We had Pot Roast and Macaroni and Cheese. They were both cooked just right; the mashed potatoes were creamy and the gravy was very tasty. Service was excellent. Try their blueberry pie with ice cream!

We always hit the Maine Diner for a take-out when we are in the Wells area. They know how to do a good take-out and the food is always terrific. A good dependable place to have a great meal.

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.
