Diner near Campabelloand Lubec Maine

Great breakfast and just a short ride out of Campabello Island. Waitresses know all the locals the food was great and everyone friendly. Wide variety of comfort food and breakfast items.

When eating there the food is average, nothing special. The best thing is their blueberry vinaigrette dressing. I ordered a blueberry salad and blueberries could scarcely be found. Since I loved the dressing so much I decided to place an order online for a case of 12 (I planned on using some of this with a cooking class I teach).... More

The title of the review really says it all. A lot of the food is deep fried, which is disappointing for seafood. The service was friendly and helpful. I was traveling alone and brought a book to read. I was brought to a table with a lot of light, which I appreciated. If I were in the area again, I... More

I have eaten here several times in the past and always had a good experience. This time the food was bland and dry, and the service was even worse. Our waitress brought our meals and checked back only once towards the end of our meal. Husband could have used dipping sauce (never offered) for his dry chicken tenders. Our waitress... More

I have eating here before and it was good. Today I stopped in for some breakfast. First of all, I sat down and no one helped me for a good 5 minutes, or even aknowledged me. Two workers looked over at me but never told the waitress I was there. Then a waitress 4 feet away from me, said, I... More

Terrific restaurant where the locals (and tourists) love to go. We ate breakfast there twice in 4 days. Great food. Only problem was having to decide among large the number of great selections on the menu. We opted for the blueberry pancakes one day and an egg special with pancakes another. Totally Couldn't ask for a friendlier place with great... More

Always good food, fast service, clean facilities and family prices. I don't get there too frequently, but when I do all of the aforementioned assets apply. I live 35 miles away. If they were closer , I'd surely be there much more frequently.

I ate at the B Bird Restaurant for dinner my first night in Machias because the parking lot was busy, so I assumed it must be good. It was delicious the first night for dinner I had Baked Stuffed Haddock with cheese, Baked potato and beets with fresh baked rolls and a raspberry Italian soda. For desert I had a... More

This place is just the perfect example of a small town American restaurant. When I asked for a suggest they recommended the burger and the ham steak (because the ham steak is "huge!"). I ended up getting a pastrami sandwich (average, but what did I expect?) but probably should've gone for fried chicken or something along those lines. Either way,... More

Had the Bluebird Deluxe omelet. By far the best omelet I've ever had with fresh mushrooms, ham, cheese and onions. Very filling and reasonably priced!!
