Food was excellent, as was the service when we were there in August. The Maine blueberry pancakes were delicious at breakfast, and the seafood excellent in the evening. Look forward to returning there next summer.

We had breakfast and dinner at this restaurant during Labor Day weekend. Town was packed and parking at a premium, so Browns appealed to us. No problems parking. Breakfast was ordinary and dinner was mediocre but service was fantastic.
