My husband and I went here for both lunch and dinner. Our server was lovely and very attentive and polite. The atmosphere was relaxing and inviting. The food was just amazing. We tried their filet mignon, mussels for an appetizer and also enjoyed a desert. Everything was cooked to order fresh and delicious. For lunch we enjoyed homemade soup salad... More

Have dined here many times and this sweet little restaurant never disappoints. The menu is varied from season to season and we have never had meal we didn't love. Highly recommend.

I so badly want to give this restaurant a stellar review. They do some things really well. Their bread pudding is great. My main, however, was a mediocre salad (the dressing was good) and a meat dish without the meat (that is how I ordered it). It was written in the menu as pasta with fresh vegetables. It was, in...

I should have gone for the stuffed haddock. The chicken marsala was more the latter than the former. The desserts were to die for.

Oct 12 - Didn't get there until just after 7. I thought I might not have time to enjoy a meal, but not so. The dinner music was relaxing. My meal of baked haddock, a salad with goat cheese & cranberries, chunks of sweet potato sprinkled with toasted coconut, and sautéed carrots, summer squash, and purple cabbage was just perfect!...

We arrived about 6:30 and waited 15 minutes for a cocktail. Then waited and waited for our meal with no one really paying attention to us. Then when our meal,arrived around 7:30 or later we were told they close at 8:00. Then while we were eating a female chef came from out back and started to set up,tables for next... More

We have ordered from here (we did take-out) a few times now. The steaks are made to perfection and the salads were AMAZING! The soup they had available was good, too. They even let us borrow some real silverware as we were staying in a (not-so-great) motel down the road. Can not speak to the dining experience as I stated... More

While in the area with my husband for a conference, we decided to try this location based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and their website. It is a café with good service, maybe a little pricy for the area, but we felt we received value for our money. We enjoyed the crab cakes, the 8 oz. filet and the... More

Great food ! I have eaten many places if you're in northern Maine and looking for a nice meal don't miss out. Not the best place for kids in my opinion but very nice for a date.
