Moody's

1885 Atlantic Highway, Waldoboro, ME - (207) 832-7785
An honest roadside diner that is a bastion of Yankee cooking, Moody's serves great muffins in the morning and such hearty fare as red flannel hash and corned beef boiled dinner. Don't miss the maple walnut pie.

"Alvah Moody attributes the success of Moody’s diner to the fact that it was the only place open round-the-clock between Bangor and Portland before the interstate highway was built; but that's just typical Downeast understatement. Moody's has thrived since 1935 because ..."   [Read More]

Gigantic, plump strawberries, sweet Maine blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are stuffed beyond capacity into this slightly thick crust.  Some adore this pie beyond comparison.  I found it too much of a good thing and a bit difficult to eat.

Blueberry muffins are not too huge or too sweet, but they are chock-a-block with small, full-flavored berries.

One time when Moody's took fried tripe off the menu, so many regulars complained that they put it right back on. It is a long-time diner favorite in these parts but to put it gently, it is a taste that most of us must work hard to acquire.

Boiled dinner: a classic New England meal, but hard to find nowadays in restaurants. It includes corned beef, beets, carrots, potato, cabbage, and turnips.

While muffins are the archetypal Maine morning breakfast pastry, Moody's cinnamon rolls are not to be ignored. Our waitress informed us that the best day to have them is Thursday because the roll-baker that day makes the tallest ones.

Moody's was out of blueberry pie, so I tried the raspberry pie.  I was not disappointed!

Not too many... not too few... just the right amount of blueberries scattered in a slightly malty, thin, pancake.  Top it off with a scrambled egg and crisp bacon and you'll be full 'til dinner!

Many good pies are available for dessert, but it's Moody's walnut pie that most people consider the best. Alvah Moody told us that it was based on southern-style pecan pie, but isn't so cloyingly sweet.

Indian pudding, a long-baked porridge of cornmeal and molasses, is always served warm, and always with either ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Moody's attracts plenty of travelers along Route One as well as a regular crowd of locals.

This sign used to be a beacon for truckers traveling south in the middle of the night. Moody's is no longer open round-the-clock, but it's a great place to come for pre-dawn breakfast.

Moody's has grown over the years, but it remains a bastion of good old diner ways.
