This restaurant is part of the popular Harraseeket Inn. Great buffet lunch Mon thru Sat and a good, deep menu for dinner. While there is a "fine dining" room elsewhere in the inn, the Broad Arrow Tavern is where families staying there eat and the food is really good family (and friends) fare. Try the chocolate cake with strawberries for a great dessert. The wait staff's experience always shows through in excellent service.

Food is good, especially desserts and lobster. A great place for lunch or supper while shopping at LLBean!

Again the lobster stew was really good; rich and creamy almost sweet. The lobster my wife ordered was the best she had on this trip (so far she had 5 lobster dinners; she's really into them).
I had halibut unfortunately for me it was disappointing; a bit overcooked and tasteless.
If you want excellent lobster this the place.

We really enjoy the Sunday Brunch and ask for Celeste to take care of us, which she can do easily. We repeat many months. Recently the price increased 25% which is a substantial change for us retired folks. However Chef Troy and his team are amazing and continue to be creative with new dishes & themes every week. The wine list has some good value finds. The baked items pies and cakes are wonderful; as is the whipped cream. Enjoy that crepe bar. Prime rib and lobsters cant be so bad can they, but all the extras throughout the buffet are what makes this one so special. The décor is traditional and comfortable as expected in this old Inn. Perhaps you could have a Brunch Club for us retired folks to benefit our wallets? We will return before Christmas of course. Thank you F&B Team for a job well done

Thank you so much for your loyal patronage over the years. We've tried very hard to keep food costs down, but as prices soar, it becomes increasingly difficult. We support local farmers and growers who promote organic and naturally raised and sustainably harvested foods, and Potts Harbor provides us with the freshest, best Maine lobster in all of New England. Our chefs work wonders with this local provender and their talents really shine at our Sunday Brunch. We're so glad you enjoy the brunch and hope you try our Broad Arrow Tavern luncheon buffet Monday through Saturday, another very popular way to sample the very best and freshest foods Maine has to offer. We look forward to your next visit!
