This was our second try here...nothing fancy...large dining room table in the middle for 6...sit anywhere but open tables were not cleaned off. Simple order...eggs and bacon, eggs and sausage. one order of home fries (husband said potatoes were frozen style). Sausage was brown and serve and charge for 3 was $2.70...really? 90 cents for one link of brown and... More

We stopped by this diner before embarking on a fun day of shopping at the nearby outlets. I was skeptical because the place doesnt look well put together, furniture needs updating and well it seems like a hole in the wall kind of place. Boy was I wrong! The food was great and the best part was the very friendly... More

At first we thought we should give it a shot even though it was half full with very unhappy looking customers waiting for their food. Plus we were hungry and it was raining. We waited some time to get menus then again to have someone wait on us. It appeared to us that everyone who worked here had never worked... More

And there we sat........five minutes later, we finally received menus and shortly thereafter, coffee, whille listening to the waitress complain thta her help was 'out back'.... More

We had a lovely breakfast at the Fire Fly Diner. I enjoyed a delicious (and filling) vegetarian omelet and my husband had the scrambled eggs. Our meal lasted us until suppertime! The service was very good - the waitress was pleasant and attentive. We enjoyed a nice chat with the owner. The place was nothing fancy but very clean and... More

We waited to be seated, then waited for food for almost 45 minutes, overhearing staff apologize to us and everyone else for their lateness, as if they had not anticipated being busy on a Sunday morning. After a long wait, both of our eggs were not done correctly but so sick of waiting we ate what was brought. The prices... More

After seeing the sign for "breakfast all day," we zoomed into the parking lot! Probably the best diner breakfast I've ever had....perfect eggs, perfect potatoes, good coffee, etc. The waitress was personable, and just the right degree of attentive. The diner is nothing in the way of decor, but clean and bright and like something fun out of the 60s....or... More

Taking an early spring vacation in Southern Maine, I ate here twice within a week. The Fire Fly Diner is located in the Pine Tree Plaza on Route 1 north of the outlets. The first impression was of a neat, orderly place. All the setups on the tables and booths were lined up just so. The place was also quite... More
