Friends took me to the Roundabout before golf and I ha such a great breakfast - scramble eggs, bacon, home fries and a pancake. The menu options were enormous. I’ll be back as soon as golf returns to the Seacoast🏌️‍♀️

From the bloody marys to the Grand Marnier French toast you can't go wrong. They are very accommodating to larger groups and separate checks.

Description
At the Roundabout Diner and Lounge, we serve breakfast all day, great burgers and sandwiches, Phantom Gourmet award-winning BBQ, comfort food classics like meatloaf, roast turkey, and of course, local New England favorites like fish and chips, and the best lobster roll around. We also use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, like bread baked just for us by When Pigs Fly Bakery, breakfast sausage made for us in Vermont, local cheeses, and more. And we make all our delicious cakes and pies right here at the Roundabout. From scratch! If you would like us to cater one of your events then look no further than Chill Catering, one of the largest catering companies on the seacoast.
