“Don't Miss Out on this GREAT Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2011

The Swamp Buck is the best in town. Rustic atmosphere with knotty pine walls. Very nice, excellent wait staff, and of course, excellent food for a GREAT price. You can't go wrong. I definite must!

“Good Food, very fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2011

My trio was in town to play a concert at the University and was looking for a nice place with good food and we found it at the Swamp Buck. My steak was perfectly cooked and my friend ordered the ribs and chicken and was only sorry that she couldn't finish it. The wine was poured generously as well. I only wish they stayed open later so we could have come back for a post concert snack.

“Where Route One ends (or begins)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2011

The Swamp Buck sits on Maine St. in Fort Kent Maine, down the street from the terminus of Route One - yes that snake-like road beginning here and ending in Key West, Fla. And nothing about this restaurant could be even remotely close to the Florida Keys. This is north country - where the road (almost) ends, and The Alagash (almost) begins. Nice atmosphere, with dear heads galore, knotty pine walls and flooring, lamps and chandeliers sitting atop antlers. Very authentic and very welcoming. Food: you get a LOT on your plate. Taste is somewhat ordinary, but the place is certainly worth a visit. Lunch offers an abundance of choices, including salads -and dinner offers a wonderful charred prim rib.
