Stopped in for dinner after spending the day hiking and riding on the Cabot Trail. What a nice surprise. Food was excellent and highly recommend The Ringer. One of the best burgers I have had in a while. Casual atmosphere and great service.

My lobster club was unique and quite tasty. My husband's crab sandwich was also very good. A big crowd came in as we were finishing up so it took a while to get our bill. The restaurant is one big room with 4-person tables arrayed...More
