The inventory of restaurants in Jackman are limited, and there are really only two restaurants that I consider of good quality, Schmooses and Mama Bear's. They are very similar, both providing good food, affordability and friendly service. Both are open on different days of the week, therefore, you can visit both. Schmooses has very good food, a good variety of... More

We live on Cape Cod so I know seafood. I got the baked Scallops which had a ritz cracker topping. The Scallops were cooked perfectly. I chose a baked potato and broccoli for my sides. The entire meal was fantastic. My husband got the fish and chips which he said was really good.

Schmooses provides good service and good food, with a varied menu. It is probably the best restaurant in Jackman, as far as out-of-towners might feel.

The menu is limited but they do well with what they offer. The scallops were recommended by a local, and they lived up to the hype. My wife had the haddock, and it was huge, and tasty. The service was good, and friendly. Caution: they have karaoke some some nights at 8, so plan accordingly.

On the menu of this restaurant, there is a surf and turf option with steak and shrimp. When the waitress told us that they had fresh lobster, we asked if it was possible for the shrimp to be substituted for the lobster. Of course, this was not possible at the same price, but even then, we had a very nice... More

We ate at Schooses and Mama Bears while driving to/from Canada, but neither was good. Waitress was much better at Schmooses, but the food was average and the menu just like every other bar/restaurant in Maine. Nothing special.

What a wonderful place to eat at. Came in for lunch and discovered they had a limited lunch menu. However the food we ordered was absolutely delicious. Great nachos, burgers, fries and onion rings. The complimentary popcorn was a big hit with the kids. The dessert menu had a great variety of choices. Dont be discouraged by the outside appearance.... More

Both of us had seafood. The seafood (Haddock and Scallops) was good. Neither of us eat spuds (mashed, potatoes or fries). We asked the waitress if we could substitute vegetables for spuds. She said yes. When we got our check, we were charged extra. The waitress said she questioned the extra charge but the owner was adamant. Getting nickeled and... More

Stopped in for a drink and appetizers. Everyone was friendly and the food was great. I'd def recommend their poutine, being that I'm originally from Canada, I don't often find a place in the States that makes them with the right cheese and this place did. Highly recommend them!

My fiancé and I stopped here to have a nice lunch on Valentine's Day. The bartender wasn't rude but she wasn't very personable either. We both ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. I go a side salad and he got fries with his. I bit into my sandwich which I immediately notice the stale bulky roll it was served on, then... More
