A diamond in the rough. I've visited this little diner a handful of times and the food is delicious. A little on the pricey side (considering it's in the 'hood) but worth it. Any place that serves Coors Banquet for Sunday brunch is OK in my book! I hesitate to get the word out on this place because it is... More

I found this restaurant on a recommendation. I drove past it once, as it's easy to overlook (TINY PLACE). I was there for breakfast, which was better than I could have expected. HUGE order of French Toast; just delicious! Drive a bit and find this place! One heads-up: CASH ONLY.

I made my way to the Palace Diner on Thursday 8/7 for lunch with my sister and niece. It was "crazy good," so good, in fact, that I went back with my husband and daughter the next night to have dinner on our way to the Ogunquit Playhouse. For lunch, my niece and I both had the corned beef hash... More

The Palace Diner had been under new ownership the past two summers, and had vastly improved over the previous owner. They have since given up, and a couple of new chefs have taken it over. This latest iteration is even better. The food service is much faster than it had been, the food is still expertly made, so the overall... More

Don't get me wrong, this place is great. Atmosphere, staff, & food - all 5 stars. The Challah French Toast is fantastically yummy and the corned beef hash has hunks of corned beef. But for 2 coffee's, a grilled cheese sandwich (just a sandwich), a breakfast sandwich, a double stack of french toast, and corned beef hash, two eggs and... More

My husband and I decided to try the Palace after a friend told us that it has the best French toast she has ever eaten. Although neither of us chose the French toast, we were not disappointed! I had the pancakes, which were the best I have ever eaten, and my husband had eggs, toast and home fries. Everything was... More

We were finally able to get the opportunity to eat at the Palace Diner this weekend. After all the press and raves from friends and family we made the trip down from South Portland for brunch on 7/5/14. Seats were full and the waitress was crazy busy but she took the time to let us know take out was an... More

We sought this diner out. It was crowded & we had to wait a bit for a stool. There are no tables & chairs. The waitress was nice & handled everybody. Our food was good. I got a sandwich, and the others got breakfast. The only thing that was not too pleasing was the price. It was rather expensive &... More
