Went for Valentine Day and was very pleased with the food and service. Had the Prime Rib. Very good value. Cooked perfect and the taste was wonderful. Includes soup and salad bar.

It has the potential to be so good. The atmosphere was fine, service, ok, but the food was awful. What a way to ruin what should have been a good lobster stew. Other diners in my group were not impressed with the food either. Sorry to have to report this, but don't waste your money.

Have had one of the best corned beef briskets ever. Mixed with onions and baby red potatoes that are cooked to perfection, come with 2 eggs and toast for $11.99. That might sound like an expensive breakfast, but let me tell you that this means you'll be taking the leftovers home for another meal!!! Exceptional wait staff, Good place to... More

So we ordered a beer and waited, and as we were about to place our order, were then told the kitchen had no pizza's and no potatoes for potato skins - two... More

It was my husband's birthday and since we were checking out the Gotham Maine area, we decided to try Ocean Gerden Restaurant for lunch.

My wife and I had dinner here with her brother and his wife. We wanted a good seafood supper. I ordered a seafood platter - lightly breaded and fried clams, scallops, fish, fresh fries; my wife had a kind of lobster pie. I found my meal satisfying and tasty, my wife found the lobster dish overcooked and tough.

Very slow service. So slow that others got up and left. Drink order mishandled. Meal orders flubbed. And meals mis served.

As my Aunt and I sit here on Sunday morning waiting for our breakfast I find I have ample time to start this review . 45 minutes and counting . 15 minutes before we were greeted only to be told she would be back . We flagged down the only other waitress we could see and she brought us some... More

We came here with friends from NH after a day of kayaking. We decided to come here because it is halfway to our house from where we were kayaking. We had good meals. I had lobsta, partner had scallops, friends had haddock and scallops also. Our meals were great! The waitress was wonderful. The price of the meals were great!!!
