Lunch here was a great break during a driving trip. We were greeted and seated immediately. My wife said she enjoyed the best Rueben sandwich she's ever eaten -- and that's really saying something if you've ever had a Reuben at The Brothers in Danvers, Mass. My BLT also was very good, but the Elm Tree's homemade onion rings deserve... More

We stopped in for lunch on a day trip to Houlton and we enjoyed our meal. We found the dinning room a little on the noisy side, especially when others would push in or out there chairs. Definitely will stop in for lunch again when in Houlton.

Stopped here with friends before crossing the border to head back home after visiting millinocket. Great little diner, nice and bright. I had the Sunrise skillet and it was delicious although a pretty large un-finishable portion but priced fine so that great. Service was efficient and patient even though they were pretty busy.

Really good home cooked food! Huge portions! Extremely attentive to my needs as I am Celiac, although they were not serving breakfast any more they were more than happy to make me an omelet and took the time to assure me that it would be cooked in a separate skillet on not on their grill, waitress was well informed and...

My wife and I enjoyed a Tuesday evening dinner here. The daily specials were great (I enjoyed grilled swordfish), the vegetables were well prepared, and the desserts were delicious and huge. Both of us saved half of our desserts to enjoy later in the week. We enjoyed dining here.

We eat here three or four times a year when we are in town. sometimes it is excellent and you couldn't ask for anything more and other times it is horrible. The last time we were there we got burgers that were... More

I am a retired veteran and when my wife & I visited your place and asked about a military discount I was told that you do not offer it. I have heard that you do offer it to law enforcement thou. I have my military ID to prove my service. We do enjoy coming to eat there.

I like the Elm Tree Diner and I make a point of dropping in for lunch most every time I'm in Houlton. Even if I don't have lunch, I'll pick up their Whoopie Pies to take home. The food is always good and very consistent in quality. Staff are great and give good service. My favourites are BLT, Western or... More
