The best seafood stew ever. I could eat just this and be happy. Cod cake was really good and the lobster pie was... outstanding as well, way more lobster than any other place. Only drawback was the tent seating was a touch hot.read more

Service was great, our waitress was super sweet and attentive. Food however......was another matter. We ordered two... burgers for the kids cooked well, and they were charred pucks that nobody would touch. Fries were okay, not bad. My sister got clams that were good, and my brother in law got the crab cakes which he enjoyed. Fried fish was so overdone it was dry & flavorless. My meal was the triple D - the chowder was PHENOMENAL, definitely worth it. The lobster pie wasn't my cup of tea, which I think was just my personal preference instead of the fault of the cooks. The codfish wasn't very good, texture and flavor was off, but my brother in law liked it. Overall, great service but pretty average food. I'd recommend the chowder, crab cakes & clamstrips. And maybe the hamburgers provided you don't order them well!read more

Food was amazing!! You can tell it's fresh, the number of cars in the parking lot - with many different states - should... be a good indication. Ordered the seafood chowder, which had scallops, shrimp, lobster and oysters, and lobster roll. It wasn't very good hot with butter, but that's not how I prefer it. Large serving of lobster. I works absolutely recommend!read more

We decided to stop here on our way back from Boston and so glad we did. The menu has everything for everyone. I got... the open faced roast beef and it was the best one I have ever had. The meat was cooked perfectly. Everyone else's meal was cooked perfect and tasted great. Also our waitress was very good, kind and patient. Can't wait to go back!read more

First off food was amazing! No complaints at all! The lobster Benedict was perfect! Only reason for the 4 stars is... because of the wait to get in. Which is understandable because of the excellent food. Though it was extremely hot that day. And eating outside was not the best choice I made. To make the best of this experience get there early and eat inside even if you have to wait. Thanks Maine diner!! 💚read more

Stopped in for breakfast on my way north. Enjoyed eating outdoors and hope the tent dining option remains for the near... term. Early spring was fun! Deuces Wild and two BIG blueberry pancakes. Coffee was good too!read more

The definitive stop for true Maine food served in a locally owned restaurant. I didn't even know that lobster in a... breakfast dish was a thing. For the sweet tooth and a side of savory, try the Almond Crusted French Toast with true maple syrup and locally made sausage links.read more

We had a delicious breakfast. I enjoyed a lobster omelette and Paula had french toast covered with crushed almonds. ... It was so good we returned for dinner. We both had the lobster pie. I really enjoyed the seafood chowder with mine. Service was excellent both times!read more

My husband wanted to give me something special for my birthday. That something special was the “special” shipped... overnight from The Maine Diner in Wells, Maine. I was blown away when I opened our package as they had made the food order extra special! It not only had 2 lobster pies and seafood chowder, but also included 2 lobster rolls, blueberry pancake batter, Maine Diner mugs and salt water taffy! This was their new package that they have named the “04090” (their zip code). We truly felt like we were spending the weekend in Maine! On Friday, we had the lobster rolls, on Saturday we ate the lobster pies, and on Sunday we had the seafood chowder! I served the blueberry pancakes Saturday, Sunday and Monday! The package and containers arrived in pristine condition! Everything was absolutely delicious! This was the first time I had their blueberry pancakes and they were so light and fluffy! Loved them. The mugs and taffy were the frosting on the cake! Thank you so much to Jim and the Maine Diner family! You made my “milestone” birthday something I will always remember!read more

Staff were very attentive and easygoing, and the food was to die for. Only complaint was my medium steak ended up being... closer to medium rare but I'm not going to dock a star for that. Overall, wonderful experience with the family and would definitely recommend if you haven't had food in the area before. Very large variety of options on the menu is a huge plus as well.read more

Just drove up from Connecticut to stay in Ogunquit for the weekend. First stop was to The Maine Diner. Wife had the a... Triple D (Cup of their famous seafood chowder, lobster pie and cod cake). I had a bowl of the seafood chowder and their lobster pie. The seafood chowder comes with a corn muffin and the lobster pie comes with choice of either coleslaw or carrots and choice of potato. I got the coleslaw and French Fries. The meal for both of us was incredible. We have been here before and this place never disappoints. Quality and staff are always top notch.read more

Very good experience. The staff was attentive and really hustling. Food was New England comfort fare. Really good... value. So many items to select from to breakfast, chowders, roast dinners to seafood platters. The constant stream of customers was a sign that they satisfy customers and are an anchor business in the local community. Left happy and full.read more

Nice little diner off of Route One. The food was good and the service was fast. My only complaint was that the Lobster... Roll was served on a hotdog bun and the prices were a bit steep. Besides that, however, I recommend coming here.read more

I have eaten at the Maine Diner and have ordered food delivered to my home. Every experience has been excellent. The... people at Maine Diner are warm and so pleasant. The lobster pie is the best I have had since the Hilltop Steakhouse in Saugus, MA closed. Thank you Maine Diner and keep up the great work!read more

Ate here a few times over the last week or so and every time was a great experience. One of the times we had a short... wait for seating, but I was amazed at how quickly the staff turnover tables here... the staff was experienced, polite and very efficient. The food was, as they say, indescribably delicious, and our small party tried a variety of different menu choices. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal.read more
