Spent half a day on planes and automobile and just wanted some place near where we were staying for lunch. Portion sizes were bigger than expected and should not have ordered appetizers as we were almost full before lunch arrived. Scallops were very good and I was surprised that the meat did not toughen up as they were fried. My kids had the lobster stew and salmon and both of them enjoyed their meals.

Great little place for breakfast!
Timmy our server was very welcoming, offered suggestions.
Had the Governors Breakfast special $4.00 and thanks to the recommendation got the free upgrade of repurposed baked potatoes from the day before as hash brown potatoes with onions.
Breakfast was quick and good.
Cute place with a electric train going around the perimeter of the restaurant.
Bought 2 peanut butter cookies on the way out as well.
Breakfast for 2 under $10. What a bargain!

Thank Jane G

Reminded me of the old Howard Johnsons restaurants when I was a kid. Don’t expect a fine dining experience, it sort of an upscale diner menu. Allison was our server and she was very nice, taking the time to joke around and make our visit quite enjoyable. Food was good and inexpensive. I would recommend it for a quick lunch of light dinner.

Excellent service and food!
My husband and I had our first Maine lobster roll and it was fantastic.
Also had a caesar salad which was great!
For dessert we had what they call the nightmare- 2 brownies with peanut butter! Rich and Scrumptious !
