One of the servers has Celiacs, so the kitchen and staff are well educated and very careful about cross contamination!

The staff was super knowledgeable and I heard her talking gluten free in the kitchen. They have a bound book of all allergens in each food they offer. It was the first time I felt safe eating diner food in 30+ years of Celiac.

Best meal in Maine! Hot lister roll, baked beans with bacon, and coleslaw. Oh yes. And chocolate chip blueberry ice cream for dessert!

We had breakfast here. I was able to have poached eggs, corned beef hash, fruit, and gf toast. The food was great and the service was quick!

I had the club sandwich, with gf bread and french fries. It was good. The bread was baked in the oven.

Husband's favorite place for breakfast when in Maine, scrambled eggs, cornbeef hash,home fries and gluten free toast which is baked not toasted so no danger of cross contamination. Note: they are expanding gf menu, and now have gluten free lobster pie.

Just had a great turkey club sandwich on GF bread. Fresh tomatoes and lettuce. Have a shellfish allergy and our waitperson told the chefs. They made a point to cook it in a separate location. Love coming here when we are in Maine.

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.

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 toast...it 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.
