Local eatery and pub

Great local place for very good food. Not typical brew/pub fare. But very good, lots of draft beers. Local hotspot.

Too salty. Poor service. Food had too much fat. Noisy! Poor barbecued food. Not interested in returning!

The 302 West is for great food and lots of fun. It's a BBQ and Tavern with an eclectic menu [Mex, fish, BBQ] and great beer. Wait staff are fun and the background music will keep your feet tapping. The food is really good and the portions are enormous. It's fun, it's tasty, it's inexpensive and a great place to... More

Wait staff was just short of arrogant. She actually asked why I wasn't ordering the larger portion, and made a face when I told her. If she was having a bad day, she should have stayed at home. Dirty is understatement for this restaurant. Couldn't even think of focusing on meal....which was mediocre at best.

One of the best eateries around. The Lobster rolls are amazing! Actually, all the food at this hidden gem is super! My wife, family and I frequent the 302 when in the area. We have never been disappointed. Our only disappointment is when the parking lot is too full to get in. The wait staff is super as is the... More

Food was excellent and had a fun atmosphere. Lots of locals having a great time. It was a little loud, but it is a bar/grill and that's what we went for. 100% recommend.

302 is always a good time. We like to grab stools at the bar. The staff is terrific, the drinks and pub food are delicious, and if you go a few times, they call you by name and remember your drink order. The burgers are great, as are the nachos and potato skins. A low key place with nice people... More

We ate here on a Friday night. Asked to be seated outside and the deck was nice. Service was good. Waitress was attentive and the drinks and food came quickly. The BBQ plates were huge. Only disappointment was the Mac n cheese. Otherwise no complaints!

Recommended by Innkeeper. Arrived on Trivia night and the place was hopping. Got a hightop table near back of restaurant. Unfortunately the service was very slow despite what appeared to be adequate waitstaff. Waited 10 minutes before our drink order was taken. Finally got to order and ordered fried clams. Another 15 minutes went by and waitress appeared at the... More

We stop at the Maine visitors center. They suggested this restaurant although they said it would be noisy. We decided to let our hunger assess the noise. We were immediately seated at a hightop near the entry of the restaurant. This is basically a bar with a dining area. The noise wasn't that bad. People were well behaved and soft-spoken.... More
