Unless you are an area college kid, this place has horrible service. Do not go in there with the intention of a good, quick meal. We had to fight for service for drinks and to order our meal. It got to the point we were waiting so long we went to the bar to get our own drinks.... WHILE EATING... More

Reviews have been great for this resturant and I hadn't been in many years, so we decided to try it based on the reviews. However, the night we went, they were definitely off track. The place wasn't busy with plenty of tables and it took them forever to assign us a table after they greeted us. When we asked about... More

On a Saturday evening, we planned to go to Mainely Brews and eat outside. However, it earned so we went inside to a dark loud arena. The food was good and service was rapid and courteous, but the room was too loud to talk and the sound reverberated with all conversations inaudible. If you chose to go. eat only outside.

We arrived early on a Saturday evening and went downstairs into the main dining area, where we were seated. We quickly realized it was much too noisy, so we asked if we could move to the outdoor dining area. It was quite pleasant there and the food was good!

Casual dining both inside and out and food is fresh. Classic Maine fare and other great dishes available. Located under the old post office with a great atmosphere for both lunch and an evening meal.

It was served in a wine glass lukewarm, no fruit actually in the sangria.... there was a few slices of bar fruit on the top...um sangria you know pears, peaches, apples got to be some fresh fruit up there in Maine.

Our group visited for dinner, and our ages ranged from 23 to 82. We originally thought of eating outside and the staff was very willing to accommodate us. However, the location did not suit my needs so I asked if we could then eat inside. The staff understood my concerns and put a few tables together inside. It is a... More

When in Waterville, this is the spot to go to. Mainely's has a diverse menu, and all options I've tried are tasty. Their burgers are delicious and affordable, and they have a fine selection of beers, including some of their own that they home-brew. The location puts you in the heart of Waterville, and the atmosphere inside is homey and... More

This place is much too loud for pleasant dining. The food is uninspiring, and too greasy. Craft beer availability is inconsistent.
