You’ll Love Visiting the Brunswick Diner, A Maine Restaurant Loaded With Local History
A visit to the Brunswick Diner in Maine is every bit iconic as it is historic. Known for serving authentic homemade diner classics, this bright-red landmark was once a 1930s railcar. The nostalgic decor is sure to make you feel like you traveled back in time.
While the railcar may be small, it's full of history. In business since 1946, the Brunswick Diner has been a go-to eatery for generations of families.
Grab a seat at the retro countertop bar and listen as the long-time regulars reminisce about the past. It's more than just the comfort food that keeps the locals coming back.
The diner is decked out in 1950s retro decor, shiny red leather booths, and complete with an authentic Wurlitzer jukebox. Each table even has its own mini jukebox.
This Brunswick staple has been in the same location for decades, but was once located in Norway, Maine.
The now Brunswick Diner was formerly known as Miss Brunswick Diner, The Norway Diner, and The Norwago Diner.
During the Depression era and with the hopes of attracting more women to diners, it was common for establishments to add "Miss" to their name. This is why the diner was once called Miss Brunswick Diner.
With menu options named “Sinatra,” "The Beach Boys," and “James Dean,” a meal at the Brunswick Diner is a true blast from the past experience.
While it's no secret that Maine is known for its lobster, many locals claim this tiny diner has the best lobster rolls in the state.
With only five owners to date, this decades-old historic dining car hasn't changed much.
The diner still has warm hospitality, the same classic character, and the reasonably priced "down-home" cooking.
It remains the most authentic old-time diner in the state.
