This was our second visit and both times it has been great. If you are on I-95 going from Waterville to Bangor and want a great meal then get off the highway and drive along US-2 for awhile. There is nothing fancy about this place but they keep it clean, the service is great, and the food is is fresh... More

The sign over the door says, friends gather here. Everyone seemed to know each other. It seemed friendly. The waitress (Pickle?) was very sweet. We were seated by the kitchen and could see everyone rushing around. The waitresses really hustled. The guys on the back were busy too. We were in and out in 40 minutes. I had the lobster... More

This is one of 3 Anglers Restaurants in Maine, one here in Newport, one in Hermon and one in Searsport. Anglers features a good assortment of fried or broiled seafoods, all of it reliably quite good. I cannot remember having anything here that disappointed. I often opt for the wonderful fried clams, a Maine specialty. Really, besides fast food, it... More

Good prices, feel like the food is ok but not great. Little on the greasey heavy side. Lots of seafood and big dessert menu. I can picture my grandfather liking it here, kinda old school.

This is no small feat, mussels are served all over the state, but Angler's gets it perfectly every time. My husband and I love this restaurant and have never had a bad meal there. The service is efficient and the setting is pleasant enough. We go there for the food because it is unpretentious and delicious.

We received a gift card for Christmas and decided to have dinner there. It was on Saturday at 5:30. My husband ordered Fish Chowder and I ordered Fish and Chips. The waitress seemed to be in a bit of a hurry and she did give us the menu and took our order. We asked about what the specials were that... More

We have been here more than once, and always look for an excuse to go back again. I highly recommend the smelts! A New England favorite. I almost down-graded the atmosphere a point, because the next table over had two very loud children, but that was not the restaurants fault. By all means, if you are in Newport, stop here... More

Anglers is as good as it gets for family seafood. Always fresh tasting food, fast friendly service. Great sweet potato fries, always good fish and chips, great clam strips, and Maine shrimp. Desserts are also a treat. My car automatically turns in.

We stopped here for lunch on a Wednesday and found the restaurant quite busy. Our server seemed to be overworked. Although she was efficient, her manner was not especially cordial, as she was constantly in a hurry. A server is usually one's first impression and this sets the tone for the meal. Specials were on a huge whiteboard which was... More
