Large portions of great food. Very nice atmosphere and friendly service. A bit too pricey to eat there regularly. Would be a regular if prices were a little lower. Currently I go only about once per month. Would recommend it for great diner style food if you can afford it.

Great breakfast, always. Good coffee. Fresh, homemade flavor. Cute atmosphere. Hurrah for something that isn't a chain restaurant. Come visit Waterville for breakfast or lunch. Take a walk on the river, and visit the shops afterwards. Thanks Dale for improving our town.

My husband and I have been to Dale's Bar and Grill many times and decided one Sat. to
go out for breakfast. We went to Dale's in Waterville. What a great experience! Love the
old town feel and the hostess (Mary) and our waitress were so nice and asked if it was our
first time. We said yes, and our waitress suggested some of the items but indicated that they
ALL were good. I chose the pancakes as I had heard they were yummy. My husband chose
the Eggs, sausage and hash brown skillet. Both of us were so pleased with our food, that
we said this is a Keeper. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere is quaint but clean and remolded and up to date. We will Definitely go back. Maybe next time, we will try lunch.
Great!

There are few places to eat in the Waterville area and Dale's has been a nice addition. The menu looks pretty basic but the food, at least for breakfast, is definitely a step above. Unfortunately, we've also experienced some poor service at Dale's on a couple of occasions. There are a number of young waitresses and I believe this is where the problem occurs. No experience waitressing and no idea of what to do beyond the bare minimum. The first time we went, we ate inside and even though it was quite busy, this experienced waitress was able to attend to us well. Maybe they make the youngsters serve the outside tables & more experienced staff get the inside tables? With the recent changes in weather, that should change!
