Great service by our waitress on Sunday afternoon January 21, 2018. The fried scallops, clams, and lobster stew was to die for. Definitely will be back on my next trip from New Jersey.

On our recent trip to Maine we ate at Governor's twice, lunch on the way to Acadia and breakfast at the one in Old Town. Food is decent, pricing is good. Not bad for a diner type place.

A basic restaurant with appropriate quality for the price. I wouldn't say this is very good but certainly hits the spot if you need a good, quick bite. Service was good.
