The "go to" place when you just want to grab a bite.

Good variety, delicious food, the pizza and the salads are my favorite, but there is a many other wonderful choices. The restaurant is in a lovely old mansion in the beautiful coastal town of Blue Hill!

Noisy, awful food, service ok. Menu appealing but the food was poorly cooked, flavorless. The lighting was odd.

The food is cooked in a wood fired oven, so a lot of the food gets burnt. Food is not ever cooked the same if you Order the same thing.

The mystique of this place is worth the visit alone! However, the food is excellent and the place is definitely worth a visit. Service was a little slow, however I found that was typical all across Maine, at least the places that we visited while on vacation.

Pizza is the item to order here. We had a sausage, black olive, mushroom and onion pizza and it was very good. I have eaten here before and their pizza quality has improved exponentially. Pleasant wait staff and good wine by the glass.

Pizza comes in many ways, the ribs came badly. I ordered ribs - I should have know better but the limited menu, and my taste buds had ODEED on pizza. This time I went for the ribs which were a poor choice. Sauce was out of bottle, ribs were out of the freezer, I think. Twice baked potato was loaded... More

This is a very good restaurant in Blue Hill, very convenient with a very diverse menu. The night I ate there recently, we sat outside and it was quite pleasant, but for a few mosquitoes. I had vegetarian chili inside of a baked potato which was very good as well as different! This restaurant is always good about larger parties,... More

Enjoyed a delicious Spinach & Goat Cheese Salad with carrot vinaigrette, pine nuts and apricots. We travel a lot and this was the first time I'd had a pizza with grilled fiddleheads (seasonal) and lemon-herbed goat cheese. It was one of those meals that you close your eyes and smile after each bite. My husband had a wonderful meat-loaded calzone.... More
