New American Restaurant

“Wow. If you can only go out once, I think I'd choose the Damariscotta River Grill. The food is a cut above, and the ambience is splendid. Sit upstairs for the best atmosphere, and if you like lobster, the lobster risotto is to die for!”

“Un-fussy food with a view of the water, this is one of the places locals get their lobster rolls. With live music and boat tours leaving from the docks, best place to see a good mix of locals and tourists. ”
