Been eating here for 30 years... sad news is that Fisherman's Friend is awful, having moved into a hospital-like space on the harbor. Good if kyou need to feed 150 people at once, otherwise, enjoy the view and avoid all but the haddock sandwich.

Happily, there is FINE food at low prices at Mikey G's, on Route 15 halfway between the towns of Deer Isle and Stonington. Open til 10pm, with WIFI, too. Amazing, classic French sauces for scallops, shrimp scampi to die for, and bread pudding that is more of a blend of apple cobbler and heaven. In fact, the menu is a summer place menu (usual takeout too) but the chef, father of the owner, is allowed to wander into gourmet space. WOrth repeat visits.

One complaint of recent visitors for a week was that all the food seems the same at the few restaurants. Not at Mikey G's!
