Located on the shores of Penobscot Bay and Lincolnville Beach, the Whales Tooth Pub serves up great food and good times year-round! Known for its British Style Fish and Chips. The fresh haddock and hand-cut fries and are served wrapped in newspaper – just like they do across the pond. Even Maine Magazine said: “Be advised: this dish is big enough for two, unless you’re trying out for Man v. Food.” Other favs include the Whale's Tooth Pub Burger, Haddock-in-the-Pan, and juicy steaks served with your choice of an ice cold beer from Andrew Brewing Co’s or a glass of wine from the Cellardoor Vineyard to quench your thirst. (Fun fact: Both these amazing beverage companies are located right here in Lincolnville!) [Link to Wineries and Breweries article].

The restaurant offers a scenic oceanfront deck where you can enjoy a warm summer day in Maine, or the “area’s biggest fireplace” burning four-feet long logs in the cozy dining room if the weather turns crisp. Lunch is available Saturdays and Sundays starting at 11:30 a.m, and dinner service starts at 4 p.m. Enjoy happy hours every day from 4PM to 6PM. The restaurant is open for dinner during the winter months, but is closed on Tuesdays. If you’d like to make a reservation, give them a call at 207.789.5200.

And, of course, Whale’s Tooth Pub & Restaurant is home to some fantastic live entertainment, like the Rose & The Wayfaring Strangers! Check the Whale’s Tooth Pub & Restaurant website for the latest event information.

Profile:

Local Legend Rosey Gerry

Depending on your individual connection with Rosendel “Rosey” Gerry, you may call him a musician, a historian, a playwright, an actor, a mechanic, selectman, or simply, a local legend and treasure.

"It seems that all my life I've been finding a path or old road that leads to some interesting adventure." Explains Rosey in a recent Free Press article. The Free Press added the monikers “local historian and Renaissance man” and that seems to fit the man to a tee.

Rosey’s family has lived in Lincolnville for generations, but it would be difficult to imagine his ancestors matching his impressive resume. On any given day, you might find him serving as auctioneer at a charitable fundraiser, under the hood at Rosey’s Restorations, playing with his band at the Whale’s Tooth Pub & Restaurant, or speaking on classic car restoration at the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Rosey wrote "Three Weeks & Thirty-one Flats", an “old-fashioned radio play” about the Hardy family of Lincolnville traveling to Florida in their Model T in the winter of 1921. Rosey appeared as a priest in Islander – a gritty movie drama about a Maine island fishing community released in 2007.

Other incarnations of the man include excavator and as an active member of the Lincolnville Board of Selectmen. And, oh yeah, did we mention that Rosey performs vocals and plays the banjo, guitar, and autoharp in local music group, Rose & The Wayfaring Strangers?!

The popular band’s playlist has been described as an eclectic mix ranging from Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Linda Ronstadt to Merle Haggard – with a little bluegrass gospel sprinkled in. In addition to Gerry, the group is composed of Lincolnville local Kim Moran (vocals, flute); Doug Teel of Rockville, Maine, (vocals, guitar); Ron Haven from Appleton, Me. (Bass, vocals); and Linda Stevenson from Warren, Maine on the fiddle and vocals.

If you’d like to see Rosey (the man, the band and the legend) or have him and Rose & The Wayfaring Strangers at your event, contact call him at 207.975.5432 or email roskari@gmail.com for more information on performances and bookings! Rosie appears regularly at the Whale’s Tooth Pub & Restaurant – so be sure check there for upcoming play dates.
