Best breakfast ever

The food is so good. I could eat breakfast there every day. The owner grinds her own flour and makes fresh bread daily.

The food is good, but the service is pretty slow. We have eaten here a few times and the food is pretty good.

It would be easy to drive right by this place, as it is less than eye appealing from the road. Word of mouth, however, led us to take a chance the first time we tried it. The restaurant is small and slightly the worse for the wear inside, but the colors are cheery and the raised booths are unique. The... More

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.

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.

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!
