First time here 4/23 around 4pm. Wife and I had seen there menu on line and beer list. Fairly good selection of local (maine) craft beers, even only one of their own. We both ordered burgers. The bartender was waiting tables since it was early...I think. We both ordered different burgers. I ordered a burger with swiss and mushrooms and onion rings. Wife ordered a burger with an egg and broccoli on side. Hers was cooked right and tasty yet broccoli we thought was steamed (cold). Mine was odd, as most places that had mushroom swiss burgers do not put tomato on it, but still the burger was good though the swiss cheese not melted and cold even. The onion rings were thin and breaded and delicious yet "cold". We didnt wait long for our food, think we were the only ones eating, but very disappointed in having parts of our meal cold. Guessing lack of attention to quality in the kitchen. I mentioned that parts were ice cold to waitress/bartender and she apologized and offered to get a warm onion ring but I told her it was not her fault and no need. She ended up taking some money off our tab which was appreciated yet not expected. Not sure we would ever return, but maybe just bad timing on our part.More

We took advantage of another warm day this Spring and visited for lunch. The chef and staff provided a great tasting lunch and cold beverages. My wife had a great hamburger/fries for lunch. I tried the nachos and noticed they were lacking in toppings. Hope...the restaurant reads the review and improves.More

We enjoyed one last warm day in November to visit for lunch. The food was great tasting and the varied selection of Maine microbrews was appreciated. The server was pleasant, the meals came out quick and especially appreciated the Covid protocols in place in the...outdoor dining setup.More

Went here on a Friday night. Beer selection is OK, but with a restaurant with Brews in the name I would expect a much better selection. I had a burger that was good not great.

food was typical pub food,nothing to rave about. It is time to update and remodel, bringing new life into the business. Appearance is somewhat run down.

Meal was slow, it took a while to get our food and it was cold. The lobster was plentiful in the lobster bowl.

We enjoyed coconut encrusted haddock sandwiches with cole slaw and our choice of sides. The food was excellent and there was a huge beverage menu in this brew pub. Great choice for lunch, but I bet it’s fun later in the day. Nice dinner entrees...and often live entertainment.More

Luckily it was nice weather so we could sit outside. I’d never return due to the filthy, dark, musty interior- no windows- feels like a scary basement inside!! Food was typical bar fare. Also, there was a 7% craft brew advertised in 2 sizes on...the menu. According to our waitress, the bar tender wouldn’t let me have the larger size because it’s a higher alcohol content. What?!?! So I “asked permission” for a second beer. Thanks for “allowing” me a second one (rolls eyes). Weird place.More

While the atmosphere was good, the overall experience was just ok. The lobster quesadilla was good and the clam chowder was alright but nothing special. The London and Munich burgers were pretty delicious but again, nothing to really rave about. However, they were out of...six different beers before I found one they actually had in. Now onto the bad. We ordered the wings dusted in salt and vinegar. Before they came out I had ordered the fries with my burger dusted as well. The menu said 'lightly dusted'z both the wings and fries were smothered in the powder. We didn't finish the wings and I actually got a chemical burn on my lips from the amount of powder on my fries (I could only eat a few). Overall we didn't hate it, but are not in a hurry to go back.More
