Great place to take a walk by the sea. Beautiful scenery and sounds. We sit on the rocks for a couple of hours when we go. Very tranquil and relaxing. Highly recommended.

I was visiting Bailey Island for the first time last week with my son. I had read up on the restaurants in the area although.this restaurant was highly recommended by my motel owner. He told me that this is the place that all the "locals" go to eat a good meal at a reasonable price. A very comfortable spot with... More

This is a very small place where all the locals gather. The food is always so fresh and tasty. Lobster omelet was a real treat. Great pancakes. Nice big crab cakes. Can't wait to come back and try the stuffed haddock and prime rib. Check the door for hours because they can change depending on the season. Staff is friendly.... More

Every year we make sure we have breakfast here. This year we were pleasantly surprised that they added lobster to the menu. So I got the lobster omelet. It was filled with lobster. So good.

This place is very popular with the locals, especially for breakfast, and can be quite crowded on a Sunday morning. It is worth a wait!

This place is perfect for a delicious and hearty breakfast. Huge portions! You won't leave hungry from here. The strawberry pancakes were really good.

My made to order omelette had fresh ingredients, the omelette was light and fluffy, the bacon incredible, the coffee on point. What a great start to the day along with great service! A... More

We took the ferry to the island, and didn't want Cook's. We found this almost a mile away which wasn't a bad walk with the breeze. The wait staff was very friendly. Seems like a lot of locals in there. The food was very good and cheap. It's served on paper plates which was fine with us.
