Staying in the area sightseeing and ate here four times - two breakfasts and two dinners. Breakfast was very good with generous portions, we had omelettes and blueberry pancakes. Make sure to get a doughnut heated ... Excellent! The muffins are wonderful too. Very busy popular place but good service and friendly staff. We would definitely stop here again.

Very busy place. Been here since 1927. Food is pretty straightforward Maine cuisine. The lobster stew had plenty of lobster meat in it. For those who've never had it before, it's like chowder but much more watery. It's life a bowl of warm milk with seafood broth and lots of lobster. Pretty good.

Been in the same family for more than 75 years and still have some 15 family members still working there.

The turkey salad sandwich with cole slaw and sweet potato fries hit the spot perfectly, though the coup de gras was the walnut pie with whipped cream (as if) that I took

The diner has been family owned since 1927. They specialize in Pies. The day of the week menu makes Thursday my favorite with pea soup, johnny cake and the ever hard to find Indian Pudding. And real whipped cream. Local Maine made ice cream! Out for a meal, anytime of day, a piece of pie and coffee, a quick and... More

We had been wanting to try out this diner for decades, having vacationed in Maine often, but never were close enough to make it work. Finally we were in the area and made plans to go there specifically, timing it just right to enjoy what we had heard was a fabulous eating experience...and maybe it was because of all the... More

this place has been here forever food is pretty good Heard some bad things about the owner but I suppose that need not be part of this review. I'd continue to stop here. But it is a little to expensive they do get a lot of business right on hwy 1 in waldoboro. Maine.

So it's Sunday afternoon, you're on a road trip and in the market for brunch. A stop at Moody's, the classic US Route One road house diner in Waldoboro, Maine seemed like just the ticket. Perusing the enormous menu with classic favorites, fried seafood and breakfast all day presented a conundrum of epic proportions -- especially considering the prudent intent... More

Just what you would expect of a 100 year old classic roadside diner. Everything is very decent--nothing on the wow scale. Don't expect anything, leave your attitude at the front door(Maine pre-requisite) just enjoy the people, food and experiences.

The saying, "Moody's Diner - where old friends meet" is SO true! A unique history, great food, very reasonable prices, and wonderful pies! My husband loves the 4-berry pie, and I love the strawberry rhubarb! Whether you're going by yourself or you're meeting up with friends, Moody's is a great place to go. Nothing super fancy but the meals are... More
