Visiting the area before the season, we had very little choice of restaurant, but it didn't matter because there was great food, friendly staff and amazing views

Cozy restaurant with North Woods décor. Great lobster choices and lobster bisque. Lobster rolls were a hit and my Haddock sandwich was huge.

Service was perfect! Nice, friendly staff and service with a real smile. Food was delicious. This place was totally unexpected, we truly were just driving down dirt roads and ran across this gem! In fact we eat there twice in one day.

Not a lot of upscale dining in Millinocket so this was a wonderful surprise. The only thing that surpassed the food was the view of Katahdin and the sunset. Our server and the woman working at the gift counter were both extremely friendly and we...More
