We travel quarterly or more to this special eatery, even beyond our travel route(s) just to receive the tasty menu, especially their blueberry pie. The atmosphere is inviting like joining a family meal. The friendly service keeps us returning to enjoy too. An extra delight...More

I'm a non seafood eater but decided to stick with lobster, we're in Maine after all. I wasn't disappointed, it had non"seafoody" taste to it. Juli was our server, super friendly and added a little humor to the meal.

When I can, I love to eat at this place. The lobster stew is to die for and they always seem to make food the old fashion way...real butter, from scratch. I've had all the locals fried food and Bartley's give almost twice as much...More
