“Bad service, cold food - and we're locals!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

Have been in several times over the year, but looks like its taken a dramatic turn down! Very bad service right from the start. Got there at 5 and said we were in a hurry due to an awards banquet. When our burgers came, the buns were ice cold, the patty tepid at best and greasy, cold onion rings. No refills on drinks, saw the waiter only once. Complained to the manager who apologized, but that was it. He never came over to the table to see how we were doing, and while I don't expect a comp, it would have been the right thing to do. The waiter mumbled an apology but they sure didn't seem to interested in making us want to come back. Is it because it is tourist season and don't expect a lot of return customers? Then mission accomplished - we WON'T be back and have just posted this to alert the tourists.

“Beer and Food so so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

Too many other choices in the area, so go to those. There is really is nothing special so spend your money at the better ones. Have not gone back.

“Good food reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Second time I dined here, I was glad to see it was still open. Good food, busy so its important to either make reservations or try to beat the rush. If you are looking for something a little different, less seafood, Sebago is a great place to start. Plus the beer isn't half bad either.
