Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring: Hallowell is a small town outside of Maine’s capital, Augusta but, has some great places to eat. One of the most creative restaurants in town which just re-opened after a devastating fire is Slates. Slates offers an eclectic menu with the freshest produce and bake goods around. In addition, it is a fun, artsy atmosphere and is a great meeting place for Sunday brunch. Another great stop in town is Hattie’s Chowder House. Hatties makes some of the best seafood chowder north of Portland and they have a huge seafood menu from fried to stuffed to baked, it’s all good. The Liberal Cup is the local hangout with a wonderful old pub atmosphere and it’s own line of brewed beers on tap. The food is delicious pub fare and I highly recommend the Beer Cheddar Cheese soup and the fish n’ chips. Lucky Garden has a mainstay in Hallowell for years and for good reason, they have some of the best Chinese cuisine in the area. I love the General Tao’s chicken a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Perhaps you just want something simple and are craving some good grease! A stop in at Boley’s is just what the doctor ordered. They have some of the best hot dogs in town and homemade French fries around! Boley’s has been a popular place to eat since opening it’s doors over 30 years ago. Hallowell may be small but, offers some great choices to dine and if you are in the area make sure to stop in and enjoy yourself!
