We have been Solo Bistro fans for several years, but recently when we had family visiting, we decided that the menu at Admiral Steakhouse would be more to everyone's liking. Though the night we were there a high school reunion group was also, but the service for our table of 6 was friendly and attentive (without being cloying or overly chummy). Two had prime rib and found the smaller cut to be more than adequate; one had tuna steak, one had a 12 oz. filet mignon, and two had the lazy lobster -- I was one of the last. The sherry cream sauce with the lobster is excellent. Several of us had the tomato, mozarella, and basil (Caprese) salad, and one had oyster shooters. All in all, a most enjoyable meal.
Since Solo Bistro no longer is open on Sunday, we made reservations for a Sunday evening after a show at Maine State Music Theater. So often our initial impression just doesn't hold up on subseqent visits, but that was not the case with Admiral. We're glad we finally tried it, after several summers of saying to ourselves, "A steakhouse? In Maine?" The menu is varied enough that we feel it warrants further explorations!
