I keep going back, tried all the others. It has a relaxed, unpretentious environment with great draght beer selections, decent food. Servers are all great. Wish there were more vegetarian choices.

Worst meal in a long time, maybe ever. Menu claims hand cut steak, clearly not. They apparently do not know how to cook anything but we'll done. Food not fresh, supermarket frozen, not even good quality! Over priced crap. Do not eat here! Save your...More

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.

The mushroom appetizer, the prime rib and steaks, and the poutine tell a different story— all were excellent. There is also a reasonably stocked...More
