You’ll Love This Restaurant Hiding In The Heart Of A Maine Fishing Village

Cozied up and hidden away in Maine’s Midcoast is the lovely town of Castine. Perhaps best known as the home of the Maine Maritime Academy, it’s also a lovely place to spend a few days. Especially if you’re looking for a small Maine town with that quintessential Midcoast vibe. While there is plenty to do and see (we’re planning a short guide for a future article!) we’ve heard especially wonderful things about this small restaurant located directly next to the town docks.
