Steak Frites.... awesome. Moscow Mule was prepared to perfection. Ambiance is very conducive to conversation and enjoyable dining. We sat at the bar for drinks and tapas and had a wonderful experience.

It's a seafood version of "from farm to table"... all fresh seafood-of-the-day with nothing but fresh ingredients from local growers/providers. The service is very professional yet friendly with a bistro-like atmosphere. It's a fun place to spend an evening with some genuine Maine dishes in...More
