Maine Restaurants

One of my favorite things to do on an open weekend is taking a trip in-state to a new establishment to eat. My wife and I will drive hours based on a review, article, tip, social media post, you get the point.

It's fun, adventurous, and always satisfies the pallet.

While traveling Maine, we have found amazing diners, great pubs, outstanding sandwich shops, delicious pizza parlors, and perfectly brewed coffee. The Pine Tree State is not lacking for great places to enjoy a fine meal.

Maine's Restaurant Scene

We spend massive amounts of time discussing and dissecting every little aspect about the Maine restaurant scene. Whether it's Portland, the surrounding area, Bar Harbor, the Midcoast, Downeast, the Western Foothills, or the Southern Coast, this state is an absolute gold mine.

With so many amazing spots to hit, it's made many of them destinations for Mainers to try and visit.

Now, thanks to our stations' social media, we can put some names to those establishments.

Below is a list of many of those restaurants that were suggested to us. They vary in size, concept, and location. Some have opened recently, while others have been community staples for years. However, they are all true Maine originals.

You can see the entire list below. Hope you're hungry. I am.
