Good lobster, what can you say

Lobster roll about $20, basically lobster chunks on a roll. And the lobster mac 'n cheese was tasty also.

This is my second review of Taste of Maine. This time we tried the Sunday buffet, which we thought was going to be an after church brunch buffet. It wasn’t – no breakfast items. (Our fault for not checking in advance.) We decided to try it anyway, and I would NOT recommend it to anyone. The steam tables were full... More

Food was average- lobster roll good but the view on the patio is what made it great! The birds the smell of salt water. It is a typical East Coast diner with a fun shop and a reasonable price.

Looking forward to a good meal having eaten at The Taste of Maine in the past. Thought be would try what looked like a "just OK Buffet" for $16.95. Once seated waited almost 15 minutes for service, while watching other 12 tables or so receive attention. Deciding we had had enough and to stop wasting our time, got up and... More

Our group was so excited to go to Taste of Maine and taste our longed-for lobster dish. The group at our table was all quite disappointed. The lobster was so tough we could not really cut it, and most of us just gave up and didn't eat. The baked potatoe was cold and veggies really not that good. The server... More

Worst calm chowder I have ever tasted in my life. Threw it away. Lobster roll was lobster with mayo on a hot dog bun for 20.99. Go somewhere else.

Food was average/good and prepared to order. Lack of vegetable choices. Atmosphere is a bit cluttered. Felt like I was in my grandmother's attic.

We ate lunch here on a recent trip to Maine. We both had the fried flounder sandwich and it was delicious. The view out the window would have been better without the fog but still quite nice. They have a very extensive menu. We were very please with out meal.

Taste Of Maine restaurant is a good dinner restaurant, varied entrees to choose from including seafood of course.

Was disappointed in Lazy Lobster dish, a taste of lobster is what we got, was expecting all... More
