Description: The best OMG lobster roll in the world! All food looked good. Inexpensive local cuisine in a casual, diner atmosphere.
Reviewed 19 August 2018

We were very pleased with the food, in both quality and portion. The servers are top notch being sure you are well taken care of. We went back the next day for lunch, and it was another good meal and good service again. Tops for local seafood with good choices, in the very enjoyable Maine style. From a seafood platter to BLT, you will enjoy food at reasonable prices.

The only down side, which is not the restaurant's fault, be sure your car is locked and secure because the locals are always looking to steal from you. That's just a sad fact of life in the area.

On a recent visit to the area, we'd actually passed by New Friendly Restaurant in the evening, and had noticed that there were quite a number of cars in the parking lot. We decided to try it the following day for lunch, and we were in for a treat. The food was so good, the waitress attentive and friendly, and it was quite affordable, too. We will make a point of dropping in anytime we're in the area!

While on an 8 day motorcycle trip through New England and Maine we stopped in for lunch. Small place but appeared to be clean and well maintained. The waitress was very nice and did a good job with the 8 of us. I ordered the fish chowder, the haddock lunch special and a small Caesar salad. The dressing of the Caesar salad had something in it that caused me to start coughing violently. The fish chowder was really bland, had to put salt in it to give it some flavor. Someone else in our group made the same comment. The haddock also was rather bland. Some in our group enjoyed the meal but most said while the food wasn't bad it was just rather bland.

There isn’t much competition for quite a few miles but they still do a great job. The menu is not super diverse but there are plenty of options. It’s definitely better than standard diner fare, you can get good local seafood (including a very respectable lobster roll) and they have daily specials that work in more variety. The place is no frills but the food is good and the people are nice.
