Bell Buoy Restaurant

Family style setting with a variety of menu items to choose from. Seafood, chicken, beef and a three course meal special.

Recommended by our hosts at Atlantic Birches Inn and we're glad we took their suggestion. Began with a well-made Margarita. My husband loved the stuffed lobster and I thoroughly enjoyed my Mariners Stew. It's not often I get to order soups and stews due to having Celiac Disease because too many restaurants use flour. When our very pleasant waitress told me the chef uses cornstarch I was so happy. And the price was very reasonable. Would recommend anyone who enjoys seafood to pay this restaurant a visit!

The Shack

Dinner on the top deck of this busy restaurant. Servers were hustling, even though there was a wait for a table it was brief, about 15 minutes, which on a Saturday night isn't bad. We each had clam chowder, which was really good though a little pricey, & split a scallop & fried clam plate. Scallops were really good and plentiful, clams were okay, the breading wasn't sticking and there were not a lot of them. Good amount of fries & slaw. Prices overall were not bad and service was very good.

Landmark

Reviewed By Ron-Dianne

We were celebrating our anniversary and Landmark was the perfect place for dinner. With 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio our bill with tax was $86. We ordered Caesar salads as appetizers but would choose something else if we went again. I had the Mahi Mahi which was really delicious and my husband had Mussels Pesto with pasta. His plate was loaded with mussels and the taste was great. The portions were good and the atmosphere was really nice. This was more upscale than other restaurants in the area and probably more for adults. The pace was good so we didn't feel rushed. Make reservations so you won't have to wait. We would definitely go again.

Jumpin Jakes Seafood Cafe

We ate here our first night because it was right next to the resort we were staying at. The prices were the best we found while in town. I got a twin 1lb lobster dinner for $24.99 and the lobster was perfectly cooked and delicious. They had a fair selection on the kids menu too. Great food at a great price. I would definitely go back.

We arrived right before closing time yet we were greeted cheerfully and our newbie questions fully answered. We both ordered the beefy burger with a selection of toppings. This is the large one patty burger but there are smaller single and double patty options. My husband ordered a chocolate shake but there wasn’t enough chocolate ice cream to make a shake they’d be proud to serve. We sat at the picnic table in front of the stand and devoured our excellent burgers. The meat is ground daily and the fries are hand cut daily. We were offered free fries since they were just about to close but declined...probably should have taken them because they looked great. Halfway into our late lunch the lady who took our order came out to the picnic table with a chocolate shake in hand and said ‘I knew we had just enough chocolate ice cream...here’s your shake!’ Wow! That’s service! Next time I’ll get poutine. These folks are super kind and the food is great...and an excellent bargain.

Second time eating here while vacationing in OOB. The food is great and the portions are worth the price paid!The service can be a tad slow upon first sitting down but once they take your order the courses are served appropriately and efficiently!The views of the ocean views are beautiful! They have seating indoors and outdoors. Would highly recommend making a reservation. FYI....the upstairs menu is different then the downstairs menu.

Not that the food isn’t good, it is simply not worth the “fixed price” dinner menu for $58.I would recommend checking this place out with a trip to the bar and perhaps enjoying a small plate there.

We just got home from having dinner with cousins from out of state. We had a super super server Natasha. She made our evening so fun. My cousin’s husband is a jokester and loves to tease the servers. She ate it up and gave it back to peter. The food was extremely fresh and arrived promptly and all was as ordered! Kudos on the seafood pasta and it was served with my favorite pasta - angel hair! The baked haddock was flavorful and flakey. The salmon was fresh and not fishy. The seafood platter looked delicious. This restaurant is a well oiled machine and runs very efficiently. We didn’t feel rushed at all. The desserts were a nice ending. Since my spouse live locally, we will definitely be back. Thank you Natasha for a fun evening!

We traveled to Maine for our first time ever and got lucky that this restaurant was right across the way from our hotel and we couldn’t have been happier! Great service and our waiter was even more amazing! I would recommend the lobster claw 100% and if possible request Andrew, his service was stellar and he was an all around genuine person, plus if your traveling around for the first time he has great tips :)

Huot's Seafood Restaurant INC

Reviewed By intervale

Found Huot’s by accident when visiting Saco. Located right at the mouth of the Saco river on the northern side it is a slightly upmarket sea food shack, nicely , If plainly decorated.Plenty of parking, which is useful as it is popular, particularly with the 65+ group who form a high percentage of the clientele, probably because of the discounted prices for that age group.The menu although fairly standard for this type of restaurant provided plenty of choice and the seafood, which was excellent, is fresh and cooked to order in satisfyingly large portions. Service by a large group of young waitresses is friendly and efficient and prices are surprisingly low.Well worth a visit if in the area.
