The food here is genuine slow-smoked barbeque, and it's awesome. The super-tender, beef Brisket is my personal favorite, but the smoky pulled pork is a close second. They have several sauce varieties on the tables or available if you get take-out, and the prices are not too bad for the portion sizes that you get. One meal splits easily between two people, unless you are very hungry. The waitstaff are very sweet, with lots of local knowledge, and service is what you would expect in small-town Maine.
Now, the theme of the restaurant is just plain weird. It's a confederate vs. union/Civil War themed restaurant. Hence, the name Grant-Lee's Tavern. They used to have a confederate flag out front, which made people a little uncomfortable, myself included. I'll admit, I did not try it until they redecorated. The inside still has old photos from the Civil War, and looks like a log cabin. I think they were trying to go for the museum/historical look. It's a weird theme, and not to my taste, but the food sure is. My advice is to order the big sampler platter from take-out, bring it home to share, and enjoy it in your own dining room.
