I stopped in for breakfast. The food was tasty. The waitress called me, "Hun." What's not to like.

Every so often I go out for breakfast. I usually go to one of two other places. This morning I was coming up to the cafe. There was a parking spot right in front. I took that as a sign that I should try it out for breakfast. Seat yourself anywhere there's a spot for you. The waitress came... read more

We go here often and I'm sorry I haven't reviewed before. This is your basic diner. I've always found the staff engaging and friendly. They have a varied menu with lots of specials going on all the time also.The food is delicious and always plenty of it on a plate. We've been coming here for years and it is always... More

The hotel desk clerk recommended Rockland Café for a fresh on the coast of maine lobster roll. The small café is easy to find, but parking is difficult to attain. The café was not busy, had appx 15 tables but I was ordering takeout. I ordered a lobster roll with no mayonnaise....clear meat, not an unreasonable offer...I was told that... More

It’s a diner. Seat yourself at a clean table, the menus are already there. Service is efficient, if not always engagingly friendly. Sometimes they’re busy, and just don’t chat, but get right to business - “Did you figure out what you want?” Don’t take it personally, they’ll take good care of you. A broad mix of good home-cooked food. I... More

We stopped here on our way to our accommodation at Bay Leaf Cottage in Lincolnville. We both had fish which was succulent and very fresh and lovely crispy chips washed down by a bottle of blueberry soda. Always a busy place which is quite understandable as it is the perfect small town café.

I've eaten at all kinds of restaurants throughout the U.S., but I have to say that the Rockland Café is one of my all-time favorites. The menu is gigantic, filled with all kinds of choices. They're best-known for anything pertaining to seafood. One of my favorites is a large bowl of their Seafood Chowder. It has the right consistency and... More

May have once been good but our experience was mediocre. This is an old style diner with diner food. Better food at similar prices elsewhere. The lobster stew was runny, the fish cake a limp frisbee. If you must go there order the fresh fish broiled.

Good food - I had the fried haddock sandwich and fries. Slaw was good (no onion). Wife had the fried shrimp. Fish portions were very large but by piling them on the fries, the fries were soaked in grease and soggy. Not the best but OK
