Route 187 at Bridge Street
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
My headquarters for my soiree into Down East Maine was a cabin rented on Great Wass Island, 4 miles down a dirt road east of Jonesport. I mention this because the couple that rented me the cabin said I had to try Tall Barney's - best clams they'd ever had.
Try them I did, my first meal in the area. And the clams are great and definitely among the best I've had. They also are know for their breakfasts. A few days later I tried that day's special - corned beef hash, a couple of eggs, toast and coffee - all for $3.89. A fine, hearty Maine breakfast at any price.
There's a long table in the center of the room, sort of reserved for local lobster fisherman. And there's a constant conversation going on among the regulars which is probably the best way to find out what's happening and who it's happening with in Jonesport.
