We came here after seeing the great reviews. It was a little drive, very nice atmosphere and great presentation on everything. I ordered the baked stuffed haddock which was a small portion the should offer it in two sizes, there were more potatoes on the playe. Haddock stuffing was good. Also ordered nachos they were delicious.

Service was perfect! Nice, friendly staff and service with a real smile. Food was delicious. This place was totally unexpected, we truly were just driving down dirt roads and ran across this gem! In fact we eat there twice in one day.

This was our first Thanksgiving dinner out, not home cooked. We saw an ad in the local paper about a dinner here and gave it a shot. They had an opening, so we went a little early to take in the views of the mountains from the lake shore. Though cloudy, it was still awesome. The restaurant wasn't huge, but... More

This was a pleasant surprise after what we found in Millenocket, which is a hiking town. Just came for dinner, but they offer a lot more. The drive there was weird, all dirt paths and barely lit. Looks like a scary movie until suddenly this gorgeous cabin appears around the corner.

Good food, good service. We were two families of four and they had plenty of room for us with great beer, good drinks and good pub fare.

Not a lot of upscale dining in Millinocket so this was a wonderful surprise. The only thing that surpassed the food was the view of Katahdin and the sunset. Our server and the woman working at the gift counter were both extremely friendly and we enjoyed talking to them. The menu had some different options and our food was delicious.

My wife and I stopped here after a drive on the Golden Road. The food was good and the service was excellent. It is a great location and is worth a visit.

I came here for lunch and had the fish and chips. Food was amazing! It's in a great location, and the service was great! Food came pretty quickly after we ordered it, even for a group of six people. I'd certainly come here again.

The restaurant was recommended for us to go to for our anniversary dinner, and considering the very way out remote location, it is very good. We dressed up for the occasion, but you don't really need to as they know their neighborhood. I don't know if the place had a second floor which would have given the touted view a... More
