The restaurant has been there for a long time, good food, friendly service, homemade pies or desserts should make you happy. I was not so impressed with the desserts as I am diabetic and didn't really find anything on the menu that would have fit the bill, but my guests LOVED theirs. Parking can be tricky, so be careful, the... More

The cheddar wurst was great. Same for blueberry pancakes. Classic diner. Friendly staff. Ginger cookies and molasses donuts to go a winner.

You walk in and suddenly it's it's the 60's! Stools at the counter, booths and tables and that great smell of fresh cooking. Moody's has been around for since the 20's and serves everything you expect from a true diner. The staff immediately bring coffee and a welcome smile / chat. Going north from Boston or Portland it's a must... More

Moody's was good..... 30 years ago but other than maybe a pie, it's nothing you'd write home about other than you can say you've been to a diner that's in all the tour books. I have gotten where If I'm going to go out for dinner and pay then I want something good. Over cooked canned food isn't my idea... More

We came here for breakfast w/ 3 adults and two kids. Awesome breakfast!! Waitstaff was friendly and speedy! It wasn't terribly crowded when we went because it was midweek. They keep the coffee coming and breakfast was perfect!!

We enjoyed a late lunch with friends after a long busy day. The food was served hot and tasted delicious. The the staff was friendly and accommodating. My dessert was fantastic, I had the Pumpkin Whoopie and loved it. We will return again.

While driving US 1 in Maine, my wife insisted on stopping at this eatery for some blueberry pie. WOW is the only way I can explain it. They make their own pies and make over 60 a day. It's down home cooking at its best

I heard a lot of hype about this diner before going. The building was charming and the staff was friendly. My crab roll and sweet potatoes were as expected with the highlight of my meal being the strawberry and rhubarb pie to finish. Not a bad stop.

This is such a grand throwback and the food is great. Had franks, beans and brown bread and a western sandwich. Can't find that many places. They expanded and can seat 108 people. Had to wait 15 minutes but it was worth it.

Thank mpd
