Tues. evening "Two-fer" specials are popular with "locals" and seasonal vacationers. Door opens promptly at 5PM and every table is taken soon after. Items on the menu marked by a Bufflehead Duck are available for "two for $24." Under new ownership since last year, the Chef has imaginative entrees and fresh vegetables (grown on the premises). Water views.

I came here last summer during a trip around the east coast and I stopped here for dinner. The staff is wonderful and made us fell welcomed. The view of the ocean was pretty great. The food was really fresh and tasted amazing. Definitely worth driving 1,000 miles from my home in Minnesota, to eat some lobster.

My stack was only okay but my wife fish course was first class and they went to some lengths to ensure they dealt with her allergies. The ambiance was great too. Easy to find coming out of Biddeford, watch the speed traps and obey the limits.

Have been here many times over the years..Never a gourmet type place, but always very comfortable with good food at reasonable prices. Have been there twice this month and while the atmosphere is very friendly, the food needs work. Stuffed fish was dry and tasteless. Fried shrimp appetizer was very good. Hopefully things will improve with time.

Biddeford, Maine is a small town and Buffleheads is a quaint little restaurant located near the water by what some people call, "Sand Dollar Island" (which is another experience!). As we have family located nearby, we have been to Buffleheads a few times and always enjoy our experience. The food ranges from surf to turf, salads and soups and also... More

Our food was terrible. Two of us ordered the fried clams. They smelled and tasted bad. Sent them back to the chef. Two of us ordered the lobster rolls. The lobster meat was water logged as though the meat had been frozen, thawed out and served. We asked the waitress if the lobster meat was fresh and she said absolutely.... More

Atmosphere is casual, nothing special. The plating and presentation of the food was average. Seating was very uncomfortable. Tables overlooked tacky painted picnic tables with water off in the distance. If you have a business or need to use your cell phone..... Not at this establishment. For real estate agents, this presents a huge problem. We will never go back.... More

Been to this restaurant many times and I will say the food is very consistent. High quality, well presented and great variety. Always some great daily specials to complement the regular menu. Call ahead to put your name in if it is a busy time. Great desserts.

A group of us visited here the night before a MS ride . they serve until 9 but were nice enough to wait for the rest of us to arrive to order. We were very appreciative. The service was good and we had nice meals. I have seen some reviews that were really poor and just don't see where those... More

The place is clean, beachy and low key classy looking. The menu was great, we had a hard time deciding on what to have! Our lunch was really good, with a couple of creative twists. This family run business get 5 stars!!
