Great milkshakes, great view, nice people.

Only open in the summer, but a great place to sit and watch the harbor while waiting for the ferry to Swan's Island and enjoying a quick meal or snack. Love their milk shakes!

We stopped here for dinner after a long drive to MDI. Small place but plenty of outdoor seats and pretty at sunset. Food was really good, though not cheap, we enjoyed our first dinner on vacation with the kids here!

The food was OK. They noted that they were closing for good Saturday before Labor Day. I think my wife liked her meal. My Lobster chowder wasn't very memorable.

We always have to enjoy the clam strip rolls, and a shake before heading home from MDI. It has become a tradition over many years. Always enjoyable!! Love the view too!

Excellent place to stop by for a nice easy lunch. Not fancy, but just simply great food offerings, freshly made and simply served. The service was extremely friendly. You order your meal at a window and it is delivered to your table. Great pies, excellent chowders, the best we had during the whole week!

Great for lunch! We had been told to try the dough boy/dough girl...went one night for those, then headed back the next day for lunch and had them again. It was something different and low key. The staff was great - and so were the milkshakes! Limited options, but an easy place for the family. Like most place on the... More

We enjoyed a delicious outdoor lunch on their deck overlooking the harbor - fish and chips was perfect! Prices are great. This is essentially a seaside seafood shack, but that fit our needs just right.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying on the Quiet Side. Food was basic and very fresh. Each meal was a treat. Caught that last part? Each meal... we... More

The Best of all the places we ate. The prices were reasonable. Their Taco Salad is amazing! We have always been well served and the people are very pleasant and friendly. The food is inexpensive and the seafood is amazingly fresh! What a delight to eat here overlooking Bass Harbor!
