So, we ended our 13 year Anniversary weekend getaway at a local eatery. Over the years this particular location has been many things, to name just a few Millennium, AJ's , Daisy Dukes and now... Buntsy's. My husband and I decided to try this new place and visit our ol' stomping grounds... lol.
The outside shell and it's entryway remained the same, but it's interior was beautifully upgraded with both a family dining/play area and an evening/bar area. With just the two of us we decided to sit at the bar for our meal. We were greeted by the most welcoming waitress who was happy to answer all of our one million questions... lol. The menu was filled with lots of yummy choices and made it really hard to choose, but we did it and found a few items to enjoy.
We ordered the Crispy Pickle Poppers to share, the Captain America Burger for Aaron and the Lobster Roll for me. Let's start out by saying the poppers were impressive! Who would have thought that dill pickles, cream cheese and bacon wrapped in a sprigroll would have been a perfect combination. Truly a genius move! Next we had my husband's burger. It was nicely made, juicy and full of flavor, even without any condiments (the way he ordered it). When you can accomplish making a tasty burger without having to add condiments for flavor, you've mastered the burger. And lets not forget the Lobster Roll... when they say "Real" on the menu, they mean it! This was true (non imitation / non fillered) Maine lobster mixed with mayo, celery and a hint of lemon on a buttery toasted New England Roll. I had yet to find a local eatery that could capture the taste of Maine, but today that changed.
Boy were we pleasantly surprised! This was a true find and ended a beautiful weekend with some amazing eats. We definitely recommend Buntsy's and hope to be back soon.
* Also, met the owner today. He is a local who has been in the restaurant business for over 25 years. With his knowledge and experience, he opened this eatery to put his spin on some of the amazing classics. It was a pleasure talking with him and getting to know a little of his back story. We hope to find this place thriving for years to come. Good Luck!
