We had a wonderful lunch in this tiny eatery with 5 tables. Make sure you put your name on the list as soon as you get there, then wander in the specialty food store filled with European goodies while you wait to be called. We built a plate from their individual servings - sauerkraut, red cabbage kraut, German potato salad,... More

Small place so get there early even tho it is out in the country - breakfast is the best meal in my opinion - very good German food with a good selection - great service and prices are reasonable. Their store attached has a amazingly wide variety of gourmet type cheeses and other non-grocery store foods. Has a good following... More

Wonderful setting,excellent wait staff,very diverse deli meats along with the European candies/cakes,great coffee/red sky from Bar Harbor, canned goods,etc. Sandwiches were disappointing only two slices of Pastrami-granted this is Maine and not Brooklyn-but come on 2 slices. The Kraut Balls despite the name are delicious.

Morse's Kraut House is almost a hidden gem in Maine. When my husband, daughter, and I first moved to Maine in 1989, we made the wonderful discovery of Morse's. It has changed quite a bit since then. The products available now are amazing, but our visits are all about the kraut. It is totally different from any other kraut. Fresh,... More

Primary reason for being is to make wonderful Morris's sauerkraut. They also have half a dozen tables where you can order from the kitchen and eat. And there is a nice store next to the restaurant we can buy not only their sauerkraut but many other German – based foods.

My third visit and always excellent. Biggest challenge is deciding between breakfast and lunch. The reuben omelette and blintzes are are special. Order a variety and share. After eating stock up in the euro market and deli - bring a cooler!

Let me start by saying I stumbled across this is place in the planning stages of our family trip to Maine. Had it not been for our family's heritage and love of German food, we may not have figured it was worth a stop, but it would have been wonderful even without our love of things German. This is both... More

We stopped by for some kraut and ended up trying several different entrees. The servings are large and quite good. The restaurant seating area is rather small yet quaint. It was a fun experience and I would go back again.

A trip to Morse's for a delectable Reuben, served with a pretzel and pickles on the side, used to be a highlight of our trips to Maine. Under new ownership, Morse's can no longer bask in its former glory. The Reubens we had today were disasters, each consisting of a flabby, fleshy, tasteless mass of meat-like substance that bore no... More

Went here on a beautiful fall day. The drive into this remote restaurant was stunning. The German restaurant and store is kinda awesome. Lots of product that you don't normally see. Various pickle samples. We ended up choosing the half sours. So good. The restaurant was fun too. Small room only five tables so we had to wait but it... More
