Went in; looked around -left. Did not stay for dinner as the place was a cold and noisy bar/restaurant.

We enjoyed a late dinner at this old fashioned diner. Friendly staff, good service and very good food! We were able to walk there from our motel, which was nice to do after a full day of riding in the car.

We rode our motorcycle over from Bar Harbor and this was the perfect place. The fish sandwiches were great and so were the fries. We just wished we'd had a little more slaw, it was good but not enough. Service was very friendly even though...More
