I'll add the "New" Friendly Restaurant in Perry--you would be hard pressed to find a better lobster roll anywhere! And another of my favorites, though further away is Ruth and Wimpy's in Hancock.....I know I've mentioned them before but they're great!
Thank you for the welcome! I managed to come home in October for the weekend. I still make hot pop overs from my Maine cook book. First Pizza cook at tri city? WOW what history! But I am biased and I drive a Georgia truck that is personalized with "A Mainah" Ohhh one more

When I went home I made a bee line for Weathervane in Brewer "Brewah!"

Welcome to the forum!! The Weathervane has a good lunch menu, I like to get the "1/2 and 1/2" with scallops and haddock. I haven't been there in a couple years but always enjoyed it on a shopping day that included Marden's.

We ate at Weathervane in Belfast twice over 4 days, because the kids wanted to go back and see the "friend" (the manager) and the lobsters. The ladies in there remembered us and asked all about how our trip was going and even remembered where we were headed days before the second meeting with them and wanted to make sure we found our way alright. It was quite impressive! I just can't say enough about how kind and friendly and helpful Mainers were to us.

And the food was excellent! They had a corn chowder that was divine!!!

Looks like a little dive diner but a friend recommended it to us and said the cook from the Chandler House Restaurant in Calais bought it and now cooks there....

yes! I'm glad you mentioned that....the food is great!! the drive is nice too, out of town a little bit but not too far out for it to be inconvenient. DH does gift certificates for his staff each year from a local business--this year it was the Nook & Cranny!

What a nice old time expression "Nook and Cranny" It is darn right picturesque!

We vacation at Goose Rocks Beach (Kennebunkport) 2-3 times per year...my favorites in that area are:
1. The Wayfarer in Cape Porpoise. GREAT breakfast. Have only been for dinner once and it was very good.
2. The Ramp in Cape Porpoise. Nice, casual place out by the pier. It's small so be prepared to wait.
3. Nunan's Lobster Hut in Cape Porpoise. Classic lobster shack. Also be prepared to wait.
4. Federal Jacks in Kennebunk (just over the bridge from Kennebunkport). Great place to bring kids, good brews and food.

Some of the food at New Friendly in Perry is pretty greasy...be careful. Try The Waterworks (used to be the Water Company) in Rockland. Everything is excellent with good portions.

Helen's isn't like it used to be in the '80's. We haven't had a bad experience, but it's not as good as back then.

I once ate at a restuarant in Eastport that our very own and much beloved Mollysmiles waitressed at one summer. We may have been like ships that passed in the night but then again....maybe not. It was called the Cannery and the decor reflected the building's previous use as a sardine packing factory. Out here in California I thought of it again when I went to Montery and visited the warf and "cannery row" of Steinbeck fame.
