Refuelled here with coffee, water and juice and some savouries and pastries all of which were great ! Did not have enough room to have a burger as I recall they were generous and filling and of course oh so tasty - next time !

We took a trip to Owls Head General Store for one of their famous juicy burgers. The store has a few tables inside- but we chose to enjoy the weather and eat our meal on one of their nice picnic tables. Yummy!!!!

Heard about this place, that at one time it had the best burger in Maine. Is it a large burger?...Yes. Is it anything special?...No. I was expecting something different but I've had better burgers. I did like their grilled cheese with bacon though. One great thing was their whoopie pies! I thought it was a vanilla one but it turned... More

We heard the burgers were good so we had to try them out! They were FANTASTIC!! You cannot always get a good rare burger but we did here!!! Little general store with a few outside tables in bright colors. My husband had excellent blueberry pie. We will definitely go back next year.

Owls Head General Store was voted to have the "Best Burgers in Maine" by The Food network. So of course I had to find out for myself. The fact that there was quite a number of vehicles' there lead me to believe that the food just might be good or that everyone was there for the first time. I ordered... More

We stay right around the corner from this charming general store and love the quaintness of this little bend in the road. We're lucky to have discovered it along with thousands of others. So good and right in our back yard!

A great little knook and crannie spot in Owls Head not to be missed. Cheeseburger the best, a real honest to goodness cheeseburger like they use to be before all these fast food joints came around! A nice laid back spot to just sit and enjoy! I didn't get the 7 napkin cheeseburger but got the deluxe cheeseburger and used... More

Best burger I have ever had. It is so delicious, we try to make the 6 hour trip from CT to ME once a year. It's messy but well worth it!

We were driving back from the OWL'S HEAD lighthouse and happened to see the OWLS HEAD general store. We noted that the name can be misleading as it is now more of a small scale restaurant. A day later we called in an order for the FAMOUS seven napkin burger and we were not disappointed. ( We could have eaten... More
