What a great spot! Casually chic and comfortable. The sea bass was amazing and my partner had the pistachio chicken. It was rich & creamy & delicious! Wonderful service as well. If I lived here I'd go every week!

As Bangor residents we go there several times each year with friends and adult children, some of whom are vegetarians. Nice atmosphere with rotating exhibits by local artists on the walls.

Great dining experience. Made a Dark and Stormy for me on request. Mussels appetizer with Cheese and bacon sauce with bread to dip. Sea bass special and Chorizo Gnocchi. Not much to look at out the window, but most attention spent on food. Great time.

Great food, fantastic staff, superb atmosphere - the entire staff came over to congratulate us on our 44th anniversary. One of the best dining spots in Bangor - hands down.
