The blueberry muffins have garnered a gold medal from the Culinary Hall of Fame, Gourmet magazine has requested the recipe for the world-famous walnut pie, and Saveur magazine named the whoopie pie one of the 100 top food finds of the year in 1999. For 80 years, Moody's Diner has been a national icon, serving great food to more than a million satisfied customers.
Those who have been to Moody's Diner know that Moody's is not a "quaint-on-purpose" tourist attraction. It is a diner on US Route 1 in Waldoboro, Maine, plain and simple. It has survived, prospered, and grown these 80-plus years because of good food, reasonable prices, and quick, pleasant service. There are people who eat at Moody's every day, and those who come in every time they travel to Maine. All are made welcome. Locals aren't expected to go elsewhere during tourist season and tourists aren't gouged for their vacation cash - it's never going to be that kind of place.
Alvah Moody figured that if you roast a turkey upside down, its juices would flow toward the breast and make that dry portion of meat juicier. That's what you're served at Moody's, along with fresh mashed potatoes, gravy made from a recipe instead of a jar, and a homemade dessert like lemon meringue or walnut pie.
