Have had many a breakfast at Grumpys. Always nice to sit out at the waters edge and see the working harbor and all the boats moored. The food was always good, I enjoyed my mushroom and cheddar omelets with home fries, and what toast. Gave...More

Don't bother because grumpy' s was closed all week when we were in southwest harbor. Not on vacation or anything. Locals just said he hadn't been around lately.

If you want to be treated poorly and abused this is the place to go. Chef or Owner said to a member of my group "up until now I haven't hit a woman" As we were leaving he also threatened by saying "I know where...More

Looking for a good breakfast coupled with an awesome view? This is the place! Though understaffed during our visit, our server was efficient, friendly, ( Grumpy must have been off this day) and kept the coffee coming.
