HELP!!! First trip to Maine Oct 12-18: Portland to Bar Harbor

madonetw | Aug 14, 2014 02:08 PM

We are 60 yo couple on our first trip to Maine. Late arrival in Portland Sunday night with overnight in airport hotel. Pick up rental car and start the drive to Bar Harbor on Monday. We have two nights there in a rental with a kitchen. One reservation at the Reading Room (yes, no? ) on Tuesday night. Wed and Thurs night in Castine at the Pentagoet Inn. Should we eat there at the Inn? We want the full experience of lobster, lobster rolls, clams, etc. We enjoy good food but do not have to have expensive meals each day. We return to airport hotel in Portland on Friday night. Flight home on Saturday. Got to fit an LLBean stop into the trip sometime. I guess we are looking for that off the beaten track kind of lobster shack, etc . Would appreciate restaurant suggestions for this circuitous route. Thanks.
