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.

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.

Love this place, though service can be spotty food is excellent. Numerous options for vegetarians and vegans - (with some tweaking- no cheese etc). They also offer healthier options marked on the menu for the diet conscious. I was pleasantly surprised for a bar. Brought our kids on the second trip and they liked it as well. Waitress was pleasant... More

While visiting the Colby College Museum of Art, we went into Waterville for lunch. We spotted Mainely Brews which is located in the basement of the old Post Office building. We decided to give this a try. It appears to be popular with young local residents. The atmosphere was like a typical college age hang-out, dark, and not our usual... More

This bar frequently has live music. They offer a standard menu of items some with a Mexican slant, but largely american typical bar foods, wings, nachos, dips, steaks, etc. The beer selection is great with several local craft brews on tap and for an extremely competitive price. Will definitely go here again in the future.

You'll rarely have a bad meal at Mainely Brews - it's good pub grub. Their selection of micro brews is very good and the service is solid.
