Stopped by for a bite, wife had the cheeseburger (good, not great) and I had a small meat lovers pizza, quite good. Service was slow, but there was just the bartender to tend bar and wait tables. Would return.

Fantastic food, made fresh! Seafood right off the boat, and great service too! Our waitress was wonderful--the dining room and bar were full of local folks catching dinner and watching the Monday night game in the bar too! The fishcakes rivaled my Mother's--no kidding!

Good service, great beer and very tasty food offerings. We, a party of 8 pirates from Nova Scotia, taking part in the Eastport Pirate Festival, had supper on the deck and enjoyed many offerings. A local gentleman recommended the Lobster Mac and Cheese.....yup, and I, being a brave pirate, decided to partake of this offering to rave reviews! Came with... More

There was one waitress for the dining room. Nobody waited on me. I was there 15 minutes. During that time a... More

The food was good, but not inspired or amazing, and the atmosphere is definitely small town diner. The service in the dining area was good, but the noise from the bar carries over, so if you're concerned about colorful language, you should be aware of that. Hubby had the scallop roll, and the scallops were very good. I had the... More

Went here for dinner our first night in eastport. Place is nothing fancy and it did seem like lots of locals. Place was not very crowded and there were 2 servers on, so expected decent service. Food was ok, lobster roll was a bit watery and the bun wasn't grilled and the lobster didn't taste that fresh. Burgers were just... More

Crab cakes and scallops were delicious. Locals eat here as well as tourists. Down home type restaurant, nothing fancy. Also has a small bar area. Reasonably priced

Local place to hang out for a meal, meet the locals and enjoy a drink. Good service and friendly people tend to hang out at this conveniently located spot in Eastport. Maine. There is a deck to enjoy as well as inside bar area and resturant.
