The service is always very friendly here, but the food is just average. Lots of fried options. Better for breakfast than for lunch or supper.

We were served a great breakfast here. It looks and feels like a diner from the 50's Friendly people and good food. We had bacon and eggs with toast. All items were done right. Coffee was good. The place was clean. We noticed mostly locals while we were there. That is always a good sign.

I go to Breakwater after all the heavy lifting and such when I'm done at the local laundromat. Waitstaff always friendly, and coffee is hot. The Eggs Benedict will come with your eggs poached to your preference. American fries are great--bite-sized chunks of roasted redskin potatoes, yummy! Salads also good, as are the variety of other meals on the menu.... More

Had lunch here yesterday and left completely satisfied. My husband had a 1/2 pound mushroom & swiss burger with French Fries and I had a Chicken & Cranberry croissant also with FF. Delish!!! We found this gem some years ago when staying in the area and ate many meals here. Even tho we arrived around 2pm yesterday they were still... More

This is an excellent family full menu restaurant. There's something here for each one of our 'picky' family appetites.

I ordered the turkey and dressing. The turkey was not fresh, tasted like leftovers. Dressing was over seasoned with sage and salt and was gummy in texture. All together a very poor meal. I cannot recommend anyone eat here.

We stayed at the AmericInn and walked across the parking lot to the restaurant. I had the roast beef and it was very good. The service was also good. I would eat here again.

This restaurant is close to our Summer home and we have driven by it hundreds of times. Received some 40 and 50 % off coupons in the male so we decided to try them. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meals and the service was great as well. We have had a breakfast and a lunch so... More

We've been coming here for a long time. we've have breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Good selection on the menu and there are some new additions to it I have to try. We like to meet friends there if they're from out of town and they're staying at one of the motels, so we'll keep coming back!
