“Down home and comfortable”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

You feel welcomed as soon as you walk in the door. The staff treats you like family and the food is very good. No Phillies or Eagles paraphernalia but a Philly girl can still be happy here.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

This is a typical strip mall eatery, far below even an average Maine 'tourist food' place. My fish and chips looked like long-frozen fish nuggets with industrial mushy french fries. The Ceasar salad had also seen better days and many of them in a fridge somewhere. We were a group of 12, and waitresses tried hard, but food still took an inexcusably long time to get out, even though we were the only party in the restaurant.
There are so many places one can do better within a short drive.

“Best prime rib in town!!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

stopped by Mr. C's again a couple weeks ago. This time I figured we'd go all out and get the prime rib. All I can say is WOW!! It was absolutely cooked to perfection! (We both had it med rare) The meat had a perfect outer crust on it and was completely infused with flavor. Just amazing!! the au jus was very tasty too. not just a regular beef stock as most places serve. The mashed potatoes were very light and buttery and seasoned just right. The whole meal was comparable to an upscale steak house! I cant wait to go back and have this again! I think were going to make it a weekly occasion! And considering we both had the captains cut and a couple drinks each the tab was just under $50. Very reasonable I think!!

“a great local hangout”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Good portions great food at a decent price its nice to have a place to go to where you can afford an evening out with friends the waitstaff makes you feel comfortable and at ease. They have a lot of items on the menu that include light fare and dinners there's something for everyone which is nice to see. If your not hungry the bar is a great place to hangout with friends and catch some sports on the tv another idea is if you don't wanna go out they also provide great take out so you can go home and relax
