“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

J's diner was a great little place to eat dinner. The food was good and the drinks were great. Loved the frozen raspberry & peach margaritas! The first time we went we didn't have the best service, but the second time was excellent! Guess it depends on your waiter/waitress. Price of meals were fair.

“Really good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying at as a nice place to eat. My husband and I had eaten here about 5 years ago when we last stayed in Gorham and I remember it being very good then. We actually ordered in. They don't deliver but it was only a 2 minute drive from the hotel so we didn't mind going to pick it up. The food was really good and was ready to go when I arrived. It was still warm too which is always a plus because not all places are like that. I would recommend this place and would go back there to eat again if ever in the area.

“Unexpected excellence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

In town for one night, our innkeeper recommended Mr Pizza and Libby's Bistro. J's looked more appealing, and we thought we would be in for average, tourist priced food. Never have we been more wrong! The food was bountiful, fresh and would have been right at home in a five star restaurant. I had the chicken with apple/pecan/cranberry chutney. My spouse had the spinach and crab stuffed haddock. All we could do was to keep saying "wow!"
Truly an experience worth repeating. Attentive staff, friendly attitude, unpretentious and as good a food as we've ever had. Just WOW!

A welcome port on a wet night. Food was good and a good price. Wine at $17 a bottle was good so can recommend this place

“never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Keep looking----- you wont find a good meal here---
I ordered a cup of Clam Chowder as an appetizer -- it came out with the meal and had a "funny" taste to it.
For an entree I had a southwestern salad toped with grilled steak.-- the salad part was reasonable but the steak was not edible -- very tough and grizzly
We also had $1.99 snuck in for 2 tiny (read less that half a piece of bread) garlic toast

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! there should be a no star rating
