Went here with my wife and daughter during our first visit to Maine this weekend. The interior is very attractive. To the right is a dark, cozy bar with a live band performing, while the dining room was well lit and tastefully decorated; Irish without being over the top. We had a bit of wait for our table (30 minutes even though we had only 1 group ahead of us).
The beer selection was quite impressive; 8-9 taps (nothing too exotic, but included Leffe, Boddingtons, and some local brew). The bottle selection made up for the taps; we were given a separate beer menu that I'm guessing had 40-50 beers. I went with a DFH Saison Du Buff, and was a little disappointed when I was served just the bottle and no glass. The Leffe I had from the tap was served in the correct glassware however.
Food was fairly tasty. The nacho's O'Houlihan make it worth the trip alone, and my bangers and mash were very good. My wife thought the wings were a little dry and the chowder was a little short on clams, but overall thought it was fairly tasty.
Overall, the pricing was quite fair, and the staff were quite pleasant. I hope we will make it back to Maine again soon, and this is a place we would certainly visit again.

My wife and I had dinner here on a fairly busy Saturday night in September. This used to be a Mexican restaurant; I liked this incarnation.
As you enter, there is a pub on the right with a bar and tables. Nice-looking bar, and of course there is a TV in there. On the left are two rooms with tables, which I guess is the restaurant side. In the back right there is a lounge area, with nice seating but not much else. It looks like an overflow area where people go to wait for a table. Earth tones for the walls, simple decorating theme, understated and not overdone. We felt very comfortable.
Interesting beer list. The beers on tap are, to my mind, mediocre at best. There's Guinness, Smithwick, Harp, Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Hoegaarden, Boddington, Leffe Blonde, and PBR. However, the bottled beers more than make up for the shortcomings of the draft list. Well over 50 bottles, and someone has spent a lot of time assembling these beers. Maine beers are represented by Geary's, Shipyard, Sebago, Allagash, Atlantic, and Kennebec River. Some of the beers from away are DFH, Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn, Rogue, Victory, North Coast, and Hooker, to name a few. Lots of great beers in bottles, not so much on tap. For the non-beer drinker, my wife says they make a terrific cosmo.
The menu is pretty standard. I had bangers and mash, since it's an Irish restaurant. They were good. The mashed potatoes were cheddar mashed, a nice touch. My wife had a pork porterhouse braised in Shipyard Pumpkinhead. Really wonderful.
Service was OK, not bad but not great.
We enjoyed this place, and will go back again.
