We had just climbed Katahdin and descended upon the River Drivers' Restaurant in our damp and dusty gear. We were heartily welcomed and served well, even though a large wedding party had been booked at the same time. The food, while nothing super special, is well handled and certainly the best I've had in the area.

Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. I ordered lobstah roll and onion rings. The lobstah roll was reasonable priced and delish. The onion rings were great! They were tempura. Very light.

This place was just awesome. From the people, to the food, to the location; just awesome. If you are in this area, I highly recommend you come here. This restaurant is located at Twin Pine Campgrounds on the way to Baxter State Park. It is well marked but does require traveling on a dirt road for a mile or so.... More

Granted, I've only been here for breakfast, but I keep coming back. The view, the patio, the friendly people and the wonderful menus are all first-rate. Especially if you've been out roughing it on Katahdin or the lake, this is a wonderful place to come home to.

The food was fantistic but I would have to take points away for the time we waited for our meal after the order was taken. We waited a full hour before the soup arrived so the meal was an hour and 15 min wait. I could understand this if we were having alcoholic drinks but we only had water and... More

This was a very, very good restaurant. The friendly service, quality of fresh food, the presentation, and the wine list were really appreciated. The menu was quite sophisticated, and the combination of friendly efficient service made this place a winner. It is informal and family friendly as well.

We had an early dinner at the Restaurant. The staff is very friendly and outside seating was pleasant. The food was presented in an attractive manner, although the portions were quite small. The meals were delivered very quickly, almost too quick. The salads were fresh and very colorful. Vegetables are grown on site during the summer. My entree, Grilled Orange... More

We stumbled upon this resort while looking for a dinner place before heading into Baxter. The location is beautiful and the food was first rate. Happened to be a Friday night so my daughter ordered the all you can eat fish fry (great value). After dinner we walked down to the shore and enjoyed the views of Mount Katahdin across... More

We were staying at one of the NEOC cabins and after a long day of adventure we headed to the River Driver's restaurant. It was a very busy Saturday evening and we did not have a reservation. After a short wait we were seated at a table next to the bar and had a very friendly waitress who gave us... More
