Great find and we made dinner just in time from a day of skiing. I had the Mini Plate which was an awesome cup of chowder, lobster roll, cole slaw and hand cut French fries!!! My partner had the Lobster Roll and Gumbo Soup which he loved to! We both had the salad bar too which was a nice addition.... More

This was a regular stop for weekend lunch when my Dad was in the Veteran's Home in South Paris. The steak and cheese sub is fantastic. The service terrific and just a friendly atmosphere. I haven't been in the area since my Dad passed away, but hope to get back over soon.

We stopped here by accident and found this to be one of the best lunch spots on our whole trip. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. The daily special of fried clams was fantastic. My wife had the blueberry pie for dessert...a real hit.

That days it all. Had the clam chowder and lobster roll and they were great. My wife had the New England boil which was corned beef with cabbage beets turnip carrot and potatoes and she absolutely loved it. Large selection on the menu and good service makes this a place you should try.

Absolutely the best clam chowder I have ever eaten. Roch, creamy. Full of clams and potatoes. Perfect bowl of warmth and goodness. Sweet waitress. Young and very earnest.

Fantastic place to meet a friend(s) for an early, unhurried breakfast. I've been more than satisfied with their food offerings, although they could shake up their "specials" to offer more week-to-week variety for their regulars, like me. Prices are well within reason and the staff is friendly and efficient. Breakfast is my favorite dining-out meal so I am not sure... More
