I was expecting much more from my first trip to Gritty McDuff's. I tried their sampler of beers. The IPA was the only beer that got my attention, and they don't bottle it. The place looks very rustic from the outside and as you enter, there is a fairly large store on the right that is set apart from the restaurant where they sell all their t-shirts, bottled beer, pint glasses and several other items. I tried an appetizer and the wife tried a dessert. The food was good. There is large fenced-in area for the kids to run around, almost like a pen. It gave the impression you were on a farm with a pond nearby. The mosquitos kept attacking me as I attacked the beer sampler. Anyway, to sum it up. It was a fun place to visit, but the beers just were not that great. I did purchase a bottle of the Gritty's Best Bitter and drank it later during the New England tour. It was OK.

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.
