11 Restaurants In Maine That Are Hard To Get In But Totally Worth It

Beyond the coastline and the beauty of our inland lakes and forests, Maine has made a name for itself in a completely different area – the culinary world.

Here are just a few of the harder to get into Maine restaurants that we think are totally worth the wait.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
