Four friends out for a drive and found Alena’s on Trip Advisor. Two had the 1/2 Catfish Plate, 1 grouper and 1 had the Flounder. All were good, lightly breaded and deep fried. This is New England style so no hush puppies.

They have the best clam strips and shrimp around, lightly breaded and fried to perfection. They have a great menu with plenty of seafood and fish choices. They are now open for the season 7 days a week.

Maybe you'll like it if your a snowbird from Maine. Otherwise, avoid. Bad food, bad service, and they close their ice cream shop in the summer because they don't care to serve the locals
