Had a cheese board with bread before dinner that was delicious. 3 cheeses some bread and husk cherries. My husband had the beef tenderloin medallions. they were melt in your mouth good. The menu is very limited but they're all delicious. portions aren't huge so order an appetizer or small bite if you r a big eater. I had the haddock and it was wonderful. This is a very small restaurant so you need reservations or go early like we did and have Linner

Rock City Cafe

Reviewed By suzinvt - Middlebury, Vermont

This is just a jewel of a bakery-slash-cafe! A fabulous menu of amazing variety. Great food offerings, from soups to sandwiches galore...to sweets and very specially-crafted hot drinks! Perfect for our recent frigid winter visit to Rockland.

Lots of charm in this cute little eatery, great service from very hard-working staff, as they do get very busy and this is a go-to for locals and visitors alike! The number of tables and their turnover is fairly good, so you will most likely be able to get one. Better yet, grab one when you see it and have someone in your party order for you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time and food here, and then wandered to the back of the cafe into the adjoining book store. Perfect! A lovely spot to visit that I highly recommend.

The Slipway

Reviewed By Betsy-Dana H - Andover, Massachusetts

Had wonderful experience tonight. Started off with monkfish fritters and fried oysters. All were top shelf - hot and well prepared. Hubby had lobster roll and I the pan seared haddock. All were perfectly prepared. The French fries were amazing. For dessert we had blueberry pie and ice cream. Everything was excellent. Server was very attentive and engaging. Expensive but totally worth it. Lovely night to eat outside on their picnic tables. Oh yes, would have loved some sort of bread with mea..

Dorman's Dairy Dream

Reviewed By mamontgomery - Grenoble, France

Dorman's has been around since before I was born (and I'm getting OLD). Can't teach this dog new tricks. I ONLY order grape nut ice cream on a plain cone, and it's DELICIOUS. Quantities are heaping, even a small cone has 2 huge scoops and the price is more than fair. I'll be back every year I come to Tenants Harbor. Thanks, Dorman family.

I haven't been to the Thomaston Bistro and Bakery since it changed hands a number of years ago, but we stopped there for lunch today. The inside decor is basically unchanged, but the food is much improved. We each had a very simple BLT and it was yummy..lots of bacon. Service was pleasant and quick. Very nice lunch stop!

Rock City Coffee Roasters

Reviewed By Bruce G

Stopped this afternoon for a coffee. They 4 or 5 varieties of coffee including organic and non organic regular and decaf. The dark roast coffee was excellent. It is as piping hot. You add your own cream / milk and sweetener if you so desire. It was quick and courteous service. It opens at 8 am on the weekends but at 7 Monday - Friday. I didn't try their pastries at this location but apparently they are baked at their other location just a few blocks north on Main Steer. I did try there almond pastry at their other location and it was to die for and at a steal at just $2.50. The pastries where very large and delicious. You've got to go!!!

My experiences here was ok. The food was tasty and a solid breakfast. It wasn't as friendly as I would have expected but it might have just been an off day. Great location and nice place overall. I'll be back.
