Went there for breakfast. The place has strong reputation for being really good and really "Mainely". I agree with that. I got MYLES HENRY DOWNEAST BENEDICT, and it was amazing, especially cod cakes. Considering that it was only $9.95, that is a double winner! Nice atmosphere and great service too!

Had moderate expectations based on other reviews. This was a pleasant experience. Friendly, efficient service, good food. Fish cakes were crispy fried, though more potato than fish. Beans were rich and full of bacon. Turkey dinner was a diner classic. Ample servings, tasty fare, good value.

We love the Maine Diner and always make at least one stop there when visiting Ogunquit. This time, we stopped twice, and are so happy we did! We had their "Daily Special" of Chicken A La King and it was the BEST ever - white meat chicken and vegetables served over a HUGE biscuit. Absolutely delicious!

This diner is small and crowded and we almost left! It actually was only a 10 minute wait and once seated service was fast and efficient. We both had the clam chowder and a lobster roll. Outstanding!!! Prices very reasonable, diner atmosphere and great food!!!!

If the Maine Diner spent as much time improving the food as they do advertising a former visit from Guy Fieiri this place may be worth it. The "Triple D" (lobster pie, seafood chowder and codfish cake) was a dry and tasteless blend of lobster meat and cracker crumbs served with butter in a tiny stoneware dish for $35. The... More

Went here because of the DDD visit and review. Two people had the lobster pie and were disappointed. Only lobster and bread crumbs and not much lobster. The lobster was also quite chewy and it is pricey. The crab cakes were good but not much crab meat. However the mashed potatoes were excellent.

We tried the other two most recommended breakfast places and came back to the Maine Diner. The quality of the food, the reasonable prices, and the friendly service brought us back. I ordered the aces every morning (1 egg, 1 bacon, 1 sausage, 1 blueberry pancake w maple syrup) and was very pleased.

This is our 2nd time eating there and it wasn't good this time either. We decided to give it another chance and we will not be going back. I thought breakfast was an easy meal but they didn't cook my eggs correctly and the potatoes were chewy. Bacon was cooked properly but overall I've had much better. Our first time... More

We never leave Maine without visiting the Maine Diner in Wells. This year we had lunch with friends from South Portland. There are so many different choices one can make here that nobody can ever be unhappy. Our server, Juanita did a great job and everyone's food was perfect. My wife and I will be sure to return again next... More

My husband and I stopped here on a recent trip to Maine and ordered the lobster pie with mashed potatoes and slaw, lobster Mac and Cheese and seafood chowder to split. The lobster pie was a bit dry, but the potatoes (REAL) and slaw were delicious as well as the "Yankee" corn muffin. The seafood chowder was also delicious and... More
