We enthusiastically recommend Mainely Meat BBQ, which we've enjoyed at their Atlantic Brewing Company location, where you can combine a beer tasting and BBQ. We haven't been able to stop in at their Route 3 location, though it was highly recommend to us by locals,...More

Pork bbq on Texas Toast was delicious. We went right before they closed for the season so unfortunately we didn't get to try their ice cream.

I'd give it a 3.5. Maybe it was my average meal, or the loud folks behind us. I don't know why we left just feeling average. The waitstaff was nice and the food was correct. This restaurant came highly recommended by our hotel, so I...More

We checked trip advisor reviews for breakfast at Mainely Meat. The positive breakfast reviews were spot on. I had a delicious breakfast sandwich with home fries. Fries could have been cooked more, but I should have told them "crispy". Husband had blueberry pancakes that he...More

Decent bbq with some parts better than others (4 stars brisket, ribs 2 stars). But for the area good enough. Would revisit to see how they were as we were only there once.

A little chilly with no indoor tables but well worth the minor discomfort. Food was exceptional and service was outstanding

I’m pretty fussy when it comes to eating out, I think we always eat better at home....but this place is home cooking! Simone is doing the great cooking all from scratch. She makes the baked beans starting with the fat back and they come out...More
