“Right in the heart of Main Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

The Seabiscuit Café on Main Street is quite small and very busy usually. The server was very friendly. The sandwiches we ordered were very good as was the soup.

“Whitefish Reuben to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

There was a little bit of a wait to get in so we ended up sitting at the bar but it was worth it. The bartender was great-very friendly, helpful, and made great drink suggestions. We ate there for lunch and had the bbq pulled pork sandwhich and whitefish reuben. The pork was good but the treuben was phenomenal! It is probably one of the best sandwiches I have ever had in a restaurant. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Overall, we really enjoyed our lunch-good service, great food, and decent prices.

“Not like the name”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

There are plenty of definitions of sea biscuit and none see to fit. This is a cute cafe/bar on the main drag of the island. Typical of vacation island spots, people were drinking at 11am. We went in for a lunch/brunch snack and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal and the great service. Lots of fun local characters were popping in and out and with huge open air windows in front you can see all the goings on in the street. More than typical bar food. Nice menu and good food.

“Good choice - Good food. Pretty good prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Not a large menu. But the grilled chicken w/ bacon & cheese is a winner. The smokey barbecue sauce makes it. Lobster BLT not so much. Fries and onion rings good too. Decent amount for the price. Not as pricey as the Pink Pony. So overall value not tops but it is vaca and you are on an island.
