Nice diner. Jute box at the diner table - a bit nostalgic. Good diner food. Premises are clean and staff friendly. Great family restaurant. I would definitely recommend making a stop if you're in the area.

When we checked into our motel and asked about dining options, we were told that if we were looking for fine dining in St. Stephens (a town on the Maine-New Brunswick border), we were out of luck. But we were also told that if we wanted good food, just try Carman's Diner just down the road. Great advice. The seafood... More

I just got a quick take out order of sausages and they were terrific. The service while I wanted was also great. Very friendly and helpful with regards to the area. Clean restrooms and just a general comfortable atmosphere.

Locals seem to go there a lot. Good diner food for a very reasonable price. Decent selection & friendly staff. They have jukebox selections on each table, just like the old days. Brought back memories!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Carman's. Great staff, nice atmosphere and yummy food. We ordered the seafood platter to share and was pleasantly surprised to see the food wasn't heavily battered. It had a light coating on it but not greasy. Homemade tartar sauce was good too and they gave us lots. Will go back if we are ever... More

Tasty home-cooked food with generous portions and friendly wait staff. Always a busy place. Very reasonably priced. Meals always hot and generous. Lots of variety. Very good seafood. We eat here often.

Our family of four stopped in for supper. My husband ordered the hot roast beef in the senior size and was disappointed that he did not order off of the regular menu. We all were more than pleased with our meals and the service was excellent. It's down home cooking at its finest.

Had breakfast several times here and never been disappointed. Home fries with onions are especially tasty. Will definitely be back!

We were on vacation and a local suggested this place. We both had the Fish and Chips. It was just average and served with frozen fries. Seemed to be a restaurant that the locals frequent but I would not go out of my way to visit. Good - just not special.

Simple food with a great taste. Easily accessible from the B&B. A casual-dress diner and a favorite of the locals.
