Sanford Maine Region Local Attractions
York Country’s Sanford area is a treat for both locals and visitors alike! Check out a few of our local favorite restaurants. Feel free to let us know if you find a great place!
The Oak Street Bistro – Alfred
Relatively new to our area, tucked away in the village of Alfred, is the Oak Street Bistro. The building has been totally renovated, and features the Arts & Crafts Style of the early 1900s. A pleasant feature is the fieldstone fireplace in the lounge room, where patrons can enjoy dinner or a lighter fare, as well as the musical interlude, provided on weekends.
The Back Street Grill – Sanford
A great place for those looking for a pub atmosphere, look no further. The BSG is ready for your next lunch or dinner. Check out their Take-out menu, too!
The Lodge at Spring Hill – South Berwick
When you are looking for dining a little further away, venture southwest to the town of South Berwick and follow Pond Road, until you arrive at Spring Hill Lodge. Overlooking Knight's Pond, this is the perfect setting for a quiet dinner or a wedding reception.
One of the best kept secrets in the area for fine food and good times! If you are looking for a relaxed, sports bar/biker bar atmosphere, then visit WILLY’S ALE ROOM. For a more upscale dining experience, go to the other end of the building in the octagonal room (The SHED) where you will be greeted by the charming wait staff and fantastic fare – the same chef, Chris Palladino, serves both restaurants – it is just a matter of taste which way you choose to dine!
TED’s Fried Clams – Shapleigh
Since 1954, The Mavrakos family has delighted families who are looking for the ultimate in seafood. Whether it is fried clams, fried haddock, steamed clams, steamed lobsters – whatever! TED’S has it all.
KEEPIN’ IT LOCAL – Shapleigh
Opened last year in the village of Emery Mills, and then moved to its new location, just up the road from our office at 120 Emery Mills Road. It is a delightful country store, sells LOCAL meats and poultry and now, has a great dining area AND a drive-through window for ordering. Give them a call at 207-432-0313
