Well I guess if you like really slow service and food out of the microwave then you don't want to miss this place. I did like the chicken fingers when I got them everything else seemed out of the microwave. Mashed potatoes severed in a separate container and they were cold kind of points to it.

I was disappointed with the food. It was not that good, especially for the price. Also, note that if you're a group of 6 persons and more, you'll be charged with a 20% tax. It's a lot.

We've been coming to Old Orchard for over 30 years and finally decided to try this restaurant. The food was very good, as was the service. They have a three course special for $19.95 and it's well worth it. There are many appetizers and entrees to choose from. You also have a choice of a garden or Caesar salad. My... More

We were surprised to find such a homey bar so close to the tourist attractions of Old Orchard Beach. Great bunch of locals made us very welcome. Good bar food.

My wife and I rolled into OOB on a rainy, gloomy, unbeachable afternoon with our 3-year-old, 5-week-old, and my mother. Looking around at our dinner options, we went with the nearest indoor option: the Bell Bouy, an unassuming restaurant with low grade furniture and beach-tacky decorations. We were not expecting much — just sustenance. An hour and a half later,... More
