With all the restaurants in town we stopped at Bessie’s. Huge mistake but we were hungry and had no clue. Gave it a shot. $55 mistake. Lol. Each had a lobster roll and it was fair but at least a decent amount of lobster. Wife had a Bloody which was ok and I had draft at $4 each. Not a bad deal. Our server Aspen was very good, friendly, on top of her game. The decor was lacking a lot but it kept us alive. Actually, might go back for the beer prices. Lol

Consistent. Will not knock your socks off but look at their deserts and you may decide to give them a try. Always displayed in a refrigerated/lighted cabinet as you walk in.

We thought this place would be ok at best. However it was really poor. We ate in the bar and the bartender Nate was great. He took our drink order and returned quickly to take our Dinner order. The crab cakes we barely warm and they appeared to be flash panfried but were cold in the middle. They were served on a bed of mesclun greens and coleslaw with a dollop of aioli sauce. The one main course was broiled Haddock. The fish looked like some one sprinkled bread crumbs and butter and microwaved it. On the plate with the fish were the frenchfries, absorbing the fish juice . The combination platter was the same except there we about 3 fairly large scallops and perhaps 5 shrimp about the size of a nickel, also lukewarm and probably microwaved. The drinks were good.. how can you mess up vodka on the rocks with a lemon wedge and a glass of wine. Won’t be back Ever!

I had a terrible experience at Bessie’s. The tables were very sticky and they did not have a high chair for my baby brother. The food was pretty Fast, but everything I had ordered was terrible. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting and so dirty with a fly swarming around. Overall I do not recommend Bessie’s, if you are coming to oqunquit i would really not recommend Bessie’s

I heard breakfast at Bessie's is great; we made it for lunch, and the food was good, but not great, and the service was slow (as it was generally in town). Terrific location in the heart of town, and it is a respite from mostly overpriced fare in Ogunquit. I will try it again for breakfast.
