Stopped here for lunch, traveling through on our way somewhere else. Nice setting, cute decor. For us that's where it ends. Service very slow, food was not very good. When we were ready to pay and leave I had to get up go find a restaurant employee to try to get my bill. Would not return to this restaurant.

We were visiting Ft. Kent for the Ploye Festival and managed to feast at the Swamp Buck Restaurant. This restaurant is not for the weight conscious! The menu selections were exclusively high calorie, loaded with cheese or fried. This may be an attraction for some, but as a Lifetime Weight Watcher, it was scary! The rotisserie chicken appeared to be... More

Okay, so I'm a snob. What do want when you grow up with gourmet home cooks? The Swampbuck was a pleasant surprise. Pristinely clean, friendly efficient service and one of the best pieces of grilled salmon that I've had in months.

Mediocre tonight at best. Waitress could not remember our order (pen and paper would help dear). Then 2 of our 4 orders came out wrong. My steak looked good but did not have any flavor. My wife's steak tips had no flavor too and were over cooked. I am sure they will muddle along with the locals because there is... More

I ate here quite regularly during my working career. Once a month I would overnight in Fort Kent and I would eat here most evenings. No matter what your appetite is, they have something that will fill the bill. I generally chos one of their steaks - but no matter what I decided on, it was always good. I recently... More
