We found that the one of the best dining experiences was at the Water Works restaurant in Rockland Maine. One side is a pub and the other side is a dining room. They are open for lunch and dinner. The pub serves one of the best bacon cheeseburgers that I have had. The dining room has a wonderful grilled salmon. They have a large interesting waterfall indoors all made of copper and brass that covers half of one of the walls.

We found that the one of the best dining experiences was at the Waterfront restaurant in Camden Maine. Anything that is seafood is prepared perfectly. They are open for lunch and dinner. Only the locals know about the $1.75 large Palbst Blue Ribbon draft beer. The location is on the Camden Harbor with a spectacular view of the harbor.
