Went there this past weekend from souht of Boston for my birthday. Got there first for lunch on Saturday. The place is filled with great beer paraphenalia, and loved that! Small but cozy bar with maybe 10 seats, a few tables in the bar area, and a larger room with more tables for larger parties, looking out on a Donald Ross course!
It was kind of slow, so my wife and I sat at the bar. Had very helpful and attentive service from the waitress/bartender upon arrival; she made us feel right at home. Chris, the owner was also around, and I had told him a week before I was coming, so he guessed correctly and we talked lots about his place, beer, and life. I drank a couple of Belgian ales and ate the Killer Chicken sandwich for lunch. Great sandwich, and great beer. I was extremely fortunate to also get a tour of Chri's cellar, which was a humbling and incredible experience. I can't imagine that there is anywhere in the world quite like it. All I can say is WOW!
Took a few hour break and returned for dinner, and more drinks. Drank a couple of bottles of Schneider Aventinus from 2007 and 2008 that were amazing, along with a couple of Belgians that were very good. I had the Sausage Fest for dinner and was very pleased. It was tasty and huge, a perfect coimbination. Later in the evening as the place thinned out a little and it was just the two waitresses/bartenders running the whole place, frankly it wasn't easy to get their attention at the bar seats, but I would go back in a heartbeat.
We drove 3.5 hours each way basically to go to a pub, and I am very, very happy that I did it. I honestly can't wait to do it again. I loved everything about the place; well the service toward the end could have been better, but it didn't spoil the experience.
I highly suggest getting to Ebenezer's, a must, must journey for any serious beer lover. We also stayed the night at the Old Saco Inn, which was lovely and also very pleasant. Thanks Chris!

Simply amazing. We had 5 small children with us and we were so very well taken care of given our crew. The beer selection, knowledgeable and friendly staff ( Sir Chris et al), and the location in picturesque Western Maine (on the fringes of the Saco River and the White Mountains) made it surpassingly enjoyable.

Great selection of draft Belgium's you won't find too many places, except maybe in Bruges. Lots to choose from, with the true sour Lambics, IPA's, Dubbels, Tripel’s, Strongs and Saisons, you get the picture. The staff is somewhat knowledgeable, well, much better in past visits. The owners were not on site the day we visited and I think they were short staffed. I went with several friends to have some appetizers and some special beer and take in the Patriots game. It turned out to be a complete sh*t show!

Took at least a half hour to get a drink, by that point everyone was annoyed. The last time at Ebenezer’s we experience very slow service, but chalked it up as being in Maine, “can’t get there from here”. This was the straw that broke the camel’s preverbal back, I will not go back to this establishment unless the owner calls me to tell me he has just tapped a new keg of Black Albert and are not serving it until I arrive. Truly the owners need to hire Jon Taffer from Bar Rescue to straighten this place out. The bathroom looked like an old frat house bathroom I may have visited a few times, doesn’t say much for cleanliness. I always check the bathroom in a bar/restaurant, good indicator of what the kitchen will look like, never ordered food in fear it would arrive the day after.

We received a first beer, slugged it down as if we were playing a good game of quarters and paid the bill and left. As I see it, we would have spent all afternoon there enjoying the fine selection of beers and some food. They lost out on a lot of money, but maybe they don’t really care. Sorry Ebenezer’s, I won’t be back and neither will 12 of my friends. This visit took place on Octover 13th 2013.
