What is the most famous restaurant in Maine?
Maine's dining scene may not be as world-renowned as some, but the state's most iconic food sure is! That said, Maine offers far more to the culinary world than just lobster, and many of its restaurants have earned major accolades for their farm-to-table freshness, wildly creative dishes, and legendary specialties. Here are just a few of Maine's most famous popular restaurants:

Quirky, themed, and uber-creative restaurants aren't out of the norm in the Pine Tree State. Check out Grace in Portland for some heavenly dishes served up in a beautifully renovated church. Or, for a modern take on the iconic digs of the 50s, check out Blast From the Past Too Diner in Scarborough - one of a few retro restaurants around the state.
