Aces. We were up on our mini-moon and found this place on Trip Advisor. Glad we found it. Dave and Alona were fantastic hosts. It felt like we were staying at our friends' place. There was only one other couple there the first night - it was as if we had the place to ourselves. Breakfast both days was fantastic. We were in the Bridal Suite which boasts a jacuzzi bathtub. It should be noted that it is a jacuzzi for one . . . It's about a mile down the road from Sugarloaf. Not sure what the shuttle situation is here, but we had a car. It snowed our first night and through the next day. Dave was nice enough to dig our car out. Not sure when we'll be back, but we'll probably stay here again. Highly recommended.
We stayed here a few times (in 2010 and 2011) and absolutely loved it. So nice! Food is great, beds are comfortable, very clean and new. It is like staying at a really nice house. My only complaint is that the walls are really thin. The people who run it are super nice.
This is our first time at a B&B, it's absolutely amazing! Extremely clean, comfortable, & gorgeous! Alona & David are super nice and accommodating! Great hospitality! The breakfast is delicious, and they also have an on site massage therapist! We will definitely stay here again in the future and will be telling all of our friends!

This is an amazing little place just off the mountain at Sugarloaf. The good is great, wine list is perfected, and the service is impeccable. I highly recommend this place to anyone in the area or anyone coming to spend the weekend skiing. The food is affordable and a decent portions. The appetizers are great and I highly recommend the meatballs to start followed by any of the pasta or chicken dishes. The beer is reasonable and perfectly priced. Come in or call ahead. They are a busy little place.
Great little Italian Restaurant up near Sugarloaf Mountain. Excellent food and service. About 2 miles away from the resort, short drive or shuttle ride. We went on a week nite and very quiet. We heard weekends are very crowded. Entrees come with family style salad and pesto bread. The menu has a lot of great choices and daily specials. Highly recommend the meatballs for appetizers. For dessert we had Tiramisu and Canolis, both excellent. For such a small place and far from a city, very impressed with the many selections on the menu. Really enjoyed our dinner and would return again. They also have a location in Falmouth!
Hugs has fantastic food, probably the best in the Valley. You'd never know it driving by on 27-- it's a tiny hole in the wall place. The chicken limone is out of this world, cooked in a lemon butter sauce with mushrooms. It melts in your mouth. Yummy. I don't think it's open in the off season, ski season only, but I could be wrong.

