A popular restaurant in Waterville where I refuse to eat dinner. As a foodie there are certain things you just deal with - one is knowing when food is terrible. I won't eat dinner here. Appetizers are usually ok - but just ok. Drinks are great and service is great - the atmosphere is fun and laid back. A cool... More

I came with a large group(at least 30 associates)for a company Christmas party. The appetizers were great. The service was outstanding! Everyone was very happy with their meals.

Sometimes this place overextends its kitchen, trying to be upscale and trendy- but basically it's a solid pub food experience. Stick to that, you'll be fine. Not to say they don't succeed with the gastro pub thing sometimes- but it's not consistent, and I don't like to gamble, given the price of everything these days. Good bustling pub atmosphere. Fun...

Beer was fine and the Amsterdamer was fine as always. The noise level is sometimes high, but it reflects the popularity of the place. Bar seating, regular seating, and even some group meeting rooms give the place a lot of flexibility for functions as well. Sometimes the wait for pizza can be long on the nights there is two for...

Mainelys, as the locals call it, is a great place to gather with friends. With good pub fare, nightly specials, and several vegetarian options, there's something for everyone. The beer list is long, as is the cocktail menu. As long as you don't mind the dark, windowless and casual atmosphere, this is always a good choice in Waterville.

The food is pretty good and the bar is cool...we went when a Grateful Dead cover band was playing and had to leave because the smell of the people in the place was just too much to handle! I'm pretty sure they hadn't showered in a couple of weeks at least. Maybe we will have a better experience next time.... More
