We will be staying in Eastport, ME and had planned a day trip to Helen's for fish chowder and blueberry pie. With this sad news:

      Thank you! Any other not to-be-missed places within an hour's drive or so?

        How about Blue Bird Restaurant in Machias ?

        It was perfect for two fat lobster rolls, steamers and mussels to go...and at $3.00 a pound for the last two, we were in heaven. Thank you!!!

          Sorry, last reply referred to Quaddy Head for the lobster rolls and the shellfish to go. We have been there daily!
