Large portions and great prices. We had the steak sandwich and eggplant special for lunch. We could have shared both meals. Love the decor. Everyone was friendly. This is a must try restaurant

If you find yourself hungry at the north end of U.S. 1 in Fort Kent, Maine, along the St. John River that separates the United States from Canada, The Swamp Buck is a safe bet. It sits on Main Street without fanfare, just a simple...More
