Friendly and very helpful wait staff. Lived up to the Diner name. Plenty of food, "home" made. Quickly served but did not feel hurried to leave.

You can't beat the food or the workers at this high street location. Martha and her crew are so openly friendly. I love to go there during the week when it is not quite so crowded. Weekends can be a very busy time this place...More

Small place at one end of a small mall, doesn't look like much, but busy times when the locals eat. Best to go before or after the lunch hour, not during. 50s decor, looks it has been there since the 60s. Restrooms not for ADA...More

Great diner food, fine service, they move fast but don't rush you out. I have eaten here dozens of times and always find it just fine and regular. Nothing fancy, good old diner cooking!

Wow. What a great breakfast. The corned beef hash was delicious. Home made toast topped it all off. My wife enjoyed a huge pancake.

The best omelets I have had in years. Good toast-- well toasted, buttered well... sounds easy but all too often it's overlooked. Try the specials and ask what the choices of bread for toast are.

Ate here twice while visiting the Bar Harbor area. Both times we had a short wait. Seemed to me that lots of locals eat here. On the second visit, i tried the special with apples and ricotta cheese. WOW! It was wonderful and the portion...More
