We went there for a drink after dinner. There was a great rock band playing, and we had some fabulous draft beer. Fun night!

It's in the old post office building and has a patio. Lots of craft beer choices. We had lunch here--mozzarella bites, crab dip and Philly cheesesteak. The food was good but did take awhile (15 min for app, 30 min after that for meal).

We were looking for a place to eat with a patio in Waterville. Mainly Brews did not disappoint. I had the lobster and shrimp pasta that came with a very tasty sherry-cream sauce--in going to try to re-create that one at home. My son had a nice Halibut sandwich and my wife had the chicken salad--too big to eat at... More

We went here with a group for drinks. They have craft beer on tap. We had the ahi tuna appetizer - in a bar. It was outstanding. Pieces of seared tuna on fried wontons topped with seaweed salad and wasabi sauce. A perfect combination.

We booked Mainely Brews for my brother's rehearsal dinner. There were about 20 attendees including out of town guests and we were able to get a separate room which was great. I worked directly with Kelly to plan the party and Sandra was our waitress for the evening. Everything was fantastic from the initial contact with Kelly for menu planning... More

Have been going every week for a few years and have watched the service and quality of food deteriorate. Often times having to send my food back for either being under cooked or burnt. Get dirty glasses and once I was told that it was O.K. because it was probably my lipstick from the week before because I am the... More
