Amonster a number of locals, a friend and I enjoyed two breakfast specials, both with scrambled eggs, one with French Toast and one with blueberry pancakes. Ample portions and cheery service. Got us on our way.

I've lived in Maine nearly all my life and neither myself or my family had ever been to Moody's! So one nice December day, we decided to take a road trip to Lincolnville (to buy coffee from our favorite roaster) and decided to stop off for breakfast. I've read some less than favorable reviews and everyone's entitled to their opinions,... More

Escaping the excessively warm days of a Tennessee winter, I convinced my significant other to join me on an adventure through Maine. Food equates fondly in my travels and Moody's diner was a fond memory of years gone by. After a ten hour flight, and even less sleep, we arrived to find the restaurant changed little since my last visit.... More

This is a diner. It was hectic, noisy, and crowded. The food and service were acceptable. I am glad we stopped because I now feel that I have experienced yet another quintessential Maine eating establishment. Moody's Diner is a legend! If you are ever on Route 1 in mid-coast Maine, stop and experience Moody's!

Moody’s Diner is a long time favorite of the locals and tourists alike. It sits right between Damariscotta and Rockland on Route One in Maine. Summer traffic means they will be very busy at times resulting in a wait. We stopped by on a recent Saturday in December for breakfast. The place wasn’t busy at all. While my wife liked... More

Long rashers of crispy bacon, wheat toast, 2 eggs over easy and lashings of coffee is just a perfect start to the day and at Moody's they serve it more perfect than usual. The only good thing about leaving Maine after our short stay is going back via Moody's Diner.

Considering the hype I was really expecting this restaurant to be better. Our service was okay, but the food came suspiciously quick which I honestly didn't like. The food was average, not exactly fresh or even had any love into it. Possibly all frozen or canned items. Probably the best thing they offer here is the pies, which actually taste... More

I love the way back machine, and this one will take you back. I only stopped for breakfast, so I can't say too much about bacon and eggs, they fit the bill, but it's always a privilege to share a little history. Friendly

We stopped her en route to Bar Harbor because we were hungry and a full parking lot in the middle of the afternoon had to mean good things. It sure did! This was one of my favorite discoveries of the trip!!! I got an open faced turkey sandwich and it was exactly what I wanted and was absolutely perfect! SO... More
