Took my mother here for dinner the other night. The restaurant itself is a bit tight but that was to be expected. Our waitress read off the special board for us and then went into full detail on the plate itself, sounding as if she...More

I was born and raised in Georgia and approve of the grits and fried green tomatoes. Kinda showed up as a goof just to see how Maine did "our" food. Job well done.

Parking is a challenge. There is no lot for the restaurant. Depending on what time I day we go for dinner, we often have found a spot out front, or may park on a side street. The restaurant is worth it, so we would even park... More

The menu at Hot Suppa is all made from scratch from quality ingredients; local goods are used whenever possible. Our renowned breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week, so you can get that corned beef hash fix whenever you’re jonesing. Dinner is available five nights a week, featuring our favorite dishes, like fried chicken & a waffle, falafel salad, and Maine oysters on the half shell. We offer a full bar service if you care to relax into the evening with a Porch Swing cocktail, or recover in the morning with a spicy Bloody Mary or cold draft beer.
