A wonderful piece of Maine culture. The lobster omelet was absolutely delicious - full of meaty lobster meat. Décor is rather plain but sweet, fast service, don't miss it. At least in the winter, with blizzard approaching, we could get in without the long summer Sunday wait.

We travelled a good two hours to try out this restaurant that we had seen was given high praise by the Phantom Gourmet television show. I had the lobster pie. It was made with no lobster tail because they had run out on a Sunday afternoon. They reduced the pie by $1.00. It had plenty of lobster meat inside, but... More

We stopped by on our trip back from Acadia. The perfect place to end our trip!!! Clam chowder was excellent, $3.50 for a cup! Both got the lobster roll, overflowing with lobster on a hot buttered hot dog roll, fresh picked lobster was awesome, one of the best I've ever had & I've had plenty! Can't wait to go back!

You're in Maine, so you think lobster. Don't automatically think "lobster roll", try their lobster club sandwich .👍👍👍Another great choice is the eggs Benedict. For an extraordinary finish have the blueberry pie, I've never had better.

Have eaten lunch and dinner at the Maine dinner and have been very pleased with the various menu offerings and the prices. Everything I have had has been very good especially their homemade corn muffins which are complimentary. However, last Saturday 4 of us went up for breakfast and we were ALL disappointed. Their portions are small and they use... More

Driving I 95 in Maine (who's the genius that thought 70 MPH would be a safe speed?) we get hungry. Abeam Wells, there is one choice, the Maine Diner. The quality of the food and the consistent superior service never wavers; therefore the review title. Thank you server Carol, you were busy squared yet you managed your work exceedingly well....
