We discovered Kosta's from the front desk of Vacationland where we were staying 1 night on the way to Acadia. It's within walking distance and just wanted to unwind after 6 hours of being on the road. We sat at the front bar (back bar is a sports bar and noisy) which was very quiet and comfortable. Staff were attentive... More

A buddy and I go here every other week. Great food, always a special menu for the day. The staff is superb, very welcoming and wonderful service. We always go to the back at the bar, but there is a front entrance where I have not been. Highly recommend Kosta's!

Love this place! They took an abandoned MacDonald's and turned it into an attractive, friendly restaurant that locals love and tourists headed for Acadia would be well advised to stop at in the trip from Bangor's airport to the coast. The waitstaff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient; the menu has plenty of options even without the daily specials (which are... More

Kostas, is that Restaurant and Bar where everyone knows your name. I feel right at home. They have great food with a menu that offers a meal for everyone. From daily specials to pub food and wonderful Dinning Room menu. We enjoy the Seafood and Beef. For take out the Pizza is fabulous. Kostas is a Family favorite.

We have been to the Kosta's bar several times for snacks and beverages. We stopped in for lunch recently and were completely surprised by the taste, quality, quantity and value of our meals. We ordered off the lunch menu - a burger and a pizza. Both were excellent! I really liked the fact that fries were not included with the... More

This longtime Brewer eatery's drab exterior belies delicious ethnic cuisines served up every day. Our business group members shared appetizers, and dug in to the ample lunch entries till we nearly burst.

We had driven by this place many times and finally had the time to stop and try it. The place was almost empty, which is never a good sign. They state on their sign they are a Greek restaurant but only seemed to have 1 item, a Greek sandwich,on the menu. The sandwich was good. I know about Greek food... More

Last week was the first time my wife and I had eaten here. We were looking for a new place for lunch, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and the portions were quite substantial. We ate in the restaurant portion and were promptly waited on and served. The food was hot and tasty and the... More

We went for a birthday dinner and Kostas was the second choice. We eat there frequently in the bar and order comfort food which is always good. We had a waitress that was a bit odd and really almost inappropriate. We ordered and I specifically asked about the beef tips if I could have them without onions and the waitress... More
