Nice little diner. Seafood chowder and muffins were very good. And I think the desserts are homemade. The chocolate cake was delicious.

Restaurant was filled with people but we were promptly seated and waited on. We had She-Crab soup that was awesome. Also crab cakes were very good. Would go there again.

Every time we go here the food is delicious. The service, however, is always always mediocore. We always feel like we are bothering the wait staff. If the service could match the food, we would recommend it more.

Every time we are in Maine we always visit the Maine Diner. Great food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you have to wait for a table (usually the case during prime season), visiting the souvenir shop is a great way to pass the time.

Been there several times for breakfast and once for lunch. Everything was cooked perfect. I am fussy about omelets, very good. Lobster roll is excellent.

I don't think that they use boxed eggs. I think that many restaurants cannot make good scrambled eggs, because they make them on the grill and scrambled eggs need to be made in a frying pan to turn out right.
