    The Spruce Point Inn is recognized as one of the top dining spots on the Maine Coast. Our three Boothbay Harbor restaurants – 88, Bogie’s and Deck – offer a variety of Maine dining options. Open to the general public, each restaurant offers a mix of traditional favorites and unique native dishes.

Locally fished, farmed and gathered – to your plate

 

Food & Wine Magazine came up with the idea of “Collaboration Nation” to describe chefs working with customers, vendors and each other to bring the best flavors and experiences to those who love food. The principles of Chefs Stiles and Weinerth are sourcing, preperation, and enhancement.

Here at Spruce Point Inn in Boothbay Harbor, our Chef's have operated on these principles from the beginning, sourcing the locally fished, farmed and harvested ingredients from the best seasonal farms and producers in Maine. They then prepare the menu with cooking techniques that preserve the foods integrity and nutrition. The final product is enhanced by optimizing nutritional value via product combination and menu diversity.

Midcoast Maine is the beneficiary of a cornucopia of retired/relocated professionals who have left banking or IT to go back to the land and Chef Stiles – who grew up on a farm in local Lincolnville, just up the road -- has built relationships with local farms and other food purveyors, sourcing ingredients like the fresh Aroostook beets and lavender-honey chevre from Tourmaline Hill Farm, greens from the hothouse built by a drummer from the band Phish and cheese from the State of Maine Cheese Company, a business created by a Manhattan banker in Rockland.

It's an exciting time to be in the restaurant business and especially exciting to be part of what’s happening here, says Chef Brooks.
