Be Careful What You Order

Most of the food here is terribly bland. Don't order the quesadilla it is just a toasted cheese sandwich. Stay away from turkey, it is frozen pressed meat. Fish and chips is a thin piece of breaded fish with more bread than fish. Lobster roll is great and a big portion. Breakfast is usually very... read more

Have tried this place 3-4 times and found the food very bland. Wait staff is upbeat, but the dishes have no style.

The cool thing about this diner is that it attracts people with vintage cars. The diner itself is not vintage-it is a recently built structure made to look like a real diner. It is also not someplace to go for good food or good service. The best thing about this place is the car owners who bring their great old... More

We stopped at The Blast from the Past on the way North to visit friends. I had stopped there a few years ago and wasn't really impressed, but there was nothing else around and I was hungry. I had a Belgium Waffle as the waitress told me they were made on site and not frozen like most places today. I... More

First of all one must remember there are two "Blast From The Past" restaurants--One in Waterboro, the other in Scarborough--both operated by the same owner. Although the décor is almost identical, there is a distinct difference between them. The Waterboro location seems to have friendlier waitstaff and more flavorful food--at least for the breakfast menu. Somehow, the Scarborough location seems... More

Well, this is not an easy review for me to write. I absolutely love the look and feel of this diner! From the bright shiny outside, to the cool 50's look on the inside. All the place needs is to give is waitstaff 50's attire and the jurney back in time will be complete! Complete except for the food! Yeah,... More

Now that the fall is here , it was time for a quick eat out on a Friday night and Blast from the Past was the choice. The retro diner building makes a Statement as a home to comfort food. Having eaten there several times, the statement is upheld each time. My partner had the special Turkey Dinner and she... More

Food is Barely Average, Service is usually ok, However, They are always out of something, or they forget to bring things, Then the Bill, Usually Wrong.. Better check the bill. Noisy environment, but good seats

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.
