There is not much in Machias, however this restaurant is worth the trip! Ordered the fish dinner, everything was good. I did not have room for the pie that is the reason everyone goes there, that will be my next trip. Good service!

I really was amazed at the eggs Benedict I had for breakfast here. English muffins had crisp edges that worked great with the eggs and sauce. Excellent service and free Wi-Fi too. I would eat here again
