Have been dining here for many years. Always had a good breakfast. Lots of breakfast combos and lots of locals dine here. We saw the Guy Fierie had dined here.

Walking into the Maine Diner for breakfast this morning was nostalgic. The staff greeted us & chatted with us like we were just there yesterday instead of a couple years ago (before we moved to FL). The decor was the same, some photos & items...More

It's a Monday morning and the place is not completely mobbed. Still a short wait, but there must be a reason. We dont like waiting to get into a restaurant so hadn't stopped here before. Great menu with plenty of choices at extremely reasonable prices....More

This is the second time trying this place, and it is average breakfast food. It is what you expect, nothing more. They have a variety of options, service is fast.

Enjoyed our dinner. I think that they have new cooks in the kitchen. The food came out fast and hot. All four of us said the food was very good. The cod cakes, kielbasa and mac n cheese all good. The waitresses here are awesome...More

OK so 100 miles round trip was a bit far to go for lunch but no complaints. Their lobster clubs are extraordinary.

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.
