A1 Diner

Reviewed By hus4154 - North Hills, Pennsylvania

We'd heard about the A-1 Diner from relatives in Maine who just happened to see it featured on some cooking show. And it is an old-time trolley-style diner: a long counter on one side, booths on the other. The waitress can fill you in on local history and events and is a local from birth. She fits right in. When you go, check out the specials board next to the neon clock. They change every day. Try the seafood platter or the bacon burger. Both were excellent. The lemon coconut meringue pie is HUGE. If you come to the diner long enough, you may have an entree named after you, like Carol's chocolate cake or the undertaker's wife's sandwich.

Sun Sun Restaurant

Reviewed By GraceIshak - Wiscasset, Maine

Out of all the Chinese food places we have tried this has been our go to place for years! Quality food at good prices.

Atmosphere: The restaurant itself could use some work. Booths can be uncomfortable.

Food: This is what we come here for. Whether we dine in or take out everything we order is satisfactory every time. My favorites are crab ragoons and beef and broccoli. Their portions are also great for the price you pay!

Service: Service seems to always be decent even though every time we go they have new employees.

Overall I recommend if your in the mood for Chinese give this place a try. I have not found any other restaurant that can compare in the area.

Fresh, handmade donuts. Excellent iced coffee. Friendly employees. Second time there in Gardiner. Glazed donut was soft and chewy and the sugar glaze was not too too sweet, but perfect. Had cut donuts, fresh every day. Cute little place right on the corner in Gardiner. Old fashioned inside. Donuts and coffee only. Cash only too. Will be back again. The iced coffee is the best around. Parking right in front on street. Prices are in line with quality.

The Liberal Cup

The Liberal Cup Public House & Brewery in Hallowell, ME, is our take on the traditional English pub. Our mission is to provide a gathering place for our local friends and seasonal visitors to enjoy good food and drink. Like the pubs that dot the English countryside, The Liberal Cup is an inviting and cozy spot to bring family and friends. And while the draughts will conjure that familiar flavor of jolly ol’ England (ales and bitters being our specialty), we’re happy to brag that the food will not. Our award-winning chef has taken classic pub fare and elevated it with fresh, local ingredients. His daily specials highlight Maine's seasonal offerings and on the weekends he likes to turn The Cup into a gastropub with his haute and nouvelle cuisine creations.

A friend and I came for lunch on a not busy, snowy Monday afternoon. Comfortable, easy atmosphere, good drinks, friendly and attentive service and THE BEST garlic parmesan chicken tenders ($9.00) that will ever cross your lips! It is served with a parmesan dressing, greens and celery sticks. Out of this world! We split a delicious Turkey Club ($9.75) with REAL Turkey and the added bonus of not only the bacon, tomato and lettuce, but avocado, too! Fries included. It was wonderful!

Mughal Palace

Reviewed By monikariney - Augusta, Maine

Delicious, real Indian food. I have eaten dinner here 3x in the last two weeks. Everything has been mouthwateringly yummy. Am consulting a thesaurus, because--spicy, piquant, subtle, savory...Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners will also be happy--lotta options.
They will spice entrees to your taste--mild, medium or hot. Haven't had to wait for my food. Restaurant is very clean. Yes, decor can use updating. But with food this good, that's not keeping me away.
Owner is from Bangladesh, and owned the very successful Hi Bombay in Portland.

Webber's Ice Cream

Reviewed By seniortraveler8383 - Navarre, Florida

You have a choice of homemade ice cream or soft-serve! Unique & regular flavors for either choice, outdoor tables, quick service & easy access off road! One could choose a different flavor every day during the summer & probably still have flavors untried when Fall arrives! We go here as often as we can while in Maine for the summer! Great family evening treat!

Pastaz Italian Cuisine

Reviewed By Jane M - Burlington, Massachusetts

Nice, small restaurant. There are only a dozen or so tables. It's very pleasant and prices are reasonable.
The lasagna is excellent. Order this if unsure of what to get.
Food is served on hot metal pans. Some like this. I don't as food takes quite awhile to cool down.
If you are on a restricted diet, this restaurant has limitations. There are no meat entrees. All entrees are pasta based. There are no vegetables except a small salad. It would be nice to have at least one non pasta entree.
I don't go often because of the limited menu.
