The haddock chowder was delicious. It was creamy and flavorful and priced affordably. It's a shame that this restaurant isn't open for dinner.

Ok choice, ok food at a ok price. A bit too small inside. A way to avoid being in a crowded hotel's included breakfast small room, but not more.

Awesome place. Great price for the #3 combo *3 slices of french toast, two eggs anyway, and bacon/ham/ or sausage*. I love this place, and will be coming back. Door couldn't stay shut everyone was so friendly and loved the atmosphere. If you wan't a great breakfast or brunch Simple Simon's is the place for you!

We were looking for a good quick breakfast and found it at Simple Simon's. The restaurant is diner-like with basic, simple food. The prices are reasonable and the service is good.

I ate here at lunchtime while waiting to go and board the Portland to Yarmouth Nova Scotia. The food had very little taste. The staff was Ok frendly enough, but to clean. Only tried this establishment because it was convenient.

I love this place. It's a small restaurant. Eat-in or take out. We have eaten both breakfast and lunch there. Prices are reasonable and the owner and staff are very friendly! Very small, seats about 40 but we were able to bring family of 9 in there! Everyone had something different and we all loved our meals!

This is a local, mom & pop type of restaurant. It was open seating with the grill and the counter in sight of all the tables. There was mostly a senior crowd late on the Friday morning we visited.
