Restaurant Menu

The Kennebec River Pub & Brewery’s restaurant menu is inspired by the flavors found in our craft beers. We take great pride in providing fresh food and drinks for our guests, and supporting local businesses when possible. Our fried food is hand-battered, and all of our chicken and haddock is marinated in fresh Kennebec River Brewery lager. We feature Pineland Farms Maine-raised all natural beef burgers, Maine- roasted Carrabassett Coffee, and fresh Maine Grains in our beer. We are committed to crafting fresh, flavorful, high-quality food and beer for the enjoyment of our guests. Cheers!
