Tried the Bluebird Ranch in Machias. There's two choices really in Machias and this is the one to pick. The seafood was fresh and tasty. My husband and I split a Fisherman's Platter. The onion rings were amazing thin sliced and cooked to perfection. They have an awesome dessert case. Important fact about their desserts : they use real whipped... More

This place is always busy whether it is with travelers or locals. They make a great blueberry vinagrette which they also sell. Seafood was fresh and plentiful. Service was spot on.

We had excellent Breakfast one visit and lunch another. The haddock sandwich was great at lunch. The three cheese omelet at breakfast was likewise great. Waitress was a little busy at times to follow-up with us, but food was wonderful!

Had a restaurant.com coupon so I decided to check this place out. Got the $30 seafood combo plate.Scallops, popcorn shrimp (did not state it was popcorn), clam strips, and haddock. Ordered curly fries and slaw for the sides. EVERYTHING tasted like the oil it was cooked in and since it came about 5 minutes after we ordered it, was clearly... More

they are walking the thin line between a regular family restaurant and a steak/fish house. that said, the food is delicious and Fresh Do expect prices higher than usual for a family restaurant. Their Blueberry desserts are top (mudflat, pie, cheesecake), we ate all of them.

We ate here for lunch and found the sandwiches very tasty and well proportioned. The desserts were excellent, especially the blueberry pie and the toll house cookie dessert pie. I'd recommend this restaurant for lunch for a family...very friendly and the service was quick and attentive.

A good restaurant in down town Machias. Nothing fancy. But the food is home cooked and delicious. Portions are large and served piping hot. The array of pies you see as you enter will make you want to go directly to dessert. Friendly staff.

The Bluebird Ranch Restaurant was recommended to us by a local resident. The menu was varied and extensive with relatively fair prices. The highlight was the onion rings that are lightly breaded and very tasty. The haddock fish and chips was also lightly breaded and meaty but not tough. We also had the fresh blueberry pie that was wonderful. Our... More

We stopped here for lunch and were greeted warmly. We started with an order of onion rings. They were thin cut, lightly breaded and delicious. My husband got the fried clams with fries and Cole slaw. He said they were fresh and perfectly cooked. I got the 'Pine Tree' cheesesteak sandwich with fries. It's a perfect example of a great... More
