4.83/5  rDev +1.7%
vibe: 4.5 | quality: 5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | food: 5 | $$

A: Smaller than I expected, at least in terms of the bar. Lots of tables in back and outside, but the bar only seats about 7 or 8. Luckily, my wife and I were able to snag a couple of seats there, next to another BA couple who we ended up talking to quite a bit. Very homey, comfortable place... lots of regulars, everyone seemed very friendly. Soft, old music playing in the background. One TV, I think, sound turned off.

Q + Selection: As good as you've heard. The 35 taps lean heavily towards Belgian beers, of course, and they're great selections. The bottle coolers have a lot of great stuff too.

F: Awesome. We shared a quesdilla appetizer and I had the Chimay burger later... both were fantastic.

Service: What can I say that hasn't already been said? We briefly met Chris, who had to leave early to head to the OTHER awesome place (Lion's Pride), so we barely missed out on a cellar tour... but I wouldn't rate this place based on whether I got a cellar tour or not <cough>. However, the generosity from Chris and Jen, who luckily for us was there most of the evening, was just unbelievable. I'll keep it short: 3F Straffe Winter, Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek 2008, Russian River Beatification. 'Nuff said.

I don't know how Maine manages to have so many awesome beer bars, but I'm glad they do... and glad I don't live TOO far away. We'll be back. The place is awesome.

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.
