On our continuing quest for a daily lobster roll while on our ME vacation, we got lucky with a parking space just in front of the Asticou and even luckier when, after a very short wait, were seated on the porch overlooking the gardens. Wow!...More

Would love to give this 5 stars, as it was a neat old Inn, very friendly and accommodating service, good popovers, and food nicely presented. I can even look past the somewhat less than service oriented hostess and person who seated us, because our waiter...More

We visited the Asticou for cocktails, and popovers. Sounds like an odd combo, but when you visit this area a popover is a must. They are delicious, and cooked perfectly at the Asticou. Warm, soft, crisp, eggy and the jam was yummy too. I was...More
