Crosby’s Drive-In Is A Little-Known Maine Restaurant That’s In The Middle Of Nowhere, But Worth The Drive
One could argue Maine itself is in the middle of nowhere, being so far north, but if you really want to get off the beaten path on your way to Acadia National Park, take a detour to Bucksport on the Penobscot River estuary for Crosby’s Drive-In.
In 1938, Elton ‘Fat’ Crosby and his wife Margaret opened Crosby’s Drive-In, which has seen only three different owners during its existence. Today, it remains a popular snack stand in this historic community an hour west of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Crosby’s Drive-In is open seasonally, typically from mid-April to Labor Day weekend. During those months, the restaurant is open 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. seven days a week.
