Arrived just before noon and found table in the back room with a view of all the interesting license plates. Service was excellent, waitress very pleasant. Husband asked for just a burger instead of one the wide variety of gets-your-attention burgers and was quickly granted...More

I love Nicky's Crusin' dinner. This little restaurant is close to BIA and is a through back to the 50's. The food is fantastic and the walls are filled with 50's memorabilia! I had a delicious lobster roll with fries and coleslaw for under 20...More

Don't waste your time going to this place. We went here for an early lunch and didn't get a waitress to even come to our table for 30mins. Then waited an hour for our food! A salad at that! The waitress, Bobbi, was horrible. She...More

There are times when defending your staff is appropriate, and this is one of those times. We were busy with a waiting line, and all things considered, our staff handled it all quite well. Bobbi has been loved by our customers for over 10 years.

Was in town for a music festival and decided to have breakfast. Service was good and the food was very good.

This is a fun place to go with great 50s memorabilia. The food was great and reasonably priced. The vanilla milkshake was excellent! Thick and creamy. The staff was friendly and service was great.

I have tried this place several times for breakfast and have not had very good experiences. The food was mediocre at best and service was bad. A co worker suggested I try it at night so I gave it a try last night. It was...More

I ordered 1 blueberry pancake with bacon. Believe it or not they didn't have real maple syrup in a Maine diner! They had the fake substitute. Food was just ok & overpriced.

Always busy, but there's a good reason for that: The great food. I'm not in Bangor often, but eat here every time I visit.
