“Skip this Restaurant-Shouldn't be Rated #2”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2007

Visiting Damariscotta and went in for breakfast to find the person doing the seating to be officious. Where that is unusual in this part of the country, I forged ahead and was told what I wanted to order (prime rib hash) was already unavailable at 9AM. I ordered scrambled eggs that were so greasy I did not finish them but had an upset stomach with what I did eat. The grapefruit juice I ordered was from a can and so old that it had taken on that grey/yellow color. We were never asked if we wanted more coffee, and toast here comes unbuttered and, in my case, a type of bread other than what I had asked for.

For a good meal and friendly service in Damariscotta.....try King Eider's Pub and see Erin for a great chat about her lovely town.
