We stopped at the New Friendly Restaurant to meet a friend and have lunch on a trip from the Maritimes back to our home in western Maine. It was a great place to stop. The seafood was as fresh as it could be, and the...More

I spent a week in Eastport recently, and the New Friendly was recommended. This is an arlea fav for wonderful old-fashioned "Diner" food. They make their own desserts, and the entrees are just like Mom used to make - maybe better! :-) The lobster stew...More

Stopped here on our way to Milbranch. Food was hot and very good. Hubby had the BLT and it was quite thick with lots of filling. I had the burger with fries and onion rings and it was very good. Prices are very reasonable.

Fried haddock and onion rings were just mouthwatering. Served super hot! Price was very reasonable, service was very good. Closed at 8 on a Friday evening so that was surprising for summer, and there's no where else close by. Good variety on the menu, locals...More

We love fish and chips and try to sample wherever we go. However, this is the Gold Standard of fried haddock that we have ever found!! Also, the fried scallops are great as well!! All come with fries or mash and great Maine coleslaw. A...More
