I've been coming to this restaurant for many years, and I have yet to have a complaint! Food is great, staff is great, atmosphere is comfortable. What more can be asked for?

We have been coming to Wells Beach Maine for 30+years and the Maine Diner is always several of our "vacation meals", breakfast for the eggs benedict and dinner for the lobster pie.Can't wait for summer 2015 to get back!

The eggs and cod cakes Benedict were fantastic! We would definitely go back more often but the coffee is not that great and the homefries are always cold. Though service was adequate, it's a hit or miss, never extraordinary. Long lines in the summer, great diner ambiance, and don't forget to visit the gift shop.

Enjoyed breakfast at The Maine DIner while staying overnight in Maine. Breakfast was excellent, enjoyed my blueberry pancake and eggs with bacon. Wished the coffee was a little better. We arrive early so had no problem getting table not always the case... In season you normally have a wait. Must try if visiting Maine.

Maine diner is a must go to place when traveling southern Maine. Take Wells exit off the pike and in a few minutes you are there. Their menu is varied with outstanding selections of seafood and American favorites for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is fantastic so come early as the lines can get long in the warm months.
