I had heard a lot of good things about this restaurant but I didn't see that any of them were true. We had called ahead because we were a party of six. I was told no problem over the phone but when I arrived I was treated like somewhat of an inconvenience. We were seated in the time frame that... More

Very friendly staff who seated me quickly I have eaten here many times - some excellent New England style basics as well as general American comfort foods- burgers, spaghetti and meatballs, etc. Desserts are all home made. On my last visit I had the baked haddock with white wine sauce- excellent!

Celebrated Father's Day with their Sunday Buffet. The China Dine-ah continues to have great food and top notch service. We have enjoyed eating here since it opened 7 years ago. They now have a lounge with outside dining, too. Their full menu is on their website.

We love Diners. While this one is not a classic in the setting sense, it meets with most other criteria. The atmosphere reminds of a place where sawdust on the floor would be perfect. The menu is full of things that you'd eat at a place like this. We enjoyed our food. It wasn't the best but was indeed very... More

The Din-ah attracts a lot of hearty eaters from Central Maine and 'summ-ah" people who don't feel like cookng. It serves up standard fare in a friendly atmosphere. I'd rather eat my own cooking.
