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.

A very casual atmosphere including paper plates and plastic & paper cups...but don't let it fool you...the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had.

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.

(My non-fish-lover husband likes the Reuben sandwich.) The haddock is always fresh and perfectly cooked, and the portion is so huge it could almost need two... More

This is a great spot located next to the B.I.G. and the menu has the traditional breakfast choices with some Maine flavors tossed in. Get there early for the fresh out of the oven Blueberry Muffins and if you bring your appetite and love for Lobster, I recommend the Lobster Eggs Benedict. Homemade breads and pies round out some of... More
