The playful folks who own Mexican restaurant El El Frijoles (get it? L.L. Bean) down the road in Sargentville (also worth a stop) opened this equally playfood take-out seafood shack on the Castine town dock in 2015. Chef Kara van Emmerik makes a fish and chips—in the British style, with smashed peas and all—that’s worth a drive up the coast for. The lobster roll’s a winner too, with freshly picked meat and the option of an adventurous curried mayo. Everything’s made from scratch, so the wait might be a bit longer than you expect from a no-frills waterfront stand; it’s worth it. Locally churned ice cream seals the deal.
