My husband had eaten here in late September with a group of men...he said everyone's meal look terrific and the service was very good...we have been out of the area and tonight was the first time we have been able to go back. So very glad that we did! We arrived just after 5:30 on a chilly night(23 degrees...in case you don't know what "chilly" means in Maine!)The place smelled sooo good! Decided to sit at the bar and we were glad we did. Super bartender named Haley was attentive and friendly. Ordered a bottle wine (BV Coastal @ $24)...settled on Fish & Chips for him and Steaks Tips for me. F&C was very good but we agree that the Steak Tips(I share) was the best we have had in a long time(ordered Medium rare and served exactly mr!)...Sides of sweet potato fires & broccoli(best sides ever!)...all the broccoli was eaten...cooked al dente with a little butter & s&p)(Hmmm...saw that GHW Bush ate here...wonder if he ate the broccoli...he should have!...could have changed a 80 yr old phobia!)
Watched several items being served to other guests...looks like "Shark Bites"...fried fish chunks served in a paper cone...is the one we'll try next time...That and a couple of brews would do the trick...if we can stay away from the Steak Tips!
Our bill...Steak Tips...F& Chips...bottle of wine...$66 even. Totally worth it. We will be back! They do take reservations...my requirement for the summer season...but not necessary in the winter.
How often do we go out to eat and have everything meet or exceed our expectations? Almost never!(read my reviews!) Drove home planning when we can go back. The best...good luck and carry on!
