The restaurant was very good to us. We arrived to South Baymouth in a large group. None of us were aware that there isn't much here in this Podunk town. The town is a dry town. No alcohol offered at this restaurant. It took a painfully long time for our food to come out but in all fairness, we were... More

Cash only. We went twice, once for dinner, once for breakfast. Both times the staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. It's informal, and the decor and furnishings are a bit spartan, but the food was quite good. Wish we hadn't been travelling because would have loved to take some of their pies.

You get a lot of food and it's decent and the price is reasonable. It's fine if you just don't feel like cooking and want to go out. They have a bakery but don't have a lot of variety there so I wouldn't drive a long distance to go to the bakery only.

Had we known there was another option in South Baymouth, we would have taken it. We ordered the 'special' of the day: fish dinner. The meal consisted of a large plate of fries, five tiny pieces of fish, heavily battered. The fish itself amounted to three or four bites. Unbelievable! It included a tiny coleslaw and salad. For $16.95, it... More

We ate here for the first time today and were very happy. Carol and Earl as well as Earl's sister, introduced themselves and made us feel very welcome. Earl's sister showed me a map of the island and pointed out places to visit. She also gave us tips on where to shop. A couple at the table next to us... More

Upon arriving we saw a sign that read "CASH ONLY". We asked if we could pay in US Dollars and were told yes. We proceeded to a table and we were told by the waitress/owner that the perch was what they were known for and that it was great. We asked if we could have it grilled with no batter... More

Very clean, with large portions, all seems homemade. The owner was very professional and was working the business himself, which is always a good sign. I didn't get to try, but the homemade pies looked great !!! I'll be eating here again.......

Stopped here for lunch and greatly enjoyed it. Diner fare. Generous cups of coffee and heaping servings of fresh, homemade fries. The owner makes his burgers from scratch and you can tell. Would definitely return! Cash only, but there is an ATM at the gas station across the road.
