REVIEWS OF Aunt Gin's Restaurant IN Maine

Linda Peaslee

Good food, good people. Loved it!

josh blanche

Excellent food and extra friendly staff!

corey roberge

Not very good. From the warm ice water with no ice, to the unexpected black olives in a breakfast burrito. Everything was just kind of bad. Won't be back. Service was at least friendly, not good just friendly.

kerin grayson

It was awesome. The best restaurant that we have been too for along time.

Kelly Tekverk Gottlieb

Food was okay. If you are looking for a decently mixed cocktail, skip this place. They need to hire a professional bartender.

Kay Rabbit

It's an okay place to go as a small group. I've been with a party of 5 and they only had 3 silver ware on the table took 2 times to get the drink order correct and they forgot to split out check. Again it's an okay place but I did like the little girl cook she had a nice attitude and smile.

Richard Gallant

Fantastic seafood!!! Three meals: Baked Stuffed Shrimp, Baked Scallops and Baked Seafood Plate. We couldn't stop raving about how well the entrees were cooked and how delicious they were. Service was excellent!

Shannon Leonard

I didn't even know they were there! Wonderful friendly service and the food was okay...

Nathan Brown

Delicious food, buffets on Sunday and Friday got breakfast and dinner respectively. Both are great, cozy atmosphere, lovely staff.


I went there for lunch and had the bacon mac and cheese. It wasn't bad but may have been better had I been a little more hungry.

Michael Brown

Our first stop in Maine did not disappoint! Really delicious comfort food. The best baked beans we've ever had, and the owner was welcoming, friendly, and generous. Worth a detour.

Tyler Dustin

The owner is very polite and respectful. The food is amazing. You want a quiet friendly environment go here

A Boston

Everything about this place was great. Think it will be my new favorite go to place.

Tenna DuBois

Omg, great meal, good service and very accomadating for vegan daughter. Hats off to Cathy

Amy Perry

Nice food, good prices, quiet, calm atmosphere. There were a few flies buzzing around so we quickly ate, and left. Thats my biggest irritaion, go to a restaurant and have flies buzzing, around and bugging you while you eat. They stated the night before was so hot they had door open, I truly understand it has been hot!!

Tom Hamlin

We were there for the Mother's day buffet. We were pronised it would be excellent. It was far from excellent. Very basic buffet.. And $25 a head...ridiculous.

Very slow food service took us an hour to get our food. Charged us even for rolls. Lobster roll didn't taste like Lobster. Would never go again!!!

Racheal Maurice

The food and prices were good. There was only one waitress working the restaurant so it was a little slow, but qorth the wait.

Amy Sutter

Delicious breakfast, cute spot...we will be back!

Heather D

Hands down best Lobster Roll I have had!!! So Amazing. The roll was huge 8in, soft, and fresh. The lobster in the bottom was mixed in, what tasted like a mayo/basil type spread. It was sweet. Then topped w/ additional huge chunks of lobster w/ a side bowl of butter for dipping. It was to-die-for. Coleslaw also delicious and creamy. The inside of the restaurant is very nice, clean, comfortable seating, and everyone was super friendly. Will definitely be a regular from now on.

Robyn Loglisci

Family took us to this quaint little gem. Loved the company and the breakfast buffet!! Delicious!!

Ellis Redevelopment

Went for breakfast. The orders came out correctly, and the food was really tasty. The sausage was especially yummy. The raisin toast was delicious as well.

Sarah Hall

I'm usually 100% happy with my visits but today I saw a whole new side I'd never experienced. No dinner rolls (still in the oven at 430 pm. I asked for a drink and the waitress had to see if the ingredients were all there then never checked. When I mentioned it she said she'd been busy cutting up salad stuff. Finally she brought it. 8.75 and definitely not worth it! My husband and I ordered the pot roast dinner. It was all hunk of pot roast 2 small cut up potatoes and I guess it was supposed to have carrots! Very very disappointed! I think we've eaten our last meal there. Makes a difference I guess when the owners not there!!

