A very enjoyable spot

The good news is that though we did not room here (no pool) a breakfast and dinner were fine. I had some of the best hash I've had out in a long time, and my wife's omlette was very good. Our dinner was first rate. My duck plate, or should I say bowl, was splendid, as was my wife's dish.... read more

My husband and I had breakfast at this restaurant 2 times last year. Both were a disappointment. Service was exceptionally slow and food was nothing special. The view is fantastic, right across the street from Long Sands beach. There is a new restaurant there now with new owners. They have remodeled and the owners are local. Hopefully will be better...

I like to be here for dinner, sitting at a curbside table as the sun goes down behind the building and casts its light on the ocean across the street. Wait staff has great personalities, food is good, view just can't be beat!

We enjoy having breakfast at the 123 at least once each time we vacation in the area. The view, the wait staff( even though many change each year) and the food always meet our expectations.

My wife and I went there at 7:30 and a nice waiter seated us right away. Unfortunately, he never came back. Not even to get our drink orders! If they were busy I could understand it but there were only 6 other tables and there were 2 waiters so to leave us sitting there for 15 minutes without even acknowledging... More

This is a fun little restaurant & bar right on beautiful Long Sands Beach. You can walk right off the beach or sidewalk and have a really fun drink and some good food. They have a theme every weekend such as pirate weekend, Caribbean weekend, Christmas in July weekend and so on. They carry the theme through with the decor,... More

Breakfast is excellent as is sitting outside when the weather is good. The only part that might be improved is the starting point for those waiting to be seated is out by the sidewalk.

Very friendly staff, fantastic chowder. Very comfortable and fun place right across from the ocean. Will be back next time we're in York Beach.

Watch out for the lure of their happy hour sign. They bank on you turning around, finding parking, loading up the meter, and settling at a table only to find a RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED food and beverage menu. Happy Hour pricing is TERRIBLE as well.

We stayed at the Cutty Sark and this was a perfect place to have the last drink of the night! It happen to be the night the Bruins were playing and we were able to see part of the game while enjoying the ocean across the street...and it was a 3 minute walk from the Cutty Sark....If you go...try the...
