We ate dinner here last year as we stayed in Bangor, Maine en route to fish for salmon on the Marimachi in New Brunswick. I remembered it well enough to book dinner tonight en route again for more fishing. After a 9 hour drive we...More

We very much enjoyed the upper deck.Great view of the river and the Marina. Service was great and the food was exceptional. Prices may be a bit high but worth it. We will be going back soon.

We've been to McLaughlins at the Marina a few times. We enjoy how they prepare the food, but beyond that, we often wonder why we return. Their service is not always the best and their prices are, at least our opinion, too high.
