Bridgton, ME, any chowish places?
I will be in the Bridgton, ME area Sat (5 July). Any chowish places? I have done a search but didn't find many recent posts. Napels, Harrison, Waterford? They seem to be within 6-8 miles. Fryburg and Norway are possibilities
Too late for the OP, but may help someone in the future.
The Black Horse and Venezia's in Bridgton are both good. The Blackhorse is across form Rite Aid / next to Food City and has pretty good pub food. Venezia's is on 302 at the Western edge of town as you head towards Shawnee Peak. Decent Italian food in a casual setting.
If you are looking for lobster, Butcher's Seafood on 302 in Casco , Kens Cove on 302 in Bridgton and the Fisherman's Net also on 302 in Raymond are all decent. All 3 are basically no-frills take-out places, but the Fisherman's net has the most tables. Also, Bob's Seafood in Windham does ok fried seafood.
I have to laugh about this post. We spend a lot of time in this area as my kids are at summer camp on Sebago. The food is dismal to say the least. The Naples Lobster Pound is fun but just okay. It is "One Mile South of the Causeway". I love going there on the camp's parents' visiting weekend. That is the night all of my people just say no to treif food. Go and enjoy but forget looking for anything great.
Micah? My daughter has been at camp there for three years and as regular treif eaters we were sorely dissapointed in Naples Lobster Pound. The lobster was boiled, I needed a bucket to catch all the water that poured out when I cracked it open. Tasteless by any standard let alone compared to a lobster properly steamed or roasted. I did however love,and I mean love the fried whole belly clams. Whole bellies are rare in NYC and I gobbled them up in every place I could. I leave again this Saturday and the eating highlight of the trip will be pizza in New Haven.
Have heard that Venezia in Bridgton is a nice little Italian restuarant but haven't tried it myself. Based on experience, would have to agree that Bray's is really about it... the beer is good and the pub menu is standard fare and not awful. Try the sausage sampler. And for heaven's sake, stay far, far away from Rick's in Naples!
