We decided to try the Maine Diner while vacationing in Wells after watching a great review on the Phantom Gourmet. Once again the Phantom gourmet steers us wrong (Guessing that the Maine Diner advertises on the PG and buys their good reviews as usual). First of all, you would expect an extensive menu at a diner. Not the case here. Next, the eating area is small and crowded and we were sat at a tiny table between the bar and booths with traffic flying by in both directions the entire time. Now the food. Codfish cakes can only be described as a coaster-sized deep fried mashed potato pancake. Chowder came out slightly warmer than room temperature. Beans were okay. Mac and cheese was okay but not very flavorful and I ended up adding Tobasco. Portions were adequate. We're not big portion people so that was fine with us. But for folks who like to eat until they they can't stand up and take a doggie bag home, you might be disappointed. Blueberry pie desert was fine. Again, nothing special. The one positive was our waitress. She was very sweet and accommodating and service was fast. In summary, if you are expecting a real diner like the ones in New Jersey for instance, this is not even close. The Maine Diner is nothing special.
