Lunch time on Deer Island, Maine and we were ready for a good meal, we were not disappointed. With windows facing the working harbor and lots of folks eating and enjoying the moment. My fish and chips consisted of real haddock, hot fries (not greasy or too salty) and coleslaw. My wife had a special lobster roll to her satisfaction.... More

While the breakfast was average, because the omelet was cooked to where the eggs were brown (one of the cardinal sins of breakfast, in my book), the pie we took to go was SUBLIME. Maine Berry had raspberries and blueberries with a wonderful crust. The coconut cream pie was equally delicious and we won't forget either of those anytime soon.

I just ate there today. Ordered haddock which I figured would be fresh being right on the water. It smelled old and when I tried a bite, I knew right off it was old. I only saw my waitress to take my order, deliver my food, and get my check. I told her the fish tasted bad. She apologized but... More

The food was good and well-prepared. Nothing fancy, but certainly worth the price. Also open when other restaurants were not, so it was a convenient option.

The setting is idyllic and the artwork by local artists fun, but the food was only average and the single toilet overflowing during our visit. The crab melt and the crab roll were very fresh. The hamburger and grilled chicken were the usual fare and the waitress stated that the veggie burger "comes frozen".

We had eaten lobster rolls at Red's Eats in Wiscasset, Me. The ones we had from the Harbor Cafe didn't compare. Two of them did not have to meat of one from Red's and they were not as tasty. At least the Harbor Cafe was open which is more than I can say for most of this restaurants in this... More

We ate here in the off season on a Tuesday when everything else in town was closed. We had the breakfast special, blueberry pancakes, sausage or bacon and eggs. The blueberry pancakes were quite delicious and loaded with blueberries. We also had dinner here. The syeamed mussels and crab roll were great. Side of coleslaw too small. Disappointed in the...

Right across the street from a working lobster harbor and village . So the lobster is a fresh as a brief walk from the boat to the cafe .. Which is delightfully unpretentious .. But a reservation is needed and the local lobster men and women trump yours .. Its fun .. Plenty of good fish and good food and... More
