Restaurants in Camden + Penobscot Bay

First, there’s the drive in, a lovely trip along the peninsula south of busy Rockland (where the Maine Lobster Festival is held every August). Down here it’s a scene from a Wyeth canvas: forests of black spruce abutting saltwater farms; the scent of pine mingled with seaweed.

This roadside spot on Highway 175 isn’t far from Northern Bay on Maine’s central coast, and it's open only in the summer. Owners Larry and Freda Reynolds prepare warm food to go using primarily local ingredients, including fresh-caught lobster and fish.
