When I asked for restaurant recommendations for lunch, everyone at the front desk at my hotel said The Blue Hen. Yes, it may seem off the beaten path, and it's nothing to look at from the outside or inside, don't pass judgement so fast. The people are friendly. The food couldn't be any fresher or more delicious. And the place... More

Adorable little restaurant, friendly and attentive staff. Food tastes fresh and perfectly seasoned. Great mix of choices on the menu, something for everyone. Veggie omlette and sweet potato homefries were divine. Four in our party, everyone left fat and happy. Appreciated the reasonable prices in this tourist town.

This cute, local food restaurant is a real gem deep in the heart of the Lincolnville neighborhood. The food is fresh and delicious and they even make coffee ice cubes for iced coffee! My favorites are the Fried Green Tomato tacos and Baja Fish Sandwich! Don't tell your friends though because its already difficult to get a table!

This restaurant is small and a little hard to find, but sure worth the effort to locate. We arrived at 7:45 on Sunday morning (prior to opening) and sure enough to what other reviewers indicated, a line of customers filed in behind us. The biscuits with peach butter are to die for. The corned beef hash and eggs were wonderful.... More

We found this place online; it's a little bit off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood and very much worth the trip. Very sweet dining space with warm lighting and excellent service. We went on a Friday morning and got seated right away; went back Sunday morning and the place was mobbed, so be warned. I had scrambled eggs... More
