A Friendly Place

Terrific place for locals and folks traveling through on Route 1. Great atmosphere, terrific food, friendly local servers. Perfect for families, those on a date, or passing through on their own.

My wife and I go to The Narrows at least once a week. Emily already knows what we want when we walk in and the service is excellent. She always orders us a basket of home made chips (on the house). It is not too loud to hear each other and hold a conversation without raising our voices. The food... More

The staff and locals will welcome you to this low-key and unpretentious tavern. Nice beer selection, solid menu, live music some nights in the summer. All in all, a nice place to while away a few hours.

Not many dining options near the inn we were staying at, so we ended up at the Narrows and were glad we did. We sat at the bar and immediately struck up conversation with one local guy and then others; it was a pleasant way to spend the evening. We appreciated the wide selection of local beers on draft and... More

A Tuesday night. Lots of colorful locals, good burgers, great beer and super wait staff. Wasn't sure on which draft beer to order. Waitress was very generous with advise and samples. Great taste of local culture.

I am so glad we finally stopped in at the Narrows. We are in Waldoboro frequently and it nice to have a place in town other than Moody's diner. It was a busy Friday night, but the owner found us a nice table and we ordered fish and chips. Hailing from a Massachusetts fishing town, we are pretty critical of... More

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.
