First time for visiting this restaurant...the food was amazing, but our server, Sierra, was a breath of fresh air. She actually talked to us while buzzing around with other clients! Personable, smart, efficient and damn funny. We'll b back and hope she's there!!!

I sat at the bar and had the house margarita and the soup special, tomato vegetable. The soup was delicious, but I wasn't a fan of the margarita sour mix. This spacious tavern is in a historic 1877 building and retains the original stained glass...windows, wood floors, brick, and tin ceiling. I was impressed by all the placards throughout the tavern showing historic photos of Waterville everyday life and events. The restaurant's outdoor signage is very unique and 'artistic' (see pic). Friendly service, nice outdoor eating space.More

I picked up my teenage daughter there on Saturday. She was dinning with five other teenagers as part of a birthday party with two adults. As I entered I nearly bumped into a server who was exiting a bathroom. Across her blouse in silver rhine...stones was "F*^K YOU". I sat at a table behind the kids for 15 minutes as they finished and a server never approached me offering any service. The half of my daughter's wrap that I had on the way home was tasty. However, for someone in public service to dress that way, even at a pub, is beyond ridiculous and for the management to permit it is outrageous.More

Stopped in here with my wife because a friend listed it as a place nearby. It was clean with the expected bar menu (Bergers, sandwiches, rings, fries, some specials) and a fair (not great) selection of beers. Service was just awful. We did eventually get...waited on but the waitstaff we had could hardly be bothered. Had some better meals once I found some other places. This place needs work.More

My wife and I are in town due to a death in the family. As we do not know the area we took to trip advisor for a recommendation. A family member told us the food was great but it was a little pricey. I...wouldn't say pricey, but average compared to other restaurants we've visited over the years. The atmosphere was great as was the service. The food....even better. My wife and I each ordered the Teriyaki Tips with mushrooms. I also ordered the fried calamari as an appetizer. Our orders came out quick, hot, and how we asked for them, no issues at all. We would definitely recommend this place to others and would visit again if in the area.More

Great outdoor dining that I appreciate due to COVID. Our very special server was on her A-game.My Son & I both opted for The Crazy Ruby and it was perfect with a mountain of pastrami. Sweet potato fries were cooked perfectly. French fries are the...best anywhere. Have been here over the years & have never been dissatisfied with the food or the service. Great Bar also. Will be back many more times.More

It had been our first visit in awhile, and were patient with the recent staff turnover. The Italian sandwich was flavorful with the multiple meats, especially the hot capicola and loaded with vegetables. The fish tacos were mostly lettuce, very little fish. The fish were...overcooked, rubbery strips lacking in any flavor. The wait staff was informative and knowledgeable despite being recently hired.More

Had dinner here on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was great. We ate outside where there was live music. It’s too bad the food didn’t match the atmosphere. I had the fish chowder as an appetizer. It was good, however, the server dropped it off...without a spoon and oyster crackers. For an entree, I had the crab cake dinner. It was delivered without the fries. The crab cakes tasted like canned and the breading ratio was way too high. Quite unremarkable. Our server was very good.More

Pleasant staff and food definitely not outstanding. Fish tacos were not good. For such a simple item I’m not sure why SST’s hasn’t kept up with the times on this one. Our two salads were average and the chicken salad sandwich was good. Again pleasant...staff but needs an update on food and atmosphereMore

A friend and I came for lunch on a recent Saturday. Knowing how restaurants have struggled during The Covid-19 pandemic, I was happy to see the place full of diners at the socially distanced tables. In fact, we sat at the last available table. Despite...this struggle, I was NOT happy when I received my check and saw that I was charged extra because I asked for a side of mayo! Although the charge was minimal, it is the principle! It's a CONDIMENT, for crying out loud! I like my fries dipped in mayo, not ketchup. There is never an extra charge for ketchup! I resented this so much that it turned an enjoyable lunch into one that left a sour taste in my mouth. That being said, the fries were excellent and the drinks were as well! My sandwich was good and my companion liked her fried haddock sandwich. Perhaps this is not a management decision, but a whim of our server to up the total. She did not have to run back and retrieve it since I asked for it when I ordered and it did come with my meal. An issue to be addressed?More

Very tasty. I had the montana...sandwich barbeque steak, bacon and cheese sandwich. Wonderful! French onion soup was also good. Great menu and I bet after covid this would be a lot of fun!
