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. The state has become something of a foodie’s paradise, with new restaurants opening up from Portland to Rockland and just about every place north, south and west. Some spots are only open for a few hours a day and others have a limited menu and inventory. This can mean longer wait times, but we think many are worth that wait. Here are just a few of the harder to get into Maine restaurants that we think are totally worth the wait.

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/
