It's good

I have never heard,of a food place opening at 10:30a.m. but it is what it is.. I recommend the stuffed halibut on weekends, but get there early , they are usually sold out after the church crowd. Pleasant staff, prices are ok. But as everything else prices have jumped, so has the seafood in Maine.

Large place filled with locals, travelers and old folk. We went for breakfast on a Saturday, but did not have the breakfast buffet. Food was as expected. The biscuit was good, as was the muffin. The waitress was very nice and kept our coffee hot. Nothing special, but inexpensive for breakfast.

Buffet breakfast on Sunday, only 1 waitress at 7:30 (opens at 7), powdered eggs for scrambled eggs, food was cold, juice is watered down, sausage gravy was nothing I have ever seen before and did not taste or look like sausage in it. No seasonings, and more pastry then anything. Just keep driving not worth the money or the time... More

My family always stops here on the way up to my grandparents place. I can't say i've ever had a bad experience. Chicken is to die for and everyone is super friendly and attentive. I hope you have as an amazing meal as we've had for generations!

Very nice atmosphere and great food. Large portions and tasty! We got the "monster" with fried clams (whole and strips), shrimp, bay scallops, pollack and haddock. It was a jumbo overflowing plate of seafood. It came with 2 sides of which there was a lot to choose from. We got a large salad and order of onion rings. Two of... More

Excellent lobster rolls. Efficient service. Very good honey wheat bread while you wait for your entrée. We couldn't have been more pleased. Easy to see why the wall is lined with recognition plaques.

WE stop here often on our way to camp. Breakfast buffet is good with fresh omelet's, and the fried chicken is a local favorite. Service is good and friendly. For a home cooked comfort food stop in and fill up.

We stopped in for dinner on our way home. Had eaten here years ago. Had a great meal - place was full but didn't have to wait for a table. Had a great waitress too. Two adults and a teen could eat for $52 with tax. We started with their fresh honey wheat bread (very tasty) and also started with... More

Looking for a restaurant for a hot meal during a trip, I found online reviews of Ken's and it looked like it would be a good choice (out of the limited choices in the area). Unfortunately I found poor service (very unfriendly waitress who did her best to ignore a woman traveling alone) and fried seafood that was inedible (breading... More
