Lobstah, Lobstah, and more Lobstah!

Packs a punch on price, but the food is great! I had the Boiled lobster and as a southern from Louisiana I must say it does not beat boiled crawfish; however, it is the best lobster I had in Maine. The service was great, and the view is gorgeous (the restaurant over looks pleasant... read more

We stopped on a fluke on the way from Portland to Bar Harbor and could not be more thankful that we did. We ate lunch and had sandwiches which were truly OUTSTANDING! Do yourself a favor and order the clam chouder which had more clams than you know what to do with and the crab cake sandwich which is like... More

This was out first time eating here and the ambiance and view was fantastic, but the prices were shocking. The waitress recommended the daily special which was the lobster club sandwich. The sandwich arrived and it was huge - big pieces of fresh lobster on three layers of Texas toast with fresh BLT. On the side were tasty fries and... More

We were driving by and decided to stop for lunch. The restaurant has interesting decor. We both got the baked haddock. It was very good. It had just a bit of cracker crumbs which we liked. We had the blueberry cobbler and the apple cobbler. They were both very good. The service was attentive and friendly. The host seated us... More

We come here once a year when passing through. It's consistently good and the service at the bar has always been friendly. During the latest visit the mister and I split a fried seafood platter. I was surprised the seafood seemed extremely fresh. (I work on the waterfront of Portland and have become somewhat spoiled with quality seafood) I had... More

I was totally disappointed with the quality of the beverages that we ordered top dollar for very little. Waitresses should not play bartender especially if they have no idea how to make a drink

Travelling on route 1 heading to Boothbay, we came over a hill and spotted "Taste of Maine". Actually you can't miss it, beautiful location overlooking an inlet. Service was great, food was even better, prices were very good also.

We were traveling from North Conway, NH to Boothbay Harbor, ME, and needed lunch. After passing Bath the first restaurant we came across was a Dairy Queen on Route one which fortunately for us was crowded with a waiting line so we drove on and found The Taste of Maine just down the road. We had a light lunch of... More

We discovered this place while wedding-planning six years ago... food is excellent, comforting, Maine cuisine. Upstairs function room is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a wedding-- we had our reception there and loved it (even has a private bridal bathroom). We went back this past weekend and the food is just as great-- Excellent fish chowder, amazing stuffed shrimp! Has... More
