While I like the cozy feel of the wood interior and high-backed booths, the food is so totally bland and unspecial, it's just not a destination place.

We discovered this place as we were driving through rural Maine. The décor is rustic, neat as a pin and very clean. Our food was judged to be very good and served in ample portions. Our server was friendly and helpful, but appeared to be working alone with about 8 filled tables. In all fairness, we arrived about 4 PM... More

We were a party of 5 and we all had something different. Haddock, meat loaf, lasagna, club sandwich, stuffed mushrooms and a burger. No complaints at all. The waiter was very attentive and we all enjoyed our food. Good large portions too! . Great family friendly atmosphere!

Everyone raves about the food here but it's been awful every time I've been dragged here. I think it's over priced and the food tastes awful.

WE rode out here for lunch yesterday on motorcycle to have lunch. We have eaten here several times before. Food has always been pretty good, but hit and miss with service. We have had very good and few times very bad. I would suggest going here as the food far outweighs the service. It is out away from other things... More

Ended up at this place on a total whim. Was driving up from jersey to visit family and had to stop at a convenience store because I forgot my toothbrush. Asked the lady where a good spot to eat was and she directed me here. Glad she did! The food is amazing here and the portions were huge and reasonably... More
