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.

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.

I am so glad I drove by this place, turned around, and came back to eat. The guys who run it are friendly and fun. The lobster roll was delicious and reasonably priced. The moosetracks ice cream was delicious.

It's a little takeout on the side of the road in Machias, Maine. Don't let the small size of the place fool you, the food is BIG on flavor. And the hospitality was really good too.

Beautiful spot on the side of the road. Great Maine to sphere with friendly fast service. Loved it. Vegetarian options there and very, very dog friendly. Corgi beside us got a free ice cream with a biscuit on top.

If you can't make your own, then the crab rolls at Riverside are as close to nirvana that one can get !!!! And the folks behind the counter really make the visit worthwhile
