Enjoyable Dining Experience

The restaurant is very much like a pub atmosphere - casual and informal. Good points: comfortable bar area, lots of choices for draft beer (many are local craft beers), booths or tables, extensive food menu, fast service.

I have eaten lunch here many times and always had a good meal. Today, the three of us arrived about 12:15. We were followed in by several large parties. It was so loud that I could not hear my companions across the table. No biggie...roll with it. What I did have a problem with was finally receiving my meal after... More

Located in a very interesting basement of the old post office. Look around at the walls and ceiling. They don't make them like this any more.

The calzones are fantastic and the possible toppings are unending! The best part of Mainely... More

Great bar and pub for casual gatherings. Butternut Squash Ravioli was absolutely wonderful. Kept looking for Norm to come in especially since this is in an old Post Office building. Would definitely eat here again if in town.

Ate there last night, hamburger night. Really enjoyed the Montreal burger. My wife loved her Shanghai burger and D said she loved their fries.

the atmosphere is great. Having grown up in Waterville it is fun to see one of our older building being used not torn down. the food is delicious and there is something for everyone's taste.. It is reasonably priced.
