About us

Established in 2016, The Proper Pig began with a dream and a mahogany bar as part of Waterville’s downtown revitalization project.  

Co-owners, Fred Ouellette and Bill Mitchell, wanted a fun, yet casual atmosphere where patrons could sample local craft beers and good food.  

From appetizers including pulled pork nachos, bacon dusted fries, and pork belly mini-buns to the pulled pork “Piggly Wiggly” sandwich and the “Big, Bad, Wolf” burger, the unique menu showcases the creativity and unique recipes of Ouellette.  

His motto, “Brine your mind, while you dine on swine,” is sure to excite Waterville for years to come.
