Best Legal Seafood Location

Just about any Burlington restaurant is "the worst."

The Good Table-Cape Elizabeth, ME

TGT has been very, very uneven lately, and its recent best has been really mediocre. Not sure why but I'd guess there's been some major turnover of kitchen staff, all for the worst too..

Spritz

I think it's clear they meant to fill it with the 1.5 oz called for in the recipe, eh?

Maine lobster

If you're in the Portland area, The Good Table in Cape Elizabeth is a moderate priced and very, very comfortable place that serves great seafood as well as many other things. Lobster is always on the menu and was probably caught the same day it's served to you.

The Main Maine goal HELP!

I agree. Bob's Clam Hut is trying to live off the reputation made many years ago by prior managgement. Nowadays it is over-priced, frequently very disappointing, and - as said above - too often nauseating.

Best Steak Portland area...

Twenty Milk Street at the Regency Hotel has the only prime steaks in the Portland area and was excellent on both occasions we were there. On the expensive side but overall worth it.

Bar Harbor Winter Dining?

OK, it's been 3 days now, and COA has not responded at all to my inquiry. I find that surprising and disappointing, but perhaps it just indicates a lack of interest by them on outside visitors eating there.

Bar Harbor Winter Dining?

I sent an inquiry yesterday to COA to learn more about hours, etc. If/when they respond, I'll post that additional info here.

Bar Harbor Winter Dining?

Does either of you know what the breakfast hours are at COA's Take a Break? Sometimes we'll sleep in a bit when on a leisure trip. I sure wish they had some info on their web site!

Bar Harbor Winter Dining?

I believe Jordan's is closed for February and March. Too bad because I really enjoy their breakfasts during my Spring visits to Bar Harbor!

Bar Harbor Winter Dining?

I checked the college's web site and could find nothing about their dining room being open to the public. Are you sure about that? For breakfast and dinner?

Bar Harbor Winter Dining?

We're thinking of exploring Bar Harbor and whatever parts of Acadia are open in February. Can anyone suggest some Bar Harbor restaurants that are open for breakfast and dinner in February?

Inexpensive and fantastic seafood along the New England coast?

Tall Barney's is most definitely not a tourist trap. It is far off the beaten tourist paths. The clientele is still primarily locals, even though some locals object to the higher prices. The prices are still far from high, but anytime prices have to be raised some people will naturally object. However, it could not have continued as a going business unless the new owner had increased the prices moderately. Still an excellent value.

Some locals do feel that way. However, the food is at least as good as before and the prices, although higher, are still pretty modest if you're "from away" - or even just from outside Washington County.

Tall Barney's in Jonesport is super cool. In Machias, Bluebird Ranch is probably a better bet than Helen's - but neither can compare to Tall Barney's for real downeast character. In Cape Elizabeth, The Good Table is always very good. In Scarborough, Chowderheads always has superb fried seafood.

what's wrong with my popovers?

Is the butter here only for greasing the tin or also for mixing in the recipe?
