Depending on time of day, can be hard to find a nice late afternoon meal (not to heavy, enough to hold to dinner), hence how we ended up at Moody's. Typical dinner in seating, décor, etc. Staff was very friendly and polite. Man locals were there which is always a good sign of a good restaurant. Had the lobster roll... More

Been hitting Moody's on the way to Camden for 40 years, and it hasn't changed much, except the prices have risen with the economy. Your want classic Maine fare? Chowder, beans and brown bread, and their homemade pies. Franks in the beans are an option, but their beans alone are special.

We stopped at Moody’s Diner for a late breakfast enroute to New Brunswick. The service was excellent, and the price for our meals was good if based only on the large portion sizes. However, the food was mediocre at best. The potatoes, as well as the scrambled eggs, were bland; the “extra crispy” bacon that I requested was barely crispy;... More

Stopped at Moody's for lunch while in Maine visiting relatives. Wow! The food was excellent and the service is great. It's an old fashioned diner - very cute and has a lot of history behind it. Glad we stopped.

We stopped here on our way north. There was quite a long line so we chose to sit at the counter. We enjoyed our lunch served by a very pleasant young lady.The pie case was right in front of us... all looked so tempting and seemed to by flying off the shelves. We did get a slice of raspberry pie... More

We were riding down the road, looking for someplace to eat lunch when we came upon Moody's with its parking lot packed full of cars and decided we wanted to try it. The waiting line moved quickly and the drinks were brought right away. We ordered sandwiches, which were delicious, and I got a Whoopie Pie, which was huge but... More

Had heard about Moody's so when we came across it on US 1, we stopped. The service was prompt even tho they were very busy. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable.

Stopped here for a quick breakfast on our way home to Long Island, NY The bacon and cheese on an English muffin and my wife's omelette were certainly acceptable (its kinda hard to screw up breakfast). Like other people who have eaten here, I also wonder what all the hype is about. Its just OK by me ... old building,... More

As usual, had a very good breakfast at Moody's recently, although this time the hash was overcooked and dry. Otherwise, food very good.

I really wanted to be wowed by this place, but honestly it was just so so. I loved the atmosphere, but the food was ok at best. A little disappointed because it does not live up to the hype.

Thank Barbara B
