Southern Maine- Follow Up Report

flam1ngo | Sep 7, 2006 01:37 AM

We just returned from Old Orchard Beach, Maine. We set out with Chowhound posts in hand and have thye following to report:

On the Marsh, Ogunquit: We went here on a Chowhound recommendation and were VERY disappointed. The service was good, but the food was decidedly medocre--- and expensive! The free range chicken was good,but everything else was merely OK. At these prices we expected much more. Lovely setting... some consolation.

MC, Perkin's Cove: Excellent, wonderful, probably the best of the trip. Excellent food, well prepared, excellent service, and a nice view. Expensive, but worth the price. The only complaint is that the dining room is a bit noisy. Highly recommended!

Maine Diner, Wells: An old favorite, still good! Good lobster roll, wonderful lobster pie, reasonable price. Good edible food, at a good price. There was a wait... Worth the wait- browse the gift shop, appropriately called "Remember the Maine".

Nunan's Lobster Hut, Cape Porpoise: We LOVE Nunan's! Plain, unadorned lobster, boiled with chips and a bun on the side, decent steamers too. Dependable year after year... Recommended! We ate there twice in a week.

Becky's, Portland: It was good. Not awesome, but good. Lovely pancakes, with real maple syrup (at additional cost). Parking was a nightmare, and there was a line.

Bob's Clam Hut, Kittery: Considering the location, surprisingly good. We were outlet shopping and had a nice lunch. Not worth going out of the way, but if you are shopping, worth stopping in.

Thanks to Chowhound for some good meals.

Happy Eating!
