We had dinner here after a moose watch. Dinner was more succesful tan the moose watch. I had a nice mediteranian pasta. Would have been better with less tomstoes but it was still very good. Fresh fish was well prepared but the coconut shrimp were tasteless. We tried the pumpkin brulee but did not care for it. It was very dense and not light as you would espect a brulee to be. More like a pudding with burn't sugar on top. We had a new waitress and she tried very hard to please. She will do find. I did not personally like seeing the moosehead staring at me throughout dinner

We live about an hour and a half south of Millinocket and wanted to take a leisurely drive to see the autumn foliage with the possible bonus of a nice lunch en route. River Drivers' Restaurant at Twin Pines Camp was an amazing, unexpected discovery. This isn't just a camping destination for those hearty souls who have traversed the 2,200 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Mt. Katahdin, or a center for year-round outdoor recreation. It is a culinary delight. The lobster bisque is deservedly legendary. In season, the herbs and veggies are picked from the lodge's lakeside gardens. There is an excellent wine list. Interesting and eco-friendly architecture. Gracious wait staff. Peaceful. And then there's that unobstructed view of Mt. Katahdin. Worth a detour. Worth a journey.

Great views and upscale, but not pretentious, atmosphere. Stopped by after a long day of hiking and was greeted warmly and promptly. Server was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Food was well prepared, delivered timely, and tasted very good. Two drinks, appetizers, entrees, desserts, and tip ran about $100 which we felt was about average and overall worth the price. The humus appetizer was very unique and enjoyable. The salmon was a very good dish as well.

The location has a beautiful view of Mt. Katahdin (in nice weather). Service was pleasant. The menu has something for everyone. The crab stuffed haddock was great and the creme brulé wonderful.
