10 Truly Incredible Restaurants In Maine You Can Only Visit In The Summer

If you’ve been in Maine a long time, you know that we have some pretty specific seasons. As a warm-weather lover I might be biased, but I think spring and summer just might be the best. (Note to Maine’s mother nature: I can do without mud season). But, with warmer months in Maine comes the inevitable tourists and visitors. While many complain and say that they clog up our restaurants and make traffic unbearable, we have a different take on it.

Without these yearly summer visitors, these seasonal restaurants might NEVER be open. So, we’ll take the good with the bad. And while we’re at it, we’ll be heading straight for these spots that are only open in the season. Get there while you can or risk having to wait an entire year!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
