ages. The people were lovely... More
