Weird atmosphere. Walked in and looking around no one addressed us. Finally someone said take a seat. Waited for over 5 minutes nothing. It was around 11:15 and apparently they have problems with the transition from breakfast to lunch. Seriously we were told it would be 20 min before they could take our order? We had somewhere to be at... More

We stopped by Mama D's after a recommendation from a co-worker, and she was right. For small-town ambiance with a down East warmth, Mama D's is the place. Small, quaint in and old Maine house, Mama D is willing to come out to chat, and show genuine Maine personality. As for the food, everything was beyond excellent; hot, fresh and... More

This cute restaurant is a must go in Boothbay Harbor! The food is delicious with some great specials and the service is just so friendly! We loved it so much we ate there twice in three days. This was one of the culinary highlights of our trip, such good honest food!

By choice, we live in Boothbay Harbor year-round. We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to eat, on average, 2-5 breakfasts and lunches at Mama D's Cafe each week. We know many other locals who eat there even more often than we do. We all love it. In all honesty, eating at Mama D's in the summer is sometimes not... More

Mama D's is a gem. Flavorful foods prepared using the freshest ingredients I've tasted in quite a while at any restaurant, and very reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and accommodating... The dessert waffle is scrumptious.... the lobster quiche tonight was superb! We summer in the area and Mama D's is our favorite restaurant -- very consistent quality. While Mama... More

As soon as you walk in your greeted like a local (we're from away). Outstanding food in a super cozy atmosphere...exactly what we needed on a drizzly morning! Perfectly cooked eggs and delicious sweets. Best coffee in Boothbay Harbor!
