Our Story

The River Drivers Restaurant is an award-winning restaurant on Millinocket Lake with direct views of Mount Katahdin, Maine's highest mountain, and the North Bound End of the Appalachian Trail. The restaurant is family friendly and offers a diverse menu prepared by our chefs in-house and featuring quality American fare highlighted by seasonal, local, and fresh ingredients.

The name "River Drivers" comes from the old days when logs were transported down the river by “river drivers,” who were the men who guided the logs along the waterways. Our whitewater rafting adventures have replaced logging runs and river drives, and more upscale fare has replaced the rustic stews that were once made in the logging camps of Maine.

We host weddings, meetings, and events year-round, and we have lodging right onsite overlooking Millinocket Lake.
