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).

Went to Grumpy's for breakfast. Were told that the wait for food coming out of the kitchen was 30 to 45 minutes. Not all the tables were occupied, so why so long to serve food. The waitress that waited on us was very nice and tried to be as helpful as possible based on the circumstances. One couple that had... More

We were looking for somewhere for breakfast since our campsite had been too rained out to cook anything. We saw the breakfast sign and decided to try. It was a cute little place with a nice view of the bay. We ordered pretty simple breakfast items but the wait was very long. I feel like I could cook for that... More

Normally, I only write about establishments that I've enjoyed and want to share with others. In this case, I'm making an exception because Grumpy's has the most negative vibe -- never mind the longest wait to be served -- of any restaurant I've ever patronized. The cook/owner is loud and abusive to his server staff, so much so that much... More
