Friendly, helpful, easy going staff, in a Diner that provides a wide range of classy local food. The place was spotless. Thanks Debs for a true family breakfast experience. The pancakes were sooo big, we needed climbing boots.

Had a great brunch at Deb's in Waldoboro. Very true to the style of a greasy spoon. The sausage and gravy was an experience in and of itself.

I Love a good breakfast! With perfectly cooked eggs, excellent grilled home fries with perfectly blackened onions, home made bread and good thick hardy bacon Deb's hits on all the requirements!

Love Deb's- lots of local sourcing for their food, biscuits to die for, great specials every day. Service is fast and friendly. Desserts are worth saving room for.

We stopped in as the reviews said to... I had a nice biscuit with egg and cheese, my husband, chowder with big piece of fresh grilled (bit over grilled) haddock. Very nice not exceptional but jolly nice. We sat at the bar, could see the goings on. The hygiene was less than desirable. Pans were clogged black with food from... More

Have only had breakfast there but it was excellent. Legit local diner. Great homemade hash. Great service, reasonable prices. I think we were the only non-locals there; do the math.

Excellent breakfast spot - make sure to order your homefries deep fried. The link sausage was particularly excellent.

Deb's is what real diners should be. Better than Moody's up the road. Homemade everything- loaves of bread rising on the stove top in the morning. Locals sitting at tables before the start of the work day. And, of course, Deb, the owner and cook, warm and welcoming. She has just opened a second diner in Bristol Mills and we... More

We stopped here because Moody's diner was closed due to water pipe brake. They were ready to close but stayed open for us. The food was very good and the service was pleasant! This was July 2014.

I am an addict to the homemade hash that is full of root vegetables (that helps me justify the calories a hash can provide). Deb's have award winning biscuits. A breakfast or a lunch with a specials board that meets everyone's needs. Inexpensive, local color.
