A great breakfast

Without a doubt this is the best place in Eastport for breakfast. From the usual eggs, ham, bacon, etc. you can order the smoked salmon, eggs benedict or the veggie benedict. There's daily breakfast specials and the service is excellent.

Used to dine her back in the 80s with friends, and I don't think it's changed one bit with the exception of the addition on the back. Best fish sandwich ANYWHERE!

A reminder of old Maine,where the community comes together to talk and eat,where visitors are made to feel welcome. The food is great, the staff is amazing. This restaurant is a jewel.

This is supposedly the oldest diner in Maine (at least according to the t- shirt the waitress had on.) Lots of character with a diner style bar and stools in front and a real bar in the back. Serviceable place filled with locals, always a good sign. We sat on the patio and ordered a cheeseburger and the Cajun haddock... More

When you enter, the setting is a typical diner, with counter and a few booths. However, there is a dining room in back with a lovely view of the water as well as outside seating on a deck. The prices are very reasonable, we ordered the lunch special consisting of fish chowder, seafood roll and coleslaw for $8.95. The chowder... More

Traditional diner with all the things you expect. Not fancy, but good service. The best place for a full breakfast.

This used to be a great place to eat, but the restaurant itself seems to have gone downhill...it does not have the appearance of being clean inside. It is terribly outdated and needs big-time renovations. The food is okay, but over priced for the ordinary fare the restaurant offers...nothing on the menu considered spectacular...the visit last summer was not our... More

This restaurant is only at best fair. The food is average diner food, the wait staff is usually okay, but the building is not very clean. I think a makeover is in need. I used to come here all the time just for the lobster rolls, but they are just not as good as they used to be. On the... More

Eat only seafood or breakfast items here. This is the first time we've returned since new ownership (gentleman is from Rhode Island). We were looking forward to eating in the rear dining room because it formerly was always too chilly there once the weather moved from summer to fall. Our waitress was very, very good & busy, but always attentive.... More

My hamburger was perfect. The fries were excellent. The fish chowder was a good as my grandmother used to make. The dinner has unusual... More
