We tried this place for the first time and what a pleasant surprise. The owners couldn't be nicer, the food was excellent (and very reasonably priced for the quality), and the clean and comfortable atmosphere is one of casual elegance.

The staff were very friendly and personal. The music was sweet, but the food, that was different and excellent! We regret not making the drive sooner. It won't be long before we go back.

Thank you for your kind words. We discovered a similar dish to the shrimpcargot during a vacation to Florida and knew we had to bring it back to Maine. One of our favorites for sure! Cheers! Mike & Colleen
