Bagaduce Lunch

145 Frank's Flat
Penobscot, ME, 04476, United States
TEL: (207) 326-4197

The ospreys are often circling overhead at Bagaduce Lunch, a no-frills take-out restaurant on a tidal river in Brooksville—and recipient of a James Beard “American Classic” award in 2008. At “the Bagaduce,” the seafood menu hasn’t changed since current owner Judy Astbury’s father, Sidney Snow, first hung out a shingle in 1946. Since then, this shack (which shutters from October to April) has built a thriving summertime business catering to Blue Hill–area locals and travelers en route to Deer Isle who can’t get enough of the house specialties: plump lobster meat served on buttery toasted hot dog buns, golden fried haddock, and homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie. Angle for a picnic table with a good view of the neighboring falls. You may even see a seal.
