      Actually, the "Camden is seasonal" is a bit of an out-dated cliche. Throughout the midcoast (from Port Clyde to Belfast) there are great dining options- mostly dinner rather than brunch- all within 5 to 30 minutes of downtown Camden (including the great choices in Mainecuisine's reply).

        dbookham-can you provide any more info about the restaurants in Camden and the surrounding areas that are open in the off-season for dinner? I know about Francine. Anything else both for fancy and not-so-fancy-at-all places? I love a good dive, too.

          A few thoughts, all open this time of year, although some may have limitied hours.
          Fine dining: Natalie's at the Camden Harbour Inn, Hartstone Inn
          Casual dining: Camden Harbour Inn lounge, Brevetto, Paolina's Way (organic pizza and more).
          Lunch, both order at the counter places: Camden Deli (great views) and Boynton-McKay
          Be sure to check out Farmers Fare, Route 90 just west of Route 1 intersection, too. Very casual, order-at-the-counter cafe, but fabulous.
