From oatmeal to lobster rolls, if it’s a Mainer’s meal, it’s on the menu at The New Friendly Restaurant on Route 1 in Perry, Maine. Truly service with a smile, this bustling family-style restaurant is hugely popular among locals and tourists alike. The food is astonishingly fresh in a location that is at least a two-hour drive from a larger city. Eating here feels like eating with good friends. And that is a good thing because pre-Covid restrictions, it was often standing room only with lines out the door waiting for seats. No worries though, everyone knows everyone, and waiting is a great opportunity to catch up with a neighbor.
