We were hungry. We stopped a couple of other places but the waits were way too long. Finally found this place. It is a small bar with fantastic food. Our waitress was very attentive and even though it was busy she took good care of us. I had the barbecue sandwich and hand cut fries. I love barbecue and this... More

It's a small tavern, but well-lit and not too loud, considering. There are about 6 long tables and a few small ones, making seating a bit of a challenge. We actually asked a family to share their table with us, which they gladly did. We had 1/2-lb Angus burgers that were out of this world. Cooked perfectly, with delicious seasonings.... More

Not many places to get well prepared food in this town. Of the few places I tried this is by far the best. Turned out we ate here several times because of the menu and the good food. Service is good, and mostly friendly locals eat here. Had seafood and hamburgers, beer is pretty good too. Not fancy but clean... More

Neat little spot with some art and stuff on the walls. Local pub with inviting feel. Our waitress slash bartender was very efficient. Couldn't have a beer do to work but the coffee was good and hot. We ordered a roasted red pepper & Gouda soup and a chili for starters. Both were good and would order again. We got... More

Food is very good but it is too loud to have a conversation with a friend - too bad...bad acoustics and people talking loudly..

Several years ago, we were visiting Maine and driving through Waldoboro. We saw artists set-up around town painting, so we stopped to see what this was all about. We learned about their art auction to raise money for the town library (I believe). We walked around the small town and stopped in this restaurant for lunch; we've come back every... More

A modest, but comfortable place not on the tourist map, where the locals hang out and visitors are made to feel very welcome! My husband and I enjoy staying at the Blue Skye Farm just up the Friendship Road; Jan recommended the Narrows, and now we visit every chance we get. 0n our last visit for lunch, they had saved...

We enjoyed a meal at The Narrows Tavern several years ago and it was just as good this time. We had one of the daily lunch specials: a prime rib sandwich filled with thin slices of prime rib, grilled onion and a white cheese. Nice staff too.

Checked out the local eatery, practically the only one left in Waldoboro not on Route 1. Had to wait a bit as the place was packed for dinner. But our meals were very good, would have gotten doggie bags if we had a refrigerator available. A bit noisy but its a tavern. Enjoyed the service and the locals.
