Bagaduce Lunch in Brooksville, Maine is a must stop if you’re en route to beautiful Deer Isle. This unassuming, no-frills take-out restaurant on a tidal river in Brooksville is the recipient of a James Beard “American Classic” award.
The menu, which serves up simple fried seafood fare, lobster rolls and homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie, hasn’t changed since 1946. Their clams and crabmeat come from Deer Isle, their lobster and haddock come from Belfast and their scallops come the Calais area. All is fresh and delicious.
Bagaduce Lunch are especially famous for their fried haddock burger. Lobster rolls are served in a toasted split-top bun. Sixteen picnic tables are scattered around the back side of Bagaduce, so customers can have a view of the reversing tides under the bridge.
