while the people were pleasant and the food came quickly to the table, the food was not really all that delicious. The server was not knowledgable about the menu items and the seafood I had seemed to have been heated up in a microwave. Had heard nice things about the restaurant but didn't see it on this particular visit.

Visiting from Michigan, stopped at this place while passing through when we saw all of the cars parked outside...usually a good sign. Breakfast is our favorite meal to eat out and this place served up one of the best we have ever had anywhere, and we travel extensively. Best and largest three egg omelet of my life. Great breakfast.

Went here only for the blue berry pie as per the locals suggestion and was not disappointed. Brought a pie back for a friend and she raved about how good it was and how amazing the blueberries were.

It had been awhile since we had eaten here. There is not that much to pick from with a major competitor just now rebuilding. Generally they have very good food here but, it seems to have gone downhill. What a shame. The food was way too spicy when it should not have been a spicy dish and the pie was... More

Food, servings and service are good BUT just not quite to the "write home about" level. We went there because the :place across the street burned.

When ever we are in the Macias area this is a go to place. Good food, good service and good atmosphere. Not fancy but a great place for great food at a reasonable price

A typical local restaurant. Decent service and average menu for the area. Save room for pie. I wish they had fewer tv's scattered around. Very distracting to be able to see at least two different programs from any seat in the place.

Ate breakfast and dinner here over the course of three days: Limp salads, weird grapefruit juice, and unmemorable menu. Order local fare when possible. The fish chowder and anadama toast with homemade blueberry jam were excellent!

Great value for the money and the food was very good. Service was great and we would go back. The restaurant is located in the middle of town and was convenient to our motel.

Chowder, cauliflower soup, haddock and fried clams excellent. The coconut cream pie was decadent and the best we've ever had.
