Dennett's Wharf Restaurant

Best view in town, food is simple, very large beer selection!

Bucks Restaurant

1/2 hour drive, excellent food. If you're on your way back from a day on Deer Isle, this is a great stop. Bucks Harbor is the site of the world renowned children's book "One Morning In Maine." You'll recognize a couple of the buildings.

Bah's Bakehouse and Village Inn

Now under new management and name (MarKel's BakeHouse) but it's mostly the same people working (and cooking) there. Hard to beat for breakfast and lunch.

Manor Inn

Our personal favorite for atmosphere and food, and wonderful people. Tell Tom and Nancy we sent you!

Pentagoet Inn

Another favorite. Excellent food and atmosphere, and hosts.


A bit pricey, but I've never left unhappy. Outstanding food, more glamorous than most around. Perfect for a special night out! 1/2 hour drive.

The Brooklin Inn

Again, a bit of a drive (45 minutes), but we love the place. Reliably excellent food, and the (local) oysters are to die for. Their motto: "It's organic if not local, and local if not organic."
