5 stars indeed. My grading scale is based on cost/value ( ie. was your food worth what you paid for it ? ) and level of expectations. I wanted to show this place some love because I was so impressed with their simple BBQ menu with just a handful of classic items - keep it simple. The quality of their... More

During our vacation in Maine, I was laid up for a few days, leaving the guys in our household on their own. They found their way to Mainely Meat, and had takeout three nights in a row. The pulled pork BBQ was a big favorite, as was the toasted cheese on Texas-style toast. Blueberry sodas completed their order. Strange... they... More

We ended up here one very rainy day during our time in Bar Harbor - we went for a brewery tour for something to do in the rain and apparently everyone had the same idea that day because it was packed! We were guided out of the store front to the brewery and were supposed to go left into the... More

The guys ordered the ribs, they were fork tender and seasoned very well. The full rack was shared between the two. They wanted to go back the next day and get more. We girls both had pulled pork. It was full of meat that was tender and you could put your own sauce on. It came on grilled Texas toast.... More

Not as touristy as down town but great breakfasts with big portions at good prices. Also ate there at night once and huge portions for pull pork dinner. Half pound plus pork, Cole slaw, beans, potato of your choice and corn bread. Three of us had the blueberry pancakes which were huge and very tasty. One had the 2 mini... More

The staff was friendly and helpfull and they made a casual meal fun. The Pulled Pork was the best we've ever eaten! They have several sauces, but it was so good that I used very little sauce on mine.

We got into the nearby Hadley's Pt. Campground a bit late, and this was one of the closest places to eat. So glad it worked out! We ate a lot of lobster while in Maine and this was a great alternative. I had the pulled pork and my husband had the sampler platter. All was tasty. The service was wonderful.... More

Ate at the Mainely Meat attached to the Atlantic Brewing Company. Very, very good. OK, I've had BBQ in places like Texas and North Carolina and yeah, there is better BBQ in those places, but not on average. Along with their dry rub, the offer two sauces, spicy and sweet. I mix them both and turn my pulled pork into... More

Having lived in Texas and Oklahoma, we know barbeque. This was just average. It would help if they served the barbeque sandwiches on a bun rather than Texas toast. The potato salad was very, very bland. We had sorbet (homemade) for dessert, and even it was just average. Still, a departure from seafood.
