    Been coming here every summer for years. Always for dinner...have yet to try breakfast. Everything is delicious and fresh. Super friendly service at the bar. Eat at the bar if you're alone.

    They will mix and match and substitute anything if you ask. They made me a 1/2 Monte Christo with corned beef hash instead of home fries and charged less! #Protip - dip the Christo in syrup

    You can grab coffee & tea while you wait. They're incredibly accommodating with small substitutions and additions! Truly felt like the staff wants to make you happy as possible.

    Great tofu scrambles in the morning & at dinner you can request a special menu for all of the vegetarian / vegan / gluten free dishes. Mushroom tartare was amazing. Ask for the Wonder Woman table.

    The smokey omlette (smoked trout) was great. Our server, Erin, was excellent. Great breakfast!

    Omelet was so very good! I know it sounds weird but we think they make their own ketchup because we both said it was the best we ever had.

    Great family friendly restaurant! Casual and delicious food . Ask about box of toys for the kids and they also have kids bathroom!

    If you love the McDonald's breakfast menu, their mcthis way sandwich will blow your mind! It's everything mcd could've (and should've) done.

    Brussel sprout appetizer was amazing. More like a side dish and not an appetizer but I highly recommend it if you like BS

    Seafood sliders are extremely tasty. Crab cakes are amazing! And you can't really beat a good Maine Lobster.

    It sounds silly to say this because it's only bread...but it's the best restaurant bread I've ever out in my mouth

    For both breakfast and dinner this is an excellent option. Amazing omelet 'The Ann'!

    Don't ask if the place was once a garage. . . it wasn't! They put in the garage-style door a few years ago to join it with the outdoor deck (which is also heated during cooler weather.)

    Zucchini noodles with polenta were yummy! Aaron was a delightful waiter

    The salmon was very good! The glass noodles on the side, not so much. A bit overpriced 😬 We noticed that they labeled our table "lesbos" on the ticket... Not cool.

    They bring out the kids' plates as early as possible. Trust me, that is a great thing.

    They try to be high class but the only thing they have in regards is a snotty wait staff. The food falls flat.
