Great place for lobster soup and some unique local beer.

Very lively place. Noise level at times is a little high specially if you are sitting near the live band. We enjoyed it. Food was great, service staff was very nice. We got our drinks very quickly but the food arrived very late (about 45 minutes after we ordered). Place worth visiting if you... read more

Stopped for lunch after spending more money at the dive shop Brew house club was excellent, thick freshly cooked bacon, light mayo tomatoes, lettuce on toasted whole-wheat. Hand cut onion rings also exceptional Ate them all. And did I mention about 20 brews on tap including my favorite, Allagash Go and enjoy

We arrived late in town one night and stopped by this unique cellar bar. Great service and although I wasn't very hungry, I had to try the lobster stew. The cup had three or four little claws and lots of flavor. We stayed for a few songs during the open mic night. The next day, we tried a more upscale... More

Party of three for an early dinner on Saturday--- 5pm. PLace wasn't very busy when we arrived. It took over an hour and a half to eat dinner-- 40+ minutes of that was spent waiting for our entrees. By the time we left the place was busy, but we should have gotten our food long before then. Waitress was inattentive--... More

We were there for lunch on a Friday. Nice sandwiches, soups, grilled tuna and salads. Incredible choice of local beers. Good service. Lunch crowd a little noisy but overall a great experience

Loud, loud, loud, my husband and I went there for our 38th wedding anniversary, the service sucked, the noise level was so high we had to almost holler at each other from across the table, sad, but I feel cheated out of a very special moment, no tip for server, and the food is not worth the price. No quality... More

We have gone to Mainely Brews two times and all I can say is that its OK. The first time we had horrible service ,we sat and sat before our drink order was taken and we were in a booth along a wall and there were plenty of other customers and wait staff running around. The food was alright, we... More

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.
