The Waldoboro Planning Board gave the go-ahead to two proposed restaurants at its March 13 meeting.

First, a change of use from retail to restaurant was approved at 14 Washington Road, the former site of Burnham's Bloomers.

Vickey and Ralph Jones plan to operate Ollie's, a lunch wagon that will offer hot dogs, hamburgers, various subs and wraps, ice cream and other food items.

The couple owned and operated Ollie's in Jefferson, before closing to care for an ill relative. While in Jefferson, the couple gave back to the community by buying a scoreboard for the upper sports field and donating gift cards for raffles, among other things.

"We plan to donate to the children in the Waldoboro area," they said in their application.

The couple plan to offer six picnic tables where patrons can eat, and will also offer delivery service. The restaurant is projected to open in mid-April. Hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.

The second restaurant passing the site review was Odd Alewives Farm Brewery at 99 Old Route 1.

John and Sarah McNeil, who opened the brewery last year, plan to build a small commercial kitchen on the premises to prepare wood-fired pizza and small snacks.

"We are looking to introduce a wood-fired oven to offer food on certain nights of the week and to continue to be able to collaborate with other food producers with special events," Sarah said. "We would also be able to grow produce in our gardens to support our kitchen in addition to beer-making."

The McNeils said that, unlike traditional restaurants, they will not be changing their liquor license to allow for wine, spirits or other beers to be sold. Only their own  farmhouse ales, produced on the premises, will be available for sale and consumption.

Sarah said the restaurant will not likely be open until July, as they have some construction to do for the kitchen and wood-fired oven.

Odd Alewives Farm Brewery is open Thursdays and Fridays from 3 to 8 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m.
