After seeing the advertisements for the Maine Diner on local Boston tv stations over the years, I was very excited to try the Maine Diner. Today's business trip to Maine afforded me the opportunity. The diner is pretty basic on the outside, with ample parking and an adjacent gift store. The gift store should have been a hint. Upon walking... More

We try and get here at least a couple times a year. And we do not live in Maine. Good diner food, great breakfast served all day, plus many traditional New England favorites. We have never had a bad meal here. Friendly staff and good service add to the good food to make this a great place for a meal.... More

Stopped for lunch. Lobster Pie......OMG!!!!!! Service was excellent as was the food. We did have a 20 minute wait but it was worth it. Went back for breakfast of Eggs Benedict. Not disappointed.

This location is advertised very heavily. It's a tourist trap! Way too much fried food! Spouse & I had the "Clam-A-Rama." Consisted of fried clams, a fried clam cake, clam chowder & two vegetables. All of it was tasteless. The glasses of water were good! Atmosphere not too good. Plenty of parking. Clean. Service was good & speedy. $53.25, including... More

This was our second visit. I will say up front that my biggest disappointment was not their fault. I just ordered the wrong thing. My eyesight isn't always the best and I misread the menu and ordered the cold lobster roll rather than the hot one with butter- totally my fault. As far as cold lobster rolls go it was... More

We ate breakfast twice and went back for lunch one day. Once again, the food was really good and the service was superb. When we got there my daughter called with... More

This is a very good place to eat. We ate here for breakfast 2 mornings in a row. Their Texas toast was the best. I would recommend this to every one.

They rave of cornbread muffins....We have real cornbread in Mississippi. Seafood Chowder was Not chowder but simply seafood soup. Lobster roll was bland . $70 for 4 was worth $40. Son got grilled chicken that was over cooked. French Fries or good though!

I've had breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert here and there are highlights to each. The Blueberry pancakes start the day (my wife fancies the biscuits) followed by Seafood chowder and lobster roll for lunch that are the best anywhere followed by Turkey dinner or their signature Lobster pie with a cup of Seafood Chowder and Indian Pudding for desert.
