We loved this place, we had a 30 minute wait but it was worth it! Lobster roll and seafood chowder both excellent! Blueberry pie is homemade and exceptional. Servers were very busy but pleasant. Would definitely visit again!

I've been coming here for years on Maine vacations and it never disappoints! Perfect dinner food and amazing blueberry pancakes and lobster rolls. Eggs Florentine were also perfect. Go hungry and be prepared to wait as there is often a crowd.

We found breakfast to be pretty average. Not bad, but nothing special, as we expected given the hype. No special offerings other than the almond coated French toast. Blueberry pancakes ok, omelet had lots of bacon, but chewy rather than crisp. And the home fries...More

This place is the best. Not fancy, but you aren't going for that. This place offers comfort food for a good price + fast. No waiting around for a million hours. Go at an off time to avoid the crowds. Served with a smile, these...More
