Helen's Restaurant Machias Maine


“Due to the unfortunate and devastating after-hours restaurant fire of July 11th, Helen’s Restaurant will be closed until approx. spring of 2015. We will post progress updates to our Facebook page once the re-construction begins and welcome your comments and feedback as we watch the new Helen’s Restaurant being built.

During the closure, we will miss our devoted customers, who with each order of deep-fried haddock or slice of blueberry pie, have helped to make Helen’s a Machias landmark. We will also miss our devoted staff members (aka our Helen’s “family”) who have worked so hard to serve you well, and our local suppliers who bring us the fresh seafood, produce, and dairy items featured on Helen’s menu.

It is a difficult time for us, but local folks know how difficult times bring out the true Down East spirit in our community! We will “weather the storm”, knowing that calmer waters and brighter days are ahead. Most of all, we look forward to serving you again soon. Thank you for your kind support.”
