Basic menu, but worked perfect for us. Cold beer, good food, would come again. Close to the beach and all the other old orchard excitement.

First, my wife and I have eaten at this place for over two months so many times I have lost count. Normally, everything is excellent- the staff care, the food is consistent and delicious- you get a wonderful experience. However, on Sunday the 21st, the staff did not have the backup or operate as normal. A long wait during a... More

Old Orchard Beach has never been a foodie destination for us. We love the fries, pizza, wings, etc., but we haven't found really good food until now. We stopped in our first night and were pleasantly surprised. I had a vegetarian panini, and my husband had a pastrami sandwich. The food and service was so good we went back with... More

My family stopped here for dinner based on the reviews and we were surprised. We waited for 45 minutes even though told 30 and the people who were seated 20 minutes later had their food first and were given their check and left before we were even given our check even though we had been done eating. The server was... More

Wow! This has to be the best breakfast I have ever had ANYWHERE. The food was cooked to order and to perfection. The corned beef hash had HUGE chunks of corned beef and the potatoes tender. The service was friendly and extremely personable. This is the ONLY place to eat breakfast in Old Orchard Beach. Can't wait to come back... More

My husband and I found this little gem with the recommendation of a friend who vacationed here earlier in the summer! Boy, were they right! Our server Christian was out of this world! Not only did our appetizers ( bacon wrapped scallops & crab cakes) come out fast, but they were to die for! Who knew something so simple as... More

Atmosphere is kindof a hip/open air bar. We were expecting typical bar food - boy were we wrong and what a great surprise! Very awesome yummy menu for breakfast, lunch and a nice dinner menu too. Great eggs benedict for breakfast and also my favorite lobster roll on the trip (and we tried them a lot of places). One night... More

After spending over a thousand dollars in meals this summer, I'm very shocked to say the service and food were horrible tonight with no guidance or management on site. Poor food quality and long wait time was a surprise and a shock based on my regular visits. I dint know if I will return or recommend this place to my... More

Have been here twice for dinner during a vacation week and the food is always fantastic. Plenty of choices . Have gotten the filet mignon, salmon , risotto, and chicken artichoke pasta and every dish was super. Also drink prices are very reasonable compared to every other place in the area. Honestly, there is no reason to eat anywhere else!
