Wonderful facility for casual dining. Chicken Marsala is to die for. Have full diner menu plus pub food. Prices very reasonable. Brian & Jessica Nichols are good hosts. One of the finer restaurants in western Maine.

We have eaten at Brian's several times and never disappointed. Had the salmon and it was very good. The garlic mashed potatoes were very good, and the vegetables were not overdone or smothered in butter. Would definitely recommend.

I've eaten here a few times and I have not been disappointed. The atmosphere has a nice quaint down-home feel. I recently went for lunch, and the lunch menu does not overwhelm you with choices, but they offer an excellent variety along with two or...More
