With 30 years of experience in the food industry, the owner of Prime Dip has always had a passion for food. This love comes through in hearty handheld creations such as the roast-beef dip sandwich overflowing with certified Angus beef and au jus, and the hot pastrami sandwich that comes topped with the restaurant’s housemade Booyah sweet hot relish. The drive-thru joint churns out other breakfast and lunch edibles including fresh salads, stuffed baked potatoes, and meatballs dressed in assorted sauces, cheeses, and toppings. The staff delivers to local businesses, and catering services are also available.
Tapping into expertise accumulated during 20 years in business, cooks at Greenhouse Cafe craft made-from-scratch sauces for sandwiches, pastas, and salads. They pull turkey breast and slices of french bread from a grill, covering the whole thing with tomato, avocado, provolone, and a housemade italian dressing. Fettuccini, linguini, penne, or angel-hair noodles are covered in Cajun seasonings, alfredo sauce, and shrimp like a bad public speaker at a culinary school.
The chefs at Sushi Zen Bistro aim to whisk taste buds on a trans-Pacific trip, crafting Japanese cuisine using fresh fish and preparation techniques straight from Japan. Drawing from a vast menu, they accompany their cut rolls, hand rolls, and specialty sushi rolls with lunch and dinner entrees, including grilled Atlantic salmon and beef teriyaki. These kitchen gurus extend their culinary skills beyond the Asian variety, also preparing North American fare such as burgers, pizzas, tacos, and quesadillas.
Modeled after the dark wood and stone beer halls that dot the European countryside, Bier Academy welcomes weary travelers with international drafts and classic pub eats paired with American beers and comfort food. Its beer menu helps guests plan a pint-fueled tour of the continent’s northeastern corners, with beers from Belgium, Germany, Holland, and the United Kingdom, including Chimay Blue Belgian dark ale or Paulaner’s hazy hefeweizen. On the American side, sudsy sippables from Allagash, Shipyard, and other thriving microbreweries help guests experience the nation’s beer renaissance one glass at a time. To complement this bounty of brews, cooks whip up meaty sandwiches and signature sausage plates featuring 11 kinds of links from around the world.
While working their way through the regular selection of brews or attending special beer tastings, guests stay abreast of international sports thanks to the bar’s fleet of flat-screen televisions, which often showcase international soccer showdowns. In the evenings, the TVs quiet down as the speakers amp up, prepping ears for live performances from local musicians. The staff also hosts poker tournaments and trivia nights every week, helping guests work on their bluffing skills or actually use their encyclopedic knowledge of Spuds MacKenzie’s family tree.
