One thing Maine does not lack is good restaurants. You must go to 'Costas' in Rockland. They say Rockland is the Lobster capital of the world. Had 3 lobsters for $20. The restaurant is an old fishing shack, still looks like one. There is no menu, they write the special on a giant piece of paper and read it to you when you come in. The tables are old uneven table with Newspaper table cloth and a cantee bottle with a candle. There is a giant wooden salad bowl waiting for you with huge slabs of bread, huge. The inside looks like it's still being used for fishing, right on the pier.
total unique, it was perfect, it made the whole trip.
Favorite Dish: lobster over pasta, seafood, seafood, seafood.
