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.

A friend and I met here for dinner on our way to a conference. Never been before, but certainly felt welcomed. A really interesting menu - lots of slightly different takes on comfort foods. Really great burger, perfectly cooked, well seasoned. And the Onion Rings - we both agreed we'd go back just for those! Fish and chips were perfect.... More

We ate at the Narrows Tavern a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed it. Had the opportunity to return tonight and loved it just as much. A great, friendly atmosphere with quality pub food. The menu has a lot of variety. It's good quality and not greasy at all. Lots of vegetarian options, which is nice. Friendly waitstaff... More

I love going to the Narrows, especially on their session nights when aging hippies and their friends and partners hang out and chew the communal fat. The choice of brews is excellent from the cheapest to the steepest. Boomer string bands and millenium songwriters produce an eclectic blend of folk/blues/jazz that almost guarantees to tickle some musical memories buried deep... More

The Narrows is good solid pub food at reasonable prices, served hot and fresh. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Great selection of beer, and a mug club for the regulars. They are surprisingly kid friendly as well. After 8PM, it becomes more of a grown up place to hang out, have a few drinks, play cards or cribbage and... More

I will stop in for lunch from time to time when I am in the area and I am always surprised by the menu. There are some really interesting things on the menu and everything I have had has been really well prepared. As an example, I believe they have the best nachos in the area. I have tried them...

My wife and I eat here several times per year, whenever we'd like a simple, tasty meal at a reasonable price. The Narrows doesn't have a big fancy storefront on Waldoboro's main street, just a typical neighborhood bar look and feel. It's has a comfy bar at one back corner while the rest of the space is taken up with... More

We've been there several times and the food has been wonderful. After a period of time this winter of not getting out to lunch,we decided to make the 25 mile voyage, as I HAD to have their french fries.....the best of anywhere! Well, something has happened as the fries were awful, seemed under cooked and soggy. What a surprise and... More
