Stopped by for a sandwich to go and the service was great. The mix of sandwiches on the menu was wonderful. I decided on the "Camden Club" bread was out if this world so soft and fresh. Plenty of ingredients on the sandwich before I added any veggies that you want. Price was right and the manager today me that if the sandwich wasn't right to let him know and he would fix it!!!!! Much better than your "subway's", etc. will be back for sure to try the cookies and desserts they had on display!!!! Looking for a great sandwich in houlton Shamrock Cafe is a must.
I can't believe no one has written a review about this place! I stopped here on a business trip based on a recommendation from someone who works in the area. What a sweet place. I had a delicious cup of spiced pumpkin soup and a classic grilled cheese. Yum! The service was great and I enjoyed the environment - it was homey but still clean and professional. I stayed for a cup of coffee and left with a box of pumpkin whoopie pies from the bakery across the street which I brought home to my husband. They were so good and such a nice touch to offer local baked goods. I highly recommend stopping at this place if you are ever in the Houlton area!
I signed up for yelp just to write a review for this place. We are visiting family and happened to come across Shamrocks. We wanted to try a local restaurant and this really hit the spot. The owner was engaging and friendly and can he cook! I got the daily special, which was a quesadilla. My husband got the belfast, and it was delicious. He doesn't even like sauerkraut or thousand island dressing, and he devoured the sandwich. It took less than 10 minutes to get our food. I would recommend Shamrocks to anyone looking for a great meal at a fair price.

Very good Chinese/American food! Whilst I wolfed at the trough (I mean buffet) choices very fresh, abundant and very acceptable. My sweetie's choice, a combo plate, had a "spicy" designation. It was! Soft tears formed in her eyes, in a good way. Best chow in Houlton.
Great buffet, affordable combination plates, great service, and clean restaurant.
Quality Cantonese food, very large portions, and exceptional service. The owners were so friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Best Chinese I have had in such a long time. Large delicious portions, no grease, and prices very reasonable. Complete satisfaction would recommend to anyone.
Of all the cities in the USA and Europe that I've had Chinese in, Taste of China has the best egg rolls! I miss the old recipe for the pork fried rice, but everything else has maintained consistent quality for over 20 years. Some of the best Chinese food I have enjoyed over the years.
I could tell when I ordered that the teenage girl who took my order on the phone was not paying attention and had also never even read her own menu. She simply could not get the simplest of orders straight. Order was wrong when it came. The delivery guy came back and corrected it but food was cold by then. Also, the food was gross. I've never heard of terriyaki beef being red and having a rainbow effect on it like old ham. Obviously, the moral of the story is: DON'T ORDER CHINESE FOOD in HOULTON MAINE! I was stupid to even try. Don't forget the MSG headache!

Elm Tree Diner

146 Bangor St

Reviews:
No longer: The quality has slipped as it went through ownership changes. A few mornings ago, I ate there with relatives and we were all dissatisfied. The waitress wore no name badge, never gave us her name, got an order wrong, and was just unpleasant. The potatoes were grossly over salted. The whipped cream on the french toast was a melted mess. The regular toast is buttered in the back, and they add a lot. etc etc. Grammies is much better.
I come through Houlton once a year. Thanks to a tip from someone, I found the Elm Tree Diner, and can avoid the fast food that I thought was the only place to stop in Houlton! I love everything I've tried. I usually get mine to go as I'm driving to down east Maine. I love the clams and the homemade chips too!
Absolutely wonderful and that's just the service! The food is outstanding and the choices are many. Comfort food with a capital C. I will return again.

The coffee is the BEST but the donuts remind me of a duplicate first letter chain, which is less than inspiring for my donut loving body. The panini breakfast sandwich with maple is too overwhelming so get multigrain buns.

Went there on a Saturday night,really wasn't that busy,but our waitress who was very friendly, seemed a little frazzled. I had the bourbon glazed salmon which was good but warm at best. My wife had the balsamic scallops which were just okay,a small portion for the price,they also were warm at best. The wine list is good but pricey. A decent selection of beers,but when a wanted another one I had to get the waitresses' attention. Never did bring the the last one I ordered. I think the overall experience could have been better,maybe if the waitress had a bit of help. A server,a busboy to clear tables,something along those lines. I won't hurry to go back.
It was just a sandwich with chips. Slow service, limited menu and pricey. $8.95 for a Ruben with chips and a pickle wedge. I would expect different sides to be available for that price. New to the area and my first impression will not bring me back.
While shopping in houlton we drove by and decided to take a chance and stop in. Amazing food, not what I expected at all. Nice decor, warm and welcoming staff.. but the food, wow. The wife and I ordered the toasted plum tomato, italian bread, and goat cheese appetizer which we also requested feta with. Delicious. Next course was a small yet tasty yeast roll which was obviously made in-house. Service was a bit slow but when it comes to good food why rush? Want fast food then go to Mcdonalds! The slower meals allowed the wife and I time for conversation. The main course- I had the NY strip steak medium with garlic mashed potatos. Best steak I have ever eaten. Hands down better than any steak I have had at Michael Jordans in Mohegan Sun. The wife had the catch if the day. It was a bit on the crispy side but the flavor was very good she said. Id highly recommend if your looking for a higher end meal.

Same as any other Burger King I have been in with the exception that the free wifi didn't work. The spicy BLT was surprisingly good.

Pizza Hut

Reviews:
Welcome to Houlton - the historic start (or end?) of the highly travelled interstate I-95 highway which spans 1900mi/3000km from the Canadian border to Miami FL. I crossed into Maine on US Interstate I-95 from the 9mi/14km long New Brunswick Provincial Route 95 spur which connects I-95 to the Trans-Canada Highway. I was en route to Boston from Fredericton and needed to appease my hunger pangs. I decided to jump off the highway at Houlton and grab lunch at Pizza Hut. Let me preface by stating that I'm an unapologetic Hut fatty. Call my palate unrefined but I like pizza hut pizza. The breadsticks, the grease, the pasta whatever. When I go into a pizza hut, I know and accept what I'm getting into and am there voluntarily. Woah boy. Even with reduced standards, this location was frightening. On the bright side, the service was great and friendly and the food came out exactly as it was supposed to without issue. The dark dirty truth is that this is a 30+ year old neglected facility that is in desperate need of some TLC . The booths are so old that all the padding is flat. The upholstry on the backs of the booths is red however the edges are caked with black grime from years of use. The tables are sticky and look terrible. The laminate surface of the tables is worn from years of use. The carpet is scary. My first inclination was to turn around and walk out but i think the only other option in the area was burger king? I was hungry and was on a fairly long haul so I didn't have time to deviate from the highway too much. Avoid if you can, eat here only if you must. This location is sadly neglected and probably could only be righted with a flamethrower.
