    Chases in Belfast Maine.

    They own a farm and nearly all the food served was grown on that farm.

    They bake breads as good as any bread I've ever eaten, anywhere. Far better than most anywhere to be honest.

    The only problem is that it's a vegetarian restaurant so for me, a carnivor, the menu is a tad thin.

    But their french bread is as good as any I had in Paris.

    Live in a Marine Town, all we have is service related industry. You name it for a chain and it is here more than likely. ANd lots of local eateries as well.

    Don't do clubs or bars so no idea on that level. Not that far from Raleigh and even closer to Wilmington. On the coast so if you like sea food LOTS of local eateries for that as well.

    Probably my favorite when I can afford it is Texas Roadhouse, generally have the Salmon but the steaks are great too. Son loves it cause he loves steak.
