REVIEWS OF FLUX Restaurant and Bar IN Maine

Dean Swindler

After reading many reviews and an article in the local paper about the two brothers that opened a little restaurant in Lisbon Falls that served traditional foods, but with their own unique flare..., my friends and I had to stop in. We made reservations and upon arrival we’re immediately seated. Unlike most restaurants, we were each served with a glass of ice water and our drink orders were taken along with our order for appetizers right after. The appetizers, poutine and calamari, arrived shortly after and the presentation of them blew us away. Not at all what we expected, but no complaints and the flavors did not disappoint in any way. The personal flare of the two brothers for their presentation of the appetizers is over the top. For dinner, my friend ordered the Flux Burger and his girlfriend ordered the Far East Salad. My wife ordered the Sea Bass Special and I ordered the Fish and Chips. When served, the presentation of each dish was amazing. They were all pieces of art in their own form and unique flares. The flavors of each dish we’re once again - amazing. We usually don’t order desert when we dine out, but based on how everything looked and tasted so far, we went for it. My friend had the Chocolate Cake, his girlfriend and my wife shared a Creme Brûlée and I had the Strawberry Cheesecake. Needless to say, we ate it all. I will say that my wife loved not only the presentation of the Sea Bass Special, but she literally loved the sea bass as pictured below.

Exceptional food, great service! The dishes are creative and delicious. I recommend getting lots of appetizers and sharing so you can taste as many things as possible!

Nyador Nguany

Received a gift certificate for Christmas and I am so lucky I did! My husband and I have been in for both a late lunch and dinner and both times we were very pleased. The staff was kind and accommodating given we had our 9 month old son with us. I had the burger and my husband a chicken sandwich both were very tasty. The show stopper for me were the beef skewers, it melted in your mouth and the flavors were coming from all directions. Simply put, best place to eat in Lisbon.

Wayne Ackley

Excellent food good drinks friendly staff will go again

William Russell

GREAT food and service

Emiley Gallagher

Amazing! The food was wonderful.

Dory Streett

Came for dinner on a Saturday night without a reservation and it was packed, so we ended up at the bar which we like anyway, so that was fun. It’s a lively vibe in an attractive, trendy decor. I’d read a review in the Lewiston Sun Journal that included a description of the poutine, so I had to try it and it was well|-worth the calories (move over, Duck Fat). I paired that with the Far East salad (small portion, just right) which was a little too spicy for my taste but delicious. My husband had the steak frites, perfectly cooked and with a little deliciously wilted spinach underneath and a killer horseradish aioli. Two things keep me from adding the 5th star: the cocktails which were good but not great (the bar needs a broader stock of whiskies and their accompaniments), and our food was quite slow to arrive. In their defense, it was as noted a very busy night and there seemed to be several new staff members. We didn’t mind the wait too much, though, as there was lots of good energy and people were clearly having fun. Look at you, Lisbon Falls!

Kelly Creger

Fresh made vegan dumplings. Delicious!

Andy Winslow

All I can say is: WOW!

Stephen Ebersole

The food here is amazing. If I could keep it all to myself I would. So far after two meals there in the last month I am already looking forward to my next visit. Everyone is super friendly. My only complaint is that for such a small space they have the music cranked up pretty lound. IMO.

Ami Wilson

Great food, people and atmosphere!!!

Duncan Lane

Very nice beer selection (bissell, liquid riot, mast landing and numerous comparable micro breweries) and good food. Clean facility and nice aesthetics. The food uses quality, generally local ingredients and offers its own spin on some favorites (the fish and chips uses potato pave in lieu of French fries and a lemony, light cabbage slaw to create a visually stunning dish that is as tall as it is delicious). Plating is clean, servers are casual but consistently helpful.

Anita Alef

Food was good service was fair.

Kathleen Bailey

We were very pleased with the menu and staff. The presentation was great and everything was delish! We will return. Kathleen

Lisa Ward

Maine beers, locally sourced food, excellent specials & amazing staff! A great experience every time.

Amy Monahan

Best Poutine ever! Everything I've had here has been top notch.

Rev. Ria Ferris

I ordered the baked macaroni and cheese and it was delicious, full of flavor, served at the right temperature, and the portion was spot-on for the price. The restaurant was really nice and modern inside which is the opposite of what it used to look like when it was Mike's. The server was really sweet and friendly, although she didn't come back to ask us how things were... which leads me to my next part of the review. Although my food was delightful, my friend's BLT was not. The bread to meat ration was well in favor of the bread and it was a big hamburger bun, not even toasted. The BLT was incredibly disappointing and over priced...all bread and no substance. If they could somehow toast a couple pieces of Texas style bread or something that would change everything for future customers.

