Quality ingredients and well prepared. They have booths and tables and a lunch counter. Everything was filled so we ate at the counter. The interaction with the staff was like I had been there before--so friendly. Many locals and almost everyone was called by name. I would eat there again in a second--Really impressed with the food and staff! They... More

The food was first class, we had eggs and home fries. I have cheese with ham, my wife had bacon. The bacon had an amazing flavor. The staff was friendly, but had to ask for a refill on my tea and twice for water refill for my wife. Very pleasant experience, I just like a more attentive server.

The food at Martha's Dinner is made with love and the very freshest ingredients! The staff are fast and friendly and everything is served with a smile. We had a late breakfast of a Hash Omelette, the Ellsworth Omelette with spinach, mushrooms and swiss cheese, a Ham and Cheese Omelette, and Eggs Benedict with ham. All four of our meals... More

We went for breakfast. My first disappointment was that the diner did not look like the old fashioned trailer like diner I was expecting. The waitress was interesting and quirky. The food was disappointing. I will not go again.

If you happen to be in Ellsworth, Maine and you don't go to Martha's Diner, you've made a big mistake. I won't call it a "greasy spoon" because that has a bad connotation but it is a place full of good food, friendly staff and a lot of Lucille Ball memorabilia. No big screen TV just 50s and 60s music... More

The food here is always perfect, the staff always friendly, and the atmosphere has that classic 60s diner feel to it, I love eating breakfast here.

Our friends recommended that we stop and have breakfast here. Martha's Diner is tucked away in a strip mall, so you have to look for it. When you walk in, you are thrown back to the 50's/60's. The decor is fun. Our server was very friendly and very professional. Each of us had a pick off the special board. Outstanding!... More 

Thank John and Rose P
