“Worth the drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is one of those places you read about and then spend an hour trying to find! (Follow the signs for the Owls Head Lighthouse Park!)

Definitely down home Maine. Great sandwiches and homemade desserts.

“The best burger in the country!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Owl's Head General Store has certainly the best burger in Maine and probably the best anywhere. It's judged by the the number of napkins required to eat one and it is usually about 7-8. Really, it's just that juicy. Try the pies as well. All of the food is fresh, home cooked and yummy.

“The Way Life Should BE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a sweet little place...the food is inventive, wholesome, sumptuous and very good--flavor, plating, eye appeal....everything is good--The Burgers are pretty much legendary, and the people are friendly. But you know what makes this a sure bet? The locals love it. And that's the best endorsement any establishment can enjoy. Forget the Rockland Cafe...take a drive and enjoy a little of the off the beaten track side of Maine.
