Do not walk by, it doesn't look good from the outside, and the decor is nothing to write home about...BUT the food !!! Good home cooking and prices are great. I had the big turkey dinner (you can get small) was only $9.95 and lots of real food, not frozen or dry. My hubby had haddock and scallops and he could not complain, and he would if he could. His meal was $14.75 and they pan fried his for him and gave him mashed instead of fries. You should not miss this place!

The Dinner Plate was recommended by a lady in town (at Bulk Barn, actually) and the staff at the motel gave us directions. We were able to walk there which was a plus. It was a bit noisy and the service a bit slow when they are busy but the food was very good.

My husband found this locally operated/owned diner whiile out walking. We (6) of us went back for supper. This is an OLD style diner in every sense of the word but has really good food. Friendly maritime staff....and seemed to be really busy all day...Anywhere you travel, the locals know where to get good food...
Great food...homemade...good-generous portions. Fried whole clams...crispy, not greasy-really good. Battered-fried white fish...good. Two of the men had liver/onions/bacon & were very pleased with it. My sister tried the chowder & talked about it enough that we all returned for late breakfast/lunch the next day...she was right, a nice fish chowder... ( I do not like the milk to be flour thickened in chowders). We had a lobster sandwich ...it was good but not super special for the price. I guess I prefer my lobster with out mayo. If you like gravy on your fries etc...really good homemade gravy ( even had a few small lumps in it...but was really good)...again I am not a fan of "canned gravy" so I ordered it on the side...there was an extra charge , which was fine, but I actually ate it.
They serve breakfast all day...typical eggs-bacon/ham/sausage-hash browns-toast....but do not open until11am so not a spot to go to for an early breakfast.
Dessert are homemade but alas...we were too full, both times, to try them.....
This is not a fancy place in any way...perhaps not the place to go for really special occasions...depends on what you like...but the food is really good. We would certainly go back...

Love the new, updated, cleaner look. Best scallops I've ever had in Yarmouth, lots of flavour. Also one of the best brocolli salads is on the menu. Service can go either way, there are some that could be friendlier, and then there are some that go out of their way to be friendly, helpful, and you leave with a smile.
