Great place, great location, uneducated crowd. What kind of brewpub serves Bud? Here's your answer. Playing pool here, I was shocked to see more bud bottles then pints. Do not be fooled .... this is a pickup bar. The beer on tap is outstanding, but most people come here to party and meet the opposite sex. I have been going here for years. The front part is a family dining area during the day, particullarly in the summer. But at night, voila! The food is standard pub food. Come and enjoy the beer, but keep in mind the atmosphere.

I've been here several times over the last 20 years. The location is fabulous and I have never been disappointed by the food. The beer is good, but not great.

We stopped for lunch while touring the Maine coast. Loved the location and view. The atmosphere is beachtown nice. Comfortable with a great view of the harbor. Quality was good but not great. Service was friendly but reserved and reasonably fast. Selection wasn't very good but the beer my husband tried he liked. It was Shipyard's Fuggles IPA. The flavor was very good but he doesn't find the piney or citrus flavors in the eastern IPA's. I had the pulled pork which was tasty but tough so I wouldn't recommend it. Hubby had the chowder which he said was great. Price on beer was reasonable but I thought the food was a little pricy for what we got. Probably wouldn't go back.

I have been her many times before, I am just now deciding to review it. It is a small brew pub, not a lot of seating. It is located on the second floor with a nice view overlooking Kennebunk Harbor. It has the atmosphere of a typical New England seafood place. Food was very good, serving high quality items and they suggest pairings with their beers, but a limited menu. Beer selection was ok for a brew pub, they were out of a couple of the beers on tap when I was their, seems odd even in an off season for a brewery to run out of its own beers. Not a bad place if you are in the area to go check out, but be prepared to spend some money there.
