We were having a hankering for good fried chicken & heard from the locals about this place. They said if we didn't mind driving from Bar Harbor to outside Ellsworth (about four miles)- try it! At first we were leery b/c it was a general...store & gas station. The cashier, Kathy, asked if I'd like to try a piece.. ok. So I did. Wow! It was high quality chicken- delicious, moist, tender & fried with a perfect crisp! These people were so friendly & kind. They treated us like family. There's a few tables to sit down & eat inside. They offer many other items besides chicken. The place is old but very well kept & clean. We had a nice time talking with the locals- awesome people! Do be careful driving out of parking lot onto the highway- very busy intersection.More

You may not expect good pizza at a convenience store, but they have it! Even Gluten Free Crust which was the vest I have had in 5 years!

A popular gas and guzzle stop. The owners know their clientele well. You can warm your hands, chow down on Mac and Cheese, catch up on Downeast gossip.

We stop here a lot, and buy sandwiches and beverages to take on hikes and picnics down east. We almost always stop here because they are always friendly, and there is a much better selection of food than most convenience stores. For food, there is...everything from sandwiches and wraps, to fried chicken, pizza, hotdogs, etc. There are lots of cakes and whoopie pies, as well as slices of prepared frozen pies, tons of beverages, and about any flavor of potato chips you can imagine. I didn't give it a 5, because they called it a restaurant, and as a restaurant, it would probably be more of a 2, but as far as convenience stores in this area go, it's probably the best of all, so I gave it a 4.More

Super expensive and they close really early. For the closest convenience store to where I live, they are not really convenient at all.

The store and gas station is ok but the food is terrible. I have been here several times. Seems poorly cooked and presented. On par with microwave meals. Years ago it was ok but seems to have gone down hill. For me I look else...ware.More

Neat spot for some quick grub with generous portions..... The pizza is really greasy but somehow delicious at the same time

If you are in a jam, this is a must stop spot!!!! Great selection of grub and great prices to boot. So much grub for so little dough......

The food here is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Their pizza is really tasty and their subs (hoagies) are even better. Definitely recommend
