Lovely, Long, Lunch

The Starving Artist's outside seating in the summer is always a draw. This time we visited earlier than usual and sat inside. Food as ever was consistently good. They even indicated that they had gluten free bread if needed. I decided on a salad and it was fresh and delicious. My husband ordered... read more

Starving Artist has, in my opinion, consistently provided good food and good service over the years. The atmosphere is pleasant and works well with the authentic historical nature of the town. It is a couple of blocks off the beaten track and a nice treasure. But it is not unknown to most, as can be seen by the crowds in... More

i cant say enough about Starving Artist. The food is fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. Service is great - everyone is very friendly - in the warm weather they have a little outdoor area that is actually covered by a roof - sometimes the wait is a little long but well well worth it.

We ordered poached eggs, the virtuoso which is egg salad and tunafish salad, banana walnut pancakes, and a western omelette. The food was very good. Decaf was also very good. Nice server.

We have meetings there for the Shore Action League, meet for a weekly breakfast with friends, and when the weather is warm love eating outside in the gardens... I also enjoy the yearly shows that are put on in the garden....they are... More

I've come here for breakfast and lunch and each time have been happy with my food. The staff is busy but not dismissive and the food is great.

There is a separate restaurant, inside and also an outside dining area. The lines can be long in the summertime, but the wraps and food is good, hearty and healthy.

Food is consistently good and the service is spectacular. The owners are always present, are very friendly and clearly care about what they do and offer. In addition, they are extremely community conscious giving back in ways that are seldom seen any longer.