Stephanie Elizondo

It's a great place! It's relaxing, the waitresses ars excellent and thr food is inventive !

Christopher Gosselin

Amazing food and atmosphere. Kind, informed wait staff.

Crystal Tibbetts

If you're in the area and you don't go to Flux you're doing yourself a disservice. Their food is phenomenal, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is an elevated relaxed and inviting. The rotating beer selection never disappoints, the specials are consistently incredible and the menu changes enough to never get stale while keeping the staples to not disappoint. Jason and Tyson seriously nailed it. Even if you're not in the area, take a trip. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Fortyfat Andfabulous

Pleasantly surprised! Wow who knew that we would find such a great place in the middle of Lisbon Falls! Funky vibe, delicious food and excellent service. I had two of my favorite things.. a Bloody Mary and poutine, and tried the fried fiddleheads, which neither of us had tried before and was blown away by all of it. This is definitely a reason to head to this little town!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

CR Sanborn

Zingy, not-too-sweet margaritas, fabulous crunchy tempura cauliflower and delicious Brussels sprouts appetizers, amazing and perfectly done burger, and best fish and chips ever! Hard to save room for dessert, but sharing the chocolate cake was a perfect finish to a perfect meal. And our server was charming and very helpful. A totally positive experience! We’ll be back!

Phillip Jordan

Speechless! Fine dining at it's best! Locally grown homemade gourmet food, with many dishes from all over the world. American, french, Vietnamese or Asian fusion and probably many more! Prices are very fair, portions are great, staff are very knowledgeable friendly and professional.

Leon Griesbach

Incredible food. Great staff. So surprised to find this gem!

Greg Bianconi

Always great food!

Ryan Towle

Excellent. The demi was delicious, beer list was long and the service was helpful. Will definitely be back for more.

Brutella deKill

One of my favorite restaurants in the greater L/A area. The food is excellent and most of it is locally sourced. They also have creative cocktails which I very much enjoy. And it's sophisticated enough that you can dress up if you'd like, but you don't need to of you don't. They also have great specials during the week. I highly recommend.

galen richmond

Man, just all around terrific. They run a ramen special on Thursdays that is definitely one of the best renditions of that particular jam I've been lucky enough to eat. Go over there for sure.

amy belanger

Great beer selection! Server forgot to put our app in and didn't tell us until we asked what happened to our wings then didn't even apologize or make up for it. It was Taco Tuesday so I got the special and was not impressed for the price. The entrees start at $18 and that was not what I was expecting for what looked like a diner or what was on the menu. I wouldn't want to stay long either with how uncomfortable the seating is.

Diane & Fred Blake

It was excellent! And any claims that they water down the drinks is definitely not the experience that I had. The maragueritas were wonderful! As were the tacos! No, I'm not driving, thankfully. The food is excellent and the people were very personable. Highly recommended. Not your usual fare. So check out the menu online.


Dinner was great, our swordfish was delicious, prices weren't bad at all, seats too small and hard as a rock. Service was great.

Joe Newlin

Flux is one of those special places that is worth being a destination. Great food and atmosphere, absurdly reasonable prices, in the heart of Lisbon Falls. However, what is most exciting is to see how successful they have been moving into a downtown that has been struggling for years. Hopefully Flux is the first wave in the resurgence of this quaint town.

Charles Griswold

Really good broiled Oyster and mussel apps. Very good Steak Frites and seafood spaghetti. Our only grip was subpar Martini and small pour on wine by the glass. Overall, really liked it and will be back.

Robert Lenna

Good food. Strong menu. A bit off the beaten path bot nice location in re-done diner.

Emily Dingman

The food was excellent, even the vegetarian dish I had was unique and delicious. Service was great, and the pricing was reasonable. Everything from the appetizers to the drinks was delicious.

Kimberly Melanson

I always walk away from Flux with a big smile. Food and service was great.

Corinne Zimmerman

Always an excellent dining experience! Everything on the menu is fantastic and service is friendly and attentive. I'm so glad to have this gem so close to home!


