Just your every day decent priced small town cafe. Nothing special except small town vibe and real old school waitresses. Love going there to just relax and unwind and be simple again.

We just had to go back here. Last year was awesome and again this year. Seafood platter with plenty to take home. I had the prime rib. Delicious. We looked so forward to returning and will again next year.

The docent at the nearby Owl Head Lighthouse recommended the Rockland Cafe as a “comfy mom & pop cafe” right in town, with great food and friendly staff and informal atmosphere. We missed the lunch rush, arriving about 2:00 PM on a Monday afternoon. We...More

This restaurant was highly rated and recommended. I can only speak for dinner and not other meals. If you like fried foods and lots of it and rude waitresses, then this is the place for you. I ordered broiled fish, scallops, and shrimp for 23.00...More
