Seafood | Kennebunk, Maine

During our recent dinner, we took advantage of happy hour pricing for drinks and "salties". We also enjoyed a shared Caesar salad and each had a small plate: a delicious Johnny cake with smoked salmon and sour cream and a fabulous bratwurst plate with roasted potatoes and braised red cabbage. We loved the entire experience! More

Seafood | Kennebunkport, Maine

Stripers is great. They are staying open all winter and still have happy hour and new early diner deals. We really need to give them our support. All year it is a great place, where you can relax on the lawn with horsdouvers and drinks and look at the Kennebunk River. In the winter it is still great. More

We went to the Brunswick Tavern for Valentines Day dinner out. The service was Great ! Food was awesome..The only thing that was not wonderful was our table location. I had asked for a quiet table and we were seated at a table next to the bar and the servers were going in and out.. We still had a great time and would go again.. More

Greek | Portland, Maine

My husband and I both agreed that this is one of the best meals we have had in Portland. Cozy atmosphere, outstanding food, great wine. While pricey, the portions were decently-sized, especially the fried sheep's milk cheese appetizer (which was delicious!) and the overall taste, quality of ingredients, presentation, etc. felt worth the price. We had the duck and lamb entrees and both were exceptional. Baklava for dessert was the perfect ending. We have already recommended Emilitsa to co-workers and friends and look forward to going back again! More

You have to see the view to believe it here! Our food, 7 courses, was exceptional, had a red and a white bottle and both were very good. It's expensive, but I think worth it. More

18 Central Oyster Bar & Grill18 Central Oyster Bar & Grill
$$$$
Oyster Bar | Rockport, Maine, Maine

18 Central is exactly the kind of eatery that should thrive on the midcoast: it’s unpretentious and focuses on core ingredients beloved by most.
Reminiscent of old-school Boston steakhouses, with its dark wood and high ceiling, 18 Central is the perfect home for Chef Duffy’s cuisine. At the far end of the long bar, the fires of an open kitchen flicker.
The raw bar offers a daily selection of pristine oysters from Maine and elsewhere, served with a choice of mignonettes, a multi-dimensional scallion-ginger that benefits from a nip of fish sauce and cilantro. The wood-grilled-tomato cocktail sauce, with its deep, rich flavor and lingering burn, will most likely prompt a second order of the plump cocktail shrimp.
An impressive wine list that emphasizes refreshing, high-acid wines that make good companions to rich food. Bottles to complement selections from the raw bar include classics like Muscadet, Picpoul de Pinet, and Bordeaux Blanc, as well as modern wines

Discover Maine

There are very few regions in the U.S. like the state of Maine. The Acadian culture has produced an entirely unique food type, and nothing proves this like the local restaurant scene. With some of the freshest seafood available, Maine has become the great lobster capital of New England and America. Many of the classic locally owned establishments cook a wide selection of shellfish in various concoctions, including crab cakes and gumbos that are heavy on the cream and potatoes, bringing out comfort food at its finest for seafood lovers. Of course, there are still many national chain locations and local steakhouses, but the king of cuisine in this great state is its delectable seafood delights.
