This is Waterville's newest hot spot. The menu's secret is bacon and more bacon in every imaginable combination. It's a great place to listen to the outdoor concerts in the plaza in front of the Opera House, opposite ProperPig.

Saw there was a gastropub in Waterville and had to try. We stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the decor, menu and the rotating beer selections. Friendly servers. Can’t believe how much the city has changed....for the better.
