My wife Karen and I made the pilgrimage from Pennsylvania to Lovell, Maine last week, with the main reason being to visit Ebenezer's obviously. There's not a lot else in Lovell really, other than the typical gorgeous scenery you expect to find in Maine. It was well worth the trip. We went to Ebenezer's 3 of the 4 nights we were there, with one much needed dry night that involved no alcohol. The beer selection is amazing, and even if you're an experienced Belgian drinker, you're likely to find at least a few on tap you've never had. As for the bottles, basically if there's something you'd like to try, just ask Chris or Jen and there's a good chance they'll have it. I was thrilled to finally be able to try Portsmouth's Kate the Great the first night we were there. Chris also gave us a tour of the beer cellar, which was worth the trip by itself. The owner of the #1 beer bar in the world giving us a personal tour...definitely cool. I had an incredible beer on tap called "My Blueberry Nightmare", an Italian blueberry sour stout (more sour than stout) that went down way too easily for something that was 11% and $10/glass. In addition to the beer, the food is absolutely top-notch. The first night, I had by far the best coconut shrimp dish I've ever had, and Karen had an excellent pizza that was obviously hand-tossed. Our second night, she had a cheesesteak she says is the best she's ever had, which is impressive considering we usually make several trips to Philadelphia per year. Overall, just an amazing experience that I hope to repeat someday.

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.
