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!
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.
Excellent food good drinks friendly staff will go again
GREAT food and service
Amazing! The food was wonderful.
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!
Fresh made vegan dumplings. Delicious!
All I can say is: WOW!
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.
Great food, people and atmosphere!!!
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.
Food was good service was fair.
We were very pleased with the menu and staff. The presentation was great and everything was delish! We will return. Kathleen
Maine beers, locally sourced food, excellent specials & amazing staff! A great experience every time.
Best Poutine ever! Everything I've had here has been top notch.
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.
It's a great place! It's relaxing, the waitresses ars excellent and thr food is inventive !
Amazing food and atmosphere. Kind, informed wait staff.
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.
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!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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!
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.
Incredible food. Great staff. So surprised to find this gem!
Always great food!
Excellent. The demi was delicious, beer list was long and the service was helpful. Will definitely be back for more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good food. Strong menu. A bit off the beaten path bot nice location in re-done diner.
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.
I always walk away from Flux with a big smile. Food and service was great.
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
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.
You can get an excellent meal there with great service
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.
We love the food here. Cool, funky hip eatery for all.
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.
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.
Creative and delicious food! Our first time to Flux and everything about our visit was outstanding. This place is a hidden gem!
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.
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.
I wish I could eat here every day
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.
As usual great food and service!!
Interesting food choices
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.
NOT A $$ PLACE!! Try more like $$$...
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.
Good service, really great food. Cool little place. Live music was really loud but he got quieter as the night went on.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great beer, creative food. A little loud given the number of tables in the space.
Best burger hands down!!
Best place I ever worked, excellent food and staff as well as great artists, and a lot of the food is homemade :)
Good food didn't wait too long. Decor was a little scattered but over all I would go back
Have been twice now and everything from start to finish has been amazing! Will be back many more times and highly recommend!
Luv this place!!! Not your normal menu everything has a little different twist!! Food prepared perfect every time and staff is great!!
Always have wonderful daily specials accommodated with great service
Pricey, but the best fine food in Lisbon Falls!! Get the poutine....it 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!
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.
Love this place. Chicken wings are the best!... as well as everything else.
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.
good service, good burger and good beer.
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
Get restaurant,something for everyone, even vegan options! Loved it, will be back soon!
A hidden gem in central Maine. Excellent sea bass, salads.
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..
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!! ❤
Nice out-of-the-way place with a variety of well-prepared dishes. The staff are pleasant and helpful.
I love, love, love the food and the people at Flux! Clean, delicious and great choices!
Excellent food, service, and ambiance.
Great food, service is excellent and top notch craft beer selection! Recommended highly.
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.
Amazing locally sourced food and craft beer!
Great craft beer selection, food was amazing! Can’t wait to come back !!
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!
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.
Delicious fresh food, awesome service and environment. A very clean place I will definitely be going back.
Always a great meal at Flux.
Great food and great service!
Wonderful food, great beer and lovely staff. On top of that we had great company. I can not get much better then that!
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!
An awesome experience every time. The staff is extremely happy to please. Nice to have a conversation with the owners.
Best poutine I've tried. Scallops cooked perfectly, Korean style cauliflower was amazing.
The food is very good but not your average menu items. Prices are fair and service was good.
Excellent food and service and atmosphere!
Excellent food and service!
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.
