The hostess are awful and rude to all. They weren’t doing anything and I saw them rolling their eyes to each other about customers multiple times. I work with people too and it’s not that hard to be kind to people- even in hard days....The previous time I was here I had terrible fries that were rock solid and this time the food wasn’t bad but the fries were cold. Brittany was by far very disrespectful to the business of serving. It got to a point where she just dropped a water on our table and goes “somebody ordered a water idk” and like dropped it. I understand people have bad days but I can say in my whole experience of working with people that even on my dark days, I still have the bare minimum of respect. A real shame.More

I understand that many restaurants are struggling with staffing issues, but that doesn't excuse non-existent service. After a day of getting ready for a construction project at camp, we were in the mood for a relaxed dinner out last Wednesday. We like Sarge's as they...have decent pub food and some of the best pizza in Rangeley. When we arrived, the hostess announced that the downstairs was short-staffed, and that should have been our cue to leave. Once seated, our server came to take our drink order, which arrived in short order and then took our order for dinner. That's when things started going seriously downhill. We both ordered haddock sandwiches, and after about 10 minutes our server came back to inform us that they couldn't make haddock sandwiches, although fish and chips was still available. We wondered why they just couldn't cut the haddock into bun sized pieces. Anyway, we waited and waited and waited and waited. Our server was buzzing around but avoided making eye contact, letting us know the status of the order, asking if we wanted more drinks, etc. After about an hour, and seeing people who arrived after us getting their food, we flagged her down to ask what was going on - and she was unable to answer. At that point I was frustrated and asked to pay for the drinks and leave. We ended up going home, where I made some Barber Foods frozen stuffed chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, and frozen peas, which was probably far superior to anything Sarge's could have dished out that night. I feel bad for the servers, as it is obvious that they are struggling with a heavy workload...but it has clearly reached the point where they don't care anymore. We won't be back for awhile, if ever. I would rather make frozen pizza at home.More

We were out driving around the area with my aunt from Florida, she wanted to come up and see snow. Stopped to have some lunch. Our waitress was very attentive and nice. She kept the refills coming without us asking. The food was good. I...had a haddock sandwich with curly fries. We all shared some onion rings and chicken wings. Everything seemed to be frozen and not made there, but it was good. The place looks like it was just renovated, nice, clean. I'd go backMore

I never write reviews but I was so happy with my experience that I just had to share it with others! Our bartender Krystal really helped make our visit a special one. Despite it being super busy, she was fast, attentive, courteous and really knocked...it out of the park. A lot of the staff seemed really moody because it was so busy but that girl just didn’t stop smiling. We never felt like we were left waiting yet she still thanked us for our patience which really made us feel like she cared about our overall experience. She even took the time to write down how she does her shiny lipstick and some brand recommendations so I can surprise my daughter for her birthday. I thought that was very sweet. I asked what kind of mixed drinks she’d recommend. Being on vacation, I wanted something a little special. She took the time to ask about my liquor and flavor preferences and ended up making me this delicious rum drink called a hurricane. She said she got the recipe back when she worked in New Orleans. It wasn’t overpowering but had a very nice tropical flavor to it. My mom had a cosmo and says it’s one of the best she’s ever had. We loved that she used fresh lime oppose to rose’s lime juice. We also tried some of her special blue lagoon shots. They tasted even better than they looked! Per her recommendation, we had the loaded chicken nachos - by far the best nachos we’ve ever had-,some buffalo tenders -the house made buffalo sauce is really good-,a small cheese pizza and a Sarge’s steak bomb. They were all cooked perfectly. We finished off with a cheesecake dessert that she took the time to decorate herself. The plating was beautiful and looked like a work of art with swirls of color. Certainly not something you’d expect at a Sport’s bar but that really made it extra special. I can’t say enough great things about my experience. We look forward to coming back the next time we’re in Rangeley.More

I have to preface this review by saying that we had some really poor experiences in Bar Harbor waiting for our food to be served, presumably due to staff shortages because of Covid. So by the time we got to Rangely, we were worried that...we would wait hours for our dinner. We were pleasantly surprised, when we entered Sarge’s, to be promptly seated. We were also properly served. The waitress was terrific and the food was good pub food. Not a place to go if you’re looking for healthy eating, but definitely comfort food. The batter on their chicken tenderloins was too heavy, though, and would have been improved if done with a lighter hand.More

Have eaten here many times and some menu items are great and others reminiscent of fast food. Avoid the haddock sandwich which is a Filet o Fish like disappointment but enjoy the pizza which tastes 10 times better reheated the next day. Nachos are generous...sized but dry. Salads are good. Tasty burgers and fries. Can get a little noisy but it’s really more of a bar.More

After checking into our B&B, we left for dinner. The B&B's Innkeeper recommended Sarge's Sports Pub & Grub for dinner. The innkeeper said when they go for dinner they share Sarge's Prime Rib Steak & Cheese Bomb - Prime rib, mushrooms, onions and peppers on...a sub roll, served with fries. We were rewarded by following their recommendation and shared that meal. It was well prepared and delicious. The generous portion was more than enough to share and be satisfied. We didn't even finish all the fries! The restaurant was crowded but the noise level was low. Service was excellent even though they were short staffed due to COVID.More

This place is great! Atmosphere is your typical New England pub; long bar, tv’s, high top tables, large tables for groups, great music being played. Staff is super friendly, menu is great with a variety for everyone. The steak bomb sub, chowder, chili and burgers...are the best! This place is working their tails off with limited staff and they are making it happen! It is great to visit Rangeley and have this gem to eat at. I recommend a visit to this place and many other great places in town, but leave the sh*tty attitudes at the bridge before coming to town. We all come up to visit to get away from it all, but some seem to bring it with them. Stay home if you can’t be nice. Thank you Jaime, Crystal and staff you guys kill it!More

Service was poor. We were seated right away but One of our party had to go up to the bar to enquire what was going on after 20 + minutes of waiting. Then the excuses started. I’m sorry but your staffing problems are NOT mine....If you don’t have enough staff then don’t seat people. Don’t crowd the place then expect people to wait 30+minutes for food and then make excusesMore

We had lunch here. Burgers and beer. Very good. I had the cheeseburger - $13. Sarge's is reliable and consistent sports bar and pub. Classic pub food (pizza, burgers, wings, nachos, and such). Seems to be open when the rest of town is closed -...the liveliest spot on Main Street in Rangeley. On street parking and off-street parking (across the street). Good value. Great service. Excellent pub food. They do pub food about as well as any pub/bar does. We will go back.More