Matt Davis

Service and the food was great. Owner was very pleasant. Definitely will eat there again.

josh guenard

Love the home style cooking here

Aili Jin

Great food and service, with lots of vegetarian options! There is an extensive menu traditional of American dishes, with a surprising number of vegetarian choices, including on the kids menu. The servers were very friendly and accommodating to making some small changes to make other dishes vegetarian. this is not fast food! Everything was made from scratch, and from fresh ingredients. Quality food, but not a quick meal if you're in a hurry. The homemade black bean veggie burger was delicious and the garlic parmesan fries were too.

Gary Perry

Figured we try it with you with high expectations looked over the menu the selection look great looked a little pricey for a roadside diner we figured we’d give it a try my wife had a tips not something we would break the door down for way over done potato was hard my friend had the seafood platter haddock was great scallops good the clams were strips not as described (full belly)I had the macaroni cheese and bacon very disappointed we will try it one more time once we get up the courage

Sarah Green

Food is great and service is even better. The owner treated us like his own family. Would definitely recommend stopping by. Lots to choose from and fairly priced.

Lisa Gray

Talk about a hidden gem right out in the open! This adorable little home turned restaurant deserves more than the max 5 stars! The service is superb and the food is phenomenal! Couldn’t get anymore home cooking than this! Deliciousness overload! They also offer a full bar! And a dessert menu that will make your eyes pop!!! A must visit on your way south to Rockland or north to Augusta! Kid friendly! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kailey Willette

Went by this place last night and thought it looked to be a great place, so we go in, get our drinks, order appetizers, and 2 meals. Mind you this place was getting less busy by time we were sitting. We waited 1 hour and 15 mins to not only be forgotten about, people who came in after us got their food before us, well they proceeded to get up and ask to speak to a manager then a kid very unprofessionally says uhm yeah sure, gets the manager, then the guy says all of their food is cold, meanwhile this whole time Before i can hear our waiter saying she lost the ticket for the food for a table, and she didn’t know what to do, etc. the waiter comes back over to refill one of our drinks, and says I hope your food will be out soon. Horrible horrible service. Can’t even say we got to try the food after waiting an hour an a half almost for it... I wouldn’t even give them 1 star... ridiculous.

Emily Bongiorno

Driving towards Portland and found this cute place to eat !! My cocktail was great and the good was even better !! Down to earth place with friendly waitstaff

Kathy Ricker

Cheryl Reilly

You always feel welcome when coming to Aunt Gins, the food is amazing and the staff feels like family, this has become our favorite place to eat

Robert Kanzler

Worst prime rib I have ever seen tuff and the sea food plater was not fit to eat grease was old way to hot everything was dark looking and the clams was strong tasting. Nice building food not so great.

Jay Sanborn

Nice place, great atmosphere, food is very tasty.

Julie Davidson

Great food and wait staff. The owner has been there every time we have gone making sure everything is perfect!

Andrew Miley

Awesome buffet

kelley dyke

Thought the place looked beautiful inside and the food was very good.

Stacey Taylor

Great bloody mary!

Nathan Gross

Generous portions of hearty, traditional, home-cooked favorites like casseroles, pork chops, and meatloaf, alongside of contemporary takes on pizza and burgers. Also a great kids menu thats a notch (or two or three) higher in quality than a typical kids menu. Definitely something for everyone. There's a nice bar with a large tv. The dining room is casual but nicely furnished and clean. It's a locally owned establishment and it's clear that the staff here are a part of this community and they care about the customers they serve.

Jon Naftzger

Great environment with very hospitable people. The food was excellent and done to near perfection. I highly recommend the pickle chips and sweet potato fries.

James Stiles

Outstanding food and staff. My mom loved it. Probably the best mother's day ever. Thank you Emma!

Caitlin Geishaker

Delicious meal and wonderful service! Thank you!

