The revitalization of Gardiner has a lot to do with the beautiful waterfront area and a host of great new businesses that have opened downtown. It has turned this little city into one of the coolest towns in Central Maine, in my opinion. And there are some great spots to get a drink and a bite to eat in Gardiner.

Once again, we will be using the website "Yelp and going by their list of the highest rated restaurants by customers. We will include Randolph and Farmingdale in this list. As is the norm, I have eaten at all 10 of these places and love them all. What do you think? Agree or disagree with the list? Feel free to comment on our facebook page.

And now, here they are from number 10 to number 1; the top rated restaurants from customers in Gardiner/Randolph/Farmingdale.


#10 Hi-Hat Pancake House-380 Maine Ave-Farmingdale


#9 Dennis' Pizza-Bridge Street-Gardiner


#8 Canton Village-Village Square Plz-Gardiner


#7 The Bench-418 Water Street-Gardiner

And there you have the top 10 customer rated restaurants in the Gardiner area. Some great places on this list, and all are locally owned.

Next week, we will head down to the coast and take a look at the top ten rated restaurants in the Boothbay Harbor Region.
