The MAINE

Best for family-friendly dining

A crowd-pleaser for all ages

Trendy and upmarket minus the pretence, The MAINE is the perfect restaurant to bring the family for a night out. This laidback spot features an extensive menu serving staple dishes from the coastal Pine Tree State,  making it ideal for any group bringing diverse or picky palettes to the table. The crispy fish and chips offers something familiar yet fun, but if you’re looking to experiment, the Rigatoni with eggplant bolognese is the dish for you. Even little Mainers can enjoy treats from their very own menu featuring classics like gooey cheese melts and margarita pizza to short rib croquettes for young foodies in the making.
