Excellent whole body clams and clam chowder. Service was wonderful. The waitress even loaned me her phone since mine didn't get reception there. I highly recommend this restaurant especially for family and friends.

We went there with friends and as usual had a great meal with super service. They are downtown with a pleasing atmosphere.

We were there on a busy Saturday evening during Rockland's Summer Solstice Festival is all resturants were very busy along Main Street which was closed for festivities from 4-6. We walked up Lindsey St to try it out. Nice atmosphere with inside and outside seating. We sat inside. Our waiter was also the Bartender but he did an excellent job.... More

Let's be honest, you don't come in here for food... I had a pasta dish and it was absolutely revolting. I wanted so bad to like it and for it to be good, but it just wasn't. Come here for the drinks and apps and you probably will have a much better time than I did. On the plus side... More

We visited Waterworks for dinner on a cold, blustery day. The pub atmosphere fit the day and our mood. Make sure that you're hungry , though, if you have both appetizers and dinner, as the portions of both are large. The food was tasty and well-prepared. Had a very attentive and friendly waitress.

Our food is cold. The waitress could not multi-task. We waited forever for our food and drinks. We were told that they are always busy on a Friday nite so you would figure that they would be well staffed. Where we were they were not well staffed and the wait for everything was way too long. Get a grip. Customer... More

A place for a simple but tasty meal or a beer or drink, a sense of community, and warm welcome tuned to your pleasure, whether companionable or simply observant. It is a place where inhabitants of Rockland go for a good, straight up time and companionship. It is NOT pretentious, though it is far from plain. Whether a burger, or... More

Just off the Main Street in Rockland you will find the Waterworks, a fine pub that you won't go wrong with a burger or fish and chips. Choose from a selection of beers on tap or a glass of wine.
