“Absolutely beautiful restaurant, top quality food”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Top two perks of this place: food and atmosphere
Food is truly amazing, luxury restaurant style. You will not be disappointed. The Lobster Lozada, the chef's specialty, is particularly amazing. Also the chocolate lava cake for dessert.
The restaurant itself is also beautiful - it has a lovely interior, perfect for a dinner out with family or an intimate date.
It's owned by a local Maine couple, so you're supporting small business in Maine!
The only downside is that they are a bit pricey, but it is definitely worth it to have a high caliber, high quality restaurant in this area. Definitely worth a visit (especially if someone else wants to treat you!)

“Best Restaurant in the area!”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

Wow! We ate here last night and we will definately be back! Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful, fresh food. We were a party of 7 and the service was just great! We dine in the Skowhegan/Waterville area frequently and this is by far the absolute best restaurant we have tried so far!

“Great place to eat again and again”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

This place is great, especially for the location. Nice view and good place to have your luncheon. The soups and sandwiches are fresh and tasty made with local produce. (They aren't open in winter - wish they were). Somehow it never gets stale and I think it's because they use fresh ingredients so the flavors pop! Very relaxed and casual and I've never had a problem with the food or service.
