Route 1
Just North of Machias Town Line

Open Daily

Mathais is about four hours north of the Maine State line meaning tourists are scarcer than a top notch lobster roll. Joyce's lobster roll doesn't approach Reds but it is better than many. My only objection is that it's served on a bed of lettuce which is a lobster roll no-no.

The blueberry pie is ok too. Last year's blueberry crop put away for this summer. Machias is smack in the middle of Maine blueberry country and they take their pies seriously. The waitress called this "two crust blueberry pie" - I'm assuming because it has a top and bottom crust.

Nicest thing about Joyce's is that there is none of that Down East Maine orneriness about. As friendly a spot as you'll find so far up north.
