Good old fashioned diner with all the charm you want and expect. Friendly service. And when the owner comes out of the kitchen with a basket full of fresh warm donut-holes to pass out (free!), I was all in. The rest of the menu is...completely predictable, in a good way. The food is good or at the very least fine. There are no Michelin stars here. It is what it is and hits the spot. I hope to be back.More

Long drive from Bar Harbor on the way to Quebec after a few wrong turns we came upon this restaurant. Breakfast was great and had a wonderful server.

Thompson’s is simple, rustic, and DELICIOUS. The fish chowder is some of the best I’ve ever had. Im a food snob, so I don’t eat out much in Central Maine, but Thompson’s is the exception. The fried seafood is well done with a delicate batter,...the decor is fun, and the service is friendly. If you’re rafting or hiking, skip the mediocre food in The Forks, and come here!More

We have been coming here for number of years. It is exceptional, and the pies are over the top wonderful. American diner at its best!

If you find yourself in the north Maine woods , near Bingham or Solon, check out Thomsons for breakfast or lunch. Great food and prices. Just don't expect modern interior styling because this place has been frozen in time for decades.

A friend and I enjoyed the spectacular scenery and good road to Bingham. Thompson’s was a real treat. We both had excellent hamburgers and real French fries. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. Lots of seafood ordered by locals. The waitress knew...most of the patrons by name, but still made us feel welcome and well cared for. We left with a couple of the wonderful donuts. Makes a fun day trip and will definitely go again.More

We got lost going from Bangor Airport to Quebec City and found Thompson's along the way. Starving, frustrated and a little overwhelmed by the snowy roads, we stopped despite the fact that no one was inside (it was 4pm). By 5:30, the place was packed...and for good reason - the steak was delicious, the 4 bean salad was homemade, the haddock chowder was GLORIOUS and the pies, homemade again, were straight up delish. A glass of admittedly-cheap wine, coffee and iced tea, all for $40!!! The waitress was a dear and the 'story' of Thompson's on the back of the menu had hilariously bad spelling and grammar, but the story was sweet and made us very happy to be part of Thompson's history.More

They offer a good variety of items considering it is a small restaurant. I believe they did offer some menu choices, but I don't remember what.
