As a European, I loved this place for its atmosphere and interior design. The staff were very friendly, the meals excellent. For me it felt like Back to the future destination. After family dinner we also came back next morning for breakfast and both was great.

Stopped on a whim on our drive from North Conway, NH to Kennebunkport. Being English, we loved the 50's feel and decor and found the diner clean with a friendly, attentive waitress. Food was really good if you want an unfussy and simple meal. The all american bacon cheesburger and their pancakes (my wife and i shared) were very tasty... More

The food was just OK. Service was slow. Waitress tired and not real friendly or helpful. The wait for our meal was rather long. Floors not real clean. The place appears to have potential I think we hit it at a bad time between breakfast and lunch. Would consider trying lunch again possibly however not sure about breakfast

Regular diner food. Better food in Limerick a few miles North or Waterboro a couple miles south or a mile on 5 towards Portland at the gas station-pawn shop. They do have nice waitresses o-boy. Can't say much for the manager. I won't go back.

Just had an excellent home cooked meal. From start to finish everything was so delicious. I had the open faced hot turkey and the turkey was so moist. The gravy came on side which was nice to control how much gravy you like on your sandwich. Paired with truly homemade onion rings. The rolls were hot and delicious with a... More

Coming back from visiting the Marrett House in Standish, I had a late lunch here. I’ve eaten here several times and have always had good food. And, I always enjoy the classic 1950’s diner décor. See my previous review for details. This time, I ordered the Grilled Cheese Sandwich at $4.99. Tomato was 50 cents extra. With tax, the total... More

For the most part, Blast From the Past is an average diner. The food is OK and most of the service is good. There could be more choices on the menu and more home cooked meals rather than prepared cuisine. The extras such as sour cream for baked potatoes and cranberry sauce for chicken or turkey should not be charged... More

First let me say that we came on a Sunday and it was crowded. The wait staff was very sweet how ever the kitchen was extremely slow. We waited over an hour and 15 minutes and no food was delivered to our table. People sat 15 to 20 minutes after us had their food. Food finally arrived 1 hour and... More

I don't know if there is a new cook - but what they are sending out of the kitchen has been great recently. Living in Waterboro, there are not a lot of dining options. Like other reviewers we found the food to be sub-par in the past and tended to go here as a last resort. Recently, I have had... More

You have to appreciate the décor of this 50" style dinner. Granted it does serve your generic diner fare, but there are a few gems on the menu. And in the winter times they have customer appreciation night where it's 1/2 off your entrée and all you have to do is buy a drink. If I'm ever in the mood... More
