It's all good...the food, the people, the prices

Just a great diner. What else can I say? In one sitting, the best blueberry ice cream I've ever had and the best corn muffin I've ever had; and my wife reports the best seafood chowder ever. I liked the corn muffin so much, I bought the mix at the gift shop next door. Plenty of food, prepared... read more

While traveling back home to northern Maine we wanted stop for dinner. Nothing too heavy as we still had a few hours left of driving. The Maine diner came to mind. My husband had a burger that was cooked just the way he ordered it. The onions rings were thin, crispy and delicious(the small size was more than enough as... More

Been here for breakfast and lunch. I usually go off season. Because i dont always like to wait. (Although this is very much worth the wait) Breakfast is excellent. Staff is always friendly and you can see many of them have been here many years. Food is always consistant. There is a reason this place is always busy. Great job!

This place is a must stop when driving up the Maine coast. The Clam Chowder is award winning and is out of this world. The Lobster Roll is also a must. Be prepared to wait to get a table, the diner is not very big and is very popular. The wait staff are very understanding and great.

What can I say about the legendary Maine Diner? Clean place, friendly & efficient servers, and the food....Have been going there when in area for 30 plus years (starting as a kid). Never fails to please. My husband & I got seated as we got in the door, even though they appeared busy. We had a traditional breakfast; eggs, toast,... More

a little expensive for a lunch at a dinner, even if it was a lobster roll. the food was good, coleslaw was great and the service was very friendly. A little slow from the kitchen.

The Maine Diner was terrible...the server was as bad as the food. I had the scallops, they were hard and greasy, my husband had a sandwich that was awful and my son did not eat his dinner because it tasted like "dirt"...We will never go back there...the only reason we went there in the first place was because the Fishermans...

Stopped by for breakfast on a Tuesday morning. Very large portions and excellent friendly service. Some of the best blueberry pancakes I have ever had. We all had breakfast and no missteps. Would return!
