Where to Eat
Bethel may be small, but the dining options are anything but. You won’t go hungry with pizza and pubs galore, cafes with great coffee, home-cookin’ diners, local food, fine dining, sushi, tapas, Korean, Italian, Chinese, a brewery, and legendary BBQ in a bright orange trailer. Just about everywhere, you’ll find very generous bartenders.
Love local? Bethel is surrounded by farms of all kinds, and their wares are popping on menus and store shelves more and more. And being in Maine, there is definitely no shortage of lobster and seafood.
Got a crowd to feed or just want to stay in? Gourmet-to-go and catering options are available from several establishments, for all the deliciousness but none of the work.
After dinner, head out on the town towards one of several after-hours destinations with live music or DJs who will keep you going until last call.
Tip: If you’re here mid-week, make sure to ask around for specials – there’s sure to be someplace offering $5 pizza or burgers, and finer dining establishments with affordable dinner-for-two menus.
