We enjoyed tasty clam chowder and crab rolls on the Port Clyde dock in Maine. Dip Net restaurant is tucked away behind Port Clyde's General Store, but well worth your finding it. Typical Maine seafood fare, and commendable draft beer selection. The ocean view may...More

The fried oysters with spicy aioli were excellent. Best for seafood. They unfortunately were out of fried clams by 5 pm. Blueberry pie was very good. Nice for people and boat watching.
