We had a couple of visits at Parkside and Main. One was for drinks on their lovely patio. (Unfortunately, construction workers were laying fresh asphalt to the parking lot, so it was a little smelly.) The second time we had a a very good lunch inside by the window because it was raining. It is a really pretty, spotlessly clean... More

Stopped in for late lunch. Great, fresh burger, very friendly staff (Becky?). Perfect roll used for burger, not plain bun. Heard from many others in area that they also serve a great supper menu. Will definately be stopping in again when back in this area.

A great outdoor lunch venue. Food is good. Menu diverse and staff friendly. Overlooking the lake. American fare. Inside appears to be a ocals gathering. Ride up in your snowmobile or boat to the town slips. Inside dining room as well.

The locals had told us that the homemade desserts here were especially good, and we followed their advice (or tried to, anyway) of ordering dessert at the same time we ordered our meals, because the desserts are so popular that they sell out fast. We didn't get our first choice (blueberry pie), proving the point. Our burgers were very good,... More

We've eaten dinner at Parkside and Main several times over the years and have always had excellent food and service in a friendly enviornment.This year was so different. We were seated quickly. Despite not being very busy, about half full, and having at least 3, maybe 4 wait people, our waitress was very slow greeting us and taking our drink... More

We spent a week in Rangeley during early August and ate out every day but one. Parkside & Main was our favorite even though it was too late and buggy to eat outside on the deck. (We tried.) Inside, the service was friendly, the food tasty and generous and reasonable. Our waitress recommended the fish tacos and she was right.... More

We have been going to Rangeley for many years, but now will likely be going elsewhere in Maine. It's a shame because the food at this restaurant is actually quite good, but the management/service is a disaster. Don't even think of complaining about anything-- they do not take criticism in the slightest. Somehow it became our fault that their service... More

What more can you ask for when the food, brews and service are good! Besides the fact we could walk to from where we stayed...even better yet! Wish they had Allagash White in PA! Oh well guess we'll have to make another road trip!

We went to this establishment on the recommendation of the hosts at the B&B we were staying at. We enjoyed the meal so much the first time that we went back a couple of days later! Food was tasty, menu was varied, service was very good. We sat near the back windows with a view to the outdoor tables and... More