Enjoyable food, The cake is to die for, the service was good a little slow, the prices were pretty high too, but all in all I enjoyed my time

Stephen Burger

My girlfriend and I went to Flux shortly after they opened and we enjoyed it, but we went again just recently, about a year later, and they have definitely found their groove! Everything was perfectly prepared. We shared the brussels sprouts to start. They were tangy and addictive. Then I had the seasonal grains bowl, in which every vegetable was the best version of that vegetable I've ever tasted. And even though I don't eat fish I couldn't resist trying some of the sauce from my partner's mussels: so good! We also split an order of fries, which were simple, crisp, and tender. We were stuffed, but I had to get chocolate cake and coffee for dessert--fresh whipped cream and a delicious, surprisingly light chocolate cake. Not so sweet you couldn't enjoy the chocolate. All this, plus a great selection of Maine beers. This was a perfect evening and we'll definitely be back.

Calvin Buzzell

You can get an excellent meal there with great service

Kaleb Boucher

Unique dishes for little old Lisbon. Quite tasty dishes and friendly staff. A nice place to eat in Lisbon for a dinner or lunch time.

Suzanne Lauzier

We love the food here. Cool, funky hip eatery for all.

Todd Reedy

Great tasting dishes. Must try the Poutine. Easy location to get to.


Ew. Nothing much to rave about really kept us waiting & food wasnt much for the price. Good thing we weren't on lunch break.

John Beckwith

We arrived hungry from out of state somewhat before dinnertime at my sister's house, so we decided to try Flux. Five thirty was a busy time this Wednesday afternoon. The limited entree choices were rather pricy for an impromptu meal, so my wife and I ordered the fried chicken sandwich. We were a bit dismayed that it took almost 40 minutes for our meal to arrive. My sandwich was good and crispy; the sauce and fillings enhanced it with tasty flavors. My wife's sandwich however, ordered and delivered at the same time, was very undercooked. (How does that happen?) She didn't want to make an issue of it and just ate the bun and some of the fries. My 10 year old son enjoyed the children's menu grilled cheese, but like my wife and I, he was disappointed with the French fries and just ate a few. Maybe an upgrade on the fries to some other kind would be indicated. I would have liked more side options with the sandwich, like maybe coleslaw. My impression was that most of the customers were locals (Lisbon doesn't have many restaurant choices) and they all seem to enjoy the deep fried fish and other deep-fried selections. There was a nice menu of specialty drinks and microbrew beers. I would like to have seen a larger variety of mid-priced entrees, but I suppose that if a place fills up with customers on a Wednesday for a small selection of entrees mostly over $20 there is no motivation to do that.

Anne Allen

Creative and delicious food! Our first time to Flux and everything about our visit was outstanding. This place is a hidden gem!

Katy Petrie

Great food. Great service!! I had Steak Frites, the sauce was lick the plate delicious. Everything was done with care and amazing flavor. I will definitely be going back.

Kristina Therrien

Service was great + good menu options. Poutine was amazing! Pricing a bit high and WAY too much gravy on dishes. Steak was over sauced and a bit chewy, not worth $27.

John Cooper

I wish I could eat here every day

Ralph Gabarro

First time and well worth it. The cuisine was excellent and was the service. There will be many returns to this great place. Ample choices of craft beer in addition to an enticing menu.

robert dow jr

As usual great food and service!!

Gosh Darn

Interesting food choices

Sarah Pearce

Really good food. Took a while to get it and my friends had their substitutions still there and theirs was undercooked. But mine was really good.

Marc Metzger

NOT A $$ PLACE!! Try more like $$$...

Shirley Boberg

Great family restaurant with delicious food and great prices. They have gluten free options and are willing to help you with dairy free. Some entrees are vegetarian too. I will definitely go there again when I am in the area. Highly, highly recommend.

Chris Watson

Good service, really great food. Cool little place. Live music was really loud but he got quieter as the night went on.

In Human Creation Media

I have had both good and bad service here. I have also had good and bad meals here. Correctly pronouncing alcohol brand names is somewhat important if you are a bartender.

Matthew McGuire

A great addition to Main Street! Don't miss their awesome and unique dishes if you're in the area. The owners and staff are personable and friendly. They listen to customers and are always adjusting and trying new things.

Jeffrey Ganong

Very good food! Creative dishes that that are just as pleasing to the eye as they are to the palate. The atmosphere and decor are very modern as well. I would highly recommend this place.

Daniel Butler

Excellent food!

Mary Conant

The food was delicious and some delectable and different choices. Atmosphere is modern and time appropriate. Waitstaff is very friendly and efficient. A great choice all around.

Amy in Maine

Great beer, creative food. A little loud given the number of tables in the space.

