We chose this restaurant because lobster roll was mentioned as an item of theirs. When we sat down and saw a menu of burgers, we were told lobster isn't in season so they aren't serving it anymore. Alright.. so we ordered two burgers medium rare. The very small burgers with very minimal cheese and toppings were served well done for both of us. We had to use ketchup (my boyfriend really doesn't like tomatoes..) just to have the burgers moist enough to enjoy. The music was loud despite being mostly empty. Just unenjoyable all around. If you advertise gourmet burger choices, they should be well executed.

Relaxed atmosphere, place is super clean, service is fast and friendly, and the food was amazing. We stopped in for a burger after hiking trails on Schoodic peninsula and these folks did not disappoint. Price per portion is spot on too! We'll definitely be back soon. ?

My family and I ate here and there food was amazing. Quality service, quality food and very affordable. The ambiance was great and welcoming. I have had a lot burgers and this was one of the best I've had. That's coming from a foodie who lived in California nearly her whole life and lives in Chicago now. You guys are awesome!

Delicious burgers and cheese curds. After a few days of seafood, a cheese burger is a wonderful break.

Yummy! We were worried because so many places close early in Maine, or are not open at all. We arrived for a visit on a Sunday and were pleased to find The Pickled Wrinkle open.Greeted and seated right away. Sports bar type atmosphere with seating inside and out. Several TVs around which was nice for Sunday night football.Started with some local beers. I had a pumpkin cider which was the best I have had in my life. My dining companions enjoyed their beers as well.We had a crab/lobster topped burger, grilled chicken swiss sandwich, and pizza. Appetizer of a scallop topped flatbread. All very, very good. Generous portion sizes as well.Our server was quick and delightful. We were there for about an hour, and felt welcomed the entire time, even though they technically closed while we were there.Bill was $130- we felt was fair for what we ordered. Left a 20% tip and were happy to have visited The Pickled Wrinkle.

My husband and I went to lunch at the pickled winkle before visiting Schoodic area of Acadia (visiting from Colorado!) We had crab rolls and pizza - super tasty! Chill atmosphere and local beers too! ?

Another wonderful restaurant in Maine. The Gouda burger, fries & tater tots were fantastic!

Fantastic local place with great food and a cozy atmosphere. You can see that every employee in this place is working hard to keep everything delicious and running smoothly. Although they are short staffed, like most places these days, these guys make it look easy! Great for couples and families, indoor and outdoor seating options, great burgers and other delicious local food like dulse seaweed snacks which our toddler loves!

Don’t Think About the Name - Great Food - Plan Your Arrival!The Pickled Wrinkle Restaurant is open in October, which most restaurants in upper coastal Maine are not (the majority close around Columbus Day).It opens at 1:00 PM, so at 1:05 (when we arrived) all of the tables are full and the wait is 45-60 minutes, when the first seated & served start to leave. We had a choice of leaving (and going to the next closest place 30 miles away) or sitting at one of the outside bistro tables (with the vintage-looking but incredibly uncomfortable metal seats).The food was very good. It’s pretty much pub-type food (burgers, pizza), but still very good and doesn’t seem to be prepared mass-market frozen foods you tend to see in many places these days. The burgers and fries (potato and sweet potato) were fresh and the fries were very plentiful.Since they open right at the peak time (instead of, say 11:00 or 11:30) and the tables get filled immediately, if you come for lunch, everyone is ordering at the same time. And because they can’t cook everything at once, you may be in a queue for your food. Our 2 burgers took about 40-45 minutes. Even though they were swamped, the waitstaff was very attentive, kept our drinks refilled, and didn’t leave us hanging to order or pay.
