We ate and enjoyed a cold beer here twice in September 2017. The food was excellent and there was a good selection of beer, both tap and bottle. The service was outstanding with Alise and others offering a lot of useful advice on Mount Katahdin...More

Absolutely delicious salmon and haddock seafood meals. Fine dining in a casual setting with a view. It's off the beaten path, but worth the trip.

Great beer and vittles! The view was spectacular and the ambiance enhanced by the panelling from underwater logging expeditions.

Food was good although service was a bit slow but setting is lovely. This isn't a quiet romantic restaurant but we would definitely go back. My husband's hamburger and fries were amazing.
