Stopped here on our way to the Maine Maritime Museum. It was the closest restaurant we could find just down the street. It's located across from the Iron Works factory so lots of employees eating here. It's a small place so we had to wait...More

Really more of a diner, with homemade foods, friendly staff, excellent coffee, my husband loves their omelettes and homefries. I love the hash and homemade muffins.

The menu is full of interesting omelets and eggs Benedict of several kinds. We also had a special called "mom's good kinda eggs" which was delicious. Friendly service too. We will be back next visit to Bath. Great breakfast!

Right outside the South Gate of Bath Ironworks. Breakfast early and open the day. Short order breakfast and lunch. Soups, especially Chili, and Tuna sandwiches are great. Servers very good and friendly. Enjoy a bite with the folks who build the fleet that protects us!

This is a popular spot with the locals and is open for breakfast and lunch. Typical diner food, good, but nothing special.

Food was average and service was good. The restaurant's decor was a bit run down. Could benefit to freshen up furniture. I think that's why there aren't any pictures of inside except for sign.
