Had their clams and haddock fry... excellent and had two more meals from the take home. The best deal for the price. I really suggest that everyone try this and the rest of the great food on the menu.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch on our trip to Boothbay Harbor and loved it! My parents used to go there for a meal when they used to vacation up there because it was right next to their hotel so we wanted to try it. It doesn't look like much, but it has a nice hometown diner... More

This "restaurant" was in the parking lot of my motel, so I thought I'd give it a try. There was an overwhelming odor of grease when I walked in, and I waited 5 minutes before finally seating myself in the bar. I'm fairly certain my bartender forgot the gin in my G&T, and the "rib eye" I ordered was most... More

I hear this place has amazing chowder and he has won awards for it. We got the fish chowder. It appears they have a base chowder and add the fish or clams or what have you to it. The base was thin which Im not used to. The fish was abundant but it was large pieces that were definately added... More

I ordered Chicken Piccata with carrots on the side, and hubby ordered Chicken Marsala. Orders finally came, and my chicken was so salty and had about 3 tablespoons of capers that I couldn't even eat half of it. The carrots were nothing more than steamed minis with no seasoning or butter. Neither of us were offered refills on drinks, and... More

If you are looking for a great tasting dessert try Mr. C's Decadent Chocolate Cake. Melts in your mouth.

With imagination and creativity this place could be super! Great location next to a motel. The food we had, but didn't eat all of, wasn't the best. Poorly prepared and no "extras." Seems like someone is trying to cater to locals and not do a really great job, just enough to get by. Waitstaff didn't seem very happy, just going... More

I really hate writing this review, but, the last few times we ate here the food was just so-so. Undercooked and overcooked hamburgers. Chicken you couldn't cut or eat. Wake up ... bring the food back to the high standards you had when you first opened.
