Nice meal & service too

The Fish & chips were very good-a nice serving size of the Haddock. They have several beers on tap for the thirsty traveler. The wait staff were pleasant and friendly.

Well, it was the long weekend, and so we dined at the local restaurant. The other restaurant had just opened its doors, and it was packed, but with that in mind, I thought for sure that the Blue Bird would be bending over backwards to put out a terrific meal, whatever it was that the customer ordered on the menu....

Service was very good, prices were great ($3.50 for a Sam draft), food came out hot. Is it gourmet dining? No, but it certainly is well above average for this type of restaurant.

Finding ourselves in Machias at lunch time means a stop at the Bluebird Ranch. We decided to try the small Pollock lunch. The fish was small but the serving was huge. It was fried perfectly with a great crunchy coating. Delicious white fish. I upgraded for a buck to sweet potato fries and the lunch special came with coleslaw. It... More

We were hoping to eat in Lebuc on the Canadian border but because we are visiting so early in the season nothing was open in Lebuc. We settled on The Blue Bird Ranch on the recommendation of the (American) border guy. The adults and oldest daughter had fried fish, fries, and cole slaw. The portions were great. I should have...

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.
