You have to go out of your way to get to downtown Waldoboro, but it's worth the diversion. The Narrows Tavern is a classic "Cheers" pub complete with locals, and good pub fare. Definitely worth the stop.

Decorations include a gigantic, antique map of Maine next to a painting of an individual who's portrait was adorned with can of Old Milwaukee... More

A friend and I found this little tavern tucked away in the town of Waldoboro. Being vegetarians we always need to check the menu to see if there is anything for us to eat. We were pleasantly surprised to find 4 selections not counting the salads. The food was great, inexpensive, and served hot! The tavern itself is very cute.... More

We stopped in to this little tavern after a long drive on Easter. Very surprised to find something open so we took advantage. Sat at the bar and was greeted by a very nice bar tender. Decent beer, decent food, and a sea captain playing shanties on the banjo?!

The Narrows is an unassuming community tavern very good food, a wide assortment of draft beers as well as the bottled standards. The place opens at 11am. The food is substantial, prepared on site, neither effete nor bulk freezer to fryer as is 'way too common along this coast. The clientele includes most of the locals... Professionals, clammers, retired folks...The... More

Dined at the Narrow's Tavern on a recent Friday evening with my family. This is a small, local's spot with picnic tables and a small bar. The waitstaff was friendly, and many of the tables were full. Soon after our departure, entertainment was to start, taking up the space of one of about seven tables. We chose this establishment based... More

Driving back from Rockland, decided to stop at Narrow's Tavern. An unexpected experience. The place was hopping with lots of laughter. ( Happy Hour ) The bartender/waitress came over to our table with a smile and the right attitude. My husband is a beer drinker and they had plenty on tap to choose from. We both ordered the haddock rueben,... More

A really terrific little local place if you're in midcoast Maine with a "Cheers"-like atmosphere. Mostly filled with charming, musically talented locals instead of tourists. First, it has great entertainment on Tuesdays and Fridays, local folks who play great folk-based music along with other styles. The Tuesday night atmosphere had people dancing in the "aisles", including grandmothers and small children... More
