We stopped at the Blue Bird Ranch Restaurant for breakfast to survey the breakfast bar. Despite the usual compliment of eggs, sausage, fruit, I found the selection to be very bread/muffin oriented. The 7.99 price was correct for the huge variety offered. My husband and brother-in-law had the buffet and raved about the bread pudding. They said the buffet was... More

Hubby and I went for my birthday in August. Scallops were juicy sweet and cooked to perfection as were the clams,shrimp and fish.I believe our server was Melissa.Pleasant,attentive ,and made for a wonderful afternoon.Draft beer for a dollar in a frosted mug.And the fresh blueberry pie was excellent. We'll be back.

A good place for when you're hungry. The food is good, though nothing exceptional with overly generous portions. Desserts are huge and look better than they taste, but they're okay. Good service, a full diner-style menu and lots of parking,

We had breakfast here frequently during our two-week stay in the area, and it was always a pleasant experience. Waitresses are friendly and quick to refill coffee cups. The menu has the standard bacon, eggs and french toast offerings, as well as homemade breads and fresh blueberries. We came one evening for dinner and, unfortunately, the experience was dreadful.

This is a place where locals eat, and that is always a good recommendation. It is not a fancy restaurant - just good, "comfort" food. We ate here twice - dinner and breakfast. Dinner was good and our blueberry pie a la mode was excellent. Breakfast was even better. I had blueberry pancakes with wild Maine blueberry sauce and two... More

On the highway from the south, this is the first good looking place, just north of old downtown. Bright, modern, cheery, nothing fancy. Solid American comfort food. Roast beef open face sandwich hearty and large. Service friendly, helpful and prompt.

The service here was s-l-o-w. We ended up getting our own menus. We had fried scallops (soggy), fries (undistinguished), baked haddock (watery, bland), an OK burger that arrived without the lettuce and tomato ordered, a piece of chocolate cream pie that was smothered in some kind of thick artificial topping, was not at all chocolate-y, and was leaking all over...

Helen's across the street has been destroyed by fire, so we went here. There is nothing to write about as everything was poor to average. The headline sums it up.

We were passing through the small, picturesque town of Machias, after visiting the West Quoddy Lighthouse. We saw the Blue Bird Ranch Family Restaurant, and decided to stop for dinner. We had a server named Melissa who was very friendly and helpful. We had the prime rib special, and the baked Haddock. Both were excellent, as was the local family... More
