I just love the place next door. Shaw's Fish and Lobster Wharf. Best lobsters I've ever had. Great place to go enjoy a cold beer on a warm summer afternoon.

Shaw's always had excellent lobster stew--though I haven't been there for a few years. Davinci's at the Bates Mill in Lewiston has great food, also

When we first got this ole time favorite building the ole "Carl's Restaurant, it needed some work since it had been retired for a few years. What a job we had to commit to on the inside. To save some I decided to hit tag sales and thrift stores to decorate most of the 3 rooms of the restaurant. A wonderful response from our customers on the decore. Recycle and reuse family favorite items for our walls really worked out. This summer we will be doing our best to work on the outside of the building since we spent the first year & a half working on the inside.
Our menu grows next month too.
Well, thanks again for the feedback. Have a wonderful day!!!
Sincerely,
Tami

I wanted to add Roy's All Steak Hamburgers in Auburn to the list. It's on The corner of Minot Ave. and Route 4 in Auburn. Excellent Hamburgers on steamed buns. Don't forget to add the grilled carmelized onions and hand cut french fries! Yum!

Here's one of my girls "throwing" pizza that is "wicked good."

I did a job in Rangeley, then had to drop off a couple of replacement items the following day in Jackman. I ended up in some geezly place called Eustis (or something like that.) The only way I know the name was because I ended up stopping at somebodys house to ask just where the living daylights I was, and how do I get to where I want to be. They were kind enough to draw me a map through a bunch of woods roads and I think frigging goat trails to get over close to Jackman. Somewhere in my wanderings that day I ate at a gas station that looked like it stepped right out of a 30's postcard inside. They had a few tables and no menu, just a chalkboard nailed to the wall with the days lunch offerings written on lined notebook paper and taped to it. (no kidding, giant azzed nails drove in and clinched over the sides holding it in place). I don't know if it was because my stomach thought my throat had been cut and I was 3/4 starved to death or because it was really that good, but they had the BEST meatloaf and mashed potatoes I have ever had in a restaurant.

There is no way I would EVER find that place again. I drove through places I had never even knew we had places named. Dallas, Sandy River Plantation, Salem, Bigalow, and numerous others. Some had a sign by the road and NOTHING else that I could see. Not even a house that was by the road I was on. I thought I was beginning to live a Stephen King novel for a minute. Somewhere along the 350 miles I drove that day I found that place.

my family had a camp in eustis for over 50 yrs, beautiful area!! the road from eustis to rangely,(believe its rte 16) is one of the most scenic roads in maine.

the meatloaf place you mentioned, sounds like a store in philips/strong area i use to stop at yrs ago....they had the best home-cooked meals!!
its comical, you never know what you will see/find when you walk into a general store, in rural towns in maine,,,anything from a deer/moose head staring at you as you walk in, to a sit down counter with the best food in the area.
in sabattus,(just outside lewiston) there's a hardware store that has a mounted (stuffed) lion, and other safari animal mounts all over the store.
i found it quite interesting, not everyday you see that!!

just dont have a stuffed sea-gull!! (a restaurant owner had an old stuffed sea-gull (in camden, i believe) and the state confiscated it!!, it had been there for years!!
