Generous portions

A great place in central Maine to get a very generous portion of some of Maine's finest fried seafood!

Food was good - no complaints but no raves either. Cozy restaurant but a little hidden away. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Friendly staff, excellent food, appreciated the "minnow" portions which were plenty (9 scallops maybe about 15 clam bellies.) . A little pricey on the "market price" stuff but not too bad. This will become our regular stop on the way to Moosehead Lake.

Great staff, excellent food. The fish and scallops were done in a light batter and done to perfection. The staff were very friendly and very helpful with suggestions. For the price paid it was well worth the stop off the highway. With great staff it always makes your visit more enjoyable.

I go to visit relatives every other year and I always have to go to Anglers. It's not fancy, but great to just go there and meet with some high school classmates for a good meal and to catch up on all the years that have passed. Will make sure I am going to visit there a few times while... More

This place has some of the best food around. The setting may turn some people off. It is a little run down, but the staff and food are always top notch. I know you can't judge a book by the cover, but others may not stop because of it. If you are in the area stop and try it. We... More

This is not fine dining. This is a fried fish joint done right. I was impressed that my haddock came with choices - not the automatic French fries, but a choice of mashed and baked. And not the automatic cole slaw to go with it, either. I picked green beans for my vegetable and was mildly astonished when a generous... More

This place has wonderful fried seafood and a good staff. The prices are reasonable and if you want Maine clams, lobster, lobster roll etc this would be an ideal stop. I take my 94 year old friend here yearly for his birthday dinner.

Excellent food great service the waitress was more than accommodating. The seafood platter was large enough for 2 or more people and better than any I've had in a long time I would highly recommend this establishment to others
