We came for dinner and found the food to be disappointing. Worse, the seats were wooden benches. For a quick drink, this is fine. For a long dinner, it's torture.

Why at the bar? Why appetizers? The restaurant can become very busy, even though this place is deceivingly large. When we arrived there was a thirty minute wait, which isn't unusual if you're there at peak lunch and dinner periods. So, after finding we couldn't...More

Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-five years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
