As the title says, decent food, reasonable prices. Nothing fancy here but you won't starve and you won't go broke.

Excellent Fried Haddock. They have an all you can eat meal of this usually on Wednesday nights. And try ones of their homemade vinegarettes, delicious! Good portions and friendly staff.

Was hoping for a better meal here. There were 6 of us, and service was too slow and lackluster. Meals were not hot and hastily thrown onto a plate, a clear sign that the whole place was overworked for a Saturday night. Bummer; had high hopes in here. Will be back, but only because there aren't a lot of options... More

We were in the Bluebird Motel and were pleased to find such a good restaurant next door. The fish sandwich was huge and delicious.

On Wednesday nights, the restaurant offers an all you can eat haddock dinner. It is the best haddock in the world, and the piece you get is enormous...who can eat a second helping when the first is more than generous?!!! Though this special is not always on, the fried fish one gets is always a great serving with the "crust"... More

Stopped in for lunch, my side kick ordered a chef salad, I dove into haddock chowder and a spinach Sakai with a fresh blueberry vignarette dressing. We were not disappointed, large portions, great service and oh my goodness, even though we didn't eat dessert, the choices they offered were fabulous looking. Highly recommend this quaint diner, it is clean, speedy... More

My wife and I have been enjoying the beauty of the fall Maine coast and since Machias isn't far from our cottage we went there for lunch.
