Good lunch

I come here for lunch. You order your food and then sit and wait for your name to be called. Once your name is called you go back and pick up your food. I love the chowders. When busy you have to scope out your seat before meal. (Or I do) there is another side for bakery.

Brown Bag has been crafting great sandwiches that are a cut above for some years now. Check out the daily specials and great menu choices. Order at the counter. Take a seat and listen for you order to be called. This is not fast food, but you'll find that their breads and other ingredients are very fresh and worth the... More

This is a great place to go for a nice lunch. They offer a wide selection and it's always fresh. My favorite is the Thanksgiving turkey sandwich. So delicious!

My wife and I really love to eat at The Brown Bag. The food here is fantastic! Hand carved roast turkey sandwiches on wonderful bread all made in house. Great bakery items! A clean and pleasant restaurant. When sailing or hiking the area we often call ahead for turkey sandwiches to go (earliest pick up around 9:30-10). We always get... More

I've had lunch here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Their home-made breads are superb, and their sandwich board is just incredible. Their bakery is also one of my favorite stops--I'm partial to their large cookies, ANY flavor!

While we did not purchase any sandwiches here we did stop in during the Pie's on Parade this past Sunday and of the more than 20 pie options we tried these (Turkey pot Pie, and Blueberry Pie) were our winners for the day. Both pies were perfectly delicious. Great Job Brown Bag!!!

Had lunch here for the first time and was delighted to see vegetarian choices on the menu. Our sandwiches were done to perfection and quickly. Clean place in a good location, recommend Brown bag! I will be going back for sure!

We recently had a Holiday brunch prepared, plated and delivered by BROWN BAG. The order was somewhat extensive and moderately complicated. We had no complaints . Everything was above our expectations. We definitely will order from them again. Special mention to: lobster salad sandwiches on whole wheat ( lots of lobster, very lightly dressed in mayo) , spinach quiche (... More
