My encouragement to you all is to not fear but be wise. No one can predict tomorrow, but today we must be cautious. Thank you for your understanding and patience. My prayer and hope are for your provision, safety and a calmness of soul during these uncertain days.
May God bless you!

Out of concern for the safety of our customers, staff and the general public, our present circumstances are demanding a more prudent and cautious approach to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, Moody's will be closed for two weeks beginning at 8am Tuesday March, 17. Our plan will be to reopen on Wednesday April 1 at 5am. This is not a joke.
My encouragement to you all is to not fear but be wise. No one can predict tomorrow, but today we must be cautious. Moody's will make further updates on our Facebook page and our website. Thank you for your understanding and patience. My prayer and hope are for your provision, safety and a calmness of soul during these uncertain days.
May God bless you!

With the coronavirus being declared a pandemic, please know that Moody’s is taking this matter seriously. Understandably, no one wants to live in fear, but wisdom says we need to be very cautious. As such, we have heightened awareness at the Diner and are taking extra precautions. It has always been our policy to be diligent to provide a clean and sanitary restaurant as customer safety is always a priority. Yet, due to the current situation we have conducted staff meetings this week and reviewed the CDC recommendations for what we can do to help prevent the possible spread of this virus. Additionally, we have heightened awareness among the staff to our sanitizing procedures. Sanitizing tables and booths in between customers and keeping work areas sanitized is always our policy yet we are being extra diligent with this process. Also, we are being diligent to keep menus sanitized regularly throughout the day for customer safety. Please know this list is not comprehensive, but intended to be illustrative of the steps we are taking to insure customer and staff safety.
We are very aware that these are difficult days. Decisions about where to go and what to do plague us all. Please know that we at Moody’s value your safety and completely understand if you don’t dine out as much during this time. However, please know that we are doing all we can to make Moody’s a safe dining experience for you. This is always our goal and we are keenly aware of its necessity during these days. We hope to see you at Moody’s as we keep making our pies, whoopies and delicious entrees, but we understand if you feel you need to take a short recess for a time. God Bless!

Yankee contributor and longtime Moody’s Diner patron Mike Urban salutes the popular Maine eatery, where fresh doughnuts, hot sandwiches, and to-die-for pie have made it a roadside favorite for nearly a century.
Located on the stretch of Route 1 between Portland, Maine, and Acadia National Park, Moody’s Diner is a long-standing, hugely popular roadside spot that has something for everyone — especially pie!
In 1927, it looked as though Waldoboro, Maine might be getting some automobile traffic from folks headed north up US Route 1. It seemed like a good idea to build a couple of cabins to see if we could find any weary travelers looking for a clean, inexpensive place to stay the night.
Now, ninety years later, we are very pleased to have served over a million people in our motel and diner. We have evolved from three cabins our first year, with no diner, to our present 18 cabins and rooms and a 104-seat diner that has become a national icon, featured in magazines and on television shows around the world.
In 1998, we added a small gift shop beside the diner and down the hill from the motel. In it, we offer a wide variety of items from Maine and New England, including our famous "I'm a Moody Person" shirts. On one wall of the diner we have photographs of people wearing our shirts in every corner of the globe.
Please explore our website and discover what makes Moody's Diner, Motel, and Gift Shop so special. And do come and visit us whenever you're in midcoast Maine. It is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth, and we are fortunate to be able to live and work here.
