Located in cozy downtown Cornish Village Maine

We feel that going out for a meal is more than just what's on the plate… it’s the the river off the back dining room, the hibiscus blooming on the patio, the funky women’s room, the little toy soldier hanging in a plant, the groovy green doors, and obviously, it's one-armed Godzilla keeping watch… but mostly, it’s a staff that understands our mission, is invested in it....and executes it so well.   Our amazing crew is a giant part of what keeps customers coming back, and in turn, those customers introducing their own family and friends to our restaurant family and to what we have here in Cornish. Come visit us and make sure you tell us why you came and how you enjoyed yourself!

we have a pretty darn cool community...
and by community we mean our team at krista's...
AND the customers that have helped us become who we are
please have a look through the following gallery to
spy crew, customers, friends & family

we have all evolved quite a bit since day one in 2004...we've learned how to be better bosses, better
workmates and better leaders. some of us, like krista and tammy, have been doing this together since the
very beginning, others came later, but all of our crew has a key role to play. besides getting your
dinner out on a saturday night, that role is being part of a family.
sure, we can be dysfunction junction like most families....
but at the end of a long hot day, we love and respect each other...
and then we often go on vacation together!

 Krista grew up in a restaurant family, and couldn't escape from its evil and alluring clutches...and here we are!! feel free to smack her parental units around or thank them for working their tails off during every renovation project and being stubborn enough to give her mostly good advice!  krista's started on a bit of a whim in 2004 but in 2006 we bought the little crooked building by the river where we are now and grew krista's into something more than a whim. when she's not making desserts and pastries, working on the line, running around putting out fires, meeting with staff, or feeling insanely proud of her team, you'll find her home with her dogs, in her garden, chicken watching or maybe, if the waves are working... trying to surf

 Tammy McNeil is our front of the house goddess and general manager. she's a master at manipulating schedules, has the patience of a saint and is considered the queen mother at krista's. not only is she a top notch server and loved by all her customers, she's also loved by her crew. Tam has been at Krista's side since before day one and krista's the restaurant would not have survived without her taking over many aspects of life here. so please give her some love next time you see her! when she's not organizing the krista's universe or krista herself, or being our main support human, you might find her driving any number of teenagers around, organizing the shebarge, having a bevie on the mountain or basking in the sun somewhere getting even more gorgeous than yesterday

 Chef Mike is our back of the house master that joined the krista's family in 2011. since then he and the rest of us have never looked back. thankfully for all of us, he attended Johnson & Wales and worked in a variety of restaurants in Boston & throughout New England...and consequently knows what he's doing which is amazing for all of us! Chef helped shift krista's to a different level with new menu items, wide use of local produce and meats... and of course the amazing dinner specials you are all familiar with. when he's not in his basement den of creativity at krista's or working the line, he's home with his family, doing home renovations or out in his kayak, in a secret fishing spot torturing Chase, Marston and Ken with pictures of prize winning fish

 Lisa Pyburn is our office manager, keeper of all things important, organizer of krista's disorder and voice of reason and calm in all things. she came to us close to the beginning as a line cook and stayed until krista tortured her with too many hectic breakfast shifts. luckily, she still loved us and came back later to be our lunch lady and took on the office, which changed all of our lives for the better. when she's not sequestered to the office making sure all is right with our world or cooking your lunch, she can be found on her farm, raising sheep, throwing hay bales, riding her dearly loved horses and having an occasional G&T with her amazing man on the porch swing
