This spot is a nice little gem on the Penobscot River. A great place to go for dinner or lunch with outside seating. I enjoy sitting by the fire and having drinks with friends. A great drink list and also appetizers.

The food was ok, but not great, service was ok, somewhat basic dining. We have not been back, there are much better options in the Bangor area.

Fresh seafood, casual dining, great cocktails and good service at a very reasonable price. The crabcakes (either the appetizer or dinner) are wonderful. Enjoy a cocktail first while sitting around the firepit and watching the river. You won't regret your choice!

Someone told us that we could get a good seafood dinner at McLaughlins. We were very disappointed that our shrimp were so small and were pale in color. Our fish was very tender, but wet. The smashed potato was the best part of the meal....More

Not sure we were told they were closing at 630pm on a Saturday night and shown the door.. Guess we will never find out.
