Really good food at fair prices

We stopped here on two occasions for a late lunch and left happy both times. The steamers are terrific. Tender, large, flavorful and little grit. Their crab sandwich, full belly fried clams, and fish cakes are also recommended. The fish cakes had a bit too much filler but were very... read more

The food was edible, but that's really all I can say about it. The Lobster roll was underwhelming at best.

Fabulous breakfast. Old-timer waitress, kind, efficient, motherly. Delicious food, served quickly. Kitchen right out in the open, everything obviously homemade with good local food. Would definitely return.

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 right... 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.
