Youngtown Inn and Restaurant

If you are looking for a more personalized, unique, boutique style experience, simplicity where “guests feel incredibly connected with our destination and the local way of life”. Then look no further. The Youngtown Inn Restaurant offers elegant dining in gracious surroundings. Chef/owner Manuel Mercier draws upon his French heritage and European training to create an array of traditionally prepared dishes. Your hosts are extremely proud and grateful to have been reviewed and featured in local as well as national publications. A seasonally-changing dinner menu is supplemented with daily special offerings which take advantage of the freshest available ingredients. Lobster ravioli, rack of lamb and creme brulee have been the theme for many culinary writers. Along with delicious cuisine, the Inn offers a full bar and extensive wine list including "by-the-glass" selections.

It's wonderful to be at the Youngtown Inn. It's a handsome building, with comfortable rooms -- but the two owners make it truly special. MaryAnn runs the front of the house -- attending to every detail with passion and meticulous attention. Manuel is a classically trained French chef, and the restaurant shows off his talents -- not just for dinner, but also for the inn's first-class breakfasts.
This place has the warmth of a bed and breakfast, with the sophistication of a small inn. It's beautifully located -- convenient to Camden, but out in the countryside, near a spectacular lake.
This is a wonderful place - from start to finish.

Zoot Coffee

Reviewed By Nellie F - Cape Elizabeth, Maine

The menu on the board has no prices. There is a reason. Two iced cafe lattes cost us $14. I wouldn't pay this in Midtown Manhattan let alone a remote seaside community in Maine. Worse, THEY SERVE IT IN PAPER CUPS which forces you to drink it quickly or else the cup gets wet and the paper pulp gets INTO the coffee. They say they do it to 'save the environment'. Tell that to the trees they cut down. Iced coffee should NOT be served in paper cups. This place is for trust-fund brats. Their attitude showed their disdain for a customer's hard earned money.

This is my second visit to Fresh....a truly wonderful restaurant...located in the beautiful Seacoast village of Camden. It has a very welcoming atmosphere and reminds us of a place one would encounter while ambling through the European countryside. Reservations are a must...even off season...it is busy. The food is wonderful and everything is indeed "fresh". On our 1st visit, we enjoyed melt in your mouth Atlantic Halibut....& on our most recent visit we could not resist....the tender & very tasty lamb tenderloin. The Chef/Owner has a deft artistic touch & it is obvious he knows what he is doing. The sauces here are light and delightfully awaken your taste buds. The polenta pomme frites are amazing. Very creative! This restaurant is a keeper and we predict the Chef will continue to delight diners repeatedly. Service is very good and accommodating. Wine list has a good selection. Of interesting note, there is both a bar & an open kitchen concept. Trust us...the Chef keeps a watchful eye on not only the kitchen, but the dining area too. The charming & gracious Hostess is a co-owner and she maintains a well run dining room. If you are reading this review.....you can't ignore our enthusiasm for FRESH.

Lobster roll was okay: had a similar tasting roll from Panera Bread for cheaper. For $20 you can a small lobster roll, excellent french fries and excellent cole slaw. Outdoor seating available. Very friendly service. Very popular place: take your order at the window and wait for your food. The lobster was good: just not the best.

Delightful little antique shop by US1 with a little take out window in back. Margret's makes an excellent lobster roll for only $16 and an even better "Lazy lobster" with all the meat of a lobster in a dish with drawn better on the side for $22. Sweet fresh tasting lobster meat, Yummy! She also serves hot dogs and sweet or hot Italian sausage. Sweet lady and her husband will take your order, cook and deliver you meal to one of the many picnic tables out side and they has a nice collection of antiques as well. Always a delight to stop here going up or down the coast. Such a nice friendly couple.

The Red Barn Baking Co.

Reviewed By Linda Z

After selling all morning at the Third Saturday Lincolnville Flea Market, I decided to checkout the Red Barn Bakery on coastal Rte 1 between Lville Beach and Camden. After getting a great cup of Green Tree Harbor Dog coffee, I was lucky enough to get their last loaf of Brioche Raisin bread and the best oatmeal raisin cookie evah! I am an oatmeal raisin cookie connoisseur and thought my own recipe was best...nope, mine is now in second place to the Red Barn's. I made Pan Perdue (French toast) later in the week with the Brioche raisin bread. It was light and eggy and fabulous.

A week later I went to their second location for a delicious cup of Green Tree dark roast and a croissant. The pastry was buttery and perfectly crispy on the outside, exploding in a requisite shower of crumbs with the first bite and flaky layers of deliciousness inside. I also bought a loaf of their whole wheat bread (that's what a sample tasting encourages) a sticky bun for best husband and a morning glory muffin to share at afternoon tea.

So far Red Barn Bakery is my new favorite coffee and something wonderful stop in the Mid Coast!

Chez Michel Restaurant

Reviewed By Joie M - Lake Worth, Florida

We were planning to eat at a restaurant that was located on the water, so we could eat outside or at least look at the water while we dined. We of course wanted lobster, but I had a hankering for a steak too. The restaurant we were going to go to didn't serve steak, so we went to Chez Michel to eat because their menu had steak as well as lobster. Chez Michel is on the water (when the tide is in) but that night the tide was out and the water that runs down a river under the bridge that passes around Chez Michel, was out to sea, instead of flowing next to the restaurant. Upon entering, it looks like any little New England restaurant. Don't be fooled by its diner-esque decor, this restaurant is one for the palate! Our sweet, wonderful, well spoken, and knowledgeable server was named Allie. She was attentive, and our order was brought to us very swiftly, even down to the last moment add ons, that some servers normally forget, while she maintained control of her whole station. We never lacked anything. She was absolutely charming. We had lobster bisque with large pieces of lobster, in a creamy soup base, but cram packed with lobster, did I mention it overflowed with lobster? SO DELECTABLE! We also had the seafood chowder which was teeming with scallops, haddock, shrimp and clams- truly sensational it is a sweet and glorious chowdah like your grandma would have made. Oysters on the half shell, and shrimp cocktail, you can't believe how sweet the oysters were... Then we had Coquille St. Jacques (scallops and crabmeat in a Swiss cheese cream sauce) succulent and savory, also filet mignon which was ordered medium rare, and came medium rare, and it honestly melted in my mouth, it was an excellent cut, I don't know if it was prime, but it tasted and cut as if it was, I had a lobster tail which was amazing, the grilled swordfish, which that too, was moist and delicious and grilled to perfection. We also had lazy mans lobster, unshelled and awaiting your mouth! They have a full bar, and great happy hour as well... but Then the DESSERT... home made by The hostess/owner Lillian... I can't even. I don't normally delve into the dessert section like this but... I gotta tell you, I had to. We had peppermint stick chocolate crusted ice cream pie... Damn, I mean damn! That was out of this world! We had the crispest crunchiest caramelized surface on the creamiest creme brûlée. Also the best I'm not lying, the Best bread pudding, sweet, filled with spices, and bam -bourbon - it'll grow some hair on your chest! Go to this place, you will be talking about it for a long time to come!

Mount Battie Take Out

Reviewed By ross5100 - florida

I stopped here for lunch because I didn't want to deal with the parking in Camden. Service at the counter was friendly and fast. The food was delicious. The onion rings were great. Shains of Maine ice cream is an added incentive to come here. Eating outdoors at the picnic tables is pleasant.
