I went to college in Bangor, and this was a frequent stop for most of those years. We recently stopped in while visiting friends and family. The place hasn't changed a bit. It's a very well lit building, with a lot of open space that gets jam-packed come weekend time. The bar is a horseshoe, and it usually packs in tightly there on weekends, also. A couple of pool tables and arcade games, with a plethora of flat-screens for all the Boston sports games. Also, when the weather permits, there is a good-sized deck overlooking the river, which can be absolutley amazing in the middle of fall. The service is hit-or-miss...sometimes the staff is great, prompt, and friendly, and other times it seems like a group of first-day trainees that hate life. The bar is usually the safest bet in terms of service. The food is decent, and there is a fairly wide selection to choose from. I recommend the clam chowder...my personal favorite. Also, fried pickles (not on the menu) which are damn tasty. The beers aren't bad, but at the same time are nothing to rave about. The Blue Paw tends to be the crowd favorite. Not terribly expensive, you can usually eat and have a few brews without killing your bank account.

Funny, for me at least, that I go more for the food and the view than I do the beers. Although they have good beers, as a craft beer enthusiast, I like them just OK. The restaurant/brewery and location are fine and I always enjoy myself there with friends and food and some brews.

Good food, better beer. Had a sampler that consisted of 13 different flavours of beer. In a nice location on the water, and the restaurant itself is huge. Looks newly renovated, really nice atmosphere. A good spot for a beer and/or a meal if you're in Bangor. Sea Dog beer is generally pretty good, average as far as flavours and styles, but downeast Maine isn't really ready for russian imperials and dipa's.
