We are staying at Twin Pines for the week and enjoyed a drink at the bar before our moose tour and dinner afterwards. The food was really good and the staff was attentive. They have a full bar with a good beer selection. It is a great atmosphere too. Check them out. You will be glad you did!

After dropping my son off to hike the Appalachian trail we stopped here for breakfast. Wonderful homemade blueberry pancakes, nice menu decent prices. You can eat in or outdoor with a view of the lake and mountains. After spending the day at Baxter we also went back for cocktails and a wonderful dinner of fresh grown vegetables in our salad...

I highly recommend this restaurant if you're in the area. Beautiful location next to Millinocket Lake with vegetable gardens on site for the restaurant. I'd recommend any of the mixed drinks, nachos, veggie burger or salmon. Yum!

Fabulous food and exceptional service. We sat on the patio with a great view of the lake. A lovely sunset meal. The meal was incredible and dessert did not disappoint.

Great views of Mount Katahdin and Millinocket Lake. Great beer selection. The food is always great. We've never had outstanding service, but, if you're in a hurry at a place like this you're missing the point anyway.

Beautiful location, beautiful building but the food is ho hum and very expensive. It may be due to lack of competition I don't know but I was really disappointed in my fried fish & chips. I will say the meal was ample in size but the obviously frozen and processed haddock (?) was just ok and I did not finish... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant - wish we had stayed for dinner. We just had appetiser sand drinks but everything was great and the food they were delivering looked awesome. Would definitely return

Friendly staff, food always excellent, staff very helpful and accommodating. Situated in a resort right on Millinocket Lake . You are equally welcome for a relaxing drink, right after coming right of a canoe trip or hiking the trail, or dressed up for a first class dinner.

Thank quilter2333
