“Not your average pie”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We picked up Pats on evening to take back to our place on Mt Desert Island. It was worth the stop. The pizza crust and sauce is a lot like Ledo's if you have ever had Ledo's pizza. The crust is like pastry and the sauce is sweet. It's really good.

“Pizza!!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Pat's has the best pizza ever. They also have unusual toppings or combinations. We especially like the Royale with artichokes and fresh basil, yum. Their cheese knots with marinara sauce are a great way to start the meal. The staff is always friendly. We really enjoy this place.

“PAT'S IS A REQUIRED VISIT!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I attended the University of Maine (Orono) in the early 1970's and the original Pat's Pizza is located right off campus. Their delivery pizzas (8" for a buck in 1975!!) kept me and my roommates going through any number of all-nighter study sessions and hosted an equal number of parties at their restaurant. My uncle even worked there while attending UMO in the early 1960's so I'm a bit biased. Still, in my opinion, eating a pizza at Pat's ranks right up there with a visit to LL Bean or a hike around Acadia National Park if you are going to be in Maine. They may not have the absolute best pizza I've ever had, but every time I bite into a slice wonderful memories flood back and I'm once again a college student without a care in the world. Don't pass up an opportunity to eat in one of their restaurants!

“Maine is "pet friendly" but not Pat's”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

One of the draws of the area is the "pet friendly" establishments. Unfortunately Pat's is not on of them. Every restaurant we visited during our two week stay in the area that had outdoor dinning allowed us to have our restrained small cocker spaniel with us. Not Pat's.
