In all fairness I need to give them another shot. Sat in the bar area. After we ordered we were told a party of 30 came in just before my friend and I got there and that it would be a while before we would receive our order.We asked for bread, and asked, and asked. Finally got a couple of... More

While I have been back and forth to Rockland for the past five years, Waterworks had somehow escaped detection. It was recommended by a local B&B and I am very happy that it was. While steamed lobster was not on the menu (per se), the folks were most accommodating and cooked up a good sized hard shell which I was... More

This is a good stop for lunch..they have daily specials and good beer on tap. Pleasant atmosphere and good service. Well worth a stop while in town.. Fish and chips and their burgers are the top edibles....

We were on our way to the Rockland Breakwater. My boyfriend just looked up to find a restaurant and this one came up!!! We decided to eat there. The food was resonably priced, the waiter was very nice and we had a seat on the deck!!! The food was great too!! We will definitely go back another time.....

This restaurant was on a list of "suggested" (not recommended..want to be clear about that) places to dine while i met up with friends in Rockland. We arrived around 5:30 and it appeared to be a busy place (good sign), we were told to wait at the bar for the next seating ...I cannot say that we felt "welcomed" more... More

The Waterworks Restaurant continues its pub atmosphere with daily specials, a well stocked bar and friendly staff. Serving lunch and dinner, the right-sized menu selection along with the caulk board specials allows Waterworks to prepare fresh, tasty food at a reasonable price. Free popcorn is available and the popper is hot, so parents should help their children who want to... More

Waterworks has a great atmosphere for drinks and munchies with friends. A good place to unwind from a long day or relax on your night off. I dine here regularly for the laid back feel. Somewhat hidden but still a good find. Food isn't spectacular but just what you want with drinks.

Four of us came hungry, chowed like rabid dogs and all left with a huge smile and full bellies. This place is awesome. In town for a week and wish I discovered on day 1. I had an amazing burger, my gf had Fettucini Alfredo and everyone else had friend fish. Everything was perfect and the service was very good... More

We drove around Mid Coast Maine for 2 hours looking for a place to have dinner, every place we tried going to,was closed. It's tough to find a place opened in Maine, in March, most places were only opened from Thursday - Sunday and we were staying during the week,that's something to think about when you're planning a trip up...

The Waterworks restaurant was next door from where we stayed. Because it was convenient, my husband and I decided to eat there. Service and food were a disappointment and the locals were definitely favored at this establishment. My husband watched the bartender pour drinks and if he know you, your drinks were made well. In fact, my husband sent his... More
