Coming back from visiting the Marrett House in Standish, I had a late lunch here. I’ve eaten here several times and have always had good food. And, I always enjoy the classic 1950’s diner décor. See my previous review for details. This time, I ordered the Grilled Cheese Sandwich at $4.99. Tomato was 50 cents extra. With tax, the total... More

For the most part, Blast From the Past is an average diner. The food is OK and most of the service is good. There could be more choices on the menu and more home cooked meals rather than prepared cuisine. The extras such as sour cream for baked potatoes and cranberry sauce for chicken or turkey should not be charged... More

First let me say that we came on a Sunday and it was crowded. The wait staff was very sweet how ever the kitchen was extremely slow. We waited over an hour and 15 minutes and no food was delivered to our table. People sat 15 to 20 minutes after us had their food. Food finally arrived 1 hour and... More

I don't know if there is a new cook - but what they are sending out of the kitchen has been great recently. Living in Waterboro, there are not a lot of dining options. Like other reviewers we found the food to be sub-par in the past and tended to go here as a last resort. Recently, I have had... More

You have to appreciate the décor of this 50" style dinner. Granted it does serve your generic diner fare, but there are a few gems on the menu. And in the winter times they have customer appreciation night where it's 1/2 off your entrée and all you have to do is buy a drink. If I'm ever in the mood... More

After finishing a soccer game in the area, we stopped in here for a quick meal. Hostess was very friendly and sat us immediately. When the waitress arrived, we were ready to place our order. The time was 1:39. According to the menu, listed directly under the children's choices, breakfast was served until 2PM. The minute I attempted to order... More

We went last week, three of us, for lunch. They desperately need more help.The wait staff has to clean tables as well as wait... More

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. The waitress seemed like we were interrupting something important...maybe her smoke break I guess. From the beginning and throughout, just sub par service. Had a simple burger based on a poor experience at the Scarborough location. The burger was very bland and in general a below average meal. But the place was packed at... More

Lunch here with friends who live in the area was great. We all had affordable lobster rolls that had plenty of lobster, and just the right amount of mayo. Our waitress was outstanding. She quickly helped us clean up an accidental wine spill, and promptly replaced the glass with a fresh (complimentary) one. Decor of a 50's diner is excellent.... More

They should do better at washing their cups. The service could have been better as well. Atmosphere was nice and the prices were reasonable.
