“For that good old time feeling..”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I always hit up Bessie's for breakfast. Working in Ogunquit from Spring thru fall this is a frequent place of mine. Service is friendly, quick and the food is good breakfast food with hearty portions. Lunch and dinner is always good as well. If you don't want to go fancy and want a good meal, check it out!

“Not nearly as good as last time...”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We come once a year to Ogunquit on Memorial Day weekend. Our first dinner is always Bessie's. Two people in our party always get the chicken pot pie. This year 3 people got it. It was horrible. The crust was raw and there was hardly any chicken. I had a scallop platter that had tiny kittle scallops without much flavor. Two other people had the fisherman's platter. They were also small and poor quality. We asked the waiter if they had changed hands or gotten a new cook because it was so out of character. He just started last July and had no idea.

“Good place”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Chicken club is fantastic. The atmosphere is ok but be cautioned when the local bars or an event in town the crowd can get a bit over the top. I will say manager removed the participants quickly but a few others remained. The food. Just ok not WOW but with prices charged it should be. I would say yes to this place if your downtown and done want to move your car. Not a destination place

“An Old Fashioned Diner Experience”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Ate at Bessie's (8 Shore Road) as there was free 2 hour parking behind it, by the public rest rooms and behind the convenience store. The town is full of for pay parking and it is difficult to find free parking, even next to restaurants. Had a Lobster Roll with french fries (16.95), a fried haddock dinner that came with wide cut fries and coleslaw (15.95) and a pint of Old Thumper Draft beer (4.00). The lobster roll actually comes with potato chips but for 2.00 you can get the wide cut fries instead. The place was not busy so the service was great.
