“A family favorite for years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2009

We've been coming here for about 20 years and have rarely been disappointed; the seafood is fresh, the menu typically creative, and the pies are delicious. Highly recommended!

“My favorite restaurant in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2009

I moved last December to the area and had a hard time finding a restautant with a great atmosphere AND great food!

I've visited Slates twice and will gladly return. The specials are awsome and the live music makes the ambiance romatic and at ease.

If you like fresh ingredients from local growers, this is the place to be!

Very enjoyable ambience and service. The food is a little overrated, but if you're a local, it's a great place to see people from the community.

Incredible food in downtown Hallowell! Very fresh ingredients and mostly known for their breakfast/brunch (which is all I've ever had here). From pancakes, waffles, eggs benedict, omlettes, and eggs, all these dishes have many varieties for each. Next door is their own bakery and it is delicious! The bakery supplies the restaurant as well as retail sales. Everything I've ever had was incredible! Cookies (no bake, chocolate expresso, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, pumpking chocolate chip...) breads, muffins, cakes, scones and freshly brewed coffee are what you can find here.

Highly Recommended!

Note: The restaurant portion of this locally family owned business caught fire in late Feb. 2007. They are currently rebuilding. The Bakery remains open, and they have opened The Rising Grill to begin serving a bit more than what the bakery has to offer, yet not quite what the restaurant had. Help support an incredible local business!

The bakery makes delicious cookies and quiches, while the restaurant has the best brunch in the area. My favorite is their cheese plate, as cheese plates are hard to come across in central maine!