Faith Bardy

My husband and I are very new to the area well we're very new to Maine lol. We had passed Aunt Gins many of times in the last 30 days. Sometimes super busy sometimes not so much. We would see the sign for the Finally Friday Comfort Food Buffet and say we're gonna have to try it. It's a very unassuming looking place, welcoming not flashy. So Friday night came and the hubs said lets try it out. He googled the reviews and the menu before of course. Man this one time I'm glad I listened to him! The second we hit the door you could SMELL the goodness! Friendly hostess and waitress helped us decide between ordering and buffet. We chose buffet after we looked at it. Even though all the food off the menu around us looked and smelled incredible. My oh my it was so good everything was good everything. Fish, stuffed pork loin, real red skin mashed potatoes, lasagna, American chop suey, soup,salad, pot roast, veggies, deserts,homemade breads and puddings. Plus so much more I'm still full it was awesome. Lesson learned try it you might like it or in this case love it! We'll be what we call regulars as long as we live in the area. Oh and it's all very well priced too. ❤

Georgianna Gatcomb-Pass

The food was delicious. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. Our waitress, Kathy was so sweet. She brought our sons food out shortly after the appetizer, understanding that it is tough for a 2 year old to wait. Their is something on the menu for everyone

Have had a great experience on multiple visits. All of the items have been delicious, and came out promptly. The servers and managers are very friendly and welcoming. The building is kept in very good shape.

Lucas Mitchell

The salad was from a bag. And the prime rib had no pink and the Mac and cheese and bacon sandwich was microwaved and so were the fries

Sue Pinette

Food was very good, great service.

Echo Bilodeau

The Friday night comfort food buffet is awesome!

William Linnell

Fast and friendly service. Great atmosphere. Owners came out and talked to everyone. Plenty of food and oh so delicious. My family and I did Thanksgiving there a couple years ago and will be back again. Thank you Guys for a great Thanksgiving meal.

After Darkling

Host/Owner was very welcoming and thanked each table of customers for coming in. We did the dinner buffet, huge selection of home cooked comfort foods. Blueberry bread pudding was delicious.

Harry Fitzgerald

Very good

Erica Tompkins

Great home cooking!

Rich Casselberry

Great food and friendly staff

Russell Hudson

Not at all worth the money. This place serves the same fare as most other cheap country diner-style restaurants in Maine, but at 2 times the price or more. We were taken aback at the prices at first, but the decor was nice (for backwoods Maine) so we decided to give it a chance. My wife had the open-faced turkey sandwich, which was old, crusty, and just plain bad-tasting. I had the haddock sandwich, which was mediocre and nothing more. Our daughter had fish sticks and some questionable macaroni and cheese. We ordered meals on the cheaper side as we were't really expecting to shell out $50 for a roadside bite to eat, but that's what it cost us in the end anyway. We had an appetizer of fried pickles, which were delicious. But several hours later I found myself quite ill, spewing out of both ends. Not a cool experience, and not at all worth it. The staff were pleasant and professional, but that didn't make up for the bad food.

ginny scofield

Family gatherings are very comfortable! No pressure to leave kids & all. The owner are wonderful.

Donna Ryder

Great meal. Pleasant staff. Cozy!

Adam Brandt

Stopped for a quick lunch and had an amazing fresh lobster roll with BIG chucks of lobster! Washed it down with an oversized Bloody Mary, excellent spot!

Christopher Gilbert

Wonderful dinner! Great breakfast buffet: Personal service! What more can you ask for?

Kristin Heal

The lasagna is amazing and the atmosphere is welcoming, well worth the drive!!

Valerie Lovelace

Quite possibly the best Reuben I've ever eaten. My my. Great service, nice portions and oh-so-tastey food. I look forward to another visit some day!

Ginny Scofield

Delightful ~ customer service is awesome, every time! Food is delicious for sure. Great place for families also large groups. Thank you Aunt Gin's

robert metcalf

Waiter was super funny and very freindly

Tammy Buck

Always disappointed with food but go for my Dad. Last night was the last time I will go there. At least an hour wait for food, terribly slow service and then I was immediately sick after leaving. Fun times

Debbie Farrell

Server pleasant, service slow, 4 guests each meal served 15 minutes apart. Obviously kitchen prepares one entree at a time.

