Old school, easy access from the highway, not over priced, breakfast all day (my favorite) and even a cute little lounge area. Love the old school theme

We make it a point to eat at this diner when we visit from Texas. I had the Chicken Cobb Salad and my husband had the Reuben. Both were very good. The service was excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. Have you tried our pulled pork? I'd love to hear how it compares to authentic Texas BBQ.

A lot of seating available, menu provides enough of varieties to satisfy hungry traveller or locals. Close to the I-95, next to the bypass Rt 1, between two hotels. Service quick, wait stuff very efficient and accommodating. Typical diner experience and atmosphere. Prices quite reasonable.

They are very proud of their food and service. In both visits for breakfast and once for dinner, I have been less than impressed. They seem to have a loyal local base, but I probably won't be returning during my stay (6months)

Description
At the Roundabout Diner and Lounge, we serve breakfast all day, great burgers and sandwiches, Phantom Gourmet award-winning BBQ, comfort food classics like meatloaf, roast turkey, and of course, local New England favorites like fish and chips, and the best lobster roll around. We also use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, like bread baked just for us by When Pigs Fly Bakery, breakfast sausage made for us in Vermont, local cheeses, and more. And we make all our delicious cakes and pies right here at the Roundabout. From scratch! If you would like us to cater one of your events then look no further than Chill Catering, one of the largest catering companies on the seacoast.
