Anna’s Water’s Edge Restaurant

The lobster roll quest continues at Anna's. It was a solid B+ for the roll itself. I knocked off points for size, lettuce, unbuttered roll (just dry toasted?) and meat sweetness, or lack thereof. . Otherwise good chunks and decent mayo to lobster ratio. Anna's is a perfectly fair value with a lobster roll at $12.95 and crab roll at $11.95- the crab roll is a little steep. (mid Summer '08) The place is off the beaten path just north of Sebago Estates. It is a pretty little spot with picnic tables at the edge of a small working harbor. There is dining within for bug free dinnners with wait staff. They have a solid beer list and more sophisticated fare for dinner including scallops broiled with a "splash of white wine." thewatersedgerestaurant.… Despite other reviews, my burger was tasty, but not world class. When departing, take a left instead of a right (don't head back to Sebasco Resort) until you get to the dead end sign, then go right. After a quarter mile you will be confronted with an ominous sign about road closures and then dirt. Take the dirt road and whenever faced with a fork, stay to the left. This will take you back to New Meadows Road along the water and you will pass The Basin- a cool liitle cove with nobody around. If you are a kayaker, this is a great place to put in.
My hands-down favorite restaurant in Maine! I've been coming here for years and never been disappointed. Waters Edge is casual, non-pretentious, and all about the food. It has a log-cabin like interior is decorated with lobster traps, buoys, and other fishing accoutrements. The lobster stew and lobster roll are absolutely to die for. Save room for dessert too, because the homemade pies are just as good. Aside from the fantastic food, you'll be treated to a scenic view of the rocky shore.
A very nice sea food place right on the water. More upscale than say, a lobster pound, but not fancy. The clam chowder is good and the crab dip was outstanding, the wine list disappointing, and skip the hamburger ( I didn't, trust me). Not as touristy as many places, in fact it's pretty isolated. Reasonably priced, and worth the trip.

Spinney’s Restaurant

Reviews:
I read all the mixed reviews and we decided to eat here anyway. What were you all expecting? The food was good, the prices were reasonable AND the nearly 360 degree views just made everything better. The half size seafood platter was still enormous - for $10! The sights and sounds from other tables all seemed positive as well, plus they were all very friendly in there. If you are in the neighborhood for the fort and beach - come here! It was great!
A day at Popham Beach wouldn't be complete without a bunch of food from Spinney's! Our crew ordered up two lobster rolls, a chicken strips platter, some fried calamari, onion rings and a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting. Instead of eating at the restaurant, we got take-out, but by the time our food was ready, we'd finished our beverages. And this is on top of waiting forever for the people in line before us to place their orders. Spinney's, I like the food, but the pace is kind of slow for my taste.
Came here after laying on the beach for a few hours for dinner. The restaurant is nice, with friendly staff and great views of the ocean. The lobster however was not good. We ordered 2 lobsters but they seemed old and they were soft shell. The meat was not too sweet and there was very little of it. It seemed like most of the shell was just empty. Once we started digging in, we saw a small sign that said we had to ask specifically for hard shell lobster which had more meat and is much sweeter, in order to not get the soft shell. Too bad most people never think to do that. The side dishes were also unimpressive. The onion rings were thin and coated with a thick, hard batter which was really oily. The rice was pretty flavorless even after I put butter and salt on it. The fries were decent as was the corn on the cob. The clam chowder was pretty good. And the clam steamers were okay at best. Unfortunately this place is the only food choice if you go to this beach, so the food probably won't get much better. But honestly I didn't need to go all the way to Maine to have lobster of this quality. I could've gotten this at a Shoprite in New Jersey.

Edgewater Farm B & B

Reviews:
I have been to EdgeWater Farm Bed and Breakfast three times in the past three years and I plan to return there again next summer. Popham Beach is nearby and between swimming at this beautiful beach and experiencing welcoming and attractive accomodations at the bed and breakfast, this place on the map has become my favorite vacation spot. I love the lush perennial gardens, apple trees, and sweet grassy paths that surround this home. Inside, there is a lively and interesting collection of art and books so if you forgot to bring reading material there is a good chance you'll find something here. The common space where breakfast is served is large, open, and full of light coming in from sliding glass doors. The bedrooms are all painted with an artful flair and with an eye for color and I found my room very comfortable. Bill and Carol are kind hosts ready with suggestions (if asked for) of places to explore whether it is beach or town. And the breakfasts? Really wonderful and fresh as in fresh from the garden. This is a place to come back to, summer after summer--an experience to be woven in with the best of summer memories.
Hubs and I were in Maine for about a week, enjoying the glorious land that is Maine. Our last two nights were supposed to be at the Edgewater Farm Bed and Breakfast. We made the reservation over the phone. I was very excited, because there were so many excellent reviews from others who had enjoyed themselves. We arrived in the late afternoon, and were shown to our room. The grounds of the farm are quite lovely, lots of flowers and veggies. Entering the home, the owner showed us the area where breakfast is served, then showed us upstairs to our quaint little room Now, I understand that B&Bs all have a personality of their very own. The decor and personality of this home was provided by someone who went to every garage sale and estate sale in a tri-county area, and bought up all of the used bedding, towels, and table linens in the 1990s, and has been using them since then. The bed was very soft, like the sort of mattress that one might find in a cheap motel. The towels in the bathroom were of mismatched colors, and rough, oh, so rough. There were signs in the bedroom, the bathroom, and by the front door that instruct you to take short showers and not waste water. I just could not get over how uncomfortable the entire home felt. The walls in the house were quite thin, as I could hear the guests in the room across the hall speaking in hissed whispers as I walked by. If I can hear whispering through the door, imagine what a regular conversation would sound like. But, we made these arrangements in advance, and, what are you going to do. So, we went back into town for dinner, and decided to go back to the farm and relax. Unfortunately, there is nowhere to relax. The bed is uncomfortable, and there isn't anywhere to hang out on a couch. The only place to go is to the main dining area, which also happens to be the only place in the house where the wifi works. The owner's wife had returned, and greeted us. In the meantime, we tried to figure out how to turn on the heat in our room. It turns out that our room is the only room in the house that did not have its own heat controls. I was freezing. We discussed this with the wife. She suggested that we turn the heat up to 60. Really? I am in a fleece, with a hat on and a puffy coat. No, I would like to turn it up higher. Now, she is irritated with me, and tells me that she likes to sleep in a room that is cool, around 55 degrees. We go back and forth on this for awhile. She agrees to let us turn the heat up, but the insists that we absolutely CANNOT open the window. Why, my husband asks. Because it is wasteful. By this time, I have had it. Between the mattress, the rough exfoliation towels, and general uncomfortable nature of the B&B, I just didn't think I could take it anymore. When I travel, I want to be comfortable. If you have a B&B where strangers book rooms and you agree to provide accommodations, I hope that you understand that these people will pay you money, and they will use the heat, use water, and want to be comfortable. The wife was just rude. And, the expectation that we would stay there, not use the heat or the water was just ridiculous. I understand that resources are precious - we are from Seattle, which is the Mothership for recycling and carbon footprint reduction. But this was just unfriendly and ungracious. So, we decided to leave. Upon our departure, the owner informed me that she would be able to evaluate any Tripadvisor review that I might leave, as if she might be able to edit it or change it. Thankfully, they do not require payment up front. I am sure that there is a market for this type of accommodation, but I am not that person. I would NEVER come back here, nor would I recommend. I wish the owners the best, and hope to never see that unpleasant lady again.
