Good Solid New England Fare

This restaurant has been a favorite of mine since the "old lady" cooked fabulous meals and deserts. That was over twenty years ago. Don took it over and cooks solid New England fare. I've tried all his dishes over time and have been very pleased. Sometimes he attempts to expand his cooking... read more

This place has not changed in 50 years. That said, as a place to bring the kids and not worry about upsetting other diners, this place cannot be beat. The fish sandwich was a fresh piece of haddock, nicely cooked, and they do a nice job on the hot dogs, burgers, club sandwiches, etc. this place is inexpensive and unhurried,... More

We were on our way to someplace else last week and turned around to stop at Uncle Don's Spurwink Cafe. The sign said "Established in 1955". So was I, so I figured it must be pretty good. It was the Friday night of Memorial Day weekend, but the restaurant was at about half occupied. We were seated immediately and promptly... More

Stick to a simple menu and cook it well, add excellent service and that describes Uncle Don's. We ate their twice recently and loved it. The seafood pie was really tasty and the chicken pie delicious. The staff are delightful as well and nothing is too much for them, Uncle Don himself visits every table to talk to his customers....

THE best restaurant in Maine (and New England) in my humble opinion. It is like "going home" for dinner (or lunch) The baked haddock dinners are so delicious, but anything and everything served at the Spurwink Kitchen is! Delightful ambience and great service make it my very favorite.

When on vacation in Maine we always try to get to Spurwinks. For an appetizer, clam chowder with corn, and turkey minestrone soup, meal baked haddock and a New England Boiled Dinner, dessert lemon meringue pie and raspberry apple crisp, all were delicious. On Friday and Saturday nights they have piano music. Uncle Don and all his employees make you... More

I'm sorry to say that I agree with one of the earlier reviewers who said that the lobster in the lobster roll was watery. Perhaps we didn't order right (some of the diners near us appeared to be locals) but this was not one of the better places we chose. We evn tried Indian pudding and didn't particularly like it....

We always enjoy dinner at Uncle Don's! It's good comfort food and pleasant service from a staff who have been there for a few years. Highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese and the baked haddock. Uncle Don comes out to greet his guests. Save room for dessert - the pies and crisps are great! The piano player provides enjoyable... More

We were looking for a restaurant to eat at. We just happened to go by Spurwink Country Kitchen. We figured we had never eaten there so we would try it. When we looked at the menu, we thought the prices were high. We decided to stay and try it. After we ordered our food, it took at least a 1/2... More
