We'll be stopping in Brunswick on our way up the Maine coast. Looking for a good place to eat lobster. Willing to travel down to Harpswell or nearby. Thanks!

      Hi Mainegal,
      I haven't been to Jack Baker's new place, The Bailey Island Grill, yet (used to be Estes 2 or 3) have you? They have a website but it's still under construction. Also, could you tell me the name of the place you were recommending for lunch in Georgetown, somewhere near Five Islands, that the hall monitors wiped away? TIA

        Hadn't heard about Jack's new place. I'll have to check that out.

        I think I mentioneed two places in Georgetown. Five Islands Farm, which has an excellent selection of local cheeses, along with breads, meats, wines and other gourmet-ish goodies that will round out a meal at nearby Five Islands Lobster. Also MainsSweets for really fab chocolates, incuding authentic needhams, and cookies, brownies, fudge, etc. Next to MainsSweets is a little hole-in-the-wall sandwich place that had a goodly amount of Maine pickup trucks and delivery vans in front of it (always a good sign), but I can't remember the name.

            That may be the web site, but the company name is MainSweets, a play on the name of owner Patty Mains. I have her biz card right in front of me.

              I think it was the Five Island farm that caught my eye but thanks for the rest off it :-))
