Can anyone direct me to good restaurants around Belfast, Me. Basic seafood/ steak restaurants preferred. All price ranges. Thanks.
__Fried etc seafood: Angler's Rte 1 Searsport (just north of Belfast) moderate
__Medi-Italian Delvino's "downtown" Befast, casual moderate
__Pub-like Darby's "downtown" Belfast, casual moderate
With two weeks on your hands, if you are willing to drive just a bit down the coast, search this board for Camden and Rockland suggestions. Many great restaurants there that I certainly consider "do not miss" caliber. Additionally, for excellent seafood, I was impressed on a recent visit to the Slipway in Thomaston, about an hour from Belfast.
Wow, with two weeks on your hands, you'll have to expand your search radius...and 20-30 miles brings on a whole new world of opportunities! This includes Rockland (26 miles), Rockport (20 miles), and Camden (18 miles). Here's what I would call the "high quality" restaurants in that area:
Home Kitchen Cafe (Rockland)
In Good Company (Rockland)
Suzuki Sushi (Rockland)
Cafe Miranda (Rockland)
Long Grain (Camden)
Francine Bistro (Camden)
Shepherd's Pie (Rockport)
Saltwater Farm (Rockport)
For nice drinks/upscale bar food, consider:
3 Crow (Rockland)
Fog Bar & Cafe (Rockland)
40 Paper (Camden)
And then one other place I should mention for BBQ...4 Points BBQ in Winterport (21 miles in the opposite direction). Hands down the best BBQ in Maine by far.
