Went shopping in Waterville and came across this place. Nice patio area but it was so hot, we went inside. Not a very inviting entrance but great when you get inside. Large selection of beer, very friendly wait staff. We had Amanda and she was excellent. We ordered a bruschetta pizza for a snack. It was fantastic! You have to... More

Nice for Waterville, standard quality pub food, good atmosphere, hit or miss as to who is cooking. Sometimes the fish and chips are great and sometimes like rubber, same goes for the chicken wings level of spice varies. The real negative is it is so loud you have to yell to hear people at your table talk, after 5.30 take... More

If in Waterville, you might want to visit this microbrewery located in the former post office building. They offer a variety of beer, a full menu and fun atmosphere.

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

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 gave plenty of time and want... More

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
