Very mediocre dining option (but could be considered pretty decent for Maine I guess). The atmosphere is pretty good and the wait staff is friendly. The food is average at best.

We had a simple breakfast. Waitress was great, food was prepared perfectly and the prices were very reasonable. There was also enough room to park our truck and camper.

Went in for breakfast the other morning with 4 people. Two were children. Each kid got one choc chip pancake and shared a side of homefries. Two adults were there as well. One had a broccoli and cheese omelet and coffee and the other two fried eggs, bacon and toast (waitress forgot the toast). The bill was $45. We did... More

Probably won't go back. I was overcharged and the manager refused to refund the money. She said there were typos on the menu. I told her this could mean the loss of a long time customer, to which she said nothing. They also own Lisa's Pizza, Rosalinda's and the diner in Scarborough, which I will skip from now on. The...

Blast from the past isn't just about the food, it's about the experience. This 50's replica restaurant brings you back in time with a mood setting venue and reasonably priced food. Friday nights during the summer is the best time to go when antique car aficionado's rally to flash their pride.

I have not been a real fan of this place since day one. It has been a plastic place. You don't sell food when you go in. It is clean , neat, and well lite. The staff doe's fine, and it is friendly. But, too plastic. However, in the last months, especially during the Friday Nite Specials, the wife and... More

The red-and-white leatherette-upholstered booths, pink overhead lighting, black-and-white checkered floor, jukebox, old-fashioned popcorn machine, and walls covered with 1950's memorabilia make the Blast From the Past Diner is a real classic 1950's diner. It was built by Valiant Diners in Ormond Beach, FL. I began coming here in 2011. Returning from vacation in the Naples/Casco/Poland area, I took a 1/2-mile... More

I notice that the poor reviews of Blast From The Past date back several months so I thought I'd post a review based on our recent experience there. We'd spotted this very distinctive diner on our way north for a long weekend of kayaking and decided we'd try it on our way home. We were seated immediately at 4.30 p.m.... More

Ate there about a month ago. Food was ok and the prices were reasonable. Waitress was kinda grouchy, but was the only one on that afternoon and the joint was kinda busy. Excused. Was impressed by the decor and how clean the place was kept. Will probably go back.

My wife, daughter, and I ate dinner here one night and it was a sort of Twilight Zone experience. My daughter is a vegetarian and couldn't eat most of the meals on the menu but ordered fries and onion rings. They both arrived in a horrible state and the fries had beef gravy on them which she very clearly stated... More
