    Food Paradise should have filmed “Grammies ” in Linneus, now that is a must stop, and it might have really helped Aroostook County. Nothing wrong with Dysarts just that they are close to a big city and many nights Grammies is standing room only and also home cooked with such large portions and very reasonably priced. If you are in the Houlton area check it out on south 2A.

       Grammies is excellent.  The Horn of Plenty is good, too; used to be in Island Falls, but last I knew it had moved to Route 1 in Houlton north of I-95.

      I did chuckle at your reference to Bangor as a “big city.”  I guess it is all relative.

    • I agree ! Grammies is awesome ,makes one the best lobster rolls in the state ,everything there is awesome …….. Someone should also try to put it on “diners, Drivins and Dives “on the food network …………… It truly is an awesome place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If they wanted “Food Paradise,” Dysart’s is the last place I’d go.

       Yeah, the last time I was there I’d said I would never go back and I haven’t. It went from good food to a choke and puke.

    Since Dave Dysart passed, the food is not as good, not as big a portion but the price has increased, greatly. They now only focus on the tourist and never offer any type of deal to their local diners. Certainly not like it used to be and that is why we do
    not go there regularly.  Other folks who reside nearby have stopped also.
    To bad but I don’t think anyone is listening to the customers and neighbors, anymore.
