Got the large sausage & mushroom pizza served piping hot and delicious! Friendly wait staff, quick service, outside tables. Casual 'locals' ambience.

Frances and Ralph are favorites of ours - as they are for many; we stop in to see them every time we're in town. Frances is an excellent baker and all of their food is good, down-home delicious cafe-style food that's the center of the Southwest Harbor family restaurant scene in the affordable, basic fare category with great seafood options, service, and ice cream to dine in, enjoy the picnic tables in the little green alongside, or to take a cone and window shop in the little shops adjacent to the Quiet Side. Don't leave without one of Frances' famous fresh cookies, macaroons, or piled-high pie!

Very nice lunch spot. There were 5 of us and we were lucky to get seated. The food was wonderful. The pie and ice cream was great. Also the cookies.

It's the best around time after time for years. Whether meatloaf, BBQ, of seafood it's all good. Served with a smile. The best is always best busy, be patient.

Waitress was nice enough but place is under staffed. Our waitress had to take orders at the counter, with a line to the door sometimes, for ice cream, take outs, coffee, etc. and run the cash register. I finally had to get in line to get our bill to pay it after waiting a long time for it. Not her fault, I fault the owner for not staffing as he should. My "lobster stew" was as far from a stew as possible. Big bowl of hot watery milk with too much seasoning, and only small chunks of lobster meat tossed in. No veggies, potatoes or even crackers on the side. The clam chowder and pea soup others had looked and smelled good however. Blueberry pie husband had was not the best.
