Very lively atmosphere and great fish and chips on New Year's Day!!

Four of us on New Year's Day. Not much open in Rockland so decided to try it out. It was crowded and lively. I have fish and chips which were delicious. A very large portion. I was very happy with it. It was very light. The others in my party were also happy with their meals.

We've been here many times! It's one of our favorite places to eat in Rockland. The "haystack onion rings" are amazing, and the first thing we order every single time! The servers are always smiling and laughing with all the customers.

Sure, Waterworks has a long bar, free popcorn, sports on TV, and faithful regulars, but their food is a draw too. There aren't many surprises on the menu, but what they have is prepared consistently, quickly, and at a fair price. Even in the middle of the afternoon, standards seem to be maintained. Guilty pleasure here: crinkle-cut sweet potato fries... More

We were visiting and looking for a sports bar type restaurant that served good food. We were staying at the Samoset resort who recommended this restaurant. We called to make sure the game we wanted to watch was on before we went. Upon our arrival we were seated and ordered our food and proceeded to watch the game on their... More

The food was excellent, hardy and authentic seafood. They even delivered one night a take-out to our hotel, the Captain Lindsey House Inn.

I go here all the time in my stays in Maine. Its delicious food, the chicken parm and the chicken parm sandwich is one of my favorites as well as the chicken nachos. The prices are cheap and the atmosphere is like any other pub fare bar type setting. Delicious food and the service wasnt too bad!

We've been to Waterworks twice during our week in Rockland. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The menu has a variety of items, much of which is typical burgers, fried foods, and such. They have an excellent happy hour, and we were even told to wait a few minutes to place our order to take advantage of it. My... More
