Restaurants in Scarborough, ME

Even if Scarborough did not have a branch of Holy Donut (originally from Portland) with its creamy, potato-dough donuts, it is well worth a Roadfood visit because of Ken’s Place. Ken’s is a vintage Yankee drive-in (dating back to 1927), the sort of breezy summertime restaurant to which generations of locals and regular visitors have come to eat seafood, drink root beer, and be merry. For a more devoted focus on Ocean cuisine, check out the Rising Tide Restaurant, located at the back of the Pine Point Fisherman’s Co-op, where the view is of lobstermen bringing in their catch.
