We ate one meal here in September - wonderful staff, delicious food, if you like seafood try the seafood chowder - very filling and made to order. It is a throwback to the 50s with a mini jukebox at your table. We arrived after 7pm due to the time change between Maine and New Brunswick. Even though closing time is... More

We enjoy going to Carmen's for breakfast, good coffee, enjoy their scramble eggs and ham. They also have big breakfasts with pancakes and home fries. Greats chowders and turkey dinner.

On the way through had a bite in there. Great atmosphere, food was decent and a nice change from the fast food restaurants. Would eat at again if I was paying through

Recommended to us by the hotel. We do not like chain fast food so went here being told that everything was home cooking. It may have been however it tasted like frozen foods warmed up. Not impressed but not a lot to chose from in this town.

We stopped in on a recommendation from the staff at our hotel, which was a couple of blocks down the street. A family run diner for 60 years, and the decor was 1950's period. I felt like the newest car in the parking lot should have been a fifties sedan. I love places like this...original, not faked up. I ordered... More

I have been going to Carmen's Diner for many years and not once have I left disappointed! Courteous service and awesome food! Not many times have I had room for the dessert!

Very good spot for dinner. Was very busy when we got there but was served fast and didn't take too long for dinner. The fish burger was my second favorite out of all the fish burgers (which was a lot) on my vacation. The freshly made raisin pie was delicious.

We arrived late but were served well and with good food. They have a new senior menu which was terrific. We liked it all.

Stopped there for lunch on the way back from PEI - easy location off highway. The waitress was friendly - the food (turkey sandwich) was definitely homemade and the milk shake was soothing. Someone in our party had a hot dog and they said they were not impressed but the homemade stuff all looked good. The prices were good -... More

Both AAA and Trip Advisor reviewers indicated the food here would be excellent. It was bland, flavorless. I even had to put salt and pepper in the clam chowder. If you're looking for lots of food for the money, this is your place. If you're looking for tasty, keep driving.
