Coastal Maine Towns on List of
Best Place to Live for Foodies


Maine Waterfront Real Estate is more than the oceanfront position, deep water docks, private estate settings, crashing surf and lobster. Access to fine food, art, cultural amenities, and transportation is central  to expectations of those searching for real estate along the Coast of Maine.

Ogunquit, Portland, Camden/Rockport, and Rockland are listed among the top 25 best food towns in New England.

The creative restaurant scene in Coastal Maine, includes lobster pounds and award-winning recipients honored by The James Beard Foundation, Gourmet Magazine, and Food & Wine, for starters. “Foodies”, and those of us expecting a unique eating experience, frequent eateries too numerous to feature in the GoLocal article. Heralded favorites include Portland’s Bar Lola, Petite Jacqueline, 555,  Emilitsa and perennial stalwart Back Bay Grill.

Brunswick and the Bowdoin College community laud Scarlet (B’s) Begonias, Fat Boy Drive-In, Henry and Marty’s and Frontier. Favorites in beach towns like Kennebunkport include The Ramp Bar & Grill, Bandaloop, and The White Barn Inn.

Coastal villages of  Boothbay Harbor/Southport favor The Thistle Inn, and summer days at  Robinson’s Wharf for seafood and ice cream. Breakfast and lunch at Boynton McKay in Camden and evening revelry at Shepherd’s Pie in Rockport.

Lovers of Acadia National Park will remember Jordan Pond House, the Asticou Inn and The Claremont. Bar Harbor restaurant favorites include Havana Bar & Fathom Bar, with Watermark in Northeast Harbor, and Red Sky, Southwest Harbor. Accessed by boat only, adventurers will find Islesford Dock on Little Cranberry Island.

LandVest understands Maine luxury real estate, our waterfront villages and towns, and is expected to advise on local eateries as well as sources for organic food purveyors.
