A medium-rare Burger is really a medium-rare Burger. I liked the rueban, it was moist, full of sourkraut and thousand island dressing on the side. Chicken fingers are great. Chopped sirloin steak, gravy and potatoes- awesome. Great service, good prices.

We were on our way to Bangor traveling on US 2. This was the only restaurant for miles and we were already hungry. I ordered their Lobster Bisque and I was stunned by the taste. One of the best I've had.
