My Husband and I are driving from Boston to Prospect Harbor( 40 minutes from Bar Harbor) and staying at a gorgeous oceanside inn next week. We wanted to stop at a lobster shack on the way up and partake in a quintessential New England meal. We are open to other suggestions as well- we are foodies and love all food but plan to make the most of the seadfood experience in Maine.
We will also be staying in Camden for a few days and taking a workshop at the Salt Water Farms for 3 days. Any recommendations for good dining joints near or around Camden? On the way back we are taking Route 1 back to Boston since it's the middle of the week and there will be less traffic; we have heard that it is a pretty scenic route. Is there any towns that one would specially recommend for both it's beauty and great seafood? We already plan on stopping by Red's in Wiscasset- it's such an institution that we just need to visit to see if it lives up to all the hype!
