Good food/ crowded space

Food is consistently good. Prices are very reasonable. Staff is ok, space is extremely limited and doesn't make for private or intimate atmosphere or conversations.

Food was a little more expensive. We both chose items on the Senior Menu but we forgot to ask for the Senior Specials and they neglected to offer them. So our bill was higher than expected. But mostly our fault.

I have always found eating at McNays to be very relaxing and enjoyable. The food is always good. The atmosphere is homey. It is definately not a fancy restaurant. It is more like eating at you own kitchen table without the work. You can even enjoy a drink. The staff is friendly an the prices are reasonable. Whenever my stepdaughter... More

We were traveling through and wanted to eat breakfast at a local, non-chain, restaurant. We decided on McNay's and were pleasantly rewarded. I had corned beef hash (made in-house) with eggs and my wife had eggs with home fries. Both plates were plentiful and well prepared. The waitress/cook was pleasant and helpful. Recommended breakfast stop for sure.

There food is all prepared the way you want it. The service is fantastic, coffee is always hot and filled. They always have a smile and a chat. Even the owner, John, serves meals and waits tables when they are busy. You can read the paper and just drink coffee, visit with friends. You can have a full course meal... More

I ate there twice, once on my way to New Brunswick and again on the way back. Yum! Delicious fish chowder and big lobster roll for $10. Only objection: coconut cream pie did not use real whipped cream, but the crust....oh my Will be back for sure...

Not a fancy restaurant at all BUT the food is wonderful. Had my first Lobster Roll and I wish we could go back again and again. All buns, pies etc are home baked. The pies looked so tasty with beautiful meringue on them. Staff was great to chat with. Locals seem to eat there a lot. You won't be disappointed... More

After a long trip in the US this diner was a great taste of home. The service was expected for only one on staff... cash and tables. They offer a medium sized menu with a good selection of diner favorites. Clams and Chips were awesome and the spaghetti special was great. If you go you MUST visit the restrooms. They... More
