We have eaten here before when in the area and enjoyed the food immensely. This time we ordered the fish and chips. Hubby said his was very good. Mine started out good then the batter came off the underside of the fish and it was...More

We love fish and chips and try to sample wherever we go. However, this is the Gold Standard of fried haddock that we have ever found!! Also, the fried scallops are great as well!! All come with fries or mash and great Maine coleslaw. A...More

The server was nice, the iced tea was great. My boyfriend had fish and chips, which were really greasy. I had fried clams, which had a strangely sweet corn-bread like batter. Well, that meal took away any desire to have any more fried seafood on...More

This comfortable local restaurant served the best fried scallops and whole belly clams I have ever tasted! The portions are very generous and served hot. The waitress was attentive. Can't wait to return!!

Roadside diner about 20 min south of Calais near the turnoff for Eastport on Rt. 1. Menu features deep-fried seafood. Lobster rolls available but not cheap ( about $18). Check the specials on the white board when you come in (behind the main counter). Chowders/stews...More

And obviously the go-to of most people in this area of Washington Co. Homemade desserts, which I'm assured are delicious. We never have room after lunch to even consider dessert. Great loosemeat burgers, homemade frenchfries, if you request them, fried clams, fish and chips. And...More

Nothing like local with no pretensions. Good seafood, which is what I mostly go for. Large portions. Pleasant staff. Like many places in the area, don't ever judge the book by its cover.
