Yummy

I had the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and fries, it was delicious. The atmosphere is outside seating and BBQ décor, but the prices where good and the service was excellent. Get the blueberry pie for dessert, its worth it!

Large portions of fresh seafood. I had the fried seafood combo and my husband got the fisherman's platter. Both plates came with 2 sides and were twice as much food as we needed. My two boys loved the mac and cheese and corn dog meals they got. My food was good but after sitting there for awhile, the smell of... More

Pit BBQ on the side of the road , real Texas meets deep Maine! A pulled pork slice of sandwich heaven and a clam roll on the side, lobsters and ribs... I was surprised at how good the pork was. Nice peeps and good beers!

Stop by this quite place on the way home from Bar harbor, and we weren't disappointed. First we were greeted by the cook staff with a warm welcome. Then we were taken care of by chuck our waiter, possibly the most entertaining and knowledgable waiter my wife and I have had the pleasure of coming across. He recommended the brisket,... More

The brisket is fantastic, thick slices and lean. The pulled pork cheese fries should be the cause of my coronary later on tonight but oh so good. Those were a complete meal in themselves. Get the lobster grilled instead of steamed. Place is a dive but loved the atmosphere and the music playing at the outside tables.

Great little place on the side of the road. The ribs are to die for!! I was just so disappointed in the price of lobster in Maine! It was good, but too expensive!!!! You have got to try Atlantic Brewing Real Ale. Trying to find it at home!

This place was awesome. Neal is the best waiter we've ever had and he also looks like Paul Walker, like a boss. The youngest brother and Neal, the oldest, were fantastic. The middle brother, however, was a tad salty.

The smoked beef brisket here is AMAZING. Had it with corn on the cob and very delicious baked beans. Awesome service as well - Neil took great care of us, made excellent recommendations and was very funny. He also looks like Paul Walker! We came here twice during our two weeks in the area. Make sure you stop at this... More

Loved the ambiance while I ate the delicious lobster roll, the rock music jams were great. My server Neal was excellent. He's definitively the best of the three brothers and also bears a striking resemblance to Paul Walker. Loved it! LOL!

Stopped at this place on our way into Mt Desert Island at the start of our trip for a late lunch. Between the BBQ and seafood how could you go wrong. My son and I split a pulled pork and brisket sandwich. Both were good but the pulled pork won out. Went back for the traditional lobster pound dinner and... More
