Diner Reviews

The food was absolutely delicious! I hope we come back for dinner! (CT)
Loved the food so much I wished I could have eaten more!! (ME)
It’s always a pleasure to dine at Moody’s. My first visit there was in 1963 at age 14 years and I fell in love with the people and food. Thank you for maintaining quality. (ME)
We've been coming here for almost 28 years and love to see the familiar, friendly faces of all your waitresses. It's a warm, lively place to eat good food & "see life" in the winter. Thanks! (ME)
Best Strawberry Rhubarb Pie I've ever had!
The pies draw you in and the food keeps you here! (ME)
Unbelievable meal and atmosphere. A 10 in every way! Thank you!! (NH)
Ed spent birthday lunch—strawberry rhubarb pie—best ever eaten. Restaurant phenomenal with family history. Hannah, as well as all staff—warm, sweet and efficient. Best diner EVER. Told Maine friends to visit. Thank you. (NM)
I've been a customer for 31 years (my whole life) and it's amazing that your food and prices are still soooo wicked good! Thanks! (ME)

Great cabins-very classic- enjoyed being here- little part of history. You are very organized-seemed like all details were taken care of. I especially liked the porch- sitting out while it was raining. Thank you.
Cabin is beautiful and very clean. Beds are very comfy and everything was perfect. Thank you so much!
So very impressed and grateful this “old-timely” Maine place still exists. Our first outing since 2019. We felt safe here with your separate cabins and super clean.
We have stayed several times previously and as always, find our stay to be wonderful, friendly, clean and quiet! Thank you.
I enjoyed staying here. It is very clean, quiet, dark at night, comfortable and I love the rustic, old feel to it. The amenities- well they are all here and the staff are all very friendly and accommodating. I hope to return next year.
We are so happy to discover you and the diner. Will want to come back -ASAP- Keep up the great work!
Thank you! It was great! We always have a good time staying at Moody’s. Everyone is very helpful and friendly.
One of the cleanest places we’ve ever stayed! Thank you!
Love the clean, rustic cabin! Comfortable beds, peaceful surroundings for us. 5 stars! We’ll be back.
As previous innkeepers, we know this is a lot of work and really appreciate the superb job you’ve done in maintaining a wonderful place. If we’re ever here again we’ll stay with you. Of course, we’ll recommend your cabins and diner.
Just one question: How do you get your open-air cabins cleaner than I can get my house?? See you next year and thanks again for everything!
Wonderful cabin! Love the peace and quiet. Thank you for being here. See you soon!
Our favorite. Quiet, clean and peaceful. We are visitors since 1985.

Welcome to Moody's Diner!

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 offered 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 and Motel 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.
