I had visitors from "away" and we wanted to have a nice dinner on a Saturday night. We had drinks, appetizers, and dinner and the service, atmosphere and the meals were excellent. We shared the smoked salmon plate and bruschetta plate with cocktails. For the main course, we ordered pork, duck breast pasta and scallops and a small caesar salad... More

This restaurant is the best restaurant in Bangor. Great prices, large portions, excellent food. Don't forget the half price martinis during happy hour, which ends at 7. Small place but tastefully done and a nice bar area. A must go to restaurant, you won't be disappointed.

Excellent starters - especially the smoked salmon and Lobster BLT. Next time a return may have one or the other as a main. Had perfectly grilled chicken breast with tomato, pineapple, caper with sriracha sauce that had just the right combination of heat and complexity. Husband had tomato, feta and banana pepper pizza - excellent. The carrot cake is a... More

Called to make reservations for 4. No reservations taken (the place is SMALL so I understnad)...arrived early to be sure we had a table for 4 when our guests arrived. NOT AN ISSUE. The hostess was SO wonderful, instead of having us wait at the bar, she seated us knowing our guests would be about 15 minutes. (It wasn't standing... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. Both service and food were very good. Enjoyed all the cocktail choices and the selection on menu was large (maybe too large?). My husband enjoyed the crab cakes for appetizer and noodle stir fry for main while I had a pizza which was quite good. Would definitely go back again.

We popped in here a few years ago after driving 600 miles. The staff greeted us warmly and the food was great. The water pipes all over the streets outside, making driving a nightmare, were soon images that our taste buds helped us forget. So we came back a few years later. Not always a good idea. But, basically, this... More

Best shrimp scampi [$23] I've ever had: not too spicy, not swimming in sauce! Spinach salad [$13] and lobster BLT [$15] equally top notch. Stay for the truffle cake [$11] - it is superb! A U.S. Senate staffer recommended this place and she was right!

Excellent food, nice atmosphere, waitstaff was outstanding. We were traveling in Bangor and had never been to 11 Central, so glad we went. Goes on our list of one of our favorites in the area.
