A sure bet

We have returned to this tavern each time we visit the area. There is nothing fancy about the place, but the sandwiches we usually order are always good.

We rented a cabin nearby and drive past this place a dozen times before stopping. I was craving fried clam strips and this place didn't let me down. Not only friendly service but delicious strips and home made chips! I never eat potato chips and I was fighting my husband for the last few. I would have posted a pic... More

Right in the middle of what you would call downtown Waldoboro. Great place for a burger and beer. Street parking in front or a lot in back.

You have to go out of your way to get to downtown Waldoboro, but it's worth the diversion. The Narrows Tavern is a classic "Cheers" pub complete with locals, and good pub fare. Definitely worth the stop.

Went here after an art opening down the street with 4 people that live nearby who seemed to know everybody who walked in the door This place is super casual with a warm time honored patina. Decorations include a gigantic, antique map of Maine next to a painting of an individual who's portrait was adorned with can of Old Milwaukee... More

A friend and I found this little tavern tucked away in the town of Waldoboro. Being vegetarians we always need to check the menu to see if there is anything for us to eat. We were pleasantly surprised to find 4 selections not counting the salads. The food was great, inexpensive, and served hot! The tavern itself is very cute.... More

We stopped in to this little tavern after a long drive on Easter. Very surprised to find something open so we took advantage. Sat at the bar and was greeted by a very nice bar tender. Decent beer, decent food, and a sea captain playing shanties on the banjo?!

The Narrows is an unassuming community tavern very good food, a wide assortment of draft beers as well as the bottled standards. The place opens at 11am. The food is substantial, prepared on site, neither effete nor bulk freezer to fryer as is 'way too common along this coast. The clientele includes most of the locals... Professionals, clammers, retired folks...The... More

Dined at the Narrow's Tavern on a recent Friday evening with my family. This is a small, local's spot with picnic tables and a small bar. The waitstaff was friendly, and many of the tables were full. Soon after our departure, entertainment was to start, taking up the space of one of about seven tables. We chose this establishment based... More
