I've been coming to the Maine Diner for years and it's been one of the highlights of my vacations in Maine. The food is great, and cheap compared to the surrounding restaurants, and there's so much variety on their menu there's always something new to try. My personal favorites are the clam chowder, lobster roll, and pulled pork sandwich. Try... More

Had a wonderful breakfast. Glad they were open on Easter. Got there early to beat a potential rush. Food was delicious, and the service was fast and friendly. I'll be back!

Have eaten there many times. Over the last few years the quality of the food has suffered some. Still a great place for breakfast. Clean, neat and well run. My granddaughter loves to sit at the "bar" when there is room.

After vacationing in Wells for 18 years, we are now spending full summers on the beach, and the Maine Diner never disappoints. For our family, breakfast is the favorite meal. "2's are wild" wins every time for the kids, but I crave the biscuits. The restaurant is run so very well. Everything SPARKLES. Don't forget to grab a bag of... More

Visited the Maine Diner for the first time and what a breakfast! First, the assortment of items on the menu is fantastic. Our server was very friendly and informative. I got blueberry pancakes, 2 perfectly cooked eggs, bacon and toast. Delicious. My husband had the Lobster Benedict minus the hollandaise. Superb meal! Our friends ordered the codfish cakes which are... More

My husband and I had a very nice breakfast. The service was exceptional. I had the lobster quiche which was served with fresh fruit and a warm corn muffin. He tried the Corned Beef Hash eggs Benedict. We left full and satisfied. Very happy with this meal.

Four of us had the small shrimp which they are now calling "Gulf" shrimp - we had asked for MAINE shrimp, AND THESE ARE NOT! They were rubbery and tasteless - frozen. The fried coating is heavy bread crumbs and tasted bad. The same coating was on the onion rings - NO ONE liked them either. Several people were happy... More

We came here in April, which is the off season for the beach area, and the diner was still crowded. I could see why, because the food was great, the atmosphere was fun and the service was friendly. Food was a little more expensive than some of the other diners around, but worth it.
