My husband and I had a nice fall lunch overlooking the water. We both enjoyed our meals and our server was very attentive. We sat out on the porch and really enjoyed it. We got onion rings that were delicious. My burger was cooled just right and my husband enjoyed his Ruben. We will return.

Nice service but everything fried to the point of tastelessness. We ate only apps, glad we didn't order entrees.

Stopped in for lunch on our way to Acadia. Were seated on the outside deck with a nice view of the water and a nice bridge in the distance. Service was very good - friendly and attentive. The menu was typical burgers and sandwiches. Beer was cheap ($6 for a 22 oz draft). Had the fried haddock with onion rings... More

The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. It's too bad they're not open year round. I had the waffle with wild blueberry syrup with home fries on the side. What I found remarkable is that I didn't really taste any hint of any meaty flavor on my home fries which I find prevalent at other restaurants I ordered... More

We enjoyed your view of the Penobscot River, the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Fort Knox from the deck. This was our third time here and each time we have been pleased with the food. This time we stopped in for some refreshing drinks and fried pickles! The batter is light, the pickles are crisp and we were not disappointed!

We wanted to eat outside near the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Fort Knox. This place had the perfect view, great food, clean bathrooms, and a great staff. We bought a nice T-shirt too.

So I really hate to rate this place so low because the people and the view are so awesome, but the food isn’t. We had such a great time there! If you are coming for a view, great view from the patio. We had great service too. But the food was not so good. Our table had two appetizers –... More
