My meal was of but nothing memorable. The dining room was very cold and that made it almost uncomfortable. The service was very slow and the restaurant wasn't busy.

Started out going to Finns but there was a show in town and they had 45 minute wait. Went to helens as second choice. Ordered halibut and it was the blandest fish ever! I don't think they evenput salt and pepper on it! My husband had lazy lobster and loved it so it's all in you personal preference waitress was very nice though. The place is outdated and in need of a refresher in decor and menu. Sorry..,

Really enjoyed the lobster dinner in a very modern and clean restaurant. Only wish it had been a little warmer so we could have sat outside, maybe purchase some large outdoor propane heater. The blueberry pie was a mouth watering ending to my dinner.

Cute restaurant along the way to Bar Harbor for a couple days. Stopped for lunch and had among other things chili which was a special for the day. Our meals were quite good, seated quickly and service was very fast.
Lots of varied items on the menu, all will find something to their liking.

We were referred to this restaurant by the clerk at our motel when asked where she eats and we were not disappointed. We had the scallops sautéed in butter and they were outstanding. Our server was friendly and checked back on us several times. They had some good looking pies that looked tempting. Their menu had a lot to choose from.
