The food was average for the price. I would go back if others wanted to, but I definitely would not rush! Many other places to try.

This diner styled breakfast was solidly good. Service was excellent and friendly. The scrambled eggs were a little more omelet like than scrambled and a bit browned. My teenagers liked the pancakes. The price was high for a diner, but consistent with other eateries in Southwest harbor.

We had a very pleasant server, but unfortunately we had almost an hour's wait for our breakfast to be served. The food was poor and extremely overpriced for what we had. To add insult to injury, we were appalled to see the cook emerge from the kitchen wearing the filthiest clothes I have ever seen. If we had spotted him... More

We arrived and they told us right away it would be approximately a 30-40 minute wait. How refreshing to be told in advance and let us make the decision. We decided to wait and sat outside looking at the scenery. It is well worth the wait! We really enjoyed every bite

This little place is a great place for breakfast. the food is very good, and the scenery is lovely, right on the harbor. There is seating inside and out. The staff is overworked, but they do an excellent job. And Grumpy may be misnamed.

Grumpy's is quintessential Maine - small, family-owned restaurant run by husband and wife with good food and always a fun conversation. Grumpy is great and his cooking is pretty good, too! Try the corned beef hash or any of the omelettes. His wife does a great job maintaining order up front

I can't say enough about Grumpy's!! This is a family run restaurant that made us feel like part of the family. All food is home made; their son even makes the bread. The lobsters are fresh off the boat. While waiting the kids can go down and look at sea glass on the beach. Grumpy is anything but grumpy. Friendly... More

We decided to seek out Grumpy's once again....first time was cold and rainy. Today was warm and sunny and we ate outside! But guess what....we ordered the same thing. Blueberry Pancakes!!! They are as wonderful as ever. Met Grumpy and told him thanks for the great food and not changing the receipt for the pancakes. Total meal was --drinks and... More

Great breakfast with good selection. As a family we ate homemade corned beef hash (amazing!), pancakes, and vegetable eggs Benedict. Homemade bread was amazing. Nice view of Southwest Harbor.
