We spend our summers in Maine (from NYC) and Hattie's is our favorite local casual restaurant in beautiful little Hallowell. They serve much more than chowder -- fish, pasta, meat, and good salads. Service is fast and friendly. Decor is nothing special although the bar area is charming. On Tuesday night Hallowell hosts a rock and roll band by the Kennebec River across the street from Hattie's and all the locals turn out to listen, dance and schmooze. Delightful.
