We've been popping in here for breakfast or lunch for quite a few years. We've always been warmly greeted by the servers who don't make you feel any different from the locals. I suddenly realized that after all these years, I've never written a review for the Southgate. The breakfasts are good and straightforward. They also offer specials. We have... More

Went for breakfast when in Bath a couple of weeks ago. Service was fast! Breakfast choices excellent! Coffee hot and filled without requesting. Wait staff could not have been more accommodating! All in all a very nice experience. Good food! Reasonably priced! I'd definitely go back again!

I love this restaurant! My family comes here all the time! We have never eaten lunch here but the breakfast I can honestly say is to die for! They have a great menu and the prices are great also! The atmosphere is friendly and you feel welcomed by both the staff and those eating there! Our family always go out... More

Not often do you have the opportunity to eat so locally! The building use to be a house. It sits across from Bath Iron Works. They serve 2 breakfasts and 2 lunch. Walkins can come anytime. I had the Veggie Melt and Clam Chowder. The Sandwich was delicious and the chowder had lots of chopped clams. My husband enjoyed his... More

To be honest its just ok food. Nothing to complain about, and the prices are right. What makes this place special is the local color: the proximity to a place that actually makes something in America (the shipyard), the retirees that used to make the ships (presumably since most of them have bullet proof ball caps), and the waitresses. When... More

This is a good place to start your day. The food is good and reasonably priced. It's also kid friendly with baskets of toys to keep them entertained while you wait. On occasion be prepared to wait as the place fills up fast. The place has tables that can be put together for groups up to 8.

This is a local restaurant across the street from the Bath Iron works and Shipyard. Great home cooked fare with very reasonable prices. Just don't get caught in the Lunch crowd from the Iron works and shipyard.

They say it is the best breakfast in town some may say that but... everything tastes the same from Breakfast to Lunch menu. Greasy food runs off your plate. We are locals we used to go many times a week not anymore.

Simple, yet delicious breakfast place. Nice staff and excellent American breakfast. Nothing fancy. "Best Breakfast in Town."
