Old-time ambiance, a great salad bar and updated menu. I went there regularly when I lived nearby. Their clam chowder needs improvement but I enjoy everything else there.

Don't know about the motel, but the restaurant serves a great breakfast, and a good lunch and dinner. The chicken strips are the wife's favorite, but I prefer the sandwiches. It is your typical roadside atmosphere and food. You'll probably find some regular locals in the bar and I think they have karaoke on weekends, but haven't attended. The food... More

stopped in here to try their famous fish and chips and could not have been more disappointed! The fish and chips were actually good but not at all worth the almost 2 hour wait and no we weren't waiting for a table that was the wait for the food. we also ordered sandwiches which were comparable to something you would...

Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon after getting off the ferry. We were disappointed in the food here. The place is quaint looking and has wonderful wooden high backed chairs. I ordered the clam chowder and husband order a French Dip. First my clam chowder looked good, but had no taste. Even salt and pepper could not bring it to... More

Love this place (we live nearby)--great food and service. Cafe/diner type setting. Fairly reasonable prices (virtually everything is kind of pricey in the area). Conveniently located (south end of town).

I thought it was just regular diner food, until I had the Eggs Benedict. I have never had any better Eggs Benedict in my life. I am very well traveled, eaten at some pretty high end restaurants in my lifetime. Trust me on this. They have all the regular items, but some specialty as well. The Cheese steak omelette rivals...

I've eaten there 4 times and consistently have had hearty, flavorful, food. The service has been good albeit a bit slow sometimes on coffee refills. The building is old but charming. The prices are standard. It has a nice local flavor. I keep returning because it has been satisfying on every occasion.
