There was a time when this restaurant served a healthy serving of great food at a good price, they have continually expanded and can now seat a couple hundred people by my estimate. The problem is now the food is mediocre and way overpriced for what you get, thank goodness the breakfast is still good but it is expensive. At... More

Hi Phillip: Thanks for the feedback. We work very hard trying to balance our traditional menu items and new trends, so yes, change is inevitable. And yes, the cost of business is significantly more in 2016 than it was in the previous 57 years we've been around, so prices are bound to increase. That being said, we want to make... More

If your idea of a great meal is simple cooking and large quantities, you'll be happy here. Open for 3 meals a day, lots of desserts and home-cooking style choices.

Good-Average comfort type food. They do serve large portions of it. The reason to stop by here is to get dessert. The cakes and pies are awesome, and they make real good (and large) whoopie pies.

I've had varied experiences here. They have a great (and cheap) breakfast... I also love the kettle chips that come on the side of many entrees

Just a great breakfast stop when in town visiting with family at Umaine. Wait was normal for a busy a Sunday. Food was really good, service was good. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area who wants local flavor and not cookie cutter franchise places

We stopped in for lunch on a dreary rainy Sunday. The place was full. We ordered Ziti and a burger. The wait was a little long but our waitress was so pleasant and assured us that we weren't forgotten. The coffee is great, smooth and pungent. Our food was very good and a perfect meal on a cold, rainy day.... More

Nice selection of food, pumpkin pancakes were excellent, service (cook) was a little slow with food taking 25 to 30 minutes to serve except for the omelettes which they do faster. Sides were incorrect at times.

This was the last remaining Governor's I hadn't been to and was not disappointed. We both got fried seafood that was crunchy, tasty and a good portion. Their rolls are delicious as well as the onion rings. Topped everything off with a large piece of chocolate peanut butter cake, oh yeah! You can't go wrong here

Thank Snonut800
