    GF bread, sausage and homefries. Had a delicious sausage breakfast sandwich. Shared surfaces, so not safe for Celiac. Very friendly and fast service!

    The infamous Maine Diner offers GF bread for sandwiches and burgers...only shortcoming is lack of GF fried seafood, but there were plenty of options. All sides to meals are GF....chips, potato salad, coleslaw

    We went for dinner around 7pm and the place was packed. We were able to be seated within minutes and were immediately given menus and drinks. I had seen online that they had GF bread so I asked the waitress about having the lobster melt of GF bread, she was so pleasant and said ABSOLUTELY! She pointed out the GF side options, which included potato salad, chips, Cole slaw and beans. Food was ready very quickly, and the lobster melt was delicious! Lots of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner...reasonably priced and great service.

    Gone down hill recently. Wait staff not helpful for allergies. Food sucked even for non-gluten-free customers.

    Delicious! While the gluten free options are not noted, you can pretty much figure out what you can eat. The waitress then was able to confirm if it was okay. I ordered the lobster melt (during breakfast) on gluten free bread that was toasted in the oven (waitress made a note on the cook slip). I love diners and miss going to them, so it was a nice treat.

    The Maine Diner is one of the food experiences I miss the most since being diagnosed with Celiac. There aren't a lot of gluten free choices, but the waitress was very attentive to my needs and gave me a list of all of their dishes and possible allergens. I settled on bacon, eggs, and toast. They have very good gluten free bread. No separate toaster, but they will toast it in the oven. The waitress wrote and underlined "in the oven" on the check and also verbally told the kitchen that it had to go in the oven. I would have loved pie, pancakes, corn muffins, and french toast, but very good bacon, eggs, and toast had to do. It's just not the same Maine Diner experience when you have Celiac. Even though I didn't get sick, I would say it isn't Celiac friendly due to the lack of a specific gluten free menu and the busyness of the restaurant.

    Great food of you can eat gluten. No gf menu and waitress was very little help. its crowded and bustling already, ordering should be much simpler. Very little options.

    They do not have a gluten free menu, only gluten free bread with gluten free options. Not very patient with helping me choose options. I only had eggs, ham and gf was just ok. If I had to do it again, I would have chosen a more gluten friendly restaurant.

    Agree with the reviewer who stated they are not GF. We ordered French toast with GF bread, and they use the same egg wash as their regular French toast and wouldn't make a new one. Bet the font have a separate toaster either. We avoid going here. Too bad because the menu is otherwise good, I just don't trust the staff to meet the needs of celiacs.

    Only had a sandwich but the GF bread was spectacular! I suspect it was homemade.
