late season dining in ME

feelinpeckish | Nov 5, 2004 10:17 AM

The Maine Diner for breakfast is just great - and that doesn't begin to scratch their surface. Lunch and dinner though not tried this trip (to be rectified soon) gives promise of more good times. If I'd known more about their rep I'd have ordered (ie specified) smaller portions but... It is great. A triple A reference brought us to Grey Gull on the water in Wells. An older weathered building offering year round dining (with a short closing period though) sits right on the water so if that is a plus then enjoy. My experience however was less than exciting. The martini was about to become half and half vermoth but a constant stare and a shout preserved me. The appetizer was a lobster bisque and was excellent. Too bad the rest was sub par. The coquille St Jacque was topped with mushrooms and a thin sauce accompanied by a rice pilaf and verrry crunchy brocolli. The pilaf and the sauce had no flavor and though the waiter was "sorry" I was not happy, oh well. My wife's pecan crusted haddock seemed to lack the "crust" and I, who eat anything, when offered a bite found it lacking as well. We had intended to try Mabel's in Kennebunkport but they had closed for the season as had an old stand by Arundel's Wharf. Maybe I should have stuck to known locations in Ogunquit this late in the season.
