We went here for the first time with some friends and was very impressed with the menu. The burgers are great with fresh local beef. They also have local and state beers and wine. It isn't huge but the food is great.

We come here often for breakfast and for dinner. The service is always very friendly and personable, and the food is really good. It's wonderful to have this place in Skowhegan, where upscale food is to hard to come. We love the corned beef hash, biscuits and gravy and the eggs benedict I had this morning (in the picture) were... More

Our starters were good, great Empenatas, the pork for a main course was served cold. The side of rice was not cooked , crunch,it is not that hard to cook rice. Unless hard rice was part of the dish?

Great addition to the Skowhegan food scene. They use locally-sourced food whenever possible, from farmers you know. The ambience is rustic - a former jail garage! - but the service is friendly. The food prep is very good by those who care about what you are eating.

We've only been once, but it was with a very big goup. They were very accommodating. I'm pretty sure we ended up being there well past their normal closing time. We ate outside and it was pretty dark, but they scrounged all of the lighting they could find and the food was really great. We'd go again.

The setting for this restaurant is in a converted jail. Don't let that fool you, it is really cool! This was my first time and definitely won't be my last. The food was fresh, organic and fantastic. The service was genuinely friendly and helpful, not that fakeness you get from the staff at other restaurants. The food was a little... More

If you are in town for breakfast or brunch on the weekends or are looking for a great dinner spot, the Pickup is a good choice. You will not be disappointed. They are now serving beer and wine as...

The breakfast here is great! All of their food comes from local farmers. I hear they do dinners now, too!

OK, the only breakfast I had outside the conference I attended in Skowhegan but a great one. Great location and fun to watch the farmers market setting up while I ate. Great service and food was well presented with attention paid to sourcing and quality. And the coffee was excellent. Don't miss it.
