Home made breads, traditional breakfast fare, very reasonable prices

This estuarine on Route One south of the town is an excellent choice for breakfast. The homemade Brad was particularly good. We had very tasty breakfast sandwiches with egg, cheese, and bacon. Service was somewhat slow but we were there at peak time Sunday morning.

This is a nice place for breakfast. It is frequented by locals, and that is always a good sign. Comfortable and nostalgic atmosphere with booths, you really can't go wrong. Don't expect anything fancy, but you should be satisfied when you leave.

Locals know that Ships' Chow Hall is the absolute best place to eat! We've become regulars, and always treat our guests "from away" to a warm, welcoming breakfast or lunch. The atmosphere is decidedly informal, with a family style dining option at the long table in the middle. Menu selections include homemade bread and biscuits, custom ground beef hamburgers, "flaps"...

Yummy food. The owner, Tina, is very sweet. I love coming here for breakfast. The diner could use an overhaul in the inside - the decor and seating is worn. But the food is delicious!

We came here for breakfast and it was great. Excellent eggs and homemade bread was fantastic. Very friendly staff. One of our favorite meals while on vacation. Many choices,reasonable prices and quick service. They were putting 20 loaves of cranberry bread in the oven while we were there. Would plan our next visit to Maine so we could stop for... More

Loved the food and Lenny, the chef. He was hilarious. They serve breakfast and lunch. However, when you go in if you take a right watch that step!

After reading the good reviews and driving by many tines without stopping ( outside appearance terrible), we gave it a shot. Inside is much nicer and cleaner than outside. The food was ok, the corned beef hash was too heavy on the potatoes by a lot. Wife couldn't get a coffee refill. Everything was about average, nothing really good or... More

We just made our first stop here, a local resident recommended it. The staff was very nice and the food was excellent....Make sure you try the Homemade Bread and muffins! We will be back to try it here for lunch (only open for breakfast and lunch)...Do not let the outside of the building fool you...Clean and comfortable inside
