Always good food and friendly service. We stayed in Portland and decided to drive north on Route 1 to this favorite spot. Take time to get off the interstate and try this local establishment, in my opinion you won't be disappointed.

I had heard this restaurant had changed since the new owners took over, as in gone downhill. Gave it a try nevertheless with several holiday guests in tow. Not many people there and the interior was a little bland looking. Only one server that we could see and he was doing the whole dining area. Long wait between water, drink... More

Meet a friend here for lunch, we were seated promptly, nice big glass of water waiting on the table. Our only complaint was that the server didn't tell us the daily specials. both lunches were very good, I asked for my sandwich to be open faced, no problem. The fries are great. We will go back, happily.

Service is outstanding. Out wait person went out of her way to make sure we have a very good dining experience. The seafood scampi was outstanding especially since it was paired on my request with their risotto. While the medium rare hamburger was a bit overdone, the waitress and the kitchen came up with a replacement medium rare burger, pronto.... More

Great food in a really neat atmosphere. The place is small so you should get there early. We have been there several times and have never been disappointed.

Wonderful little restaurant and easy to find while traveling. Had calamari and it was wonderful. My sisters were also pleased with their food: pulled pork and a hamburger. Variety good. Service fine. Food good.
