Went for all you can eat Monday night wings. Restaurant had trash and food on the floor. Waitress was very attentive but the kitchen was very slow. Wings were just average.

This is our favorite restaurant in Fort Kent for its haddock chowder, crispy spicy french fries, fish dinner (haddock), and Southwestern barbecue burger, and good barbecue ribs for supper. Prices are quite reasonaable too! Since we live in Ft. Kent, we've tried many items.

There aren’t many choices in Fort Kent and 2 locals said this is the best place in town. We had a good meal, the portions are large. The burger was cooked medium-rare and had the option of rice instead of the standard fries. The chicken...More
