Inexpensive (but good!) choices in Camden/Rockport area

My husband and I will be staying in Camden later this week. After looking over these boards, I've made reservations at Primo and Long Grain. We're also planning to check out Paolina's Way. However, we need a few more suggestions for good places to eat.

We're looking for fairly inexpensive (i.e. less than Primo) places that have basic but GOOD food. Any place that uses local produce is a major plus. Any thoughts?


Paolina's Way

  1. Shephards Pie in Rockport, Slipway in Thomaston

    1. 2nd Shepherd's's the same chef as Francine Bistro in Camden, but more casual feel / fare and cheaper. Lily Bistro in Rockland is a good value...lunch especially. In Good Company in Rockland has alot of great little plates and quite a few wines by the glass. 40 Paper in Camden has a nice happy hour between 4-6 with half price food and cheap drinks. The Edge in Lincolnville also has happy hour between 4-6...though they have a new chef this year so I'm not sure what the exact specials are. It used to be $2 draft beers and $4 glasses of wine...and really cheap bar food.
