Tan Turtle, Northeast Harbor, ME

We saw some hound references to "extensive menu," but we didn't see any comments about the place itself, so we decided to try it. It was very good. The menu is very extensive, and the waitress told us that they actually have everything that is on the menu. It is a bar/pub type of place. Many seafood selections plus burgers, sandwiches, salads, etc. The salads looked extremely good, but we had salads earlier in the day, so we opted for pub type stuff. Sue had fried haddock with cole slaw & hush puppies. Paul had a half pound cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and bacon. Both came with "turtle chips," which were the weakest offering. We'd rather have commercially made kettle chips than the turtle chips, but we aren't big on chips anyway. We had Turtle ale which was also very good. The napkins are also worthy of comment: they are probably the best, most cloth like, paper napkins wee have seen in a long time. Good sturdy napkins are a real plus when eating finger food. We noticed that the napkins came from Sysco which we know causes red flags to go up with many hounds, but the food was really good, the service was good (although "working" was mentioned). They say their seafood is not frozen. We believe them. Prices seemed reasonable considering the area. We'll go back.
