Hidden gem

2 blocks from the Holiday Inn where we stayed. This place is a tiny gem! We had to check it out simply because of recent controversy, but were delighted. 5 booths and 5 or 6 stools at the counter and a tiny kitchen but a huge menu. Took a bit for the food but well worth the wait, everything... read more

When you are on a family vacation, you want to find a place to enjoy good food and the company of your family. Unfortunately, this diner is not family friendly and does not like children in the establishment. I am sure you can find other places that are yummy and family friendly!

I had to stop by on my way out of town to see what all the hubbub was about. I have to honestly say that I was not really impressed. The food was, albeit inventive, your standard greasy spoon. The prices are a bit high. The service was okay but not stellar and really, the owner is as she portrays... More

We were visiting friends in Maine and stopped in here on the way to the airport. Loved the grilled raspberry muffin & tasty eggs. Husband had delicious French Toast and friend loved the spinach omelet. Most entrees $5-$8 and portions are huge. Be advised that the place is tiny with counter seating & a few small booths all in the... More

Took a day trip to Maine to Maine and had to stop here to see what this place was like. Glad I did! Sat at the counter and found the staff very welcoming. Breakfast was really good and at a reasonable price.Will come back again!

I stayed in beautiful Maine two weeks ago and I visited a small diner named MARCYS.. What a dive joint! We were hungry so we went in. What a regret! No greetings, just glares and nastiness. Order our meals with my kids and hubby and not only were we rushed and gawked at. When the food arrived I found a... More

Flew from Texas to the East Coast last Fall. Marcy's was one place we definitely were going to visit. Glad we did. Small, corner diner. Few tables, Delish food, and big portions! Don't leave if there is a wait. You won't find anything like this for miles. Trust me. The servers are friendly. Darla rocks this place. Definitely purchase a... More

Not only is the food the best ever- the service is outstanding and the owner is so cool. The place has such a great vibe. It is busy (at least every time I have been) But the food is worth the wait - don't be cranky - be prepared / informed. She is busy with good reason- everyone loves her... More

I had breakfast at this diner and it was not good, first the atmosphere was not friendly at all, seemed to be a place where if your not a regular you not wanted. As for my breakfast the pancakes were under cooked, eggs rubbery and overcooked. Long wait for food. The cook (owner I have sense discovered) was loud, rude... More
