Our family stopped for breakfast while traveling through. Everything was fine, employees were friendly, food was average. Would eat there again, but it was nothing special. Across the road from the Adams birthplace, so that was a nice surprise.

Never have a bad meal here! We come about twice a year for breakfast. Always friendly, fast service. And the food is freshly prepared and delicious. I have eaten dinner here in the past- giant portions of comfort food and fresh seafood.

We were there on a busy Sunday morning. Waited to get in, waited to get our drinks, waited to give our order. We expected that. However, once we gave our order, we were forgotten about! I was never given more coffee. I spotted the pot and went over to refill my cup after sitting there for 15 minutes with an... More

We go to McKay's every time we are in the area. Breakfast is the best in town, in particular the Irish Breakfast. The specials can't be beat. The turkey and pork dinners are at least two meals. My personal favorite is the clam roll. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Good catholic prices.

If you are looking to have a nice breakfast Mckay's they will not disappoint. Always good and consistant. Now that they have more seating in their place(they bought the place next to them) good move on their part. If you do have to wait to be seated because they are full then you will have to expect that you will... More
