This was our first Thanksgiving dinner out, not home cooked. We saw an ad in the local paper about a dinner here and gave it a shot. They had an opening, so we went a little early to take in the views of the mountains from the lake shore. Though cloudy, it was still awesome. The restaurant wasn't huge, but... More

This was a pleasant surprise after what we found in Millenocket, which is a hiking town. Just came for dinner, but they offer a lot more. The drive there was weird, all dirt paths and barely lit. Looks like a scary movie until suddenly this gorgeous cabin appears around the corner.

Good food, good service. We were two families of four and they had plenty of room for us with great beer, good drinks and good pub fare.

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 enjoyed talking to them. The menu had some different options and our food was delicious.

My wife and I stopped here after a drive on the Golden Road. The food was good and the service was excellent. It is a great location and is worth a visit.

I came here for lunch and had the fish and chips. Food was amazing! It's in a great location, and the service was great! Food came pretty quickly after we ordered it, even for a group of six people. I'd certainly come here again.

The restaurant was recommended for us to go to for our anniversary dinner, and considering the very way out remote location, it is very good. We dressed up for the occasion, but you don't really need to as they know their neighborhood. I don't know if the place had a second floor which would have given the touted view a... More

This is the best restaurant we found in the area, near Millinocket. View from window of the lake is beautiful. Even met Senator Collins there! Every course was great, very highly recommended.

Definitely the nicest place to get dinner in the area with excellent views, nice lounge with local brews & fire to stand around outside. Great place to wander down to the lake after to catch the stars. Service was good although a little disorganized.
