We ordered off the menu instead of going with the breakfast buffet. Meals were very good in taste and proportion. Server was a bit slow but not too bad. Definitely would go again.

From seafood, to burgers, decent. But check out the baked goods, looked amazing. A few vegetarian options. Salads mostly.

How difficult is it to bring me a club soda, NO ICE, with a wedge of lemon or lime? Evidently, very difficult. Hate ice is all I can say. Ordered the pork tenderloin with onion and bacon marmalade - very good, except for the overcooked, gray Brussels Sprouts! Mashed potato with a well of gravy was not too impressive either.... More

This restaurant seemed to be run and staffed by people who hated it. We stood at the waitress stand for probably 15 minutes while people kept walking by and trying not to make eye contact. We stood there while everyone was called to sing a lame Happy Birthday to someone. The manager never looked at us. I watched a waitress... More

Didn't expect much at this non-descript diner off the turnpike with a near empty parking lot at lunchtime but I had to eat. This was my first meal in Maine and I told the waitress I wanted it to be a good one so she suggested the Scallop special, $12.99. A little hesitant but when it arrived, they were the... More

The waitress was friendly, the atmosphere was very dull, not inviting at all. The food was blah, not good.

My wife and I go here for the cinnamon rolls every time we make it to Maine, which is only once every couple of years. They used to be the size of a salad plate. Now they're the size of a dinner plate!!! And they are awesome. The food is nothing super special. It's good but not great, but the... More
