“elegant yet relaxed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

Real food! And deliciously prepared ..all in an elegant, friendly and charming atmosphere. We have been several times and have never been disappointed. Their eggplant dishes and the antipasto are among our favorites.

“Casual atmosphere with wonderful, homemade meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2011

My wife and I spend every winter weekend in Bethel and often eat out at one of the restaurants in the area. We had eaten at 22 Broad Street last spring and found it to be bland at best, however after reading some positive Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to try it again, and were glad we did. We had the Bracciole and the eggplant lasagna, and found both to be consummately prepared. The eggplant was wafer thin, crispy, and the bracciole had the meaty flavor that is only achieved through time. We thought 22 Broad St. embodied the best of Maine in that it was both a casual dining experience, with food that could be found at any of the finer restaurants of Boston or NYC. The wines were also nice - not overly expensive, but good quality that isn't typically found by the glass. We will definitely return!

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

Superb service, authentic entrees and amazing desserts---Easily one of the best spots in Maine--Dined here with two young kids who really enoyed it as well---Casual family friendly but sophisticated menu and great wine selection. So much better than traditional, thrown together ski lodge restaurant menu (real food not fried junk) with indifferent or rushed service.

“Great Valentines Day meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2011

After several emails back and forth with Amy I booked in for two couples on the special Valentines Day menu. Really warm service and welcome, outstanding food in fabulous surroundings. Expensive versus other Sunday River venues but well worth the visit and good value versus similar quality in the UK.
