“Take out window is d best! Close to the boat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Before you go to the boat make time to stop at Ernie's for a clam, lobster or scallop roll and clam chowder (fish n chips also really good). And breakfast there (upstairs) is always a hit!

“Offer late breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We were on the hunt for breakfast at 11:30am and every place in town stopped serving. We then were directed to Ernie's and were thrilled to find a place that served breakfast until 12:30. It was worth the 20 minute wait. Lots of options and fast service. Cash only though.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Don't miss this delightful spot just a few steps from the ferry dock in town. Great food, nice deck out back to enjoy your breakfast and watch the fries come and go.

“Service that was prompt and cheerful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

Ernies is a delightful breakfast find that overlooks Old Harbor. The outside deck offers views of the ocean and Ferry dock while the main dining room looks out on active Water Street. Service was prompt and cheerful.
