Best stuffed haddock I've ever had.

Terrific stuffed haddock, huge baked potatoes. Good salad. Nice place. Oldest diner in Maine. The night we were there the wait staff was short, so we had to wait a bit. That's ok, though, the locals kept us entertained.

Have eaten breakfast here several times. Always good. Excellent server with a sense of humour. Nice view and convenient dock if arriving by boat. Not the cleanest place and bathroom needs an upgrade but I'll overlook this and give this place a 5 star rating.

Place is 94 years old and looks it. The Eggs Benedict and Vegetarian Benedict were fantastic. You just have to be willing to overlook the less-than-clean surroundings and the flies coming in the open back door. We were able to do this and were rewarded with an excellent meal. Would definitely return.

Had breakfast outside overlooking the harbor 1st morning. Second morning it was too windy and foggy so we ate inside. Fun to eat with the locals Great selection of breakfast food - my favorite meal of the day.

Twice now I've got to sit in the Waco diner and get weird looks from the servers until I decided that was enough. I'd write about the food but I didn't even get coffee. Do ppl get food here? Is it just a place to sit?

We ate lunch today at the Waco Diner and enjoyed every bite. I had the Fisherman's Breakfast and my husband had the blueberry stuffed waffles. Neither of us regretted our choice. Our server was very friendly and efficient. If you are in Eastport, don't miss this restaurant. They close early so check their times before you go.

the WACO is the only place in or near Eastport for breakfast. Service is brisque but good and coffee very good. Yeahs Benedict and French Toast are also very good. The side of hm was good. I recommend this restaurant for breakfast.

First stop after first night in Eastport due to two recommendations. Had breakfast. Nice location, beautiful morning. It got very busy after we arrived. Server was great and was working her butt off to keep up. Looked like there were only 2 servers. Had a breakfast scramble. Was okay. Not very flavorful. Bland coffee. Husband had orange juice that he... More

Without a doubt this is the best place in Eastport for breakfast. From the usual eggs, ham, bacon, etc. you can order the smoked salmon, eggs benedict or the veggie benedict. There's daily breakfast specials and the service is excellent.
