Having launched its first ship over 400 years ago, and still home to the Bath Iron Works shipbuilders, the city of Bath is proud of its maritime history. The Maine Maritime Museum celebrates this long heritage, with 25 acres of historic waterfront featuring original 19th century shipyards and exhibits. Named one of the "Best Small Cities in America," Bath offers visitors the opportunity to wander down treelined streets, along the Kennebec River and past beautifully restored 19th century homes.

Prime rib is served every Friday night along with various other specials which usually includes a few seafood dishes. You can also enjoy a glass of wine or a beer with your meal.
Thanks to reviews by other TripAdvisor members, I easily selected Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery as my place for lunch in Bath, the City of Ships. It was also conveniently located not far from the Maine Maritime Museum where I went earlier in the day.
The Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery takes its name from its locale. Winnegance is an area made up from parts of Bath, West Bath, and Phippsburg.
It was a cozy café-style place with tables and chairs of different heights. Two of the tables were hand-painted by an employee. One tabletop had an octopus; the other had a lobster. I sat at the lobster table in the front window that overlooked a cove on Winnegance Creek at its confluence with the Kennebec River. Winnegance Lake is on the other side of Route 209. The view was scenic even in winter.
The lunch menu had a few hot meals, soup, and some sandwiches.
After some discussion with the waitress, I ultimately chose the Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich at $14.95 + 8% Maine Meals Tax of $1.20 for a total of $16.15. It came with pickle chips and a bag of potato chips.
It was about a 20-minute wait for my sandwich. It was well worth the wait. The sandwich featured slices of Swiss and American cheeses and about 3 oz. of chopped lobster spread throughout the sandwich on wheat berry bread. The rich nutty flavor of the wheat berry bread tasted great to me with the cheese and the lobster. It was excellent. It was definitely a sandwich I’d eat again.
Service was great. The place was clean.
The bakery section had some tempting goodies.
During my visit, I got a look at the breakfast menu. It had more items than the lunch menu. On the next visit to the Mid-Coast Region, I plan to have breakfast there.
I rate Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery at 5.0. I highly recommend eating here.

Breakfast and Lunch all day along with amazing baked goods. Healthy, gluten free and Paleo options available. Closed for winter break January 22-March 15
We were hungry so stopped in at early lunch time. Breakfast served all day. The menu was awesome. Everything you could want. Kool little bakery inside also. I always like to go where the locals go. We ordered the destroyer omelet, Rueben, cinnamon swirl toast, crab croissant, and veggie omelet,with side of bacon and corned beef hash. Sooooo good! Want to return!

Cafe Creme has a wide (and creative) selection of espresso coffees and smoothies. Teas also available, along with yummy homemade baked goods and luncheon salads/sandwiches/quiches. This our "go to" for a pick-me-up when we go to Bath for shopping -- and an essential coffee stop when heading further north on Maine's scenic Route 1. It's located at the top of Bath's main shopping street, across from City Hall and the kitchen store. Free wi-fi. Very cozy, comfy, welcoming setting. Always full of folks sitting at cafe tables or on the numerous sofa-chair-coffee table settings. It's a really nice place to bring your laptop, then browse on the laptop while you sip and graze on cafe offerings. The atmosphere is very welcoming and homey. They have a wonderful, very friendly, helpful staff. Many "thumbs up" on this wonderful cafe! On-street parking is available but you also can find a large free lot on Water Street, just down behind the main shopping block. It's an easy walk from there.

Stopped with a relatively large group of people. They knew we were coming as a group. Food and beverages didn't take long to arrive. It's supposed to be the place to stop for seafood. I don't eat seafood, so had chicken instead. Rather plain, not much taste but I didn't leave hungry. There is a lot to see inside the restaurant. All sorts of antiques and collectibles on display. No real rhyme or reason for the collections and they have been there awhile. I felt it made the place look dusty. I would stop again. There is a bar and there is a great view overlooking the marsh.

Wally Plant ran Plants Seafood for what seemed like hundreds of years and only sold seafood that he would have eaten himself. Plants was the supplier of many east coast restaurants. Wallis son Danny is now operating Plants Seafood, carrying on the tradition of selling only the best at a fair price.

Interesting funky place in downtown. Very welcoming as we entered. You order at the counter and find a seat. Self serve coffee. My husband got corn beef hash breakfast which was homemade and flavorful. I selected the pancake with real maple syrup. The pancake consistency reminded me a bit of a crêpe. Light and fluffy yet with a delicate chewy texture. Very nice taste and this relaxed atmosphere is great for breakfast.

This is a quaint little ice cream shop in maine. It has very good ice cream.
We went to this ice cream place two nights in a row. The first time the line was out the door but the wait was reasonable. There was 8 in our group.

I have been to real BBQ places from St. Louis to Nashville and Texas but Beale Street did not do it for me, just my opinion. During my visit to Beale Street, I had the brisket and chicken combo ($18.50). The brisket was fatty and paper thin (never saw it that thin before at any real BBQ's) and the chicken was a very small drumstick and very small thigh. Portion overall was very small and Beale Street should be ashamed of themselves for charging $18.50 for this combo. The mac & cheese I had was just ok. When waitress asked how I liked everything, I said it was ok and she moved on without asking any follow-up questions on why I felt that way. I am on a two-week trip up and down the coast of ME and MA and am not afraid to drop any amount of $ for an excellent meal but I neither will return to Beale Street at any time in the future nor would I recommend it to anyone.

This place offers several flavors of ice cream, all of which must be good. The rum raisin was my favorite. The staff was courteous albeit slow, and there were places to sit at tables and on benches. Some locals were complaining on my visit that "they changed the story" of the Witch but the ice cream was still top notch!

Family who live locally recommended Schutty's to us. We recently tried the seafood chowder, fried oyster roll, fried clams and onion rings. Everything was delicious...Fresh and lightly fried. Not at all greasy. We were surrounded by friendly locals. We plan to return and try more menu items. Service was unremarkable. Woman taking orders at the window appeared to be overwhelmed.
