Are you looking for down home comfort food? Well look no further. Fresh / and great portions. Desserts are made on site....and are AMAZING!!! .... Friendly staff. Great for parties as well. A must stop. Lately been there 4 - 5 times a week.

Food was just average, service slow. Fries cold. Over priced. Maybe it was a bad day? I would not go back but I think it's pretty popular with the locals.

Nice simple food, casual dinning, loads of vegetables on plate but not much turkey. Peacan cobbler very sweet, a little less sugar would make this more enjoyable.

Very basic place with only two-three choices of food which is not deep fried. I had baked scallops with mushrooms and peppers which were OK. My husband had baked salmon which I did not like at all - no flavor. But the service is the friendliest and it deserves recognition. Very reasonably priced pub fare.

We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of the staff at the geological museum. We had seen someone digging for clams earlier that day, so felt we wanted to try fresh local clams. They were wonderful!

On the edge of Parrsboro, my friend and I had a nice dinner. Both of us ordered sandwiches and side salads. Our waitress was friendly.

Friendly staff, good food at usual restaurant prices. Lots of parking. Really like the gluten-free fish and chips.
