    I have to tell you that this is not the place to go if your looking for good fresh food at a reasonable price! At least it wasn't on my recent visit on 5/24/04 for some breakfast at 10:00 AM. I have been in the food service industry for years and perhaps that makes me a little less tolerant, but I really don't think that was the case here. I also live on the coast of Maine and recognize when a restaurant doesn't really give a crap for the tourists but are only waiting for you to pay the check and send you on your way. I really felt taken by this place! My wife ordered the "homemade hash" that was obvoiusly from a can (i have been making my own for years and this was not it). The menu said crispy, when in fact we could have used a straw to suck it up! The eggs were bad as well. My french toast was greasy & gross. The toast was like a damn crouton dipped in oil.I was actually actually served deep fried sausage! The silver lining was my sons pancakes, they were OK! We did have to wait a good 5 minutes for someone to bring us the syrup and butter for them though (hello? it's pancakes and french toast). 1/2 filled cups of coffee with 2 creamers at a time and a single sweetener packet rounded off a completely sucky meal. I can't stand asking for coffee everytime I get close to the bottom of the cup which this time actually had grounds through it. I was tempted to complain but was too pissed so I plopped down my 40.00!!! for this mess and left. Oh yeah, and No Singin'! Please know I am not a whacko, just someone who doesn't like being played. Once bitten.......

    Very fun and entertaining

    This is a very fun and entertaining place to go to if you are in the city for a play or if you're just around the area. The food is good, especially if you go for dessert and the entertainment (the waiters and waitresses singing) is really fun.

    Highly Overrated

    The tables were too close together, the food was mediocre and overpriced, and every time the door opened we were treated to a gust of cold air. All in all, a less than stellar experience.

    Fun little diner!

    This was a fun breakfast experience. Food was fairly good and the prices were good as well. The atmosphere is fun and the singing waiters/waitresses very good at singing, although they could use a few more just for the waiting on tables. All in all we enjoyed our breakfast and would probably return.

    Doesn't live up to reputation

    Mediocre food, crabby staff who thought they were overworked (from what they were saying to eachother), NO singing - maybe 8.30am was too early for them. Most of my melted cheese ended up on the bottom of my friends plate before it was served to me, the omlette wasn't 2 eggs worth and my food was luke warm. I saw 1 waitress putting fruit into a customers dish with bare hands and then serve it to her I couldn't believe my eyes! Bitterly disappointed with this place, go elsewhere there are much nicer places to eat.

    Food with entertainment

    Food was very good at a reasonable price. Plus the entertainment was like a mini broadway show. Lots of fun for all ages.
