The Gingerbread House Restaurant

Great breakfast atmosphere. Slow service but relaxing and scenic atmosphere. Also, the place to go in the evening for take out ice cream. Homemade gingerbread and brownies. Generous servings!
Tasty pancakes in a cute woodland setting. We had a gut-busting, tasty breakfast here recently. Each pancake was the size of a large dinner plate and is probably best ordered as a side to share between two or three people between bites of egg or sausage. Other reviewers have mentioned how pricey it is -- I thought it offered reasonable value given how huge the servings are., The $2 up-charge for real maple syrup is something we've seen in cheaper area diners but were surprised to see here. No complaints about the service, but it was early on a quiet mid-week morning and we were practically the only ones there.
My husband and I were vacationing at Lake Cupsuptic for our anniversary and were told that The Gingerbread House was a good place to eat. We made reservations for our anniversary. The staff was super friendly. I read other reviews that were from years past, maybe they have better staff now. We had an exceptional experience and meal. We started with a bottle of cabernet sauvignon that was reasonably priced. Our waitress was very helpful and made suggestions. We ordered the crab cakes to split as an appetizer. They were almost ALL lump crab hardly any filler. They were some of the best crab cakes I have ever had. My husband asked for a recommendation from the waitress and she suggested the lamb chops. They were juicy and delicious! The portions were well worth the money! I had the Lobster Mac n cheese. It was super! The lobster was piled on top, not baked into the mac n cheese. This made for very juicy lobster meat. All of the lobster meat was claws. For dessert, we had warm gingerbread with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious! A terrific anniversary dinner! Two thumbs up!!

I rarely give out five stars. For me four stars means highly recommended. Five stars means you'll remember the meal forever. Plus, I don't want to appear to be a shill. With that out of the way... We stopped here for breakfast only because our first choice was closed. The staff was among the friendliest I've ever encountered and eager to offer suggestions about activities in the area. The breakfast was also top notch. The home fries were perfectly seasoned, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and clearly made from scratch. The bacon was also crispy, as it should be. Those two items act as a barometer of a good breakfast. My father-in-law would have approved. We liked it so much that we came back for thanksgiving; a full turkey dinner with all the fixings and all of it like home. I've only had turkey this good once and that was the time I cooked mine upside-down. Look past the decor and you'll be rewarded.
This place is not horrible. The food was decent and everyone ate all of their food. It was pretty expensive for what we got. Pretty generic and straight from the box and then microwaved food. I had the shrimp quesadilla and it was literally a tortilla, cheese and shrimp. Nothing else. At least there is a playground next door to entertain the kids. I'm sure you could do worse. It's not like there are a lot of options in Oquossic.
The Four Seasons Cafe* is a locals-only type of place in the one-horse town of Oquossoc, Maine. If you're in a season that is not summer, this is one of only two or three restaurants in both Oquossoc and Rangeley that is open (and only open on the weekends at that). The restaurant lies on one of the snowmobile trails, and I think nearly the entire clientele is probably local snowmobilers. I came in 10 minutes before three locals, and sat at the bar. The server took the locals orders first. One of the local snowmobilers actually had to tell her to take my order. The interior decor is fraying, and the restaurant is kind of tilting on its foundation to the northeast. I did not go into the bathroom, but there is a bathroom sink and towel rail behind the bar, which makes me think that at one point they converted the bathroom into a bar. I think I would have changed out the sink, at least. Which brings us to the food and drink. I naturally ordered an appetizer that I thought would be hard to screw up, and it was OK. The beer was a 12oz draft, and it tasted like they needed to clean the lines. Both the 12 oz draft and appetizer cost around $12, which is outrageous. But, hey, if you're desperate for a drink in Oquossoc in an off-season (and it's ALWAYS off-season in Oquossoc), here you go. * Not affiliated with Four Seasons Resorts, its subsidiaries, employees or shareholders.
