Super friendly owners, free dog ice cream and great fried food - what more could you ask for? We sampled the fried clams, fried pickle chips and the ice cream. All humans and dogs were completely satisfied.

Stopped here for lunch while visiting in the area. The lobster roll was delicious, full of lobster meat. Onion rings were good, and root beer floats too. Super-friendly staff, and they gave us a free cup of ice cream for our dog. Also had free...More

The most friendly atmosphere. Food is delicious. The monster size haddock roll is enough for 3 people yet the prices are more then reasonable. Can't wait till they open back up... Needs to be year round!!!

A local had recommended another takeout place in town, but it was closed so we tried this take out. The food was okay, but overpriced for what we got. I would recommend Helen's or The Blue Bird Ranch Restaurant over this spot.

Travelling along Route 1 (which is so scenic) and came across this gem. Huge menu, supports local fishermen too. Super friendly, quick and one of the best lobster rolls EVER. Great onion rings too.

Quirky take-out place located on route 1 just on the way out of Machias ( if you are headed towards Eastport & Calais ) overlooking the river. Run by a re-located Boston couple and free ice cream for your canine. Lobster rolls are ok and...More

You just gotta love Riverside Takeout. The seafood is fresh and local, breaded and made to order, and served hot with any condiment your little heart may desire. It's a perennial fav, and locals know it as some of the best food around.
