We liked the salad bar which the Maine coast seems to have little of. The service was slow and the waitstaff were too. I'm sure 'fried' would have been good here but do not get the 'broiled'. It has a boiled look and very bland. The place has the comforting look of an established town restaurant but we wouldn't try... More

Closing time was 1/2 hour away, and the place was emptying out. That can be a recipe for a bad experience, but it was not so. 4 diners and 4 very different items. From the "market price" clams, to the sirloin tips, scallops, and lobster pasta, all of our party dug in and enjoyed their meal. Even in lieu of... More

My wife had the shrimp dinner with salad bar. The salad bar was not the best we have ever eaten and her shrimp meat in the tail fell apart in her hands. She told me it was the worst lobster she has had. I had shrimp over rice pilaf, with mushrooms. No one told me the rice pilaf had red... More

We dine at this restaurant everytime we go to Glen Cove. Must try the Lemon Lust Pie. The food is excellent. If you are looking for good food in a casual setting this is your place.

Liked the salad bar. Service and food were good. Not fancy but a good value. Very close to the Island View where we were staying.

We were driving down Route 1 and my husband noticed that this place had quite a few cars in the parking lot. The restaurant looks pretty run down, so we figured the food had to be good! It was excellent! My daughter and I both had the stuffed lobster and it was the best I've ever had! Everything was fresh... More

We stopped in here for lunch on a busy day but should have kept going. The salad was OK but the cheddar beer soup was greasy and tasteless and the hot turkey sandwich meat dried out. There are too many good restaurants in the area to put up with stuff like this.

We didn't actually go here in 2014, but the review site won't let me select anything further back than Aug. 2013. We were here in 2011. It is the only restaurant I've ever been in that totally ruined a green salad. How hard is it to make a decent salad? The food overall was sad and the restaurant was dirty.
