Stopped in on 7/18/09. I've been to Ebenezer's before and I've experienced Chris's hospitality, so I was expecting more of the same. I wasn't disappointed at all. The atmosphere is lively, yet relaxed. The beer selection is second to none. I had a bottle of Cantillon Gueze, Abt. 12, and a berliner weiss on tap. The waitress wasn't as well versed on the beer selections as I would've liked, but the place has only been open for a few weeks, so you can't hold her at fault. I highly recommend the Lion's Pride.

Only 14 taps were pouring when I was there (8/31/13) so the number of selections was not as I had hoped. What was there though was fine, although it was tipped in Allagash's favor on this day (4 taps). I had Alvinne Wild Undressed. Mort Subite White Lambic. Oxbow Original Deluxe.

Service was little slow, but I landed on a day of cooler problems, so this slowed the pours down tremendously. Tim the beeroligist was exceptional though---lots of knowledge and friendly.

I chose a burger for food, with frites. My cohort selected a chicken sandwich. Both were very good. I suspect anything picked food-wise would be good.

Prices were a bit steep (8-9 bucks for the more rare entries, 7-ish for the others). What can you do though? You want good beer. You must pay.

If I were a local this would undoubtedly be my goto place.

I stopped in here last night for supper, I sat near the bar and stared at the tap list for most of the time I was there. 35 taps lots of bottles in a couple of coolers behind the bar. All quality stuff you won't see well almost anywhere else. I had steak tips and also frites to eat and I thought both were done really well and the potato ball thing is different and tasty. The staff was quite attentive to my needs in fact I think all three of them waited on me at one time or another. Great selection service and food. Pricing is a bit on the high side, I think there were only 3 draft lines with pours that were under 9 dollars, and one I paid 14 for. I guess the pricing is keeping in step with the rarity of the selection, just be prepared to drop some coin. I'd gladly go back when in the area.

This place has gone seriously downhill! Such a bummer....used to be my favorite beer restaurant. The Lion’s Pride used to have a fantastic staff. Leigh, Ryan and Katie are greatly missed. I don’t know where the owners found their current staff or what happened with the previous staff, but the new staff is inattentive, doesn’t know much about the product, and clearly has no concept of how to run a restaurant. My wife and I used to go to the Lion’s Pride at least twice a week. We no longer do, after having multiple bad experiences with the new staff. Many of our friends have also stopped going. The last time my wife and I went to the Lion’s Pride, towards the end of February, we were both presented with completely different beers than we ordered! The food seems to have gone downhill as well. We used to love the burgers and fish & chips, but lately everything has been either overly greasy or way overdone. Again, such a bummer.
