Hi:
We are vacationing at the end of the month in York Beach Maine and wondering if anyone had any restaurant recommendations or even ice cream places. Many thanks!

Hi,
We love York Beach and have been going there for about 6 years.
For icecream we go to the York Beach Dairy Bar( known to us as the blinky cone) for soft serve. Our DD gets a cup of chocolate with sprinkles.
For dinner we go to Foxes on the Nubble. There she has fish and chips and fish chowder. They also have burgers.
We do not eat desserts in restaurants.
If you like lobster we can suggest Chauncey Creek not far south in Kittery Point. She has had lobster there. In years past we have had breakfast at Norma's on route 1.( in a strip mall near route 95 entrance.
Pizza by Parras at Long Sands.
There is a fudge shop called Josie's. We get plain chocolate fudge there. The owner seems aware. I think someone in her family has food allergys. She told us to tell the counter person about PA and ask for a clean knife. I always watch and remind about cross contact. We have never had any problems at any of these places.
There are a couple of seafood places in Wells also but I can't think of the names right now.
We usually stay at the Sunrise Motel because they have kitchenettes. Last year we camped at Camp Eaton. There is a Hannaford's supermarket on route one.
In Kittery you will find McDonald's and the Weather Vane and lots of outlet shopping.
Hope this helps as a starting point.
Of course individual comfort zones apply.
Enjoy!

Thanks Rosie's Mom!
Have you actually spoken to these restaurants about peanuts or did you just try them and they ended up being safe? Just curious. We actually ate at Fox's last time and it was great. We are staying right near Nubble.
Thanks again for your post!

Hi Tracy,
I have to stop and think about where we asked and where I thought was safe because of prior dining experiences and menu checking.
When we first went there our daughter was allergic to dairy so we ate our own food only.
The next time we stayed there we ate at all places except Fox's.I have to admit that I only read the menu. The bad thing at that point was that we had not seen the allergist yet and was going by the pediatrician who said to just avoid peanuts. We were not properly informed by him at all.
We avoided seafood until our daughter was tested for allergies and that is when we went to Fox's and I did check on peanuts and oil. Funny thing, on our first trip to Fox's our DD ordered a burger & fries and then decided she wanted the fish & chips when she saw my husband's meal. He ended up with the burger.
Hope you have a great trip.
Please let me know how you made out with dining there.
Shirley
