Maine middle of no where dining

need help folks. i'll be spending a week on what is almost an island in Machiasport Maine in mid-July. i've never been to Maine, much less to this seemingly remote area. i'll take any suggestions and recommendations in the Down East/Acadia region, with emphasis on where to get the best Maine seafood and a good beer. i would also welcome thoughts on stuff to maybe check out on the way back to Boston on Rt 1.

  1. this place has some good reviews...i've never been.

    1. still looking for anything between Bar Harbor and Machias. SPECIFICALLY unpretentious places. i don't want to dress up and i don't want my food served with a side of derision.

          For some of the best and most reasonably priced lobster rolls, Tracy's in Sullivan. It's a roadside stand, so definitely not pretentious. If you want alcohol, BYOB.
