There's nothing fishy about this poll. All right, maybe there is.
Just like everyone else, our online readers and on-air listeners love to eat, and because we reside right here in the great state of Maine a lot of what we like eating is seafood!
Yes, that's right, pile it on the plate. Many of us love a good dish of mussels or a bucket of steamed clams, and more than a few of us dream daily about biting into a crab or sweet-tasting lobster roll.
Then of course there's fried seafood, the kind that one drives miles for. Fried clams, shrimp, or a fried haddock sandwich are always a favorite weekend treat, or maybe something that you score at your favorite restaurant or take out on the weeknights that you just don't feel like cooking.
So throughout this past year, we've run polls asking where to go for hamburgers, pizza, Chinese food, steakhouses, Italian sandwiches, breakfast, barbeque, and ice cream. Now, it's seafood.
Where are your favorite places to go for seafood in eastern Maine? In cities and towns like Old Town, Bucksport, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, and Bangor? Yes, we know it's a common question that a tourist from Massachusetts or New Jersey would ask you, and we apologize for that, but we really want to know!
You'll notice that we didn't include "my kitchen or my house" as a response in our poll, because we just take it for granted that what you cook is the best, and you probably don't want a random tourist from Massachusetts or New Jersey just stopping by for clams.
Thanks for taking our seafood poll, and if we missed your favorite place then please add it in and we'll add it to the list.
