Great little spot in Hull to have brunch after leaving our hotel. Cozy, warm and large booth seating which was great because we had space. The breakfast was yummy, the Maryland Eggs Benedict was two crab cakes atop English muffins with a lovely Hollandaise sauce that was so good. Home fries were tasty and the blueberry pancakes we had we... More

We visited the Saltwater Diner for breakfast. We ordered the $3.99 special - 3 eggs, homefries and toast. Portions were large and delicious. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. Definately will visit again next time we are in Hull.

A small wain to get a couple of seats at the counter. Very friendly waiters. Was not a long wait to the food to come out. You will not go home hunger.

We love breakfast. Stopped in for a late breakfast. We had a great meal. Good size portions. The restaurant is clean and bright. While we were there we got a look at the food people were ordering for lunch which also looked good. We took notice of the onion rings and had to get them. We love thin crispy rings.... More

I was delighted by the local flavor, the generous plates, the specials, the reasonable prices. I had the fish and chips, which were as good as anywhere. The burgers looked great from across the table, and the corned beef special a few weeks ago was bountiful. It's very nice to site in a diner where it seems the owner knows... More
