You need to get there within an hour of opening if you don't want to wait. After that it could be 60-90 minute wait. But the food is great, we had filet mignon, baked potato and salad, warm dinner rolls. Good desserts!

Undeniably the best steakhouse in Maine. Quality decadent cuts of prime beef in a great atmosphere with very pleasant and attentive servers. We go early to avoid the long wait that is nightly in July and August. Food will absolutely not disappoint if you enjoy...More