The Rack

With limited options around Sugarloaf, and most closing fairly early, there is one place you can go to grab a semi-late dinner. The Rack's kitchen closes at 10 PM, but I'd advise coming earlier as they might turn you away if you come a few minutes before 10 PM. After 10 PM, it turns into a quasi nightclub with live band, cheap drinks and a good time. There is a $5 cover charge to enter as well. That was exactly what happened to us when we came at 9:55 PM on a Saturday night, which we decided to return the following night. Our party of 4 came on a Sunday night around 6 PM and were fortunate enough to be seated promptly near the bar area as there was a live band playing there. If you have larger parties, I'd advise coming around this time, as 7 PM seemed to be the time where a wait for to be seated in the dining area began. The decor is very rustic, with wood trimmings, giving you the impression that you are in a barn or countryside ambiance. There is also a basement area with arcade systems and a foosball table. Bathrooms are also located downstairs but be warned that they can get very dirty. The two men's urinals were filled with everyone's urine and would not flush. We heard good things about the wings, so to start we ordered Wings (5 for $7.99) with the Sweet Pow Pow Sauce, touted as a sweet and spicy sauce. We were told they were running out of wings and said only orders of 5 were available, so we ordered that just so that we can try it. But luckily that we did, because I was somewhat disappointed in the wings. They didn't have that crispy skin, erring on the ever so slightly slimy side. And the flavor were only on the skin of the chicken, which my guess was that it wasn't marinaded long enough. Subtlety sweet and spicy on the outside with a juicy inside, but I still only found them to be average run-of-the-mill wings that I wouldn't think twice about. For dinner, I ordered the Beef Brisket Sandwich ($9.95) made in the same Sweet Pow Pow BBQ Sauce. A average serving of brisket was served on the bun, along with sweet potato fries, 4 thin pickle slices, and a small container of slaw. The brisket was tender and moist, and the sweet and spicy flavors were a lot more pronounced, making for one tasty sandwich. It wasn't very filling, but it was just the right amount that I didn't find myself full. But of course I had to try other people's dishes, which I also tried the Pulled Pork Sandwich ($8.95) also made in the Sweet Pow Pow BBQ Sauce. It was just as tender and tasty as the Beef Brisket Sandwich, and I could just as well say that either are good choices with none edging over the other. I also tried The Rack's Ribs, their signature dish, slow roasted in-house with spiced rub. The meat pulled off cleanly from the bone, but it didn't have the moist and juicy texture that one should come to expect when eating ribs. It bordered on slightly dry. The spice rub was very tasty, but it didn't result in a very enjoyable rib. After we finished our meal, we headed to bar area so we could listen to the live band, which played country-like music. Everyone was having a good time, dancing and drinking. A few other random people came up to us in their jovial attitudes to say hello and give us a cheers. It's a great place to have a drink and listen to the music. And if you're not into country music, there is a large screen above the stage where a sports game is being aired. We also found the same drinks that we ordered at the dining room to be cheaper. Three drafts and a bottle of apple cider was only $15. Although the website says it closes at 12 AM, we were told they stay open until around 3 AM. The Rack definitely serves up some decent food that we all enjoyed. Add that to a live band and cheap drinks at the bar area, and one might have a darn good time. It's one place I actually look forward to returning to when looking for a place to eat at in the Sugarloaf ski area. If coming in the warmer months, there is also an outdoor area in the front of the restaurant that I imagine could be quite fun as well.
I have always had a really good time at night here with friends. They have excellent local beers on tap and there is usually some good entertainment on the weekends/holidays. They have an arcade in the basement too. I never ate here until a few weeks ago and I must say that I was very impressed. My prime rib was cooked to a perfect medium/medium rare and the horseradish dipping sauce was pretty killer. My potatoes were bangin' and had just the right amount of garlic and salt & pepper. ........... and my dinner roll was surprisingly soft and fresh. I will not be eating at The Widowmaker on my next trip up to Sugarloaf.
Okay soooo, everywhere I went during my visit to Maine the people have been incredibly nice and warm, then we go to the Rack. Meh, cool gimmicky place to go but I'll tell ya the people were almost out of place compared to the rest of the people we met, they were so rude. Even asking where the bathroom was became a joke, there were patrons close to us have a farting contest and one older bald man poorly dressed and quite homely looking was blocking the exit for my sisters as if forcing a bully moment. Anyway, doubt I'll go back when I'm up visiting my sister in Kingfield.

Worse service experience ever. Stopped to have two sandwiches for lunch with the intention to continue skiing after. We arrived around 2:40p and just left now at 4p without the sandwiches ever showing up. The waitress Lindsey never came back to apologize or refresh our drinks while we waited for more than 1hr. I had to get up and look for the hostess Denise who was the only one who was very apologetic. She checked on the food but didn't tell us when it would be ready. At that point the order had been in 39minutes as confirmed by the computer. 20 minutes later, no sandwiches or waitress to be see . I got up again to find the hostess, who again was very apologetic. She said she would go get the manager. Meanwhile we got up to leave and the waitress came over at that point. I told her that we didn't feel we should pay for the 2 beers ($9) we had since we just wasted our last chance to ski. She said it didn't matter and I asked to speak to the manager. The manager finally arrived and she said that "it happens". I asked "what happens? waiting 1hr for 2 sandwiches ?" And she said yes. She tried to excuse it with reggae weekend. She was less than apologetic and actually told me that it was ok for us to leave and with her hand showed us the door. I didn't have to pay the $9 for the two beers which would have added insult to injury of she had asked. I would say, avoid this place if you can. 42 North in the hotel served us right away.
Slow slow slow slow slow service. Mediocre food. The Bag is a much better choice if you want to actually eat in less than an hour
I've been a loyal Geppeto's customer for a long time. But ownership has changed, prices have gone up, and. I just ate at the Sushi Bar at Geppeto's and it was a significant falloff from what the sushi used to be. Dinner in the regular restaurant a month ago was okay, but the sushi restaurant is off my list now.
