Good breakfast - real maple syrup for blueberry pancakes

This is our new stop for breakfast, not as fancy as Mae's in Bath but solid food. They told us everything is from local farmers - that's worth the price right there - and it's not pricey either.

Food and service are always great. Somebody from the kitchen always has a smiling hello when you go in the door and a "come back again" when you leave.

Ship's Chow Hall is one of the best places to eat in the area for breakfast or lunch. All the food is homemade and taste great. Don't let the look of the place fool you. You know what they say don't judge a book by it's cover. Well that fits perfectly for this place. My family and I love it.... More

If you judge this place by how it looks from the outside, you'll probably keep on trucking. That would be a big mistake. Just take a step inside and you will find a warm and welcoming atmosphere with some of the best and best-priced food around. All of the bread is made in house and it is wonderful. For a... More

This breakfast spot was recommended to us by a motel employee. Right on Highway 1 and hard to miss, this is little diner has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and wonderful home style food served with a side of humor (I recommend trying their garbage omelet, you won't regret it). We were visiting out of season and found quite a... More

Talk about bidding in plain sight. The Ship's Chow Hall is right on Route 1 (across the street from Big Al's) and seems so easy to miss. Please don't miss it. The Ship's Chow Hall has been in business for 10 years and is one of the more comfortable restaurants on the mid-coast. It's a local favorite and I always... More

The food here is great! Standard american breakfast and lunch. Don't expect fancy. But do expect tasty, excellent quality, and handmade. Homemade breads, homemade corned beef hash, and wonderful pancakes. Service done by Tina is outstanding even at busy times she always makes you smile. If there's something you want just speak up and she'll try to accommodate. I'll be... More

We have eaten breakfast here several times and never been disappointed! We stopped the first time because it looked popular with local people…what we are always looking for. Super friendly waitress. The blueberry pancakes are delicious and last time we were lucky enough to be there when they also had red raspberry pancakes! The cranberry bread is wonderful and the... More

Great food... good prices... and a friendly wait staff... what more could I ask for. The Mama Rosa breakfast is a wonderful warming breakfast that I have never been able to duplicate at home.. so I gave up and just visit them for it instead. The breads are WONDERFUL... all home made daily and rich in flavors. Try the cranberry...... More

Looking at the building from the outside gives an indication of what to expect. The feeling is very run-down. However, the owner, who most of the time is the only waitress is excellent. Friendly, and efficient. The food is standard to better diner food. If it is crowded (and this place does have a following) the service is slow. This... More
