I was excited to try this because of the reviews. Maybe I just didn't order the right thing. There was only one table to sit at which was taken. The workers were super friendly though.

Last I knew they used the brand Neighborhood which I have found at Market Basket. But the key is cooking it in peanut oil with onion's and having a steamed bun. I've tried to recreate but there's just something magical... More

Never eaten at the Wasses in Damariscotta. Probably just as good as the other locations. As far as gift certificates call them and inquire - 207-338-6431. I only review a place if I have eaten there. Damariscotta just... More
