The Maine Diner is s true Maine experience! Everything is homemade and delicious. You need to go and it's worth the wait! The Maine Gift Shop is great and they have the best t shirts!

An old fashion diner. Great home cooked meals. The staff were caring and fun. The prices are really fair, they do not over charge, even being a famous diner.

Don’t be deceived. This place is the real thing. A super opportunity to savour Maine hospitality and authentic food. No fancy artistic plates just good homemade food. This is not a tourist trap, this a locals favourite for consistent good food. Try the real Maine...More

As an avid fan of DDD, we had to try the Maine Diner! Wow, just wow! The lobster benedict was to die for, as were the pancakes! We left fully satiated and seriously needed to walk this off!

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.
