My wife and I enjoyed a hamburger at the General Store. I had the cheeseburger with fried onions. Very Good. It was cooked as I ordered it, medium rare, and the onions were nice a crisp. Nice roll as well, not just a hamburger roll....More

I've been here many times and always had a good experience. The 7 napkin burger lives up to its name and the breakfast sandwiches are worth a stop. All this week I've been walking up for my morning coffee and it's been hot and delicious.

Unless you're staying in Owls Head or on your way to the Owls Head Lighthouse it's a bit off the beaten path. It fills up quickly. We got there around 12:30 and the orders were already backed up. I had to wait almost a half-hour...More
