This place is located in downtown Portland, ME. It is a decent sized place with a good sized bar. I checked this place out at night when it was rocking hard. The place was packed solid with two musical acts playing at the same time.

It had two levels with each their own identity. The upper level was the frat house and 30+ crowd. The scenery was outstanding, that's for sure. It made the atmosphere that much better. The lower level was a jazz type bar with the cool, trendy crowd dominating. I wanted to get down there, but it was impossible to move in any direction.

The quality was decent, but nothing special. They had the typical brewpub selection with a cool Halloween beer which I drank all night. The service was a bit suspect, but I've got to believe it would have been better if it weren't so packed.

I didn't have any food, but this was a cool college hangout. The beer was not bad and the atmosphere ruled. This is a place to remember.

On my trip to Portland, I decided to stop by Gritty McDuff's. Upon entering the establishment, there is a bar area with a downstairs, an entrance to sit out in the back cobblestone street, and a long dining room area where you can sit yourself on long refectory tables. The atmosphere of the place was definitely social in what appeared to be a classic pub-style environment, with wood and brick making up the interior designs of the place. I ordered the fish and chips for my supper, and although the portions seemed small, I was satisfied by the meal. For drinks, I had the Original Pub Style beer and then the Black Fly Stout. The Pub Style beer was my favorite of the two. Service was a bit slow and our waitress took awhile for some drink orders. However, I noticed she was the only wait staff in our room, so that may have been the main problem.

I have always liked Gritty's beers, so it was a fun to finally eat at their pub in Portland
