Had breakfast at Grumpy's. Very clean and the waitresses were wonderful ! However, grumpy lives up to his name!

I apologized to the waitress and she apologized to grumpy for me. People walking in looked... More

Diner style food served while overlooking the bay. The view is fantastic, but it took 50 minutes to get our overpriced bacon and eggs, which didn't even taste all that great. Wasn't horrible, just didn't have a ton of flavor. Also, the owner is truly grumpy...seems to be truly miserable there. However, the waitress was very nice and apologetic for... More

Had a delicious breakfast and enjoyable visit to Breakfast at Grumpy's. We were there off season, so there was no wait. Everyone in my family ordered a different breakfast and all were good. Pay the extra dollar for the homemade toast it is well worth it.

We've been numerous times but finally gave up on this place. The owner is not grumpy he is mean and abusive to the staff and customers on almost all occasions. The last time we were there while enduring the usual hour wait for food, the owner/cook was screaming the entire time, throwing things in the kitchen and in a rage... More

Since Grumpy's is not open this time of year we were not able to eat here but I saw the chance to review them and have to put my two cents in; all I can say is EXCELLENT. This is our favorite place to have breakfast when we are in Southwest harbor..

If you want uncomplicated, basic and good food then this is the place. And when the cook starts to sing with the radio just cover your ears 'cause it's not pretty (but you'll get a really good laugh out of it).
