Only go here once or twice a month, usually when the students are gone. Food is always good. Service can be slow, depending on the size of the crowd.

This was a nice place to get a bite to eat in Orono. The food was good and the service was too. Would return if I happened to be in Orono again!

This bars drinks are way overpriced. Also my credit card was double charged for one of the drinks, which I was not happy with. I eventually got my bank to fix the double charge. I will not be returning to this bar again!

Try it, you will definitely like it! This unique establishment is quaint, cozy and offers some really good craft brews with hardy bar food. Good service and easy access. Parking to the rear.

We enjoyed two meals while we were staying in the area. The food is excellent and the service and kitchen staff do a wonderful job. The only thing is the meals are really big portions but you can take the left overs home with you.