Spencer Sansouci

Tl;Dr: Very nice over all. Good food, great atmosphere, and pretty affordable. You can tell they are a new (07/31/17) restaurant because they were constantly asking if my food was prepared the way I wanted it, or if we needed anything, or if "everything was okay". They are extremely consiensious of their customers well being, and I think their intentions are good... But everyone has their own opinion; Like some people who posses a higher amount of life experience might enjoy this personable meal check-in, but as a melenial, I found it was just a little too much. However, it was good to know they actually care, about the people they feed, and the future of their business. The food was very good. I ordered the seafood platter, and I wasn't able to finish it. The shrimp isn't the dinky Hannaford shrimp from a platter, it's a bigger, plumper, and overall better shrimp. The clams were delicious, end of story. Everything was fried, however, and while the scallops and clams we're delicious, I would have liked the option to have some variety of preparation, instead of the easy-out, "Just deep fry everything, they'll love it!" mindset. Just an idea. The atmosphere was very calm, and even though there were only 2 or 3, other groups eating near us, I feel like the building and the staff could handle the load of being completely packed, and still have a sense of and serenity and ease while producing quality food. Their bar selection looked plentiful, however, I didn't have the chance to experience it tonight. That review will be at a later date. Aunt Gin's location is on point for anyone in the Whitefield/Jefferson/Windsor/Chelsea or even outer Augusta and parts of Pittston. Contrary to my criticism earlier, Aunt Gin's eagerness to please their customers, ensure their comfort, and well being, is the reason I gave them 5 stars. They care, whether or not it's for their reputation and a good review. It's that difference that separates them from a chain spot, or up-town joint. So, try it out for yourself! It's a great place for a date, or family dinner, and you won't be disappointed.

Joseph Ovady

Wait staff should find a different job

cleverlady lisa

Grilled rib eye medium rare was done great. My mother had the lobster & crabmeat casarol and said it was very good.

dorothy mccollor

Cathy is an awesome hostess. And the food is exceptional always. Whether you have the buffet or order off the menu you will always be happy.

Asa McCarthy

Prime rib has so much barbecue sauce on it, you can't tell it's prime rib. Portion was also a bit anemic. Server asked for financial advice.

Rae Mckechnie

They're very nice

Diane Evasius

Our new favorite restaurant! The food is excellent!!! All of it , we have not had anything we didn't enjoy...the Friday night buffet and Sunday buffet's are excellent. Oh and the deserts are to die for. It's a nice clean inviting atmosphere with super friendly staff with prompt excellent service. You will not be sorry for stopping in and my bet is you'll be back!!!

Tatertot Keezer

It was our one and only time. Hostess was pleasant. The food was disgusting, had liver and onions with bacon, the liver was not cooked. Also we had an open faced hot turkey sandwich, the stuffing was hard, bread was tough, turkey left a bit to be desired. Mashed potatoes on both dinners was cold. Hostess did call the owner, didn't charge us for the meals, but never going back.

Rachel Hoover

Delicious food at a good price

Austin Foster

Recently went to Dinner. I had the prime rib, although is was as rare as rare could be and I ordered it medium they took it away and brought me some thing completely different which was excellent. There is a lot of debate about what is medium and what is rare and thats fine, for me it was way to raw....but how they handled it is why I gave them 5 starts.. Thank you very much... Sorry about wasting your food.... The second dish was great.

Patty Jolly

Awesome food! GREAT staff!

Dave Hutchinson

Great little place, excellent OWNER staff, food was great.

pam leach

I went to Aunt Gin's Restaurant for the first time last week. I'd driven past it dozens of times and noticed that it looked pretty busy most of the time (a good sign! ) but I was quite surprised when I finally went in! The restaurant had been renovated....or updated...and was quite tastefully done. The food was even more surprising! I ordered their meatloaf and I'm pretty sure it was the best I've ever had! The service was excellent and I'm definitely planning to return to Aunt Gin's!

Definitely will be back to try more things on their large menu! I want the crab Mac & cheese:)
