Good house cooking, just like at grandma. The chowder is very good and chunky. The restaurant It needs a little cleanup. Very small seating area, not for large group or person. It is a charming little place, Julia Child's type. It's our 3rd visit but the 1st time we get a chance to come in. I suggest you go early... More

I didn't have breakfast, but we tried the lunch. My recommendation would be to skip lunch and eat dessert. The peach cobbler is to die for and the blueberry pie is delicious, too. My family members kept returning there, also choosing to eat dessert rather than the full meal.

During our week's vacation in Boothbay Harbor, we had breakfast here twice and dinner once. We loved breakfast here, and the cinnamon rolls are so good! I had the ham & swiss omelet; it was delicious! The waitresses are great and my coffee cup was never empty. I recommend this place for a great breakfast. And their chowder is terrific,... More

We had a nice lunch before our boat trip - my sandwich was your typical fish sandwich but tasted fresh. My sister-in-law had an omelette that she was not happy with, and my mother-in-law loved her French toast. I've been to the Ebb Tide before, and it's always place you can count on for a good meal.

Open at 7 am with about a half dozen locals soon seated. Three egg ham and cheese omelet was very good with big chunks of ham and just the right amount of swiss cheese. Eggs cooked right. Blueberry muffin also very good. Bottomless coffee promptly refilled and friendly waitstaff. Prices reasonable. What more can you ask for breakfast?

We just stopped in for pie and coffee, the blueberry pie was delicious. Wish we had had time to return to sample others, the coffee cream looked amazing, and the ladies at Capers told us the peach shortcake is legendary! Excellent stop, old wooden booths looking out over the street, lots of fun, and good service!

Standard diner restaurant type fair. We had 1 meal here during our week stay in Boothbay. Wife had a breakfast and I did a lunch. Pancakes wife had were good, but the hamburger I had was a greasy and most likely came from the freezer. The place just seems a little lackluster
