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.

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."

Great spot for breakfast and lunch. Had a sample breakfast and everything was good. Saw lunch item go by our and they too looked good. If you are in the mood for a local, no frills breakfast and lunch spot with the good food and reasonable prices then stop here. There is a reason it is always busy.

The breakfast is always really good and the portions are huge, but I feel that it's more of a locals spot. Every time we go we watch the wait staff set, pour coffee and bring food over to tables that have no one sitting at them just to have it ready before the people even get there! Now that's commitment... More

Found this great place will on week long training in the Bath area The food was great and the portions large with service that was friendly . If you get there early you will be treated to some local folks with a fun sence of humor and a love of life.