Jeff Cronin

Best burger hands down!!

Pricey, but the best fine food in Lisbon Falls!! Get the is an experience. Very cool vibe! Loved it and had a great time. Don't be afraid to get adventurous there....they are fine dining so the food is excellent. Portions are medium sized which is nice too!

Shannon Feeley

This is becoming my favorite restaurant in Maine. The food is exquisite, and the servers are wonderful. It is a very good environment, and can't wait to come back again to see what else is on the menu! I hope to try everything! Keep up the amazing work! Thank you.

Joseph Gross

Love this place. Chicken wings are the best!... as well as everything else.

Summer Wirth

TOP NOTCH from the first taste to the last without being pretentious or overpriced. The kitchen is clearly dedicated to providing an experience that is fresh on so many levels. Please do yourself a favor and save room for dessert. I dare you to order something on the menu that you assume you wouldn't like... They will assuredly change your mind.

Caesar Chau

good service, good burger and good beer.

Josh Locke

Food was great but the prices $$$$???? C'mon now won't ever be back to this overpriced ripoff restaurant.franks next door is a smarter choice

Anna Carll

Get restaurant,something for everyone, even vegan options! Loved it, will be back soon!

Greg D'Augustine

A hidden gem in central Maine. Excellent sea bass, salads.

M Goldie

Do yourself a favor and check this place out, even if it's out of your way, it's worth it! Everything is made from scratch. Tuesday is $5 tacos, Wednesday is $1 dumplings, all with rotating recipes. I've been a few times to both and been intrigued and pleased by everything. Especially the reuban taco! I also highly recommend the brussel sprouts with the steak fries or the beef bolognese..

Carol Vain

OMG! Yum, yum, yum. Everything is prepared at the restaurant... love me some excellent food and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Will be back soon!! ❤

Kurt Kaufman

Nice out-of-the-way place with a variety of well-prepared dishes. The staff are pleasant and helpful.

Cheryl Haggerty

I love, love, love the food and the people at Flux! Clean, delicious and great choices!

Diana Dunn

Excellent food, service, and ambiance.

Charles Jones

Great food, service is excellent and top notch craft beer selection! Recommended highly.

The Uptons

The poutine and mussel appetizers are both fantastic. And one of the best chicken sandwiches I have ever had. Service was friendly, but just a little slow getting food out. 100% worth the wait; the food is outstanding.

Whitney Allen

Amazing locally sourced food and craft beer!

Christina Alves

Great craft beer selection, food was amazing! Can’t wait to come back !!

Andrew Bartley

So grateful for a craft beer bar in Lisbon!!!! They focus heavily on Maine beers and it’s reasonably priced. The bartenders are all super friendly and helpful. The food is also excellent - tried the oysters from Edgecomb and they were to die for!!!! This is a real gem in Lisbon, check it out!

deborah s

Fabulous food; really can't wait to return. Very slight drawbacks for uncomfortable chairs and the room can be rather loud. Also a tiny bit slow to be served, given how early we arrived. Ambitious food done very well. Great drinks. Sparkling clean place. Totally worth the price.

veronica clukey

Delicious fresh food, awesome service and environment. A very clean place I will definitely be going back.

Tracey Steuber

Always a great meal at Flux.

Jon Hanson

Great food and great service!

Marijke Wilhelmus Rob Landman

Wonderful food, great beer and lovely staff. On top of that we had great company. I can not get much better then that!

Marcus Goforth

My son and I stopped in this weekend for lunch and we both loved it. I had one of the best taco salads ever and my son a very clever and delicious take on poutine...omg it was so good. We can’t wait to get back. Awesome food!

Chris Donkus

An awesome experience every time. The staff is extremely happy to please. Nice to have a conversation with the owners.

Scott Bonnell II

Best poutine I've tried. Scallops cooked perfectly, Korean style cauliflower was amazing.

Nancy Lamson

The food is very good but not your average menu items. Prices are fair and service was good.

Deb Rogers

Excellent food and service and atmosphere!

Harry Monahan III

Excellent food and service!

Rebecca Charest

My husband and I went to Flux for the first time last night. The ambiance was nothing to note, other than the music selection (Latin), which I enjoyed. The presentation of the food was extremely unique. However, the taste of the food was overall quite bland. The cost was average for a couple and for the type of establishment (this isn't fast food so don't expect to eat for less than $20 for two people). If the taste was as good as the looks of the food, I'd definitely rate it higher. Overall, rates a 3 in my book.
