Slates is in an old building in downtown Hallowell. It is very well done inside and has a great atmosphere. The restaurant can get busy for brunch so the service will slow a bit. But, the food is worth the wait. Reservations are accepted for 6 or more.

We ate a sumptuous dinner here on a weeknight. We did not have to wait, but we didn't get there until 8pm and they were very busy, but there were a few open tables. The menu includes upscale entrees as well as a variety of salads, burgers, etc. with unique flavors and seasoning. Dessert was also good. We shared a single slice of vanilla cake with raspberries and whipped cream. Oh myyy!! It has an eclectic and artsy atmosphere. They had some local artwork displayed on the walls, the tables are all handpainted with different designs. The server had a long braid of hair past her waist. You get the idea? It's a funky, eclectic place with great food and service. Check it out!

This place is excellent. The restaurant. I have not been to the bakery. The food and atmosphere are to die for.

We arrived for Sunday brunch at noon,recently, meeting another couple. No problem parking on the street right outside. Once inside, though, we had to wait 30 mins in the very small entry area. No reservations for parties of less than six and there were some large, loud, groups. Food was very good and reasonably priced. We had seafood Benedicts and omelets and they were great, as was the Bloody Mary. Service was good and decor kitschy..Still not sure if we will go back because waiting that ling in a cramped space was off putting.

Slates is an eclectic restaurant with homespun charm and local flavor.

Slate's puts a premium on organic, local food and flavors without beating you over the head. In short, if you want a more formal dining experience (besides a pub/tavern/bar) in Hallowell, without the chain-restaurant facade, this is the place for you.

You might wait a bit for a table (read - popular!) and the service is usually fine (read - they're busy a LOT). However, at the end of a meal, you'll be exactly where you want to be....filled with a great dinner, including apps, drinks, and desserts.

Personal faves - Blood Orange Martini, Baked Brie w/ Peppercorns, Blackened Chicken, ANY DESSERT!
