Our boat was at the marina and we were regular costumers for the week. The whole family enjoyed the food. All of the omelettes were fantastic and the eggs Benedict was great. The kids loves the chocked chip pancakes. The corned beef hash is some of the best we ever had. The wait is completely worth it. I recommend trying... More

I have had multiple breakfasts here and have yet to be yelled at! The food is substantial & fresh and the views of the Southwest harbor are some of the best. Watch out for invading seagulls.

I think the place has earned it's fame as it has it's own particular charm. We went for breakfast as we heard it was famous. It was good. We may not go back, but we are happy we tried it.

We so wanted to like Grumpy's but it was below average. The location is nice, the staff is great but the food is just bland and boring. I hope the cook can step it up a bit because it is a great place on the harbour that could do really well.

After reading the reviews, I anticipated it might take awhile to get our food, but WOW did it take long. From the time we ordered until we got our breakfast, it was about 1.5 hours. It wasn't worth the wait. The food was good, but not great. The coffee was terrible. We didn't hear any yelling, but it did seem... More

We are great fans of this restaurant and eat breakfast there very often. The views of the harbor (Southwest) are really lovely, and the food is great (we like especially the eggs benedict). The restaurant is run by local people, and Steven the chef-coowner is a sweet guy. His wife, Stacey, is equally pleasant. This is a place where locals... More

We had breakfast here one morning around 10:30 and the wait was HORRIBLE! The morning rush should have been hours before. There were four tables ahead of us (and they looked like they had been waiting a while) and we were told there would be a 10 minute wait before they can get to us. It was another 45 minutes... More

Grumpy's is located dock side, in walking distance (10-12 minutes) from Southwest Harbor, ME. We enjoyed breakfast on our last day of vacation and the restaurant consists of inside and outside tables & chairs, at least on a good weather day. We brought our dog and observed very friendly staff...one brought water (and ice) to our pooch! We were informed... More

Our breakfast was so bad, we couldn't eat it. This was after a 30 minute wait, with no one letting us know what was going on. We've eaten here in the past and thought that the breakfast is really ok - but this summer it seems to really be loosing it. While we waited, several people were going up to... More

We found Grumpys by accident, when killing time waiting for the Swans Island Ferry. The omelet was the best I ever had, with mushrooms and cheddar. The homemade thick slice wheat toast was incredible. I could have eaten 10 slices. My wife had the French toast, and loved it. The potatoes were super, the coffee awesome. Nothing but good food,...
