Madelyn's has a wide menu from fish to burgers and more ice cream dishes than you can eat in a summer. There is a pleasant back yard with tables shaded by trees, and a steady flow of tourists and locals.

It's always good, fresh fried seafood and a pretty extensive menu, something for everyone! Great for families and a wonderful kid place, they have a playground and ice cream!

A good quick stop for food on Deer Isle. Food was just okay for the most part (though the lobster rolls were tasty and the burger was good too). Some things were a bit too greasy. Expensive for what you get. But, the shakes were...More
