Food is delicious and large portions this time we enjoyed the fried clams, chicken tenders and roast turkey dinner. Dessert was to die for - we'd recommend the chocolate cream pie and apple crisp! Look forward to this diner every year.....worth the wait!

Cute little old town diner that caught our eye from its famous appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Food was very good and service was quick! A great pit stop for lunch or dinner! Try the Triple D, it's what was served on the show!...More

Their award winning chowder is amazing and one taste you will agree why it wins awards every year, yet sadly everthing else was just average at best. We were pretty disappointed.

We've been here twice now during our vacations to Maine. Love the Lobster pie each time. Service was speedy for an early dinner (4:30 or so). Beer in a frosty mug is also a nice touch. Nice grounds in back to walk if you have...More

Great food and you don't have to like seafood. They have other options that are just as tasty. Personal favorite was clam chowder and a burger. So juicy and flavorful. Easy to find, looks clean, relatively fast service. My only "dislike" is its ALWAYS crowded...More

I don't think that they use boxed eggs. I think that many restaurants cannot make good scrambled eggs, because they make them on the grill and scrambled eggs need to be made in a frying pan to turn out right.
