We are vacationers in the area and were looking for something fun to do on New Year's Eve. As this is the slow time of year on the coast of Maine, it was no easy task, but we found a great deal at Trackside for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 flutes of champagne for $45. There was also a... More

We popped in for a quick late afternoon lunch. The restaurant was very neat and orderly, staff was extremely polite, and the bathrooms were very clean. We ordered two of the daily specials-which arrived quickly and everything was nicely presented and piping hot. Our bacon bleu cheese burger was cooked to perfection and the bacon and tomato grilled cheese was... More

We consider ourselves "wing specialists" and these were some of the best ever. A chili spice was awesome, and great place to enjoy football too!

What a delightful surprise to find a family owned restaurant with excellent, fresh, and well-prepared local dishes. My husband and I both had the smoked haddock corn chowder - prepared fresh - no sitting around mushy stuff. It was full of smoked fish, creamy potatoes, sweet corn, and bits of bacon to add to the smoky flavor with just enough... More

The Trackside has very good food, both classic items like burgers, and unexpected surprises like the gumbo that I had, which was the best I've ever had anywhere. Fresh salads, good service, too. If you're not from the area, you may miss it because it's not on Main St, but it's well worth the visit. Cool old train station.

We had a great meal at the Trackside Station in Rockland. Our juicy burgers were served on tasty fresh-made buns. The fresh cut fries were perfectly prepared. Other members of our group had pizza, a BLT, and fried sea scallops. The only complaint of the group was that the portion size of the scallops was a little skimpy. Two thumbs... More

We have been going to the Trackside for about a year now and we love it. Out of all the restaurants in town, we keep coming back here. Kelly, the owner is an exceptional host and makes sure everything is running smoothly. Also, the place is immaculate, super clean. We have come here for dinner, lunch, sports games, and just...

I'll start by saying that I've been here before years ago, but the food is completely different and you can tell everything is fresh and me and my friends were pleased with everything we ordered. I had one of the wraps and some house cut french fries, and my friends had some apps to share. The veggie plates are great... More
