“Good, but a wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

We had both breakfast and lunch here on a Saturday morning. The restaurant was busy but not full. The staff was friendly but had a hard time keeping up. The hang town omelet was really good, with the oysters cooked perfectly for me-still moist inside. for lunch, we had chowder, fish and chips and salads. It took a really long time for the food to arrive, but the seafood was really good.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

We happened to come across this restaurant and were so glad we did. We ordered clam chowder, clam strips and shrimp. The clam chowder is the very best we have ever had. Our waitress told us her Mom had made it for years, and you can tell it is NOT from a can. Absolutely the best in the USA! The shrimp was perfect, golden brown and crispy, with a flavor to die for. The clam strips were perfect, tender and golden brown and so very good. The service was very good when we were there, and we visited twice. We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Westport Waterfront”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

There didn't seem to be a plethora of restaurants in Westport and this place got good reviews on Yelp and the six of us headed over for a late breakfast. Kudos to our waiter Kenneth, who was amazingly friendly, helpful and attentive. It was about 1030 in the morning and some of us wanted breakfast food, some lunch. We totally appreciated the restaurant's willingness to offer their fish and chips at that hour of the morning -- and that may have been why we waited a long time for our food. But it was good when it finally did arrive. The air conditioning didn't appear to be on, the lights were really bright and hot, and the restaurant was crowded and uncomfortably hot -- that was the only real complaint.

“Great food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice in a weekend. Burgers were yummy, very fresh. Coffee was good and plentiful. Restaurant was fairly busy, but we had great, friendly service. For breakfast the next morning, I ordered the special peach pancakes with bacon. Again, the place was very busy. An older couple walked in and took the table while we were waiting for it to be cleaned. The waitress joked about it and gave us the next available table. She felt kinda bad but there wasn't much she could really do. She couldn't ask them to leave. The pancakes and bacon were very good. Never had peach pancakes. Going to have to try this at home. Again, coffee was good and plentiful. I'd definitely eat here again.

“Breakfast on the harbor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

Three of us went for breakfast on a foggy morning based on the recommendation of the office of the hotel were we stayed. There was only one waitress for the entire restaurant and she did the best she could. The milk and juice for one diner didn't arrive until half way through the meal. Two of us were very happy with our meal, the third wasn't crazy about the (blueberry) pancakes - too doughy & not enough syrup and very weak orange juice. The bacon was thick cut and crispy, eggs cooked just the way I liked them, but extra staff would have helped.
