We took Mom to lunch today at Gritty's. We chose to sit outside on a beautiful breezy Saturday afternoon. As we walked through the pub, it was a comfortable temperature but the sunshine on the riverfront was too good to pass up. Our server greeted...More

Your review is greatly appreciated. It's wonderful to hear about your family experience because that's very much what the pub is about - community. We are thrilled to hear we helped create a good family memory, and will hope to see you all again soon....More

I go there just about every Sunday for Music Bingo. This is one of my favorite local stops as I can see live bands on the weekends along with excellent food... and beer of course!

We stopped here on our way back from the river walk. Newbies in town and did not have our regular kind of beer. Gave us generous sample sizes to choose from. Great beer! We did not eat there due to not taking wallet on walk.

Stopped for lunch while in the area. Lunch on the outside deck. Pleasant day with lots of sunshine. I had the BBQ pulled pork in a roll. The roll was very fresh and the pork cooked just right. Good food for reasonable price.

We had lunch here and sat on the deck rather than the inside, as it was a really sunny day with a moderate breeze. The food was fine, the service was prompt and professional, and the views of the Androscoggin and walking path were relaxing...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.
