“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place is small and just kitschy. The food is good and the ambiance is even better. It's worth a stop.

“Basic Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I love breakfast, and when I don't have to make it all the better. This little restaurant has breakfast all day! They also have lunch, seafood and nightly specials. The food is basic and good. You will not go away hungry that is for sure. On one trip during the Winter I got hot chocolate with marshmellows there.....a treat from the past. You must try is restaurant. As noted you do not have to dress up for this place, but it is fun being among all the people sharing good times. Try this restaurant out for a good, reasonable, meal.

“A "Don't Miss" restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We've been going here every time in Boothbay for the last 30 years. It is like a comfortable old shoe. It never changes the decor or the menu, but they don't need to. This is basic basic, nothing fancy, seacoast dining. You are as likely to eat among local fishermen as you are a celebrity. No need to dress up, but come hungry. Their overflowing cups of fish chowder are great and the clam chowder (served on alternate days from the fish chowder) is also to die for. And...don't miss testing their terrific desserts. Yummo!

“Frozen seafood and mediocre breakfast”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Stay clear of this outdated restaurant! The food is terrible. The seafood is frozen. Breakfast is the only acceptable choice and that is mediocre at best. If you make the mistake of choosing this restaurant once you will not go back again.
