The wait to get into Maine Diner is very, very long. And it really isn't worth it. Clam cakes lacked flavor. Pancakes were simply bad. As a diner, they try to do everything, but they don't do any of it well. Average, at best.

Sometimes you have to wait to get a table, But it is worth it. You can get breakfast all day, Diner fare you would expect, and many seafood meal Everyone I talked to had a great meal. The cornmeal muffins are worth the trip

The food was excellent. definitely suggest the Lobster pie or the lobster club. We've heard there are always line, however we did not have any issues at 5pm. We were able to get a table without any wait at all. The service was great.

While the meal I had was decent, it wasn't the "world class" repast that I'd come to expect from all the hype beforehand. My friends got breakfast dishes that were very good while I tried the haddock because the "thick" haddock of New England is...More

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.
