I stopped in to appreciate their special offer for this day. Just a burger & fries, but exceptional!! It's a fun atmosphere; benches where parties can mix. Infectious upbeat environment. I definitely will be back soon with my wife to sample more menu choices. The...More

We stopped in as part of our food tour and sampled two beers...the seasonal sample was okay. The experience did not rate a return visit.

With the varied palates of customers, we understand at times we will not score a home run. We are sorry to learn the two beers you tried were not to your liking. We do appreciate you stopping in to give us a try.

Neat little Irish sports bar with good food and local craft beers. Try the shepherd's pie and a craft beer.

We visited briefly, as part of a walking tour. The two beers we tasted were very good; and the shepherd's pie egg roll was delicious...who would have thought of mixing English and Asian cuisines in this manner. Try it.

Typical Irish Sports Bar. We had a lunch snack with Minestrone soup which was very good. Waitress made a shandy so unable to rate the beers but they had a good range of beers

I run into that pub while I was on a meeting and had a little free time. I was there to drink a beer only, so no comments on the food. But the beer was really good and the bar looks very authentic.

The draw here is the beer. The stout was very nice. Dark and rich as you would expect. I did get a bowl of the chowder that was rather average. Little too thick for my tastes.

Description
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.
