This is the best breakfast and lunch place East of Portland, and come to think of it, North of Boston!
Your first meal will be a treat, but BEWARE: THIS PLACE IS ADDICTIVE. Try the corned beef hash on Sunday and you'll have to hunt to find the potatoes -- it's almost pure corned beef. From the freshest eggs, the "blueberry-est" pancakes and all the classics at breakfast, to best in class chowders and soups, perfect Rubins, the freshest salads and delicious daily specials at lunch, this place is a total winner. What Jane does with the food, Amy equals with homemade bread and pastries, and if you get there early on Sundays: homemade donuts that will wilt anyone's will power. Add a bevy of the best waitresses and there is nothing left wanting......Bravo Chester Pike's!

Can't beat the delicious food prepared by the Chef owners, (who make one feel so welcomed), anywhere, for quality and price. It is superb American fare and there are daily specials that are so good. As I was sitting there eating my caesar salad which was so tasty and cost a mere pittance, I couldn't help but think what this would cost me at La Cirque in New York and would not be half as good, seriously. Everything is homemade, rolls, breads, deserts, dressings........you cannot beat that and the fish is so fresh and caught nearby. I understand that the Owner's have worked at the Everglades in Palm Beach often times during the winter months. You can tell, but do not charge the Palm Beach prices. A definite must try if you are in the area. You will not be disappointed and the girls who wait on you are sweethearts..very accommodating. Also, a great family place.

Friendly, efficient staff, reasonable prices and generous portions. Everything I've ever had there is good...and we go at least once a week when they're open and pine for them when they're not. A few points about the fish fry: 1) they serve (excellent) fried fish for lunch Tuesday-Sunday, so the dinner isn't your only opportunity; 2) the "Friday night fish fry" is really a full-menu dinner. It's just the only night of the week they're open for dinner...which incidentally explains the packed parking lot and friendly crowds spilling out the door.

We live locally and visit Chester Pike's pretty regularly. My boys love to go on Fridays since they usually have clam chowder. The desserts are "to die for" our family fav is the chocolate, peanut butter cake. We like it so much we ordered it in cupcakes for my sister's wedding. Amy, the baker, bakes daily with fresh ingredients...desserts are never a disappointment. I order dinner rolls once in a while too. Amy even bakes hamburger rolls for their great burger, my husband's favorite. Onion rings are fantastic and salads are delish with fresh veggies.
