sister restaurant of the Portland based grittys, a fun place to visit, but the food is a lot better than the beer. I worked my way through the whole lineup, but was unimpressed by any of them, even finding the ipa to be quite poor. the lobster rolls and lobster mac and cheese were right on though, as was the rhubarb dessert. maybe six or seven beers on, in an open seating loud beer hall type setting. big back deck and yard, and one of those places where you sit with strangers, which is cool if you are traveling. service was decent considering how busy it was, and again, the food was very good. not really a beer destination though, I found them all to be generic and weak in some ways, undercarbonated, and similar in a bad way. the fermenters were neat though, insulated with brick, never seen that before. overall a good stop for a meal on the maine brewery trip, but the beers were less than stellar, and that's the most important thing.

Stopped here for lunch the other day. Beer selection was OK, as they have the standard Gritty’s fare. The beers are good, with a fairly varied selection. the food was fairly standard pub offerings. It was tasty and was served quickly. The service was also good. Well worth a stop when in the area.

Stopped for a quick lunch on my way up to Maine beer company to see what the brewery had to offer...never heard of gritty mcduffs before got a decent chicken sandwich and an ipa...sandwich was decently common, as was beer. They had a nice outside deck to appreciate the Maine weather

A stop before the Freeport Outlet shops, this brewpub offers a decent place for a lunch and beverage before hitting the stores. Seating at long tables. This place feels like someone converted their garage into a bar (on that budget).
Beer is fresh and there is enough variety on tap to satisfy picky palates. Food is decent pub fare, with some tasty twists. But if you want fish or a burger, you are all set. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and all elements were in the appropriate price range.
Overall, if this particular place was located in a downtown area in a bigger icty, it might just die there. it certainly, as far as atomosphere is concerned, is nothing like the Portland location. But the beverages and food measure up. And it is by far the best place to check out if hitting the shopping outlets.
