It's not bad and they give you plenty of food but I find that they must use too much sugar, Everything is too sweet and I leave feeling yucky

Despite a staff shortage we had a great time. The one server warned us it could be a wait. I’m glad we waited I had the seafood platter and my partner had the Lobster roll. Food was really good.

We stopped here on our way to New Hampshire for lunch , not expecting anything special . The waitress was pleasant , prices were average and the Crab Rangoons we ordered for an app were some of the best I’ve had !

We stopped in for lunch after realizing that Sunday River Brew Pub is closed. Wow, we were blown away! There are a lot of food choices. The atmosphere is unique and inviting. The waitress was PHENOMENAL! We loved the music. Wonderful experience all around.

6 out of 5 stars. Why? The attention to detail (large green onion sliced 45 topping FRESH grilled/perfectly charred Maine sea scallops, and look at those perfectly symmetrical Filet Mignon grill marks), unmatched cocktails, and a genuine no nonsense, hard working pride deep-winter survival ethos...paired with a perpetually accurate production in the kitchen and bar. Observe the visual aides...then check in to experience Western Maine at its best: The Lure.More

It was a week before ski season started but we are also still in the middle of COVID. We were traveling here for a mini-vacation and stopped here for lunch. The google hours were not accurate, so check their Facebook page. During covid it was...reservation only, and masks required when entering and when getting up from table. Because of their measures we felt safe eating there! Food was all made fresh and to order. We got the Green curry with vegetables (only criticizm was it could have used more vegetables) and Dunken noodles with tofu, as well as spring rolls. Everything was excellent. Drunken noodles and extra large portion size, so we were happy to take leftovers home for dinner.Both dishes were on the very spicy side but delicious. Service attentive and prompt and had no issuesMore

I would eat there every night if my waist line could handle it! Everything on the menu is amazing. I am not a sushi fan, but those with me that are, thoroughly enjoy the offerings at the Lure.

Can't say enough about the wonderful Sushi choices at The Lure. I'm in love with "The SNOWBALL" it has yummy tuna and other delights. I get that roll and one of the hot rolls to compliment it. Along with an outstanding set of taps ..this...place just keeps giving. My vote for top shelf in Western Maine.More

The food wasn't bad, the lobster roll was tiny, the ribeye was amazing. The issue I had was that we were there an hour and a half, and people that came in after us had their order taken before us. Normally I wouldn't be too...upset, but if the waitress doesn't take the orders in Order of who comes in, it can cause a couple to wait an hour and a half for Their lunch. The ribeye was cooked perfectly, lots of onions and peppers, the wings with a ginger sauce we not bad but please do yourself a favor and don't order a lobster roll here. It was fresh don't get me wrong but I put more tunafish on a sandwich than the amount of lobster on This roll~ The Thai food looked plentiful and smelled fantastic, the pasta dishes looked large as well.More

The servings here are very generous and usually enough to take some home. The staff is always friendly and helpful with any questions or suggestions on what to order. I recommend this place to get a reasonable priced meal and it also has a wonderful...selection of many micro-brews to choose from. Some of the top brews to try!!More

Have eaten here a few times. The beer selection is awesome. The Thai food is great- a LOT of choices, and it's very nicely prepared. The only downside is that the service- waiting for food- is a little slow; ;believe it's because the chef is...an artist! Table service is good, as far as getting drinks refilled...and the food is worth the wait. The portions are HUGE, and delicious- very happy to take home for a second meal!More

This family owned restaurant was excellent. My wife had the Crispy Chicken and Shrimp and I had the Pineapple Fried with Pork. The portions were HUGE. Both were delicious. The locals all know the quality of the food and are regular patrons. If you're in...Rumford and are hungry be sure to stop. Excellent!More
