We drove here in the dark from a hotel about 2 miles up the road. It was March, snowing, and the parking lot was full on a Sunday night. That told us something right there. The seafood specials were fresh - not something frozen and shipped in. The service was quick. The waitress pointed out the specials - which I think is the way to go - but even if you don't like it, one of our party tried the standbys and were happy. There are a lot of choices on the menu, and prices are affordable. You aren't paying for fancy ambiance. There's a fireplace inside - for some of that - yet the key is the food. The atmosphere is not intimate, but it is not noisy either. For food, they go for quality not quantity. You can do better at a fancy, expensive restaurant - yet for a small town in Maine - this was unexpected for very good food at an excellent price. Finally, the dessert was huge (quantity) - and if you get the blueberry pie - you know you're tasting a Maine specialty!
Great service, fantastic food, great time with family & friend's.
We've been to all three Angler's locations and this is the best! Food is excellent at all three but this is a bit classier. Service excellent too. I had yummy fried scallops and a delicious Hot fudge brownie sundae for dessert. Wife did the fish and chips and a friend had broiled scallops and Haddock. All great.
I have eaten at Fresh Ginger multiple times and they definitely have some of the best Asian food in the area. Breaded chicken dishes are breaded lightly, the sauces are delicious, flavorful, and contain tons of fresh vegetables. I recommend the Hunan Chicken if you like a little spice. Their lo mien and Thai dishes are also great, and the crab rangoon are awesome! The prices are very reasonable especially for portion size (large will easily feed two). We get take out mostly as restaurant decor could really use some updating. Otherwise, I give Fresh Ginger two thumbs up.
We eat here quite frequently as they are located just a few minutes from our house. We have never been disappointed in their food or service. Whenever we are in the mood for Chinese, this is usually our go to place. They have some of the best crab rangoon I've ever had and their lo mein never disappoints. I also love their sweet and sour chicken. If we go on a weekend, we will usually eat there, but during the week, we will often get take out and my husband will pick it up on his way home from work. The serving sizes are absolutely huge, so you get a lot for your money and you'll most likely have plenty of food leftover. We always do! The service is always fast and friendly and their prices are very reasonable. I just wish they would deliver.
I'm giving it two stars for the location, but really wanted to give it 1. Though the prices are decent, the food is terrible with the service being okay. My husband and I went in for lunch one day and though there were literally only two other tables our food took forever, our server wasn't prompt, and everything was so greasy and tasteless. The dumplings were huge, but skimpy on the filling. So doughy and greasy. I had a Pu Pu Platter for one, the fried shrimp was tiny with tons of breading, there was way too much fat on the boneless ribs, the beef teriyaki tasted like it had turned, and the hot mustard had zero heat behind it. Sadly we won't be back to Fresh Ginger, regardless of the convenient location.
Feel like some pizza in granny's kitchen? Then this is the place for you. With plaid curtains, photographs of babies and senior pictures of teenagers hanging on the walls, Pat's pizza has a home town feel and supports local teams. It's family friendly (no booze) with inexpensive pizza and personal pan sizes. Try their locally brewed root beer; it's tasty, even while it lacks a little bite.
I just got the Buffalo chicken pizza for take out, the flavor is good but wow, driest chicken ever!
The best pizza I have had in 35 years in the state of Maine.
