Doc Grant's Restaurant, Rangeley, Maine

Doc Grants

For many years "Doc" Grant's Restaurant was a well-known and well-loved local landmark in Rangeley, Maine. The restaurant was proud of its location in the happy middle betwixt geographic extremes, and featured a mural of a tropical hula-dancing girl beside a fur-suited Eskimo lass, with a comfortable space between. But truthfully "Doc" Grant's is located a little south of the 45th Parallel, and south of the real halfway point between the Equator and the Pole.

Sadly, the restaurant is no longer open.
