The blueberry pie was okay but the strawberry rhubarb was delicious! I'd almost stop there on the way back for my own piece.

This is like having dinner at home, only better. Excellent food, great menu and reasonable prices. Down home feeling is worth the trip to this diner in mid-coast Maine.

I met a friend for lunch at Moodys for my first visit. On a weekday, it wasn't crowded. The food was wonderful--of course it is diner food, not Michelin 3-Star food. The place is clean, the service quick and pleasant. I had meatloaf, one of my favorite comfort food dishes. I can truthfully say it was the best meatloaf I... More

Our family spends in total a couple of months each year in Maine. One of my "treats" whenever we go up is at least one visit to Moody's Diner. Saturday the 29th of November, we went shopping for a live Christmas tree for our Maine residence and of course, somehow, wound up for a late lunch at Moody's. As always,... More

I traveled 200 miles to have a slice of one of their almost a dozen different homemade pies. This time it was coconut cream pie. It was lunch so I started with a bowl of haddock chowder and a toasted cheese sandwich. My wife had the three berry pie and a bowl of a delicious tomato soup. It was wonderful... More

I just started a very restricted diet and visited Moody's diner. They offer amazing home cooked food. I thouhgt a lot about what to ask for and then... More

I wanted to love breakfast at Moody's because it looked so retro but couldn't find anything to rave about here. The eggs were pretty good but I found the pancakes to be crisp on the outside and leaden inside. Our server was very friendly and it us obviously a place locals enjoy.

Was expecting great seafood since it is soooo close to fresh catch. Couldn't have been more disappointed though....ordered the rather expensive seafood platter. Lacklustre deep fried clam, shrimp, oyster....the fish strips were the worst ! Husband's fish was soggy as well. Don't bother stopping here. You will be underwhelmed.

Let me start by recommending you NOT go for a late lunch on Columbus day. Huge queue of people waiting to be seated. The locals I was visiting were extremely surprised at the crowd. After being seated, service was good and the food was as expected. Definitely a diner experience.

I hadn't been to Moody's in years, but today I was ahead of schedule and decided to stop for something quick. Followed a woman who obviously is a regular...to me, typically a good sign. After looking at the large menu, I asked about their soups. Decided on the fish chowder. I'm from a part of the country that doesn't have... More
