To celebrate our anniversary we took a plane to Portland Maine. We rented a Ford Escape and drove through the coastline of Maine. The Burch and Pine trees led us to the Acadia National Park to start our adventures or shall I say tasting our way through the rocky coast of Maine and back down to Portland!
Don’t Judge a Restaurant by its Cover!
We got off the plane and we were starved. We heard that Maine’s nightlife ends about 9 PM. We got our rental car, plugged in our gps and looked for a restaurant before the sun went down. It was 8:30 and we drove for miles. Our gps informed us that Schutty’s Restaurant was within a mile. We drove around in circles and we heard, “You have arrived!” We almost didn't stop because it just wasn't what we expected.
The little food trailer that we pulled up to was located to one side of a parking lot that was shared with a kayaking business and a church.
It was a very neat, clean, inviting place, with seating at picnic tables with umbrellas. It was obvious that the owners took great care in the overall appearance of Schutty’s, as it was adorned with pretty flowering plants, as well as several tomato plants. There was plenty to choose from on the menu,
and we chose our first Lobster Roll.
The rolls were grilled with butter and really enhanced the flavor of the lobster meat. The seafood was fresh caught and delivered the same day. Staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and service was prompt.
Later we learned that Schutty's Seafood was featured on WGME 13's "Road Trippin" with Dave Eid.
Check out the sneak peek! It was awarded 5 stars by TripAdvisor...and do not judge a restaurant by its cover!
