Ok, not expecting to find a place that serves awesome mac-n-cheese, but this place does. Table ordered plain, lobster and Peurco (pork). All three were of the hook.

Mac-n-cheese is one of those things we try wherever we go around the country. Hard to mess up, but difficult to be the best. While I will say this was not the best we've had, it is darn close. Very surprised and satisfied!

Ok, table also had burgers with local beef and where quite good. Lobster roll was ok. When you've had LR's in Boston and Maine, hard to compete. Which the roll would have been less crispy/toasted. Lots of large lobster chunks, but not as fresh as you'll get in harbor towns up North. Service was good. Interior very nice. Even though they do not have a pet friendly seating area, the place has a focus on dogs. Lots of dog pictures on wall in bar area. Owners must be dog lovers.

If you eat here, you should be very pleased.

Food and Atmoshpere were excellent. Great Pizza and Salads. Staff very attentive. Great Bonus feature of thousands of Dog Pictures on the walls. If you are a dog owner, you are sure to find one that looks exactly like yours

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk personnel of our inn, and exceed all our expectations. We had anticipated a nice venue, but the decor, which reminded us of a National Park lodge, was exceeded only by the quality of the food. The trout was perfectly prepared, and several other local selections were available. A reservation isn't necessary, but would be advisable due to the number of both local and tourist patrons.

My husband and I had a one night getaway and had to be selective with where we would eat dinner. I chose Bistro Roca and am so glad we did. Unique, small menu with upscale items. I ordered the chicken dish. I don't usually order chicken breast because it can be plain, overly sauced, or dry. This was the best chicken I've ever had. I asked the waiter how they cooked it as I couldn't place the flavors. The brine it first - and cook it with the skin on. So delicious, I'd have a hard time ordering something else next time. My husband had the fish special and that too was flavorful and delicious. He also ordered the creme brûlée which had a lavender flavor. Amazing. Just enough without overpowering it. If you're having a hard time deciding, this is a great place to try.
