Spending time on the southern Maine coast is something I have done for over 40 plus years. This being said like everyone else I am sometimes stuck in a rut so to speak when choosing a restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I too often visit the same places and order the same items from the menu(es).

Well, we just spent 5 days on the southern Maine Coast and went out of my comfort zone a bit. We encouraged the waitstaff to tell us what they thought we should order. So a shout out to Michelle G., Deb, Ryan, Danielle and Carol, Briana, Stephanie, and Jordan. We loved your delicious dining suggestions.

Here are a few highlights we encountered while dining local on the southern Maine Coast. We recommend that you read each review to get more details, view food photos, and discover Ten Great Southern Maine restaurants. Step out of your comfort zone and into some of New England’s amazing local restaurants – here in Southern Maine.
