Really loved it!

Small space and cozy. Quick service and good selection. The food is good, and I will be back for sure. No screaming kids, which was a plus!

The diner has been a staple in Portland since the 1930s. Get there on Sunday before 10:00 to avoid the wait. Rustic with character and fantastic food. Portions are huge and perfectly cooked. If you like hot sauce they bring you a bucket with 8 choices. If that's not enough they have a dozen more to choose from. Service was... More

Tiny place with good basic food and enough sass to make it interesting. If you liked the old Durgin Park in Boston, you'll like this place. Good food at reasonable price, but coffee at $2 was a bit high. The amazing thing is the tiny open kitchen in this place. Brought back memories of lunch counters long gone.

Great place to eat breakfast. Has that great old school diner feel and I'd eat here everyday if I could. Don't miss out on one of their great muffins crisped on the griddle with some butter slathered on. The line can get long, but it moves pretty fast and it's definitely worth the wait.

We traveled out to Maine to try Marcy's Diner food, a 23 hour drive. We visited 21-23Nov2015 and ordered many of the daily specials, to see if anything that we ordered would be prepared badly. Omg, ALL OF THE FOOD WAS AWESOME! The homemade muffins are enough to fill a person up and have fresh ingredients. The pancakes are HUGE!... More

We finally had the opportunity to dine at Marcy's Diner in Portland. There was a wait as it was Sunday morning and quite crowded. There are maybe 5 or 6 booths and a long counter with seating. We ended up at the counter and loved it. Fast service, although no one made anyone feel rushed. A nice menu with something... More

The energy at Marcy's adds to the diner experience. The two servers work the crowd with ease, efficiency, and a great sense of humor. The food is abundant and flavorable. Next time we visit Portland, we will certainly have breakfast at Marcy's again!

We ate at marcys at 10 am on a Friday. We expected to walk in, sit down and eat but it was not to be. It was busy, really busy and we had to wait for a seat and this was mid morning! The waitstaff was excellent as was the food. I had a vegetarian omelet that was just yummy!!!... More

I wish I could select more "months visited" as my BF & I have been regulars since they opened. Darla & Doug are a great pair. When people from out town visit, we take them there & we have yet to have a dissatisfied guest. The potato chip french toast I my surprise fave. We were there soon after the... More

This is a very small diner and very busy. We waited for 30 or 40 minutes, but it was well worth the wait. My wife and I shared a grilled muffin and it was awesome. The breakfast was huge and cooked to perfection! The 4 of us had a great experience and can't wait to try it again!
