An excellent breakfast and lunch value in Camden. You can sit on the back deck and enjoy a stunning view of Camden harbor. If like many you're on the quest for the best lobster roll in the area.....go no further. Without a doubt, the best value to be found in Maine.

Eh. We were looking for something a litte more upscale but ended up being served food that reminded us of a old school diner. Very friendly waitress, but our meals could have used a upgrade. We will try it again before knocking it off our list completely next time we visit. It could have just been an off day. (We... More

Quintessential New England restaurant. Breakfasts and lunches are old-fashioned with typical seafood additions. Nothing terribly fancy, but all comfort foods. Wait staff is always kind and friendly. In the nice weather, there are lots of tables outside on a deck overlooking Camden Harbor. In inclement weather, you can still face the window for a terrific view. I've come here many... More

The haddock chowder is very good...lots of big chunks of tasty haddock in a milk broth ( as opposed to a thick cream base ). Nothing to detract from the taste of the fish, an excellent chowder. Wish I lived closer so I could get it more often! The cup-sized serving was filling and it left room for a piece... More

You know it's a good place when, in the middle of your second forkful, you are planning what you'll have the next time you come here.....and how soon you can make it. The breakfast is terrific and the service is friendly and efficient. Homemade grilled muffins....outstanding. We may be back tomorrow (closed on Tuesdays). The restaurant sign said it's been...

Down home quality and value. Everything.....yes.....everything is very good and an amazing approach. Worth a first visit and then another and another. Staff is perfect for the place. Flocks of locals and other travelers. DO GO or cheat yourselves.

Great spot. The eggs were fried crispy on one side but still overseasy. I asked for a grilled blueberry muffin on the side and was able to substitute it for the home fries! Who does that anymore. Excellent service.

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. Prices were reasonable, coffee was good, and we really enjoyed our fried haddock & scrambled eggs -- and cheese & veggie omelette. And, we got to look out at the marina. Service was attentive and friendly. We'll return.

We've been eating at The Mariner for over 37 years whenever we are in or near Camden...need i say more. Be sure to order the Blueberry Pancakes with real maple syrup or the blueberry muffins. You can be confident that whatever you order will be unpretentious fresh, flavorfull and well prepared. The staff is consistently friendly, attentive and totally professional... More
