Creative, fresh, locally sourced with a southern theme. Excellent variety. Attentive and upbeat servers. Oysters were outstanding from Damariscotta, icey cold and briney. Imaginative and tasty list of house cocktails. Two of us had fried chicken and collards-totally satisfying. We tried one of the specials...More

They put us on their “patio” (gravel area behind the kitchen), where we froze because their “heaters” were either ineffective or not functioning. Food was good.

Parking is a challenge. There is no lot for the restaurant. Depending on what time I day we go for dinner, we often have found a spot out front, or may park on a side street. The restaurant is worth it, so we would even park... More

The menu at Hot Suppa is all made from scratch from quality ingredients; local goods are used whenever possible. Our renowned breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week, so you can get that corned beef hash fix whenever you’re jonesing. Dinner is available five nights a week, featuring our favorite dishes, like fried chicken & a waffle,Pulled Pork Mac n' cheese, falafel salad, and Maine oysters on the half shell. We offer a full bar service if you care to relax into the evening with a Porch Swing cocktail, or recover in the morning with a spicy Bloody Mary or cold draft beer.
