Good food, good friends, good service! Out of state folks visiting the area, we stopped in to "Ships Chow Hall" and had a great breakfast, and have already returned to sample Maine hospitality. Tina made us feel right at home, taking time to visit even with the breakfast rush. We will return home with great memories of the Blueberry Flapjacks... More

Love this place. The breakfast burrito is the best. Why have anything else. I eat here at least once a month and I have never been disappointed. Ok, not true- they ran out of lemon meringue pie once. People are friendly and food is good!

We come here pretty much every Sunday morning, and are never disappointed. Good food, reasonable prices, nice people. I am a particular fan of their omelets - there are few who do as good a job on a sausage and cheddar version. Good breakfast spuds and homemade bread toast. We've always had good, prompt service even when they were busy.

We recently bought a vacation home in the area and figured we would try the place out. Immediately felt like an outsider when we went inside. Place was pretty quiet and it seemed like we waited forever to get waited on. Food was nothing spectacular. Won't go back again. Wiscasset Diner is the place that will always get our business.

We have stopped here twice and enjoy the omelets in any of several flavors. This place is not fancy but offers good food at a reasonable price. Great stop if you have to get up early and need to find a place that is open... You will not find a lot of tourists at the SCH, but you will find... More

While wandering after antique shopping, we ended up at the Dresden, Maine diner (that is it's sister restaurant and the bread is baked at this Wiscasset one). It was home-cooked and terrific. Bread, dessert, pies. All homemade. The place made me feel like I had traveled back in time with it's look, feel, and food. We had haddock stew, chicken... More

I found this restaurant by asking a competitor for a restaurant that served items that were not fried. They recommended Ship's Chow House right down the street and warned not to judge the place by the building. They were right in both instances. You'd never stop unless you wondered why there were so many cars out front. I ordered a... More

We had breakfast at Ships Chow Hall on both mornings of our recent stay in the area. There aren't a lot of other breakfast places in the area and we read a good review of Ships, so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We were welcomed immediately when we walked in and were seated at... More

This is a solid, no-frills, no-everlasting memory kind of place because the menu is straightforward with no modern twists or seasonings. However, if you have strong feelings that good, homemade corned beef hash is a measure of a breakfast you won't be disappointed. Long strings of corned beef, the right mix of meat, onions and potatoes, a little char on... More
