Awesome fresh cut steaks cooked to perfection. Perfect service and very pleasant surroundings. The meat market opened in Waterville, Maine on the 1930's. We celebrated Father's day in style.

Fabulous find! Overlooking the golf course on a beautiful fall day our selections were the house salad with grilled shrimp and chianti basil dressing and the Philly Cheesesteak flatbread. Both were fresh and wonderfully prepared. Thanks to Dan for being an attentive and friendly server.

OK, so any review can be based on what the area you are in has to offer.. This is one of the top offerings in the area. You can get great seafood, ribs, steaks/beef cuts, and burgers and salads. Another words, enough choices to satisfy...More
