The Wharf has been a mainstay since the late ‘70s
With its slogan being the "House of Music," The Wharf has been known over the years for the excellent Maine musicians it has been bringing to the establishment since the late 1970s to perform for folks who want to boogie, or simply sit on the screened-in porch and enjoy the tunes.
Tim and Laurie Connelly, the bar's current owners, have continued the Friday Happy Hour tradition, which runs from 5 to 8 p.m. and has been in place for several years. One thing that hasn’t changed at The Wharf for 20-plus years is the fellow behind the bar – the one and only Dave Pottle, who has been serving up drinks for countless weekends and many of festivities.
In addition, The Wharf has a Sunday evening jam night led by local musician Christine Poulson, from 5 to 9 p.m. and a Wednesday night jam led by Derek Savage.
For those who want a bite to eat, The Wharf offers pub faire and has a variety of beer and liquor to help wash it down.
Hours are 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday; 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday; and 4 to 10 p.m. Sunday.
Located off Water Street and along the banks of the Kennebec River, it’s a nice place to stop and enjoy the river view – you can even paddle down - and grab a bite to eat and listen to some tunes. You’ll be pleased with what you hear and see.
