Huge lobster roll!

Stopped for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed their lobster roll! It was stuffed full of fresh lobster with a light covering of what tasted like homemade mayo. I was a little nervous when menu said "market price" but turned out very reasonable. My husband had the lobster stew and steamed clams. Yummy... read more

We were in the area for 2 days on our way back from Nova Scotia. There are 2 places in town, After visiting both we choose Blue Bird. Great atmosphere, wonderful waitress, and most important great food. Note: the cream filled chocolate eclair is to die for!!! It was so rich that it took us 2 days to eat it.... More

so we crossed the street and were treated to a wonderful evening. Food was great, portions were huge and the waitress very friendly and chatty. Highly recommended as a first choice.

We stopped here on a roadtrip up to the boarder and decided to have some lunch. I had the Lobster and my wife had the stuffed Salmon. Both dishes were done very nicely. We finished the meal with wild blueberry pie that was amazing and home made. This is a great family style restaurant.

Best reuben I have ever eaten at lunch. Breakfast is not good, have given it several opportunities. Choose somewhere else.

The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. A causal dining experience. A large selection on the menu with very reasonable prices. Portions were plentiful. The desserts are made on the premises and delicious. A double crust wild blueberry pie is the best..

Typical diner food in a diner atmosphere. The food was fine. The service was fine. If you're just hungry and not concerned with atmosphere this is your place.

We always eat at the Bluebird when we are in Machias, but this time the quality wasn't what we were used to. The fish sandwiches were soggy. The french fries were undercooked and the Spaghetti with sausage and zucchini was not very good, the sausage must have been a mild breakfast sausage, tasted like wax lumps. Sorry, Bluebird.

It was a busy, rainy Sunday night. Menu was extensive but I had the lobster and steak surf n' turf with fries. It was a little slow for me to get my tea refilled and I had to ask for water, but the waitress was very nice offering help if I needed guidance eating the lobster. Food was good. Desserts... More

Arriving on a rainy Sunday night, we figured we'd be lucky to get a decent grilled cheese sandwich. Surprise! This place has a whopping menu, and everything we ate was excellent. That includes chowder, chicken sandwiches, and the roast beef dinner. Our server was also sweet and patient. Three thumbs up.
