Down East Maine recs needed (Machias/Jonesport/Milbridge)

freshfigs | Aug 17, 2007 10:05 AM

Hi, I'm looking for any seafood, pie, or otherwise traditional Maine dining in Down East Maine. I'm particularly interested in getting recommendations for the farthest area up the coat, near Machias, Jonesport, and Milbridge, but really, I'd like to hear about anything in this region that's reasonably close to the coast. I'm not exactly sure where Mid-Maine ends and Down East begins, but I'm assuming it's more or less around Belfast, so any recs from that town going up the coast to the New Brunswick, Canada border would be great.

The one traditional Maine restaurant I keep hearing about is Helen's. I'll definitely be checking out the Machias location, especially for their pies.

Anything else in Down East that's chow-worthy? Lobster or crab shacks? Pies/desserts? Ramshackle/divey/take-out places are fine.

Thanks in advance.
