This is still a top notch restaurant. The service is awesome. Justin was fabulous and attentive. The food is delightful. Hands down the best scallops around. Delicious from start to finish. My mom raved about the prime rib as well. The carrot cake was yummy!

We have been visiting MacLeod's since we first started coming up to Maine on vacation in the early 90's. The restaurant's interior and menu have changed over the years but the meals are still excellent. We have almost always been here for dinner but now that we have moved up to Maine, we take day trips and decided to stop... More

Stop here maybe once or twice a year and have a glass or two and eat meatloaf and mashed potatoes at the bar. Old country music [think Merle Haggard, "If I make it through December"] shifting to blues in the evening. Cameron is a most congenial bartender and everyone is friendly and responsive. And it's just across the street from... More

I've eaten here several times and always had a good experience. Food is good quality and well prepared. NOT the typical Maine fare where vegetables are overdone and fried foods are greasy and laden with batter. The menu has a good variety. They also have a nice beer selection that includes Baxter Stowaway IPA. Service has always been friendly and... More

Not many local beer options. Good waitress service, food was above average. Nachos were OK. Chowder was hot, not very creamy. Steak and... More

McLeods use to be a regular stop for my wife and I. We moved so we normally don't go to Bucksport, but we did today at lunchtime. The lunch menu had many intriguing items. We both chose the soup and sandwich choice. Hers was a coconut curry chicken noodle soup and a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich. I had haddock... More
