The food here is very good. They have many of your typical diner choices and break fast is served all day. What makes them different is a nice selection of seafood and lobster. We enjoyed the soup and chowder sampler while the kids enjoyed pancakes...More

We ate breakfast at this diner and it was one of the best in the area. Very friendly people and the food was exactly what you asked for. I love when you ask for eggs a certain way and that's what you get.

I went here for supper because so many people raved about it. I had a seafood chowder which was runny but has some flavour. To be honest I had the seafood platter which is all deep fried but the food was over cooked and it...More

Whenever I go to Wells, the Maine Diner is the first stop I make. No matter what meal you have everything is excellent and fresh. Be prepared to wait during meal times but it is worth the wait!

We came for breakfast based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. The hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benedict was amazing! The portions were large and thoughtfully put together. The service was excellent. There is a cute gift shop next door to explore after...More

Why do they serve pre boxed eggs, stopped for breakfast, spouse had fried eggs very good , I ordered scrambled, tough, flat, no taste, for such a well know Diner how lazy can the cooks be that they cannot take time to scramble FRESH eggs? Should be printed on menu or wait staff should inform customers. Shame on you Maine Diner

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.
Is there outdoor seating available
