I travel for work and end up eating by myself quite a bit. I enjoy eating at locally owned restaurants rather than chains so I depend on TripAdvisor to point me to great places. I'm in York Maine for a meeting and TripAdvisor led me to "The Central". It was as I said in the title "Exceptional". The Central is a locally owned and managed place. Nothing fancy but the food was great. When I got there it was obvious to me that the reviews were correct. No seats at the bar were available and the rest of the place was packed. A young lady came from behind the bar to ask for my drink order and then offered me a menu. It turns out that my server is the co-owner Kiersten. Kiersten suggested the Pastrami sandwich with hand cut fries. My meal was fantastic, That's all I can say. Service was great, people were friendly just a great place to enjoy a meal. Do yourself a favor, when you are anywhere near York, Maine enjoy a meal here.
