We all had the Friday Fish Fry Special. The fish was fresh, French Fries and onion ring were cook well and the cold slaw well prepared. I don't understand the pricy review as the cost for two dinners was under $25.00 including a tip. This is our second trip to a Governor's Restaurant and weren't disappointed either time.

Very busy place where wait was a minimum Food was a bit over priced and under flavored for the quantity. Service was average at best.

Hi Bonnie: Thanks for the feedback.

We're know as a place that has relativily inexpensive food, so it would also help us to know... More

If you want home made food at a good price then this is the place for you. Delicious homemade breads, rolls, pies, cookies and more. The food is all-American style and everyone in your family should be able to find something they like from the menu.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, a rewards program with points for every time you visit. Huge portion sizes for food and pastries. Great daily specials during the week. Excellent pie. This is my favorite Governor's restaurant. Highly recommend

There was a time when this restaurant served a healthy serving of great food at a good price, they have continually expanded and can now seat a couple hundred people by my estimate. The problem is now the food is mediocre and way overpriced for what you get, thank goodness the breakfast is still good but it is expensive. At... More

Hi Phillip: Thanks for the feedback. We work very hard trying to balance our traditional menu items and new trends, so yes, change is inevitable. And yes, the cost of business is significantly more in 2016 than it was in the previous 57 years we've been around, so prices are bound to increase. That being said, we want to make... More

If your idea of a great meal is simple cooking and large quantities, you'll be happy here. Open for 3 meals a day, lots of desserts and home-cooking style choices.

Good-Average comfort type food. They do serve large portions of it. The reason to stop by here is to get dessert. The cakes and pies are awesome, and they make real good (and large) whoopie pies.

I've had varied experiences here. They have a great (and cheap) breakfast... I also love the kettle chips that come on the side of many entrees

Just a great breakfast stop when in town visiting with family at Umaine. Wait was normal for a busy a Sunday. Food was really good, service was good. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area who wants local flavor and not cookie cutter franchise places

Thank Nomar1227
