18 Below truly is the best restaurant in the Waterville area! We frequently patronize this place for all the reasons; food, atmosphere, and the best wait staff! Last night, my daughter-in-law and her 2 young children were hungry and wanted a great meal. My daughter-in-law went into the restaurant and checked in with the Host. The Hostess was more than...

A great place with atmosphere to rival any chic restaurant in any major city. The food is superb. Portions are generous. Service is prompt and attentive. My mate and I decided to give 18 Below a try on Valentines day. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was a fixed 6 course dinner for the holiday with two choices for salad... More

I hadn't been in Waterville in more than 20 years, and this place was a very pleasant surprise. When I expressed regret that the wine I wanted was not available by the glass, they opened the bottle for me anyway, and served me. I had a vegetarian dish and it was delicious. They had several impressive vegetarian options on the... More

This is a really classy looking place! I guess that wasn't what I was expecting, but I really liked it! The decor is classy, but chic enough for a lounge look. Our waiter was really attentive and really great, excellent on the service front. The mussels we ordered for an appetizer were HUGE! They were really good too, with a... More

We live locally and were looking for a quality dining experience. We had guests for the night from Boston and did not want to bring them to a chain restaurant for dinner. The food was outstanding! We were seated immediately and service was prompt without being rushed. The prices were high; however, the food was well worth it. We have... More

18 Below, in my opinion, is consistently the best restaurant in the Waterville, ME, area. We have returned at least 4 times since the establishment opened a little over a year ago. The ambience is pleasant, with large comfortable booths along one wall, and a few tables long the other. There are also a few tables in the bar/lounge area.... More

If you are in Waterville looking for a good meal, this is your spot. The service here is outstanding, the food all very fresh and perfectly prepared. Try their special margarita, made from scratch at the bar...not for the light of heart. I have had several of their entrees and have not been disappointed. The only complaint would be that... More
