Bucks Harbor Market:  6 Cornfield Road, Brooksville, Maine 04617, 207-326-8683, 7 AM – 6 PM  bucksharbormarket@yahoo.com (Market and restaurant)

“A quaint community market”, Buck’s Harbor Market is nestled in Buck’s Harbor, South Brooksville, Maine.

We offer a wide variety of foods, from pre-made dinners, delicious sandwiches, to organic local produce and eggs, quality meats, Dietz & Watson delicatessen items, gourmet cheeses, homemade bread, hot soups and coffee daily, and an extensive wine selection.

In the summer our tiny Market is very busy with summer folks docked in the harbor and those visiting their vacation homes along the coast. In winter we offer warm lunches to the local workmen and the brave few who hunker down for winters on the Blue Hill Peninsula.

Bucks Restaurant: Jonathan Chase, 9 Cornfield Hill Road, Route 176, Brooksville, Maine 04617, 207-326-8688 for reservations, bucksharbormarket@yahoo.com (Market and restaurant)

You are in for a real treat when you come to Buck’s Harbor. A short walk up the hill from our dock you will find one of the best kept secrets of the Maine Coast — a little restaurant called Buck’s Comfort Food Downeast.

The dining room is intimate and restful. The menu, created by noted local chef Jonathan Chase, is American cuisine at its best. Starters range from Prince Edward Island Mussels steamed in garlic and herbs to Mexican Summer Corn Chowder.

Entrees vary from Grilled marinated Swordfish in spicy mango and plum salsa to Tuscan Braised Rabbit with red onions, garlic and herbs. There are also the best grilled cuts of Black Angus Steak as well as Cider-brined Pork Rib chops with an expresso Ginger rub. Home baked bread, a complete Wine List and amazing desserts fill out the card (and you).
