“The Experience”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

To be honest its just ok food. Nothing to complain about, and the prices are right. What makes this place special is the local color: the proximity to a place that actually makes something in America (the shipyard), the retirees that used to make the ships (presumably since most of them have bullet proof ball caps), and the waitresses. When you come in you're greeted before you sit down. When you sit down you get your coffee. There is a good system, unlike many restaurants full of untrained college kids. I always feel welcome. I go here when I can for breakfast and I will keep coming back.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

This is a good place to start your day. The food is good and reasonably priced. It's also kid friendly with baskets of toys to keep them entertained while you wait. On occasion be prepared to wait as the place fills up fast. The place has tables that can be put together for groups up to 8.

“Good food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Well to start these guys are fab they managed to fill me right up!!!

We had breakfast several times and loved it each time. Yes it can get busy but heck there is the whole of BIW next door. Even so the staff should be proud of their service and the cooks the same with the food. Shame you dont delieve to the UK.

I would go back in a heart beat as its a fab place its clean, frieldy and we were said to say good bye on the last day.

Even when the navy guys came in they were rushed off their feet but keept a good service.

Over all :

Cost 10/10
Location 10/10
Clean 10/10

“Great Breakfast & Lunch at very low cost”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a local restaurant across the street from the Bath Iron works and Shipyard. Great home cooked fare with very reasonable prices. Just don't get caught in the Lunch crowd from the Iron works and shipyard.

“Everything taste the same”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

They say it is the best breakfast in town some may say that but... everything tastes the same from Breakfast to Lunch menu. Greasy food runs off your plate. We are locals we used to go many times a week not anymore.
