We stopped in here for lunch and it was wonderful. The wait staffis very accommodating and helpful. The food is very good too. We ordered the black bean sliders and they were plentiful and delicious. We'll be back here again when we visit Portland.

Attempted to go there Thursday night with a small group. Bouncer, after already beeing rude when asked a question, wouldn't accept my spouce's valid, 21+, United States Green Card. Absolutely apaling. Claimed it was "owner's policy" and that was that. Well I'm not sure what rock this "owner" lives under, but it is absolutely a valid form of ID. Definitely... More

Rosies specializes in a few things. Everything. I reccamend the less traveled things, like a Reuben. Add a local beer, you have heaven. Its not expensive, has nearly something for everyone, and a good selection of local beers to sample. A great take out is the lobster bisque or New England style Clam Chowder. Or just have a bowl, and... More

Went looking for lobster rolls and tried Rosie's. Don't know if this was typical but the rolls were loaded with way too much Mayo on the meat.

One of the last sort of neighborhood bars. Casual bar atmosphere, friendly staff, good food, and some cheap beer. My friends loved it. I always have.

This place had a feel of a local pub, but the food was really good. I got the Motherload burger, which was bigger than my head. The quality was really good. Others got salads, soup, and sandwiches. Everyone really liked their meals. It had a really nice feel, as the staff was friendly and quick.

Met some friends here. Only been here a few times. Had a wonderful burger, and a great drink. It's a small place. Kind of a starter place where you meet up with your friends before you start bar crawling around Old Port. Good food, great drinks.
