The Maine Diner is a great place for breakfast. They have the usual foods but some with their spin as well. Two of chose the almond-encrusted French toast and two chose the Irish Breakfast. Of course service was great and very friendly. This is a highly recommended place to go by locals. During the off-season, breakfast gets very crowded starting... More

The Maine Diner seems to be busy a lot. We had about a 5 minute wait for a table. It is a small diner so the tables are very close together. In fact, my chair blocked entrance/exit to a booth. Actually, it was okay. It was an excuse to be polite to people and let them in/out and to start... More

Drove by on a drizzly off-season Tuesday @ 2:00 PM and it was packed! Obviously, this is the place locals eat as well as travelers. My partner had the turkey dinner, which he pronounced "suburb!" - everything is real, no processed turkey, gravy or mashed potatoes. My chicken salad was fresh tasting & quite good as well. Service is prompt,... More

We had breakfast there. Its a quaint place that provides good food and fast service. This is a hot spot in the area and we wanted to try the breakfast there. We were not disappointed. If you are in the area try it.

My husband enjoyed the Indian pudding. Good service and... More

I've been to the Maine Diner dozens of times, and it's always great. They're open for breakfast until about 9PM. We've been there for breakfast, brunch, lunch, early dinner, late dinner and just for desserts and coffee. Don't miss this one...it's a gem!

Every vacation needs a diner. This was our diner, and we kept returning. My partner had the blueberry pancakes more than once. I enjoyed the meat loaf. The open faced roast beef was made with deli meat. I did not care for the Indian Pudding, but he loved it. Overall a great place to eat.

Table space is small, little room for dishes. Food is average, service is average, prices are average. There is a good selection of items on the menu. Better than a fast food chain diner. Have eaten here several times in the past 3 years, will probably eat here again.
