Great for breakfast

This cash only restaurant is very good. We stopped by for breakfast and really enjoyed out meal. Very small on the inside but cozy. The food is good and the service was good too.

The whole place feels like it's about to fall down. The stools are crooked, the counter is slanted, and the floor is uneven. It's awesome. We sat at the counter and had brunch, sort of. My husband ordered off the lunch menu and I had an omelet. The food is straight up old style diner fair. The coffee is good.... More

The food was good but you have to wait between 30-45 minutes on the weekends. Food is good and fairly cheap but very cramped place.

I'm only reviewing this restaurant because it was enthusiastically recommended to us and was a big disappointment. Typical breakfast menu, not particularly good, but tolerable. Wish I had eaten at home.

Small hole-in-the -wall breakfast and lunch spot. Near waterfront (although has NO windows) and easy walk to many local attractions. Simple OK food at moderate prices.

I had the flounder plate my husband had the clam plate. They give you lots and lots of food I just wish it had a little bit more flavor. They were extremely busy when we were there but they turn tables over quickly and do what they can to get people seated. Can't beat the price.

This is diner food at its best. This is a little hole in the wall diner right on the harbor. The food is awesome and cheap. Generally there is a line out the door on weekends. The omelets and blueberry pancakes are must have dishes. They offer take out and are a cash only restaurant.
